Not a super amazing RPM, but I ended up buying a coin lot with a lot of toned coins in it and reminds me just how much easier it is to see the minor stuff on a toned coin rather than a shiny red one. Split serifs can be buried in the glare on the bright ones, but just leap out on a high grade brown coin.

TB,
Just wondering at what level of numismatic knowledge you were at when you joined CCF?

Thanks for the super kind words! And John, I would say that when I started up with CCF I wasn't very far along the learning curve. My whole deal started years ago when I bought a bag of 5000 wheat cents from a dealer for no good reason. I just thought it would be neat to look through them not really thinking about anything in particular. But I found a couple lamination errors and then started poking around for some varieties and found a couple of those. Probably spent a year just fussing over the three attribution sites and making notes and learning all the things related to varieties, and then started putting some time into CCF to both get feedback and to see more images of coins. It was back then, seeing an endless array of non-variety coins posted with OP's asking questions, that I realized that posting actual varieties regularly would improve the usefulness of the site for everyone, so I have just continued to do that over time.

Well, you are a fast learner and caught on very well.I would rank you well above my 50+ years in the hobby.

I find digging deeper into subjects, widens out what you learn. I'm finding coin facts as I continue to look even deeper. Seeing how die events happen during a dies life. How it shows on coin. Even look for coin sites, helps you learn what to look for. The more you know, the more you will retain, it you dwell on it and use this information. It is the research that helps you learn more. So when I find something different, I share with others for them to be benefited by. I make corrections when needed and move forwards. I always have an open mind on coins. You never know when a curve ball will be tossed your way. (Something new or something there and missed, will always be tossed at you) The deeper you search, the more you will learn. (Cause and affect often alter my thinking)
