    Yeah, I don't have a question.

    So I just want you all to know that I've posted maybe 6 coins with questions to several forums/chat rooms or whatever and I always ask a specific question and not just ask for them to tell me about my coin. Out of those 6 I probably got feedback on 2 and they were short and negative. So this is the only place I post to now. I do go to other pages and look at the streams an try to learn new things, but NONE of them even begin to compare to the Kats here at the NGC forums. I know you that are offering up your wisdom are doing it to share your knowledge and further the hobby for the next generation of newbies and you get nothing but satisfaction in return. And in the not Newbie forums y'all carry on conversations like you are all old friends. And I can even put my two cents in on those streams without feeling weird about it-although not often-and I feel welcomed. You guys make learning this stuff comfortable, and for that I say Thank you. Thank you for sharing what you know with me, and for being friendly and top quality humans. Heck, I've even gotten messages from folks, who never commented on a stream of mine, just welcoming me to the club and becoming a new cyber-friend. THAT is simply amazing in these times when so many people are in a hurry and only ever looking out for themselves. You guys set the NGC site above and beyond every other site I've visited. So I'm rambling, big deal, y'all are used to that by now. Am I right? So thank you. Thank you all a whole big ole bunch. Pat yourself and the back and pretend it's me. Ok?

    Here are the 1957 P and D Washingtons for my A toner Dansco. The P I cracked from a PCGS MS66 slab, and the D I pulled from a Mint Set. The D was imaged by Bob Campbell, and I think he did an excellent job.

    I always thought these were kind of cool........at least a little different. I love they are silver and not the normal Jefferson composition.

    I feel for you. I bought a number of whizzed and cleaned coins in the pre-slab era, before my eyes became more educated. Not to say that I couldn't be fooled today, especially on lightly cleaned silver, doctored coins, counterfeits, etc, which is why I only buy certified coins when any real money is involved. I had dealers sell me processed coins as uncs when I was a ten-twelve year old kid.back in the 50's, hard for me to believe even today. I'll let the pros weigh in, but the photos do indicate processed surfaces for the FE cents and an unnatural color for the IHC, IMO. Sad that the bad guys are still out there and will always be with us. Hang in there, I've gained much more that I've lost on "lessons" and still love the hobby.

    As a Washington collector, I was closely following this set as it sold. I was amazed at some of the prices these things brought. Was anyone else following it? I posted a few highlights below... 1932P MS67: $23K!! https://www.greatcollections.com/Coin/564880/1932-Washington-Quarter-NGC-MS-67-CAC-OH 1937S MS67: $3K https://www.greatcollections.com/Coin/564831/1935-S-Washington-Quarter-NGC-MS-67-CAC-Toned

    Your understanding is correct. I put them under a microsope before I consider them FS. Can't tell about this coin--need a lot more blown up image.

    I've always loved Jeffersons and these are cool but who is the designer ? Original pattern design ? I found out what Full Step Jefferson Nickel Club is but where are the steps ?

    As promised here is a Flying Eagle Cent that got a straight grade. This one is graded by PCGS as an MS-65. The finish on these coins is not bright and shiny; it is a satin like finish. There is mint luster, but it is not bright.

    I suspect there is a difference in perception between "older" and "younger" collectors. Since the last sale (Pogue coin) occurred in 1982, "most "younger" collectors have never seen it come up for sale and it's "out of sight, out of mind". The same applies to other traditional "ultra elite" coins such as the 1822 half eagle. For those of us who are older or somewhat older, I remember it from the Red Book as an entry where there was no price listed by grade, only a prior auction or the number known. This is why it stood out to me. Of course, now there are other coins which were described likewise that I don't think amount to much of anything, so it's all relative. The primary example being the 1861 Pacquet reverse double eagle which I consider the most overrated coin in all of US numismatics. Today, I'd rate the 1854-S half eagle #2 among half eagles, Concurrently, many or even most other denominations don't have any "ultra elite" coins by my standards. This includes the cent, quarter, half, gold dollar, quarter eagle and eagle.
