1 of 500 Black label PCGS 70 arrived today. Yeah, it's an exciting coin and worth the wait, wish I had bought more at this price. Anyone think these will develop spots? 1/160, f6.3, iso 100, center weighted metering, if anyone is curious.

    I appreciate that the design is sharper than the 2016 Merc centennial coin.

    Is the eagle attempting to snip or tear a piece of the olive branch?

    Human head on one side,
    whole bird on the other.

    Lemme ask ya, that hat.. is that wing from a real bird, like bones and meat and all? Or is it decoration made from feathers over some wood and wire frame or something?

    Surely dose wings ain't growing out of dat chick's head bone are dey??

    Anyway, nice coin great pics.
    Hope it doesn't spot on you.

    Birds'll do that sometimes.

    I did go a bit crazy on this one I picked up 15 of them all raw at $100 to $200 over spot. I sent them all in for grading 5 to NGC and 10 to PCGS, Now just coming back so far 3-69 and 2-70's all PCGS are coming back now some more in two weeks or so. Love this coin very nice pic.



    Hoard the keys.

    Anyone think these will develop spots? I doubt it, just like platinum they dont seem to spot.

    That reverse is just fantastic.... quickly becoming my favorite....I am not interested in Palladium though. I do wish they would replace the Eagle reverse on the ASE with this one though.... that would be awesome... Cheers, RickO

    To be fair, the palladium eagle does have to its advantage its hi-relief composition. I'll bet its a toss up if the ASE /WLH reverse eagle design was done in HR.

    It most certainly is my image, learned how to shoot coins from these forums. Nothing special, a used D3100 from a pawn shop and a used 105mm Nikon Micro Nikkor lens from Ebay. Technically it could be better, a bit to bright around the edges.
