The competition was fierce for the Rollo Fox Halves, but I did manage to score one nice common date 1943....I do like this coin, even though in high grade they are common: Let me know what you guys think.

    A very nice coin congrats. I did follow a few of the Rollo Fox coins, most seemed to go for strong money.

    Love the gold toning. Looks 67.

    They are common but never seen outside of the collecting world. Wonderful example of a beautiful coin. I wish it were mine!

    Nice, lusterous coins from this date are common. It seems they were abundantly saved in original rolls which leads to many, many coins with the look of this one, light gold with rim tone that's a bit darker. There are also more coins than can be mentioned which have been dipped bright white, just like ricko likes them.

    What was the hammer price it sold for?

    I thought Rollo had some truly lovely walkers, but his collection suggested that he was less of a stickler for strike than your typical Walking Lib collector. It takes all kinds.

    @Eldorado9.... A great coin indeed. The WLH is a personal favorite of mine, even more so since it was common in change in my younger years. Cheers, RickO

    I grew up in the early Kennedy half years, so I was lucky to get a Franklin in change, but even those were rare in commerce then. The Walkers, and Mercury dimes, when I saw them were these magical coins from a bygone time. As for the Standing Lib Quarters.....I don't believe I ever even saw one until I walked into a coin store, and pressed the button on the rotating carousel. Great coins, great memories.

    @Eldorado9.... Even SLQ's were not uncommon when I was a kid.... sure, not like Mercs or WLH's, but saw them frequently in change. Cheers, RickO
