Impulse buy begets even more impulsive buy... 1911 Great Britain Specimen Set... UPDATED with TVs
Earlier this year I bought a 1911 Great Britain PCGS Proof 67 Half Crown and a Shilling. Both really pretty. This got me looking at some 1911 proof sets. I won this one at auction and it just showed up in the mail! It's in what I assume is the original box of issue. The obverses are toned a little too deeply, but the reverses are really colorful. The set seems totally originally to me. I wish I could safely store the coins in their case for display.
Would love some feedback or if anyone has any other 1911 Proofs, please share. I think I am going to go looking for 1902 pieces next.
PS - first time using Instragram for video. Easy to do and better to get a sense of these surfaces and color.
Hmmm.... video not working anymore?
