Just going through some of the coins that were overlooked or pushed aside.
The Denver Mint...................................? Who had this bright idea ? I get it, as it gave me a laugh.
Hold the Fort a second. Lets read the room and ask this forum. Cool or uncool ?
All I need now is a mouth piece and a face mask for a set, so I don't see STARS.
Here's one example of a star placed inside a D and we now have coins screaming. I'm baacck..... :) Sports Illustrated.

    They all do resemble stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ but obviously are pareidolia.

    Emerald, you can drive yourself insane(r) looking at such pareidolia, or you can stop yourself and ask how such extraneous details could possibly be there on the coin. When you realize that they couldn't be, then you will be able to confidently ignore the hallucinations.

    Emerald is a parody of us. I don’t worry about him.

    That's not a star. Clearly, it's a small lobster with its claws extended.
    Or maybe a dog's head, facing left with its ears extended behind it. Regardless, it's not a star. ;)

    You know, I think your right. It was upside down. Sorry! 🤣

    How about specially created coin boards/folders for, say, the top 50 EmeraldATV varieties?
    Let's get on it people, these discoveries need to be archived...

    The top photo (without the inset) is an Art Decogothic chef-d’œuvre that Dali would steal.
    Look at the composition of the collage. Where’s the coin?
    Squint your eyes like you do at the museum. Artists like to play with their audience, whether they’ve good or bad at it. There’s room for attempts at art here, isn’t there?

    I once knew of a coach who on the first day of practice, laid 42 full uniforms, at one end of the field.
    On the other end, he lined up the every player trying out for the team, which were about 75 players.
    The first 42 players to bring back a FULL uniform made the team. All the others were cut.
    WoW, those were the days.
