I would purchase that coin in a heartbeat based solely on the reverse tone.

 

I agree. I would purchase the coin in a New York minute. ;)

 

Is that a New York minute calculated by a cab driver?

P.S. How have you been? I haven't seen you around that much lately.

Just curious how could it be a new pickup, when it's currently for sale on Ebay?

Did you consign it to Shane? Or are you Shane from kryptonitecomics?

OP's post date was 5/26/12. I don't see that as a new pick up based on your post date.

Thanks for pointing that out Silverhawk, didn't realize the thread was that old. It's for sale now, pretty sure it will go for a few hundred, probably several.

I'm surprised it hasn't made that jump to over $500, I'm sure it will. Highly attractive pieces don't go unnoticed. Good luck with it.

I believe it will, right before the end of the auction (wishful thinking..? lol)

 

A couple months back I sold (also through Shane) a beautiful Morgan that was all toned in blue on the obverse (I think it was a 1884-O NGC 64 CAC), and it was stuck on $260 or $280 the whole week until the last 50 seconds (!!). Then jumped to $300+, and closed at $513 hehe..

I know many buyers wait to the last seconds of the auction to bid.

 

Not to advertise/spam, but it really is a magnificent coin, and very lustrous and with vibrant colors that you just have to see in hand to understand..

 

Shane is doing a great job on the pictures and I'm very pleased with what I got for all the consignment coins he sold for me!
