For a low MS grade this one has a ton of luster.

I dont understand the 62 grade on that lustrous beauty ... I think it should be a 64 at least.

 

Blame it on the 10 seconds or less they allow per coin in grading :/

Reminds me a lot of a coin I recently sold. This 1929 is the coin that made me fall in love with copper of this color.

Bob you got ripped on the grade on the 29. It's an easy 64. ND coming strong with those mpl's!

It was already graded when I bought it. I'm not sure if I will have it regraded or not.

 

The price difference between 62BN and 64BN isn't that great, but this coin does have more eye appeal than a run of the mill 64BN. At least in my opinion. :cool:

Thanks for the welcome Bob and copper toning. I love MPL's- I dont think my collection will ever be complete! You have a pretty impressive collection yourself Bob- wow!

Yes, that is a great looking 1912. 1912 was a tough year in respect to colorful toners, but the ones that do exist are second to none in eye appeal.

 

I was the proud owner of the 1912 in your #2 set for about a year. It became the victim of the upgrade bug. I still think it looks as nice as any 66BN I've seen.

 

Here is one that was too tough to pass up.

That's a great looking coin Bob! I'm still looking for a 1915- they are tough to find as nice as yours. With most coins I collect, I'm satisfied with having one of a single date/MM. Not so with MPL's- the amazing toning some of them have make them so unique. Who knows- I'll probably have a third 1912 one day!

IHC, welcome to the forums, that's a super nice IHC and a very interesting die clash. Never seen one that prominent on an IHC. Fixed your picture link.
