  • cecropiamothcecropiamoth Posts: 654 ✭✭✭✭

    Nothing short of an absolutely incredible collection!!

  • Bob13Bob13 Posts: 298 ✭✭✭✭

    Really enjoy your collection. I feel like I have drooled over many of these on the Atlas Numismatics website at some point!

    Other than stunning eye appeal, any theme that you are going for? Or do you simply buy things that you like?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you! I really just buy things that I like, although I do try to combine top eye appeal and top certified grade when I can.

    Bump for a new addition:
    Germany Third Reich 1935-F 5 Mark, PCGS PR68DCAM

    Also might as well add these two "ex-Rex" coins that I've previously owned:
    Great Britain 1907 Maundy Twopence, PCGS PL69

    Great Britain 1937 "Frosted V.I.P" Crown (only example known), PCGS PR66DCAM

  • That Third Reich proof is pretty impressive. I also like the look on the penny.

    Fantastic 5 mark !

    Two new additions:

    German 1913 Copper Pattern 3 Mark Schaaf-52G1, PCGS SP66RB




    French 1795 silver Freemasonry Medal, PCGS AU58, for the Masonic Lodge of Perfect Equality in Rouen. A Masonic lodge is the basic organizational unit of Freemasonry, commonly used as a term for a building in which Freemasons meet, or for the group itself that is meeting. Freemasons gather together as or at a lodge to work as the three basic "Degrees" of Freemasonry: Apprentice, Journeyman, and Master Mason.

    Obverse: Two skeletons, the one at right crowned and with a scepter in hand, the one at left holding a level and a shepherd's staff, each standing at one side of a central altar topped with an open book; above, an illuminated delta inscribed with the Hebrew name of God; on either side, columns engraved with the letters "B" and "J", for Boaz and Jachin, the pillars on the porch of Solomon's Temple. Columns representing Boaz and Jachin can be found in most Masonic Lodges, and are emblematic of their use in Masonic rituals as a representation of Solomon's Temple.

    Reverse: The Square and Compasses logo with G (usually for Geometry) in blazing central pentagram, acacia branches intertwining throughout, star below / LOGE DE LA PARFAITE ÉGALITÉ O∴ DE ROUEN.
