Ok, out of all your coins which one is your favorite?

I have a few but lately my favorite is the 1943 Portuguese Escudo 2$50. Several reasons include, I was born in Portugal. I like the look. Its silver and I really like the Reverse.



My second favorite is the 1897 IHC, its the only one I have in uncirculated condition. It has really pretty color.

What is yours?

Nice toning on that IHC! my favorite is probably my 1886 20 franc gold coin, or my 1884 S mint Morgan dollar

My favorite was an accidental find. It was an 1869 3CS I bought that turned out to be a more rare 1869/8.


Pardon the poor photos, the lighting was off.

I am not allowed to choose one. But if I did, it would be an Ike, of course.

"Out of your 2,000 kids, which one is your favorite?"

I don't know, exactly, some of my DMPL Morgans come to mind, or early copper, but I'm going to go with this one...

It is my Sweden 1 daler plate money from 1746.



I love large copper coins, and this is my biggest coin of any kind.
