My favorite isn't listed, (Bust Halves) soooo.......????

None of my favorite designs are either.  Most of these US designs are supposedly the "most popular" as in widely collected because the coins which most US collectors actually prefer are too expensive or aren't available in sufficient numbers.

My favorites are Draped Bust and the Capped Head half eagle, the latter not because of the design appeal but because practically all of the dates are actually (somewhat) rare.

I'm sorry, but in a poll you can only put 20 options!

I hope the (NGC) change that....

If your favorite coin is not listed then vote for your 2nd favorite.... Or favorite design, reverse, ect.

I mean the real 1921-1935 Peace Dollar ones. The ones after that (if there are any) are not in the red or blue book.......

Why do you put the WLH with the Franklin?  The WLH is a beautiful design and the Franklin is one of the ugliest.  Ok ugly is a strong word, but the Walker is one of the top design in US history in my opinion.  Certainly in the half, the only coin worst than the Franklin is the Ike, and that is because the Franklin will tone nicely.   :devil:

Moonlight Mint has current production 1918 Broken Sword high relief overstruck Peace Dollars if you like this kind of work. I think these are very attractive examples of what the original sculptor intended these to look like. To each his own taste B|

While many of D. Carr's Moonlight Mint works are attractive, they are, BY DEFINITION, not coins.  A coin is something that is OFFICIALLY sanctioned money.  

With regards to the poll, my all time favorite design is not on it, and would be the DBHE design.  Of that design, I'd say the larger the coin, the more I like it.   

One suggestion that I might make for the poll is that you don't have one of the most collected designs of all, the Lincoln cent.  Given that you have a limit of 20 choices, and given that you've got the Barber design in three different sizes, I suggest you use the Barber design as one single design Type, add the Lincoln cent as another choice, and then you could add one other design.  I'd suggest using either the Indian Head Cent or the Liberty Seated design as your extra design (or of course you could split apart the Walking Liberty and Franklin halves).

A lot of his stuff fits that definition, with post mint damage. D Carr is in the business of selling beautiful PMD

I would call his latest high grade 1918 'Broken Sword' overstrikes actually a correction to poorly executed mint procedures of 1921 rather than damage.

Both of those '44 cents are fake. The websites even plainly say they are fake. And, for the benefit of anyone who might be viewing this thread at some future point: Aliexpress is a site designed to enable Chinese retailers to dropship goods all over the world. You will not find authentic US coins on that site. You will, however, find plenty of counterfeit coins.

I wouldn't even trust the Chinese coins that are listed on that site.
