Forgotten, now found (aka “the pocket piece I didn’t know was there”)

lordmarcovanlordmarcovan Posts: 43,212 ✭✭✭✭✭

This was in my old billfold, in a flip that was wrapped up in some postal receipts. I still carry that billfold in my back pocket for receipts and business cards, but use my phone case wallet nowadays for credit cards and driver’s license, etc.

I was surprised to rediscover this. Particularly since I’ve been carrying it around unknowingly. It had to have been in there the better part of a year.

Note the nifty little cud at the top of the obverse.

It’s always fun to find forgotten treasure and thereby cherrypick one’s self. LOL

    So is it going back into the pocket?

    Nah. Eventually I reckon it’ll go into someone else’s pocket. Back last year I bought it with the intention of flipping it.

    But I do now realize I don’t have a Coronet cent in my type set. Hmm. Thing is, mine is an all-slabbed set. I wonder if this one’s worth the expense of a trip to PCGS? Maybe. Maybe not. It wouldn’t grade out super high, of course, but it’s a nice enough circulated example, I reckon. And the cud is cool.

    Eh, maybe I’ll include it in my next submission. Otherwise, it’ll end up on BST later.

    How do y’all reckon it would grade out? I don’t see any surface issues that would prevent it getting a straight grade. Might go XF40-ish, ya think? With PCGS, I mean. Not EAC. LOL.

    A tad too much wear on the cheek and hair. A strong VF35?

    I would guess 40. Looks like an old cleaning.

    That's a fun find for sure! I've heard stories of people losing coins, but I've never heard of a coin lost in a pocket for the better part of a year! Perhaps it is more of a forgotten coin than a lost coin.

    I could see that happening, and could live with it. I think I'm in it for a little below Numismedia VF price. Looking at the XF40 Numismedia price, I think it could be (just) worth my while to submit it to our host TPG, and if VF30-35 is the worst case scenario, I'm fine with that.

    Edit, after closer examination of my own pix: yeah, I think you're right. Cheek and hair over her forehead. Just a tad too much wear for a 40, I guess.

    "Market acceptable" enough for a straight grade, I would hope. Of course my quickie phone photos leave a little bit to be desired, and the lighting gave it a slightly greener tint in these images, I think. Under normal lighting (incandescent or sunlight), it's a bit browner looking, if that matters.

    Ahhhh! Thems was the days of carrying a nice leather wallet that molded to your butt pocket. That cud is nice. The E's in USA have an interesting strike characteristic separation.

    Exactly. I forget it's there. Since I almost never use or even carry cash anymore, and do everything with my debit card (which is carried in my phone case), the ol' leather wallet seldom comes out of my back pocket, except when I change my britches.

    It looks like a 35, and the cud gives it an interesting point. I think it would straight grade. Let us know if you do submit it. Cheers, RickO
