pepactonius, your 1847 half dollar is gorgeous! Can you tell us the die paring? I love how the die crack appears to have created a teardrop at the bottom of the R.

All large cents are beautiful - sure, I'm not biased..

that being said, Pep, you always have amazing coins, but that 1847 Large Cent is gorgeous and everything about it is just "on" especially that color!!



Please note that I appreciate EVERYONE's coins being shown, from Poor to Uncirculated, but I just don't have the time to leave comments on all of them! So don't feel left out!

@tdziemia I agree, it meets the criteria for a VG (3 letters of LIBERTY) or a nice G+ as graded. It's really tough to find early Liberty Seated coinage in circulated grades that hasn't been cleaned, abused, or damaged, so if you run across coins like that, they're always worth picking up if you have a bit of spending money in the coin budget. Even just watching eBay auctions over the last 5+ years the quality of most of the raw older coins being offered up out there for sale continues to go downhill. Pick those cherries!

Is there a reference work that has all the die varieties for Seated half dollars?

Love all the coins - Especially your crowns Numis Rob, they are on my bucket list!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Sorry, pepactonius. Please disregard. I was thinking Bust half dollars when I was looking at your Seated half.

I couldn't agree more, @princetane. Quality of coins posted in the "How Far Back" threads just keeps getting better.

Looking forward to September when I will start having more to contribute.

Looking forward to the 1820s and 1810s, when I have more to contibute.

Tdziemia - I know your focus is jetons and 16th - 18th century French coins and Eastern European groats and can't wait and also erafjel with his 17th and 18th century Swedish coins.

1846 British sixpence (detector find):

Shilling:

Halfcrown:

There are subtle differences between the halfcrowns of 1838-50 and those of 1874-87. On the earlier coins the Queen's neck is slimmer and the portrait looks slightly more elegant. The numerals of the date are also smaller and more widely spaced, and the 'VICTORIA DEI GRATIA' is in a slightly different font with thicker and shorter letters.
