    @Pnies20. That is a great coin with a great provenance. I hope you don't mind a story from my youth.

    Great story thank you!

    I really like that one! I still need a 22-102, that one didn’t for in the coin budget at the moment haha.

    @KensCoins2287 Oh man I missed that one! I love that marriage. You have had a couple cherrypicks with the 123 die marriage at this point!

    I purchased this 1818 O-115 R-5 early die state. Just the start of the obverse crack by the date. Rubber band mark is a bummer but I can personally look past it once it is cracked and enjoyed raw.

    @PillarDollarCollector I agree, there looks to be some PVC on the reverse. Should come off with ease. None of the black crust will come off with acetone though.

    Thanks. It arrived today, and it does indeed look great.

    As I’m sure you know, many collectors avoid coins with this type of eye appeal, as it’s very light with little toning, and highly lustrous. Sure, it’s very likely that at some point it’s been dipped, but apparently it was done gently enough to still merit a CAC sticker! Some collectors limit themselves to only having toned coins, since that demonstrates they are “original”. And that's OK.

    Not shabby. Rubber band mark is significant but a crusty circulated coin regardless. Looks good raw, and it was a good price. :)
