i have a normal well struck coin and a 'frosty' version of the same coin (not proof frosty). assuming that both coin are in the same general condition, which should I save. I'm thinking the frosty one was chemically cleaned at some point? what else would cause the frost?

Any chance you can post up full coin images of both coins?

Is there a reason why you can't save both?

Put the piece you like best in your book or are you looking to put the one with the most premium there?

There are no rules as to what one SHOULD keep and pass on, this is your collection, build it as you see fit.

good point, but I just don't want to save a coin that's been damaged/devalued/altered previously (not that these are worth anything). sort of like why I wouldn't want to save a coin that's been platinum plated or painted. i'd like to be able to tell whether a coin is in its "original' condition, so this is as much about learning what happened to make these coins different as it is which one is more "valuable". that's all.

If you had to choose between one or the other look at the condition. One has an obvious distracting mark on the cheek, the other does not.

Personally, I'd go with the one on the left. Assuming it's as MisterT mentioned.

Pics aren't the best, but I'd agree based on what I can see.

Did you flip the position of the coins in the first and second picture? Because I would pick:

Right coin in Pic 1
Left coin in Pic 2 and 3

Agree...looks like the coins flip-flopped. #2 in first pic and #1 in second pic.

Gack no! That would mean something I'm not ready to live up to, lol.

Amen, me too. I really enjoy collecting but there is so much to digest. It's a good thing I'm old, I can blame my ignorance on that! Let's just hope we don't get taken by the shysters out there.

Good Hunting!
