    Happy 292nd Birthday! Born Feb. 11,1732 (Julian) or Feb. 22, 1732 (Gregorian). The Julian calendar was in use in the British American colonies in 1732.

    The "call it" coin no British soldier wants to see... A double serving of George! Heads you lose, tails you lose. "Royal Crown" die chip to boot.

    Does paper count? I have a few Georges laying around since I search them by the hundreds.

    Also, how about some Canadian? For all of these posts, as a CRHer President’s Day drives me crazy because the banks are closed! :D


    Not the right George huh. It is kind of funny that the U.S. were led by George , and the Brits were ruled by George. Some names sure are common. :D

    Cheers, and God Bless, CRHer700 :mrgreen:

    @P0CKETCHANGE - Do you have a complete set of graded business strike silver Washington quarters?

    @OAKSTAR not quite, but I'm 83% of the way there (69/83). I started it a little over 4 years ago. Criteria is "double-sided toners". Most of the coins are MS65-67.

    Nothing is as expensive as free money.

    Thanks for that. I was looking at your beautiful quarters above and wondering what your 32-D and 32-S look like.

    Here are some random Washington quarters in the back of my Dansco. I only wanted a 32-64 Dansco album. I could only find one with extra pages. This album went to 1980-S proof, so I filled it. The rest is just random stuff.

    @OAKSTAR here they are.

    Just picked up the 32-D at Winter FUN. It's a 58+ that has better eye appeal than a lot of the 63s on the market, and was a fraction of the cost. Just a pop 6 at PCGS in the top everyman grade. The 32-S is a 62—nice eye appeal but the surfaces are a little dull for an unc, hence the grade.

    I went with "value grade" coins for these slots—most of the others are in the $50-$150 range, so I preferred not to have any 4-figure coins tying up funds, especially since the eye appeal and toning isn't great on those issues even in choice BU.

    Beautiful coins @P0CKETCHANGE! I think you and I are going in opposite directions. You're keeping slabs and I'm breaking them out. 🤣 😉 👍🏻

    @P0CKETCHANGE - Here's a few minor toners thought you'd like to see. Not nearly as nice as yours!

    Back in the mid 19th century, there was a collectors mania for pieces with Washington on them. Die sinkers stuck a profile him on a token whenever they could, even if it was very small.

    An 1864 Lincoln campaign token.

    Retired dealer and avid collector of U.S. type coins, 19th century presidential campaign medalets and selected medals. In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    As much as people preferred Laura Gardin Fraser's version of the Washington Quarter, I will say that John Flanagan's version is the best designed of the presidential portrait coins.

    Oakstar.

    Unfortunately I do not have the 1932 D or the 1932 S. Possibly down the road I will acquire them.

    If they're anything close to your examples above, they will be stunning! 👍
