I am curious about lot 96, a 1797 half dime I was the internet high bidder on. I guess I'll have to wait and call New Hampshire in the morningimage

    Just out of curiosity, page 6094, almost twenty years ago- 7/31/2002...it's the first post after the reboot of the forum saved out of many, many discussions. I just wanted to see which conversation was in last place, and this was the winner and I'm the first response. Pretty cool, rays is still an active member!

    I wonder if he ever got his half dime. @rays did you get it?

    I remember that half dime, the coin in hand was much darker than the photo in the catalog. Taught me a lesson not to bid on coins sight-unseen.

    Wow... Twenty years later and we finally know you got the coin.... I am really tired...have not slept wondering how it turned out :D;) Will probably be gone for a while... got to catch up on 20 years of sleepless nights.... and yes, some of that was in Seattle.... :D Cheers, RickO
