Thank you, Kiwi, for the kind words. I've stayed out of this thread because the Haxby numbers are confusing to me and make my head hurt. However, I have some of everything already shown plus some that haven't been on here yet.

..Was bought looking like this..but arrived with the piece missing.
I would never have picked at it..and we would never had been the wiser that something was lurking inside that cent.. I feel that the seller saw something when packaging,..and picked at it ,..and then lost the piece as it broke off..
I asked him to search for that missing piece,..but he never found anything..
He gave me a partial refund for receiving something different than his advertised pic..
