Couldn’t resist at NZ$80 (~US$54). Just landed in the letterbox and looks even better in hand. Will get an acetone soak after I retrieve it from my Christmas stocking. Nothing special but I like it.

Smitten with DBLCs.

    Close to AU details on that one, well done!
    Be careful, early walkers can be almost as addictive as early copper!

    Nice looking Walker - lots of detail on it!

    Nice pickup.
    It's especially nice when these early Walkers haven't been cleaned twenty times....or, perhaps rarer still, uncleaned and free of rim nicks/ticks/bumps.

    Nice looking WLH.... a personal favorite of mine.... An acetone soak should do it good.... Be sure to show us pictures after you have finished. Cheers, RickO

    Great looking and well struck for the date. It's got to be around AU-50 or so.

    Really nice looking coin, and a special end of WWI date for the Anzacs!

    I like it and would leave it alone.

  • Dave99BDave99B Posts: 8,240 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Leave it alone indeed. Nice old Walker.


    Always looking for original, better date VF20-VF35 Barber quarters and halves, and a quality beer.

    I don't see any downside to an acetone soak in this case. I'm sincerely keen to hear contrary opinions. Cheers.

    I would roll an acetone soaked Q-tip over both sides. That will remove any oils and pcv. Dipping will just loosen it.
