I just upgraded my Missouri Commem in my 50 coin Silver Commem Type Set. Yes, at some point it was dipped, but apparently gently enough to still merit a CAC.

Very nice looker

If I may ask, how/why do you say it was dipped? Just for my education.

Silver that's 100 years old will tarnish (tone). It's true that in most cases toned coins prove "originality". While knowledgeable numismatists for the past few decades have drilled into us that originality is what we should all seek, there is a large but silent group, including me, that prefers silver coins to look as if they were made yesterday, particularly 20th century silver. This allows the coin to look like the designor intended it to look.

Too much dipping will strip away the natural luster of a coin, leaving it white, but flat. That is NOT good at all. However, even CAC, who is very tough on how coin surfaces are handled, will apply their sticker to coins whose outer "skin" has been removed by gentle dipping to reveal the true "original" beautiful luster underneath.

Here's a hotlink to my 50 Coin Classic Silver Commem Type Set. While the "Not So" True Views show tremendous detail, they often do not show the true luster of the coin in hand. So in this set, if you click on the photo of a coin, you can then use the arrows to see other photos provided of that same coin, along with others. All 50 coins have a CAC.

Those are nothing short of some of the most beautiful coins I have ever seen. Eye candy for me.

You are way too kind, but thank you! Feel free to take a peek at the hotlink in my "Signature" area at the bottom of each of my posts that shows my Digital Dansco 7070 Registry Set.

Spent 3 long years of my life down the road from Sedalia. Not much going on there in 1994...imagine there was a whole lot of nothing going on there in 1921.

This sounds like the quote "I spent a week in Cleveland one weekend", lol. You spent three long years in Sedalia Missouri in 1994!!!!!
