Yes it's ex Hansen. Yes, I'm fine with that. I do think the coin speaks for itself. It's rather amazing in hand. :smile:

    Congratulations. That looks like an atypically nice and eye-appealing example.

    That’s a nice 3 legger 👍🏻

    a very nice example
    you can't go wrong with a 3 legged version in a high grade with a bean to suit:)

    Kennedys are my quest...

    There is a lot more luster than I am accustomed to seeing on that issue. Nice coin!

    Most are stained XFs so it is nice to see a lustrous higher mint state example.

    Nice! Not my series, but why not Full Horn?

    Great example, now crack it out and put it in a "MidLifeCrisis" holder where it belongs, your kids will love it.

    I've always liked that one, too. I had a VG when I was a kid, I paid $35 for that one and put it in lay-away, back around 1962.

    Here's the one I have now, a PCGS MS62. I cherried it as an AU for $300 back in 2000.

    I dream about a 61 ddr half since my childhood. I haven’t got it yet. Well done on yours, it is about as nice as those come and must be super satisfying

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

  • rickoricko Posts: 98,724 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That is a real beauty... great luster for a Buff.... Cheers, RickO

    Though I was 99% sure I would be looking at a colonial coin when opening this thread, it is nice to see this beautiful Buffalo.
