Show us a coin you’ll probably never sell...

Here’s one I just picked up. I’ll probably never sell it. Not because I like it, but because it might have been struck in CC.

    Every single coin I own is available TODAY....at the right price.

    @braddick, awesome '68 half!

    Always looking for original, better date VF20-VF35 Barber quarters and halves, and a quality beer.

    1804 dollar, 1913 nickel, 1933 Saint. I’ll also never own them...

    Smitten with DBLCs.

    Not likely in my lifetime, but it would probably be the first to go.

    These statues were symbols of the city’s great economic reserves making this a true moment of desperation for Athens. The gold from these statues was minted into coins and used to construct a new fleet of ships to attempt a naval retaliation. Because of their value, to protect against forgeries, the dies used to strike the coins were stored in the Parthenon treasury in an alabaster box.

    Great history on these pieces. Are the dies still known to exist?

    The gold buffalo proofs that correspond with my grandchildren's birth years. They're parting gifts.

    Unfortunately no, they've been lost to history. I'd love for them to be found to get a "First Strike" restrike though!
