Ten years ago (pretty close to it) I sold my Toned ASE almost completed proof and Unc collection. I have regretted selling the 1990 as it has a very important meaning to me. Well, I contacted the gentleman that I sold it to and.......its still intact btw.
Explained to him at length and the gentleman that he is agreed to a trade. So my 1990 has arrived home and joins her 1997
sister which I bought 5 or so years ago. Here they are side by side with rainbows opposite of each other B)
I'm sending in the 1997 for a trueview so should have a nice image in the next several weeks.
The light is a little brighter on the right so the color does not show as well, but its very nice.

Trueview of the 1990

    More impressive than the pretty Ase's is you remembered who and how to contact someone you sold a coin to 10 years ago...!
    Im guessing it's most likely a member here.

    Thanks. Actually I almost never sell and when I do I know where almost all have gone to. It might be different when I put a large amount into auction soon.....lol
    It’s not a forum member however a very good friend and forum member recommended him years back.
    I keep all my emails from all my accounts and searched toned eagle.

    Nice story and a gorgeous pair of SAE's

    Glad you got it back. What did you have to give up to get it back? Something just as pretty?

    Thanks for the story that goes with your pictures.
    It is nice to see that your girls have been reunited.
    Is there another waiting to be adopted? B)

    Kennedys are my quest...
