So it's time to post images of anything cool you got this week, anything cool from your collection, or anything you saw that got your precious metals juices flowing.

Just a single small purchase for me this week.

A local shop got a typical collection on Monday: Dateless buffalo nickels, colored silver eagles, bicentennial quarters. And this.
"Hey, you like old silver. You want this?"

1673 Charles II Crown

    Very nice.... I would have jumped on that 1673 Charles II Crown. I currently have a fascination with very old English coins. Cheers, RickO

    Nice
    1673 Crown
    Extra dot in the 0 on carol.
    Wear on the II or lite strike.

    Looks like a small counter stamp as well...
    Someone authenticated it well before PCGS ;)

    How much more did that cost over the other dollars?

    I picked up a bit more plastic...$45

    Unfortunately I gave it back later, should have converted to PM's instead of food.
    Well the food was good.

    The other dollars are just for comparison. I figured some people might not be that well versed on 17th century English coinage ;)

    Not an especially rare date. I paid 5 or 6 times what a generic round would have cost ;)

    Ok, then.
    I was all ready to offer double your money @$2 :)
    I haven't paid much attention to pricing as I don't see them here locally.
    I think I have one close in age but much more wear plucked off thebay when no one was looking.

    Morning all,

    The peace dollar got me thinking… I actually just got my first 1921 High relief this week. Yes it’s a travesty , but it was cheap and actually is just what I was looking for…. Also it’s neat that the hole stays in the same place for the “true view”

    Also peeking into @hfjacinto box I spy the 1986 fractional which reminded me of the ones I own. I shared with the group earlier this year…
    1st year 1/10th AGE and PCGS 69 Y2K error, courtesy of Rick-O 😎

    Finally here are some modern Silver fantasy high relief medals from Landis Studios

    And some 2022 Daniel Carr Silver and Gold -

    With The last two among my top favorite private bullion manufacturers today.

    Have a great day all,

    Look at that Peace dollar! Lady liberty is staring straight at that hole, and she looks pissed! LMAO
    :D
