Two NEWPs love the surfaces

Hi Folks,
I have 2 new bust quarter newps this month. One is a die marriage I already have, the 1834 B4, but the surfaces on this one were too good to pass up. The other one, the 06/5 - I have not found one I liked in the grade range I want for DBQ's (20-45) after looking for many a year until now. So now I have a VF20, again with the kind of surfaces that suggest minimal intentional human intervention.

I love the colorful ones as well, but I find these that have not been messed with to be equals in eye appeal.

Best, SH

    Yes, agreed. Very nice. The 1806/5 is quite nice for the grade!

    They are both very nice coins... excellent specimens and would make any collector proud to own them. Cheers, RickO

    I love seeing coins like those!!

    1834 is wholesome.
    Not so on the other.....old cleaning?

    That is a rather surprising comment - where is the evidence for an old cleaning? Notice the dirt in the devices and the even patina - this coin was probably not cleaned in the past in any detrimental way. If you are going to say something like that and rain on my parade (and with a smiley face to boot), I would like to hear where you came up with it. Apparently CAC liked it, and my experience with submitting 100s of early silver to them is that they take a negative view (i.e. don't pass) coins with old cleanings that visually affect the coin that would de-wholesome-ize the coin. I can show you many early silver coins in this grade that have evidence of old cleanings - but that is best shown in hand, not from images. This one does not.

    Best, SH

    Well done! Two very nice examples.

    Sorry to rain on any parade. I'm not a grader, nor do I collect this series.....my apologies.

    PS: smiley face is a habit.
