    '96 Lincoln w/ feeder finger gouges?

    Are they 8 by 10 color glossy pictures?
  3. I saw these posted ATS also, and it looks like you have gotten plenty of buy offers. You shouldn't have any problem selling them, if you choose to do so. They are great looking coins.

    I agree completely.

  7. I kind of wonder if the pictured piece might be a contemporary counterfeit. Obviously it has very heavy wear, which inflicts upon it a great deal of crudity, but some of that crudity looks like it might have been there to begin with.

    Seriously, not sure what anyone else here would do, but let's imagine I found one out in a field, somewhere not private property or otherwise where it belongs to another person. Let's suppose it looked real. First thing I'd do is take it to a bank safe deposit box. Then I'd take a real good look at a lot of pictures of real ones, print some out. I'd go to the bank vault and start comparing; I'd also bring a magnet and try that, just to touch that base. If after all that I still thought there were a remote chance it was genuine, I'd have a couple of trusted minds from my coin club look it over. At the vault. If it still passed the muster, I'd figure out the best way to get it to a grading service. It is possible that its value would make it very expensive to grade, so I'm sure I couldn't afford to keep it. If after all that it was the real deal, I'd put it on the auction block, replenish my savings from the grading costs, pay the Federal taxes, and retire.
  9. I've had quite a few rolls over the years that have toned like this. Most have already been in plastic tubes (like this one and the 41-D), but several have been in OBW paper and came out of the roll like this. I can only think that it must take just the right storage conditions for many years to produce such a deep, uniform toning.
  10. I don't think that this is necessarily bad for coins, just bad for grading company's.
  11. Were these coins stored in roll form ? I can't imagine how they toned so uniformly. They're lovely and your photography is great !

    I remember this coin from an earlier thread, thanks. Still way way way too much money but what the heck it is a Peace Dollar ! Some may think this is a tangible investment I think it would be interesting to hear Ms. Sperber comment as to why this Peace Dollar and the 37-D Buffalo Nickel are 'not marketable' in NGC holders.

    '96 Lincoln w/ feeder finger gouges?

    Feed fingers push the struck coin off the die, bring in the next planchet, and drop it into the coining chamber. If the upper die is set too low, or the anvil die does not retract properly the fingers can scrape across the surface of the die face.
  17. There have been claims like that off and on for years. Usually there is no good evidence, I can recall at least one case where it was true. Not because they were trying to keep the guys coin, but because a shipment got sent to the wrong person. The error was quickly corrected and the coins returned to the proper owners. Frankly I am always skeptical of such claims because I can't see a multi million dollar business whose reputation is based on faith to risk that to steal a coin worth a few hundred or even thousands.

    Silver three cent dating question

    Another way to tell is that the date on the 1869 is noticeable larger, and the digits are tall and thin compared to the 1859 on which the are shorter and wide.

    '96 Lincoln w/ feeder finger gouges?

    You took my comment too literally. My point was only that it is impossible to tell what caused most die gouges; and therefore, they are collected on the basis of their mere presence, and not typically designated or collected by their cause.
