    The 2x2 also says it’s a Fine. My wife, bought this for me back around 1987.

    F15 looks like a good assessment from the pictures. You have had it for 35 years? Was it lost in the bottom of your coin box? ;) Cheers, RickO

    F12 if selling. F15 if buying.

    She has only bought me two other coins besides this one.

    My records show that sometime back in the 1980s, she bought me a 1913-D Type 1 Buffalo Nickel in F condition for $3. I probably got it stashed away in a tube somewhere.

    My records also show that in 1993, she bought me a 1912-S Barber Half Dollar for $8. I would say in about F condition. She brought it home as a souvenir for me after visiting her sister in California. I still have it in the original 2 X 2 that she brought it home in.

    I just gave her a general idea of what types of coins that I liked. For somebody who has very little interest in coins, I think she did a really good job picking out these coins. :)

    Fine, anyone know how to decipher price codes on the back of 2x2s?

    Fine -15.

    Retired dealer and avid collector of U.S. type coins, 19th century presidential campaign medalets and selected medals. In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?
