    Are you Gary Hultman? If not, please return the coin to the rightful owner. :p

    I have one somewhere, issued to me.

    I have to dig it out, it was a 1920 (?) P wheatie struck on a foreign planchet.

    One of the mods on /r/coins is a hardcore collector of those. He has dozens of them.

    I have one with a nice mercury dime in a capitol plastics holder. I'll try to remember to take a picture when I'm home later.

    By the way, THAT's the way an Unplated Zinc Cent
    coin should look like -

    Not the mirror that re-plating gives it, not the dull dark
    grey color de-plating gives it.

    Notice the luster!

    A great example - much scarcer than most collectors
    think, due to the abundance of re-plated and de-plated
    cents showing up everywhere and confusing folks.

    I have seen a few of those at shows in the PNW when I lived there. I believe I even have one I picked up... hmmmm... will have to look in my coin cabinets where I store my 'interesting' items... Cheers, RickO

    Question, what happens when these turn dark? Does de-plating look similar. I may know how to tell but not sure as I don't know if I've ever seen a de-plated example. :(

    Just wondering: What exactly was the reasoning for putting the submitters name on the cert?
    Was there a process to get them re-registered to new owners?
    Did they not expect the certs to trade hands?

    Just seems like an odd choice....

    Had a '78S Morgan graded 64/64 for many years in my 7070, purchased from Ellesmere Numismatics back in the 80's. Decided to put a 78CC in the album last year, and posted the 78S with the ANACS photo certificate on the BST and got multiple offers within minutes.
    My photos are entombed in Photobucket, otherwise I'd post them in this thread.

    Successful BST transactions with 170 members.
