Battled 2 other people for this one at auction. Probably the cleanest, best struck nickel in my collection. Halo effect. Pics do it no justice. 39 REV OF 38 / 67-5FS. Pop 2/1

If ever a rumor is started that that is Mrs. Jefferson peering from the window right above the M in Monticello, I will take credit for it.  Fine catch!  (The coin, not the woman.)

Crazy. Never noticed that before. You definitely get the credit from me.

Thank you! I was really tempted to get an 1896-O graded Fine (Raw) but it wasn't that nice of a coin for the grade (the 1896-O is very high on my want list).

I'm really liking the challenge of this series... almost every date/mint is scarce @ Fine or better but the only real "Stopper" is the 1892-O "Micro O" variety.

I've got a long way to go but I've only been collecting for approx 2 years with less than a year devoted to Barber Half Dollars.

Does anyone believe this could be a 1922 low relief sandblasted matte proof peace dollar.  I got this coin from my great grandfather who was in the navy in world war 2 an he was an avid coin collector of rare coins. Left the great grand kids around 60 rare coins an this was one I received for Christmas a few years back. Thanks for your comments.

I picked up this seated liberty quarter that I think is pretty cool.

It is much more than cool. I'd rather have a classic design in my pocket than a Washington who is already honored on the one-dollar bill. That is why I am pushing for revisiting classic designs such as this truly magnificent example in time for our nation's 250th anniversary, or sestercentennial.

In February thru April, 1924, 142,080 pieces were coined at the Philadelphia Mint with 80 pieces reserved for annual assay and 87,000 sold for a $1 each to the public. A quantity of 55,000 pieces went back to the Treasury Department, which placed the coins into circulation. Designed by George T. Morgan chief engraver of the mint, used designs suggested by Dr. John Baer Stoudt. Distributed by The National Huguenot-Walloon New Netherland Commission, Inc., Rev. John Baer Stoudt, director.  Associated with the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. Image courtesy of GC.

     Approved by Congress on February 26, 1923 and issued in commemoration of the three hundredth anniversary of the settling of New Netherland, the Middle States, in 1624, by Walloons, French and Belgian Huguenots, under the Dutch West India Company.

 Coin Description:

Obverse: Profiles of Admiral Coligny and William the Silent, with their names, in small letters, below. Inscription above, ‘United States of America.’ Below, ‘Huguenot Half Dollar.’ To right of busts, In God We Trust.’
