    Nice pickup. I like the reverse coloring around the mintmark area.

    An some point, an "upgraded widget" becomes a non-widget. I'm not sure where the line is drawn, however. ;)

    One collector's widget is another's pride and joy.

    “I got it. I got it. Why don’t we nuke them?” [Trump said] according to one source who was there. “They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?” the source added, paraphrasing the president’s remarks.

    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

    I think the obverse toning is pretty neat too.

    To some, it may be a widget... to others, it can be a treasure. I saw a man at a gun show once, and he was so proud of a 1916 D dime he bought there at the show for $300... and it was, IMO, a VF35...maybe a tad better..... He stopped at all the tables saying..."Look what I just got."... Most people did not know it was a valuable coin... but he had hit the jackpot. Cheers, RickO
