Greetings fellow collectors

Some of you may remember me from about a year ago when I posted pictures of my 9 raw commemorative coins. I had questions about their grade and such and everyone, especially David, was very encouraging and helpful. My screen name at the time was Numismanic, but due to the close resemblance to another member here (Numismaniac), I changed it to something, um, more unique.

I've held off writing this email until I had actually shipped the coins to PCGS, which is finally done (filling out the form felt suspiciously like doing taxes)!

The previous photographs were of coins encased in these:



so there were issues getting accurate renditions.

I've taken advantage of their short-term rawness, removed them from the holders, and rephotographed them before shipment to California. Nothing between the lens and the coin, unlike before. I'm more pleased with the results this time and perhaps my technique has improved, as well. We'll see.

Anyway, I wanted to reintroduce myself and post the new pictures for your viewing pleasure. Some coins are better than others but thought it might be fun for everyone to take their best shot on what the mighty PCGS will say (hope the graders are in a generous mood that day). I promise to report back on every coin when the results are in.

I shall start posting them here shortly from highest to lowest mintage.

I look forward to your comments. Although I don't post much, I certainly have enjoyed the sharing that has occurred here. David, Commems, Muddler and everyone else deserves a big thank you.

Bill

Indeed ... welcome back amigo ... I missed the name change thing ... but do remember your valued contributions from a short while ago.

I'm looking forward to doing whatever I can to offer continued support to a fellow collector ...

Did you mention photos?

Best
