What about chocolate milk spots? (I can neither confirm nor deny that cookies were involved)

Vermontensium - you beat me to the SGS dig.

But are they authentic holes?

I'm leaning toward PMD.....

TV Hype About "Early Release", "Black Label" Etc

I've read the coins that get the "Early Release" label are actually simply ones that are shipped to the TPG's first (by the buyer) and have nothing to do with the timing as it relates to the mint or production. The way I understand it, coin 'A' may be minted before coin 'B' yet 'B' could be labeled "Early Release" while 'A' receives a standard slab. I also see premium priced slabs signed by the Mint Director etc. That wouldn't get my money but whatever floats your boat!

Also, after seeing the prices, I would never buy from a TV shopping channel.

mrlandpirate - nice proof and Ben

Jack - I've never seen one of the Obama dealios - Hope it stays that way.

North Texas - my last 10 or so boxes were similar - a proof now and again, a few NIFC, but no silver. I've been telling my wife that I hope she's not too offended with all the skunk smell.

Earle - I've seen it before but I cannot imagine how many eyes fell upon that Barber and let it keep going down the line. Glad you got it.

After a few months of nothing really to declare. I got a call from a teller saying she had ($400) some halves. Across from their branch is another bank where I got loads of Ikes and a few silver halves. I stopped there first, picked up 8 CWR's then went and grabbed the $400. The $400 produced a few hole fillers and a proof.

The eight CRW's, on the other hand, produced:

65 x 1
66 x 4
67 x 10
68-D x 7
69 x 5

1962-D ben

83-S proof & 2003-S proof

92-D & 98-D in near pristine MS (look that way anyhow)

2 x 1971-D both clean, not much wear but the "D" mint mark is different. Also maybe the 7 is not the same. Tey're put back study on the weekend.

I bought one of these. After I got it, I bought 5 more simple because they were so cheap. They're cheaper than the batteries they use! Best I've ever used. Nice light source. Spot on.

I got a second chance. The guy had more of the sets I was bidding on. ('46 mint set if I remember correctly). I took him up on it, got the set, and had no issues. I still get occasional email from him through eBay. It end up that he just turns over a lot of mint sets.

Let the wiser members chime in but I think only marketing. It 'may' fetch more on eBay but its the same coin. I see prices jacked up for slabs signed by the mint director that I wouldn't spend extra for either. One of the best things I've read here in the forum was, " buy the coin not the slab".

BenByfield - it was a 1971 - It's a lovely coin. I'd never seen one before now. I'm becoming more of a fan of the UK mint with every coin I see. May make a purchase soon.

In any event, the actual color is a reddish brown. iPhone photos below.










The pics don't do the coin justice. Maybe a USB microscope camera before long.

Question for my peers. I picked up a nice PCGS MS65+ Morgan. Looking in my coin world app, they have listings for MS63, MS63 D, MS64, MS64 D, MS65,& MS65 D. What is the significance of the D? I'm convinced it pertains to the grade and in no way related to the mint location. But what do I know? I'm jsut an ole' chunck a coal. (but I'm gonna be a diamond some day)

See example below.



Thanks in advance.

Nice going Broseph! I think I see some chocolate in the future of a few tellers in my town shortly!

jack jeckel - good to see things are turning around. I'm of a 10 box skunk fest. Although there has been the occasional NIFC, and 87-P, and a f pretty worn 76-s proof. Zilch on the silverino though.

Question for my peers. I picked up a nice PCGS MS65+ Morgan. Looking in my coin world app, the have listings for MS63, MS63 D, MS64, MS64 D, MS65, & MS65 D. What is the significance of the D?

Thanks for teaching Earle. That's one of the nobler aspects of our hobby. In 1974, Mr Kearns had a gas station (full service & garage of course) with a small coin shop in the back. Looking back, I remember how he was a natural at teaching us kids about coins. Making proofs, double dies, explaining bag marks, etc. Hats off to you Bill Kearns in that big Coin Shop in the sky.

Anyway, I found my first dryer coin. A1946 LWC. It's not too severe but has the flaring/ mushrooming. After explaining how the coin came to be deformed so, my wife & some friends THINK ME A GOD! Well maybe not but they were impressed. Thanks
