    Graffiti on 1835 is actually very faint in hand although the camera accentuates it.

    One coin per thread would be helpful.

    My grandfather had a store in the 50's, 60's and 70's and an old brass cash register. I remember coins looking like the 1837 and figured it was because the wooden drawers were rounded on the ends. Don't know this to be true, but when I first started collecting coins from change I remember quite a few that looked like that.

    @jesbroken look how much obv detail compared to the rev on the 1837. Doesn't look right to me.
