    I prefer the reverse designs “tails” over the “head” obverse designs as Washington’s
    hair looks like spaghetti. They are both very beautiful designs.

    Another confusing post, as others have mentioned.

    @znc Many of the posts are from members who have a question or are looking for advice. If you're just sharing pics of your coins, that's fine, but it helps if add something like "just sharing...." to avoid confusion. If you do have a question, you need to be clear and not leave a cryptic message

    "Smooth and thin preservation"

    I'd like the OP to explain what he means;
    until, then, I'll just think 'Honeybaked Ham slices'

    Do you really care? If you've been following their threads, they are all like this. Random picture with a confusing title. Then, if you dare to question them, they get nasty.

    Yeah, there seems to be a steady drumbeat of people horsing around...

    Shouldn't that be a steady hoofbeat of people horsing around...

    The amount of actual numismatic discussion going no here is asymptotically approaching zero. Between threads like these and the complaint threads (PCGS, eBay, USPS), suddenly coin roll hunting is the pinnacle of numismatica.

    No, I wanted to give both coins some recognition. B)

    Welcome aboard.
    Don't be discouraged by some of the posts here. Many people are doing hard time and time out at home. lol
    Try to be a little more descriptive in what you are showing and asking. The more accurate you are with your post, the better the experts here can help you with an answer.

    what they think when they see “properly stored and developed coin

    I think I don't know what properly stored and developed means.

  • jmlanzafjmlanzaf Posts: 30,310 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @ZNC said:
    ...well...ask those “experts” that grade coins...what they think when they see “properly stored and developed coin and looks like that will stay like that for next 500 years...or when they see coin just pulled out of set and sent to be graded...:):)

    It's just what I think when someone says "smooth and thin preservation". Either that or mylar.

  • rickoricko Posts: 98,724 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @ZNC ... Please clarify what you mean by 'smooth and thin preservation'... If you are talking about the tarnish, it is not a preservative and will continue if the environmental conditions are present. Tarnish is environmental damage to the surface of the coin. Some colorful types are desired by collectors. Cheers, RickO
