    They all look terrific! Good luck with the graders. I especially like the 1892- but they are all nice- you have a great eye.

  • Tom147Tom147 Posts: 1,306 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I like them. Won't guess the grade because you didn't ask. Please advise when they're returned. Good Luck !!!

    And, to bad the Winged Liberty didn't have a small little D on the reverse. Wouldn't that be nice.

    I agree with tdn. Nice coins. Best of luck. My shipment to them of 10 days ago hasn't arrived yet. Says arriving late. duh! Also, just paid my p.o. fee and it is up and ridiculous. Then that's my opinion.

    Thanks Much for the comments.

    It appears that the coin I really like people are all over the place with its grade. The 17P is, imo, the best coin of the bunch. No hairlines, that I saw, 1 small mark on the obverse and great luster and strike. I like the 92 also but 63 is tops for it I believe. The 16 Barber is a twiner imo. uncirculated would be nice but 58 probably is correct. The 16P Merc could 65FB but I always seem to be wrong with 16P Mercs.

    Thats my opinions on the 4 coins shown. Will see if it works out in 30 or so days.

    One I sent in just because.


    If the 1917 has great luster, your images of it are far from representative. The surfaces look rather dull overall, even dead in spots. And some of the toned areas are opaque, if not nearly terminal looking.

  • FairlanemanFairlaneman Posts: 10,393 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Mark my images hardly ever show the correct luster. The tone is not terminal for sure. I actually gave the coin a short dip just to make sure it was not terminal. Wish I could do better.


  • DRUNNERDRUNNER Posts: 3,776 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Very nice coins . . . . . . any grades are fine . . . . they still remain very nice coins.


  • mr1931Smr1931S Posts: 5,757 ✭✭✭✭✭

    '92- Select Unc. (MS62)
    '16 Barber-AU 55
    '16 Merc- CH. Unc (MS64)
    '17 merc-AU 55

    PCGS is tough on Philly Barber dimes. The '16 Barber could go 58 if underlying luster is there. The '17 Merc has slight wear to my eyes.

    How high are your expectations?

    Many happy BST transactions

    They look like above average though I don't see any "homeruns" there. Should be educational.
