    That looks very cool and I have actually never seen this design before. Thank you for showing it to us.

    Nice coin from 'Don Benito Juarez'

    This is a nice strike. Usually the features of the bust are not as clear. Great coin.

    I seem to remember Dave Akers remarking in his intoductory comments at the Pittman sale about collecting Mexican 8 Reales by date. Something like "if you want to really drive yourself crazy", or "you would have to be crazy". Was anyone here at that sale? Do you remember that?

    Well the example posted above is absolutely lovely.
    I imagine that you have an idea going into the submission X percent solid cross, X percent maybe and similarly one or two unlikely but hopeful. If so, out of the ten what were you thinking, are far as a number, 5? 6? 7?, were solid to cross.

    Given that you have crossed numerous coins over the years, do you have the sense things are tighter currently? Or is it a matter of just unfortunate luck on this particular submission.

    i was hoping for 4-5 to absolutely cross. One that did not cross was a NGC 65 + that I asked to be crossed at a 65.

    A blazer it was a mid earlier date. But nooooo......

    I think they are tighter so much so it may be the last time I do this !!

    I don't know that I would have been confident on the 63, maybe I'd think otherwise if seen in hand.
    I'd love to see that NGC65+ if you get the chance. It should tell the story.
