Starting the New Year Off With a Bang!
I decided that I really wanted one, enough to blow my coin budget for the next six months to get one. But I am quite pleased with my deal with myself; this is a keeper!
It's the most I've ever spent on a coin, by a fair bit; not coincidentally, it's the most valuable coin I now own. It completes my Morgan date/MM set (not to say "finishes" it, since upgrades are always likely; and, note, I don't consider the 1895 proof to be part of a date/MM set ).
And, yes, the photos accurately depict the coin.
Without further ado
