I bought this coin two years ago

but for a variety of reasons, I only received it about a month ago. Verdict: rather worth the wait. Not anything super exciting but a blast white Swiss gem at a reasonable price as far as I can remember. ;)

    Great looking coins... two years though!!! Yeah, I agree that it was probably worth the wait, but that is some slow shipping

    And this was my b-day present to myself. Even though it's been Trueviewed, I thought that this image is perhaps better, if only in that it does not capture the really nice gold umessed with, color. Here are both images of the same coin. First picture nails the detail, second nails the color. None does well with its luster.

    And this concludes my 3 year lack of posting. Unless you want me to show you my Cuban banknotes. :D

    A very nice looking group of coins ... and, yes, I'd like to see the Cuban banknotes!

    I'd like to hear the story how the 1850 Swiss 1/2 Franc got to you after two years. Very nice assortment of coins by the way.

    well worth the wait... I would have given up.
    I see streakes in the 1/2 frank coin.
    are these caused by die polishing? I hope it was not caused by some type of cleaning

    Today is the first day of the rest of my life

    I want to hear the story in two years, just so we can all experience the same suspense and excitement.

    Yeah, maybe reel it out a paragraph at a time every two months or so. ;)

    Fellas, leave the tight pants to the ladies. If I can count the coins in your pockets you better use them to call a tailor. Stay thirsty my friends......
