Picked up several upgrades as of late, have also done a few crossovers and NGC/PCGS subs. Some grades have posted, and overall I'm happy with results. Will post a few here when I get pictures.

First up....1926 Phili. Some weakness in the hair above the braid, but overall strong strike. Amazing luster and frosty in hand. Very happy with this one.

Another upgrade. Luster appears better in hand with this one. Still struggling to find the sweet spot on buff photography to capture detail AND luster....

I love it! Outstanding to see someone, like myself, that's not afraid of a few detail graded coins. Eye appeal above all else. And you're nailing it. I'm working on one of my own, raw with clear full digit date and a 3/4 horn minimum housed in a green Littleton this time around. I see that were struggling with the same dates. Keep chuggin' along!

You have a fantastic looking set of Buffalo nickels in progress .

The 1926 MS66 you recently acquired is exceptional!

Thank you everyone!

The goal was to complete the set and THEN upgrade/crossover ANACS slabs, but I have had a tough time finding the usual culprits...... 1920's D & S. Decided to start picking up upgrades and send off any better dates/higher grades that I had. The journey will continue and will soon slow significantly on the tougher to find dates.

Will post better pics of a few of the others I have at NGC/PCGS when they arrive.

Ty, how do you store the slabs? In trays?
How about slab albums like those from Lighthouse or Eagle?

A few more upgrades and crossovers, rest of what was submitted is on my registry link.

Recent Pickup



This one was previously ANACS MS63. Id personally call this MS64, guessing they gave it an eye appeal bump for the toning (not really visible, but its the Profile pic on my Registry Complete Set). Cant say I agree, but Ill take it.

This is the one that started it all. Not AU or MS, but this was passed down from my grandmother, and as a kid of course the classic 3-leg peaked my interest. Will happily blame my grandmother for my love of Buffs. Decided to finally pull it from the album, get it slabbed and include it in the set.
