    Very nice, and always great to get better grades than expected. Cheers, RickO

    Eglit 105/59mm and struck in Bronze, shared a common reverse with E-106 and E-107. It was also struck in White Metal and Gilt Bronze. All medals show a reverse die crack which can be seen under the sun, running from 7 o'clock-2 o'clock. I found it on eBay in a "Tom Hoffman" style holder with an MS64 NGC insert included and I thought it might upgrade with the nicely reflective fields and a touch of pleasant tone on the reverse.

    Eglit 224/27mm and struck in Bronze, it also comes in two other sizes: E-117/70mm and E-223/45mm, there are some differences in the legends and design but the portraits appear identical in most aspects. An unusual obverse portrait of Columbus which shows him facing away and looking to have a scowl on his face. The reverse is an elegant depiction of what seems to be Queen Isabella. All sizes come in a variety of planchet types, Bronze/Silver Plated/Gilt Bronze with the Bronze being the most common. The fields on this example are quite reflective and I thought it would grade MS65-66 with possibly a PL designation.

    1941 WRNC counterstamp. This is the 3rd one of these I've owned, I foolishly sold the others around 2005-2007, one to Pinnacle Rarities and the second to former member @truthteller. My bad, I feel fortunate to have found another. According to the booklet "Celebrating the WRNC's Centennial Anniversary" there were only 100 struck to celebrate the club's 20th year and then the dies were destroyed. The Secret Service confiscated all but 25-30 in the intervening years. When I bought this one about 4-5 years ago it was in a Capital type holder with the tone already present. The coin itself is free of marks and the c'stamp is bold, but with weak luster I had thought it'd be graded around AU55.

    1971 WRNC counterstamp on 1921-S Morgan Dollar. The club had to have fresh dies made for their 50 year anniversary and they were smaller and only struck on one side of the host coin(s). According to the booklet referenced above there were perhaps 20 total Morgan/Peace Dollars c'stamped in 1971 with most of them being 1921-P Morgans and a few "S", "D" and Peace Dollars. I've owned this coin since around 2003 when I purchased it from the same dealer along with a 1941 and 1971 c'stamps on Cleveland commems and a one ounce silver bar from 1971. There are a few scattered ticks and hairlines which had caused me to undergrade this one, too, expecting an AU58.

    Fortunately, this one was saved from the press!!! B)

    This is absolutely gorgeous. I love how the reverse tone actually looks like the sun is giving off light. It has a sunset quality to it that makes it absolutely stunning.
