    I've always thought the Barber Quarter and Half would make the perfect clad quarter and half dollar.

    True! It would be amazing if they brought them back! Nobody would even recognize the design these days.

    Heck, most of the new generations don't know what a '63 half dollar looks like! :D

    I like the 42 nickel. It has character.

    Good eye! That 42 nickel DOES have character! The toning under light is pretty spectacular....hard to capture on film.

    Even as presented it shows it's "character".

    The 1942-P is one of the finest 1942-P Proof nickels I've ever seen. They are hard to find like that. I saw it and knew it had to be part of the Eldo collection - and Eldo agreed!

    Thank you Buddy! Great pics, and the 42 is a winner! It has a solid place in the collection.
