Post a Coin That Someone Showed You That Was Simply Incredible

First things first - YOU CANNOT POST A COIN YOU OWN!

Please post a coin that someone showed you that they own or owned where you were just blown away by it. Perhaps it was simply fantastic for the grade, has wonderful color, is contrasted, etc. Have fun with it!

I'll start - this 1939 D half @Eldorado9 owns is my absolute favorite Walker of his. The fields are so clean, the luster is perfect, and it's just amazing in so many ways. I had seen quite a few of his Walkers, which are all really really good, but when I saw this one I knew it was the best of the lot, and I set it down and said "Oh wow, that's incredible."

    I don’t have a picture, but there was a recent auction at Heritage with a chain cent in AU 58 that I can’t stop thinking about.

    Any coin @winesteven has!

    Thank you my friend @hfjacinto , you are so VERY kind.

    My favorites, hands down, are the large Proof Gold coins owned by @Floridafacelifter . Several of his coins were even chosen by PCGS for full page shots each on their free calendar sent yearly to Collectors Club members. (I don’t recall getting that this year - why is that????). The first time I saw his coins, it ruined my keyboard, from all of my drool falling out of my mouth!

    Here are two of those coins Steve speaks of:



    Actually, lol, it was his older coins, such as his Liberty Gold coins, that I grade MS71, that I had in mind.

    @winesteven - Ah, yes, those are wonderful as well.

    We’ll call the two I posted as extra coins I found incredible, lol.

    This Buff that Joe Best(CHD) let me view a few years ago has always held my memory. Beautiful Buff, Joe. Hope you still have it.
