Nice blue and rose highlights:

I take it the certification number was on the reverse.  Nice coin!

That's pretty cool. I've never seen the Hallmark slabs before. I'll have to research them.

I love their slogan: The Connoisseur's HALLMARK Grading Service.  First time I have seen any holder with the grade on both sides. If I am not mistaken, this coin is one of the few named after the figure depicted on the reverse and incorrectly referred to as a Buffalo instead of a bison.

I went to a local coin show, the Alabama Numismatic Society, show today. It’s not really a numismatic society but a yearly show. Anyway I bought I think 8 or 9 things. A few Mercs I needed, a Franklin for an album, etc but this was my favorite. This is one I think the true view pictures don’t do justice. The toning is lighter in hand and it’s really an appealing coin graded MS 66+. I left if a couple times negotiating and the third time I went back to the table I had to have it. It will fit nicely into my slowly accumulating type set.

Re: @Woods020 1850 Liberty Seated Half Dime

I second that (thumbsu.  To avoid non-buyer's regret, sometimes you have to stop your procrastination and get it while you can.  Nice blue circumferential toning, strong strike and a serious MS-66+ grade made possible by a lack of surface commotion.

I happened through Meridian Mississippi today on my way back from a work trip, and looked to see there was a small coin shop there. No expectations. I ended up with these three. The guy was very nice and reasonable. I’m not a big Franklin guy, but he has very nice franklins galore. A few top pops I saw. I have a hard time passing up anything with a star that is justified. 
 

The seated dime is in a really old and cracked ANACS slab graded MS 64, and I paid 64 money. The toning is beautiful and I and going to get it reslabbed and feel like it has a 50/50 shot or better getting an upgrade. We shall see. But the eye appeal sold me.

Was looking in my gold collection it was that last US coin I’ve bought back in 2017 I been taking break from US coins and working on my world coins since … anyways 2016-W gold Mercury dime (I don’t like the black core slabs that much they show hairlines on slab to easy, the dealer I got this from must of wiped the slab)

20212 whitman's ''red book''....picked it up at a ''goodwill'' store for 3 bucks.......brandy new never read,fresh pages.

A Twenty Two-Hundred Twelve Red Book is most assuredly the rarest volume in the entire series!  As Archie would say to Edith:  "You done good, [r23!]  You done good!"
