Not one of your best, but rather one of your favorite coins (Picture thread)

Not one of your best, but rather one of your favorite coins.

This silver eagle must have been someone's pocket piece. I like the overall look and wear.
(Purchased off of eBay a few years ago.)

This lowkey cent is the perfect blend of yellow bronze toning.
(Purchased from a board member here.)

What is some or one of your favorite coins, even though they may not be your "best"?

    It's a very rare Lincoln cent. So rare, Whitman didn't make a slot for it in their albums! 😂 🤣

    I have been privileged to have seen one or two of those rarities. According to my research and sources, less than 500 total escaped the mint . . . . .
