    Great looking coins! That 1880 Shield Nickel is something special, for sure!! <3

    I agree...that is the first Shield Nickel gold CAC Proof I have seen that is for sure undegraded. Whatever you paid for it..I am sure big $$$$$...you got a great deal! Congratulations on a wonder coin!

    Gazing at your NGC-type coins again, I can't help but wish the services would go back to a cleaner, a less cluttered time when inserts and slabs were not only protective of their occupants but equally as attractive.

    With no disrespect to the Shield nickel, I think the other two coins look just as nice as it does (if not nicer) considering the assigned grades. That’s a great trio!

    @DelawareDoons ... Beautiful proof coins.. and that gold bean appears (to me) to be justified. I know judging proofs from pictures is not recommended, but with the gold bean, it affirms the coins beauty and confirms (to me, anyway) a lack of hairlines (the bane of proof coins). Cheers, RickO

    Thanks for the kind words!

    There's a reason my aspirations stop at NGC 4. The no-barcode look is just so much nicer, so much cleaner imho. No weird graphics, logos, or other silliness. Just the basics.

    Very nice choices. I've included a toned Morgan in my type set as well, along with other examples of Morgans. I take a rather broad view of type - any excuse to buy coins.

    Half the coins in my collection would upgrade on crackout. I specifically collect the old holders so I'll never crack them lol.

    I'd rather fill holes than buy upgrades but beggars can't be choosers. Thanks!

    Technically this Morgan will slot into my OGH box of 20. Which is half Morgan toners right now lol.

    My type example is a 67PL.
