Here Are some quick iPhone shots under my halogen grading lamp.

I really like the old mint set toning.

@SkyMan I promised you I’d post a Franklin someday. I know this year is special to you. ;)

    If you like and enjoy your purchase, then you are focused on coin collecting. From what I see you are just broadening you horizon.

    Enjoy, Donato

    That coin has wonderful, original US Mint Set frost all over it. I like it very much.

    Gentle mint set toning, just how I like to find them. Peachy! Thanks for sharing.

    As a type guy, I always like seeing someone extend to "other" designs! :smiley: Much more fun that way, in my feeble little mind....

    Nice 'un, too.
