  1. Thanks. I was suspecting MD - and based on the link, its a "textbook" example. Bummer, but all part of the fun.
  2. To help expedite, I have decided to pay for the coin in real money (that's right... REAL money)!
  3. I am a new collector, and have been at this for a year in April. Given that I have done all of my collecting in a COVID lockdown, I enjoy looking at the registries to compare coins and develop my eye to the extent that a photograph will allow. I am particularly looking to develop my eye in coppers, as there can be a wide variance in color within an associated color grade (RD, RB, BN).

  8. Really? I think the Weir Farm is a nice looking coin. Congrats on the find! In my opinion, the ugliest quarter ever minted was the 2017 Effigy Mounds. I mean Iowans no disrespect, I am sure the park itself is lovely.
  9. The coin bounty hunter. I smell finders fees in your future. Geek on, sir. Geek on. Let me know when you are accepting "coin find" challenges.
  10. I have a Cal Ripken Jr. signed HOF $1. The signature is on the PCGS label inside the slab. The coin occupies the modern commemorative spot of my 7070. You can see it here
