Well, I've added a couple more since this post started.

I don't know if this Morgan is NT or AT. To be honest, I don't really care because I like it and it was dirt cheap. It has much more color than I am able to show because I'm too damn dumb to figure out how. Any suggestions?

With all the hoopla about the price of silver, I thought I'd post this silver medal from the Paris Mint. It didn't cost much either.

 

Personally, the rise and fall of the price of silver doesn't bother me one iota because I don't intend to sell anything. I'll let the executor of my estate have that headache.

What a great thread and what a truly diverse group of coins...

 

Chris: Can't get a good sense of the colors of the Morgan from your pictures but it certainly looks NT from what I can see....love the medal 893applaud-thumb.gif

 

The 1920 SLQ with FH is a real winner and I love the color on the V Nickel.....one of my favorite coin designs for sure cloud9.gif

I was showing my wife some of the magnificant coins in this thread. She 'insisted' (as you know how they can!) that I post her newest coin. It is definately "Brilliant" uncirculated but, camera doesn't show!

This has been a great thread. Maybe we should keep this one going, ad infinitum, so we will always have a place to look at some of the new acquisitions. Many thanks to all!

last summer, found this at a tag sale my wife dragged me too. 1875 S trade dollar. the photo does not show all the detail in the head and the toes are clearly separated. there is a gouge/crack that runs from the U to 2 o'clock just above the T. can not tell what has caused it. Otherwise a great coin, and very rare find these days, in someones shoe box.

Whoops! Dang it! I drooled a little on my keyboard while savoring the toning on that 1810 C.B. Whew!

I love coin toning that, like old majestic tree trunk rings, seems to be spreading around the circumference very slowly as it matures and grows in stature and character!

Grabbing a napkin for my mouth,

This would be my lastest. I hate photographing through NGC slabs. Too much glare but I had to sacrifice something to get the true colors.

Got this 2 weeks ago but was just able to get 'reasonable' photo. MS-61 certified with old green lable from across-the-street (learning the lingo)

As I learn more about MS grading, I may send this in because I think it is better than MS-61

 

----thanks Chris for finding my wee grin.gif problem on this post.. foreheadslap.gif
