Legend / TDN's new SP65 Chain AMERI. - Well, I guess I should just give up!

Spectacular coin that looks exactly like the way it should! I haven't felt this bad since Tom Cruise married the young Nicole Kidman! I mean, sure she was WAAAAAY out of my league, but I still resented him thoroughly for taking her off the market. Well congrats anyway!!! You Suck! image

    Wow, what a coin! I can only dream.

    What's that going through OF on the reverse? A small planchet defect?

    Very cool... would be cool to see another pic of the coin though, something that would really show the coin's luster as the Trueview just doesn't do that. Must be impressive in hand image

    Also, the cert verification of the coin says it's an MS65BN... not sure why the OP put it as an SP65??? Not that it matters too much anyways, that thing is da bomb!

    "The Coin" that is in the Stellar Collection in Georgia is the S-4 variety. This is the S-1 variety ... and [borrowing Contursi's logic] may very well be the first coin struck at the US Mint.

    To those of you who were concerned with OF on the reverse: YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING!

    I'm glad to hear that it's an as-made planchet defect...but even if it was a staple scratch or a knife carving, it would not detract one bit from the beauty of this awesome coin!

    Congrats TDN!

    BTW, from the press release I'm guessing, since you did this deal through the company, that George picked up a nice piece of change.

    One part of the story I'm not clear about.

    You knew the coins existed and where they were ... or you only knew the coins existed?

    Was it a case of ... of all the gin joints in all the world ... ??

    That would be cool!

    An amazing coin, congratulations! Amazing surfaces for a coin that old. Quite a coincidence finding a neighbor with the coin.

    Too bad the portrait on the obverse is almost as ugly as the Eunice Kennedy Shriver commem. I guess most people can get past that for such a numismatic rarity,

    Thank you for sharing!

    What a great treasure -- hope to see it when it's displayed. Any information on the full provenance? I am guessing there's some distinguished owners along the line.
    Well, I now see there's a whole other thread on this coin and others. It's great that you're sharing these images of the coins here on the forum.
