    No new Roosies for me, but I bought a toy.

    Just spent time with Nick (and other Roosie buddies) at FUN. Did he go somewhere today?

    Lablover, yep that's me...not much to look at. How big can my nose get? Must have been a wide angle lens.

    Let’s go with the wide angle lens on that photo. Lablover you are another long time Roosie collector and have put together some great sets. I was a long time collector of Roosie but gave up because I just could not keep up with Nick. I sold off most of my Roosie sets to peruse bust dimes, but still remember my Roosie friends. Thanks for the photos. Mistercoinman

    The first 1955-S Roosevelt Dime in MS67+FB has been graded at PCGS. This is a pop 1/0 coin. I believe this opens up the door for a second to be made.

    If anybody knows where this coin is, please forward me a message.

    Based on the pic that is one of the nicest 55S FB dimes I’ve seen. I’m a buyer PM me

    Is it me, or does this '55-S seam a bit worn in the hair lines and at the bottom of the torch above the bottom bands?

    A bit weak in the strike on the torch but that's better than a weakly struck rim. The hair looks fine, I think what you see is lighting. I like the coin. But seeing it in hand may prove different

    Frankly I was surprised when @onlyroosies told me that this was one of the best 55-S Roosevelt's he's ever seen. Although I suppose that strike-wise it is the best I've ever seen. Though, I will choose @rainbowroosie example any day of the week.

    The thing I love about this 67+FB is all the die polishing. I can only imagine how proof-like this coin appears in hand (heart-eyes emoji).

    I can't believe I spelled seem wrong! :#

    I said it was the nicest FB 55S I have seen. Rainbowroosie doesn't have an FB example.

    The 1955-S is one of the dates I really like since they come so nicely toned. Not FB, but pretty cool to me...here's my small hoard:

    Beautiful coins, Jim! Love the green Rev on the first one - such a rare toning in large amounts.

    Here is a photo of it when it was raw. The days when I didn’t know how to grade, the good ol’ days

    Love the coin Billy, but something about it does not look natural. Perhaps in-hand he's much different. Or, maybe it's just the image. Either way, he's graded and PCGS thinks it's all good!!!!

    Your right the photo is dull. Looks far more lustrous and vibrant in real life.

    A 1969D MS68FB just showed up in the pop report. Wow! I'd like to see that coin. If anyone knows who made it I'm a buyer

    Obviously with the edition of the '75-D in 8FB, '74-7FB, and several others, there is some serious roll and mint set searching going on by either 1 individual or several guys. Anyone have a clue as to whom these slabbers could be?


    Later, Paul.
  • Paul - Great point. I wish I knew who they were - hiring them might save me some money!!!

  • ilikemonstersilikemonsters Posts: 718 ✭✭✭✭

    This 1951-S Rattler Roosevelt is a NewP. It is a dupe, i already have one in the same grade, but I will always welcome dupes. I have 13 total so far, with two dupes.
