Superlative beyond words!  And yet, there are some, among them -- our much beloved VKurt "embrace the change" B, who has publicly declared he has never, and will never buy a coin, sight unseen, and not in his hand (and does not see the utility of a Set Registry citing non-strategic  competition.) What more would one need to know beyond what's been presented here?  Just minutes ago, I received from DHL a coin I never laid eyes upon from an overseas location, an 1908 MS 67 French 20-franc gold rooster which I expect to supersede the MS 66+ now lying in my Set Registy ATS  -- at a cost differential of $300. All I knew is what I had seen in pixilated form.  I am not at all ashamed to say I would not hesitate to purchase a coin, sight unseen, from someone I do not know and never met.  Nice catch, robec1347!  You've got Coinbuf droolin' and that speaks volumes. (He won't refute this because he's got me on Ignore.)

I always enjoyed reading Kurt’s posts before he left Coin Talk. I also listened to a radio interview with Kurt a few months ago on the subject of coins. Most of my coins have been purchased by sight in pixilated form.  For the most part I have not been disappointed. This particular coin I had seen in hand when I photographed it while still with its previous owner 10+ years ago. This coin was part of a run consisting of 20-25 other 1941-D’s with the Cert numbers in sequential order. The majority were graded 67RB, with just a few one point lower. I found another from this small hoard on eBay 3 years ago with the Cert number 11.
