Cracks and Die Breaks and Color ... grade posted
Last Saturday morning I was flipping through my regular sites, just to see if anything was new. I stumbled across a Die Marriage I have had on my "yes, please" radar for some time, and when I pulled up the images on the TrueView, and after comparing them to the seller's description (always good) and his images (which are, ahhh ... "difficult" I guess you could say), I picked up the phone and called.
After agreeing to purchase her and letting the seller get back to his shopping (he was at the liquor store!), and before I even sent the check, I shared the coin with some friends, who then gave me some very interesting backstory. Apparently at one time some years ago, this coin was picked off from eBay by one of those friends, and was imaged by another of them. My understanding is that someone else here might recognize her too, as they were the consigner, but I don't know who that is.
Anyway, small world!
And the today, while I was out pulling weeds to keep the front from getting out of control, the mail showed up. What a nice break from the cold drizzle!
Because it's always fun to see what you all think, I removed the cert' # if you want to GTG. All comments welcome. I have the LanceViews from some years ago, and I will share those later.
