It's all about timing
Yesterday morning, I had to go downtown to retrieve the very last Liberty Seated quarter needed to complete my set of business strikes in PCGS/NGC holders from the main post office. I was unable to intercept it from the USPS because they showed up while I was at work doing one of my critical job functions. Oh well, what could possibly go wrong? I had to park about 3 blocks away in the sketchy downtown area, and I hustled back to the car with my new 1882 25c PCGS MS67, green label (1993-1998). I've been looking for an example that matches the rest of my late-date P-mints since about 2017, so this one was the result of a long search.
At 5:30 PM, I got a "public safety" email from my employer about "shots fired" at the exact intersection where my car was parked at 8:30 AM.
It's all about timing. I was on this coin within 5 minutes of it being listed for sale, and I still had to walk briskly through some questionable city streets to get it into my car without incident. If I had gone to the post office in the late afternoon instead, I might have had to dodge bullets to get it too.
