Just because threads are better with pics - my nicest SGC card for the grade
A new $20 for my complete $20 Gold Date Set Thanks Doug Winter
My favorite from my collection; IMHO proved my original theory the counterfeiters used cull large cent for their planchetts when they started. Coin's metallurgical testing was correct, but the star in front of the face and additional letters on the reverse lead to the discovery it was struck over a later dated genuine large cent.
I hope they'll create a Set Registry that allows for PSA and SGC cards. That would make me happy.
I am very slowly working backwards on proof coins, this one being from 1951:
I thought this would go 67 but it stayed 66. Glad to finally have a TrueView of it, though!
Every dealer does things his own way, of course. FWIW, I've never refused a check from a collector, but I'll occassionally ask if I can ship the coin once the check has cleared.
The 1849 half dime has multiple overdate varieties.
V-2 (V-6 uses the same obverse, but the overdate is less apparent)
V-4 (V-5 uses the same obverse, but the overdate is less apparent)
V-8 (RPD, not overdate)
1807/6 1C LARGE 7, F12
Nice quality & toning for this common date:
