Oregon Trail is cool, but I love the Connecticut Tercentenary. Very cool eagle and the Charter Oak.

Nicely displayed - Oregon Trail is a beautiful coin and the design is very impressive.

everytime I look at that piece, I see another detail I didn't notice before (like the little wagons above the Indian's elbow heading out to Oregon). A good coin design is almost like good literature - the more you come back to it the more is revealed.

Nice Oregon commemorative. That picture really allows you to see it well. I also like the California diamond jubilee

I vote for 1996 Smithsonian proof, and the 2000 Library of Congress Bicentennial gold & platinum $10 for modern comm.

I would say the Oregon Trail for older comm.

Yeah it does tell a story , the Indians hand up in a stop motion to the east to say enough is enough...its next on my Comm list without question.
It was the first one I went after but I got deals on the lexington and pilgrim and Stone Mountain that set me back , the washington carvers and columbians etc have all chisled away at my Comms fund.
Im thinking a nice letter to Santa early enough might procure me a nice example
