A 1783 Quint for a Quint: Where Can I find One?
I have been collecting coins since I was 7 years old, mainly with the introduction of the State Quarter program in 1999. My first Red Book came as the 2002 edition where I first read about the Nova Constellatio patterns. I was fortunate enough to see them in person at the 2017 Denver World's Fair.
I am wondering if there is a reproduction plain 1783 500 unit or "Quint" example that I can purchase, preferably, without the word "copy" on it.
I can't afford a unique million dollar example, but a reproduction would make for a nice desk piece.
You see, I was very surprised to see my family's name in a coin book and used for such rare and valuable pieces. Then after reading that the plain obverse Quint may as well be the first US coin ever struck, I have been looking for a nice reproduction. My last name is Quint. I have been collecting coins for about 22 years. Since there is a coin that shares my last name, I feel I should own atleast a more modern, well made example of it.
