    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.

    The pardon is for tyrants. They like to declare pardons on holidays, such as the birthday of the dictator, or Christ, or the Revolution (interchangeable concepts in many of these countries). Dictators should be encouraged to keep it up. And we should be encouraged to remember that the promiscuous dispensation of clemency is not a sign of political liberality. It is instead one of those valuable, identifying marks of tyranny.

    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
