My first Feuchtwanger . . . . .

ZoidMeisterZoidMeister Posts: 3,021 ✭✭✭✭✭

I've been wanting one of these most of my collecting life. I've searched for an example with the right "eye appeal" that also fit my budgetary expectations.

Well struck, problem free, lightly circulated examples are difficult to find and command a healthy price when found.

Beat up, sub-VF "details" coins are usually what fit into Zoid's budgetary expectations.

Being a "lowly" HT-268 / Var. 6-I helps keep it in budget. While this example will probably never "straight grade", that really isn't a concern for me as I have yet to send any coins for entombing. I care little what it says on the plastic, rather I let my eyes and wallet dictate.

Anyway, the few little hits and light scratches on the reverse aren't that distracting to me. The strong strike and overall light wear of this piece overwhelm any distractions it might have.

For one, I would be interested in seeing other recently purchased examples that were in the sub $150 range. I was fortunate (I think) to have gotten this example significantly below the top of this range.

    I've always liked them too and have never gotten an answer to my question of why these aren't listed along with other privately made patterns.

    I asked several women during a coin show if they would like to see my Feuchtwanger and got my face slapped. Yours is very nice. Mine was actually given to me by a very good friend and it is one of my favorite coins in my collection.

    I hate to admit, I actually thought of that after re-reading my title . . . . .

    Congrats! You're right... these do get rather spendy in problem-free XF-AU plastic... Cheers! Leo
