Finally made a new purchase.

It has been just short of a year since my last visit to a coin shop and my last purchase.

Today I stopped at a combo jewelry and coin shop to snoop.

Picked up a Capital Holder containing the 5 Philly Mint coins dated 1940. All MS. The cent and the half are luster bombs.

The cent is blazing red.

The half has subtle attractive light toning.

The nickel is very well struck and is close to having full steps.

The dime and quarter have luster but look off to me.

Your thoughts.
