More coins for my PCGS set...working off eye appeal and not slab number.

I liked this one because it was frosty, sharp and clean. I paid quite a premium for it. I think the dealer knew he had me. Happens sometimes.

I bought this one because I thought it was crisp and lustrous. Just a little bit of noise in the right field. Love the OGH.

Starting my fifth box of 20 for walkers now even though there are only 65 in the full set.

    Both nice additions.

    5th box of 20, wow! That is quite a stack!

    MS66 taste on an MS63 budget.

    @Walkerfan.... Wow... both are really nice... however, that '42D is really special..in quality, appearance... and for me... a great year. ;) Cheers, RickO

    @ricko thanks, my friend.

    You have mentioned that before (about 1942).

    What makes that year special for you? If you don't mind me asking.

    I like the 47....they can come really deeply frosty sometimes, as I'm sure you know.
    I happen to prefer thick frosty luster to flashy luster.
    I realize I am probably in the minority but I don't care. :)

    Both look great, nice luster, Ken.

    Thanks, guys. Yes, I believe that the luster on the 1942-D will be frosty, as well. It just looks different from different photography methods. Also, the 1942-D is VERY difficult to find nice and is the rarest Denver short set coin.
