So managed snap up another Buffalo Two feather. This one even has some nice laminations. Can't beat it at less than $3 total.

What grade (perhaps details do to scratches) do you think this would be?

I'll say F-15 sharpness, but cuts will detail it.

I'll chime in agreement with the Frog on F-15ish, most likely details from the scratches, but not the laminations .

Could be the lighting, but the reverse looks a bit polished. I'm at F12 Details, scratches.

I believe my 30-S is about an F15 as well, but you definitely beat me on the price. Can't be $3! Congrats on another 2F!

Still need to take pics of mine

Edit: oops, meant "can't beat $3!" I really need to proofread!

Yup Ty2020b, it was only $2.73 after tax and shipping. I was expecting someone/anyone to bid too. Maybe the Lam scared them off.

Yes that's correct Ty. I've found 4 that I've been able to afford to get, given my spending limits.

TY you wouldn't be bidding on a 1915 P would you. I think maybe we are competing on that coin. I'm at my limit, but its a nice coin.

@ Sheldius, I am!! looks like a nice VF sans the couple reverse hits. I'm dead set on getting it, tougher date and everything I've been coming across in that grade is 4x what this one is at. We'll see how the bidding goes!

That's a decent 1930-S two-feather. I agree with F Details. It has a nice coast-to-coast obverse lamination, too. Just off the top of my head, I can't remember seeing a 1930-S two above mid-grade. They must exist in higher grades, but maybe not in quantity? Good pick!

Yup Coop, just like the 3 legged buffalos. Still I'll collect at reasonable price when I can.
Thanks Fortcollins.
Ty, sorry you didn't get that sweet 1915! Still I tapped out below $50. You sure made someone pay for it.
I've got another 2 feather buffalo on the way, and probably a 2 and 1/2 feather 1927 D. Picked it since it has the "island" feather which PCGS seems happy to grade as two feather.

Very nice! I'm a fan of the laminations, like a two for one deal on a solid coin.

Yup, missed out! Yet again, I was willing to go up to $200 on it, thought I could snag it at $175. O well!
