Hey all! Time for an update! I've been quite bad about keeping this thread updated, so apologies! I've had some really great acquisitions and would love to share.
These photos were shot when the coin was raw. TBH this is an MS-63 IMO but NGC
gave it a 62.
This one is a PCGS
MS66RD CAC OGH coin I picked up. The greening on the reverse is invisible in hand and it's a blazer.
Anyone who knows me well knows I harbor no particular love for the Peace dollar
series. Less than ideal strikes, poor overall luster, and an unappealing design make this fall towards the bottom of the list for Classic Silvers I like. However, I fell in love with this coin. The luster on this coin is INSANE in hand, a white fireball! It graded NGC
MS66 with CAC!
This next one is pretty "generic" but I like the strike and color.
People who know me well also know I'm probably one of the strictest graders when it comes to strike designations. The full steps more so than others. So you can take it to the bank that if I'm buying a FS jefferson, it's full steps. This one has a sharper step designation than some proofs from this era I've seen, and at a PCGS
MS67FS grade, it takes the cake. And to make it sweeter, I got it at half of bid price.
This next one is another "generic", but I've like the Bi-Centennial washington for a while, so this was a nice buy at $50.
Last and in a lot of people's books (including my own) the SBA
dollar. While I don't love the coin design, I hate to admit it looks decent at MS67.
That's all for now
. There may be some very nice new buys in the coming weeks. Stay tuned....
