I didn't buy these but someone did as a group of culls. I thought it was a cool picture of a lot of Capped Bust pieces. Enjoy the view!

Nice!! How much did the lot sell for? I would have interested in a pile like that!
Hi, my name is MikeF and I'm a degenerate coin collector. I also like adventure, big trucks, long walks on the beach and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Nice little hoard of culls ... fortunately, they still occasionally show up now and then!

Not sure but I'd love to have them too. Here's some comments about the group:

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity and challenge to examine over 200 Capped Bust dimes and half dimes from a
group that was purchased by a dealer friend as "culls," coins which are not generally holed and usually have dates but also show either damage or rather extensive wear; as such, these are considered less numismatically desirable than examples with less wear and no damage.

This treasure trove of likely unsearched Capped Bust coinage is one I would consider to be an opportunity for enjoyment and a window into the history of our coinage, rather than a scourge of trouble to be avoided.

Great photo. I'm not sure about the "likely unsearched" description, however!
