I just need the 1936 Satin Proof and the Brilliant Proof (I'm bidding on the Brilliant as of this moment - I hope I win)







(I think that I need to do a better job at resizing the files in the future)

Well done!

The scratched TPG holders are a visual distraction. I imagine they are beautiful in hand.
Take a look at my other hobby ... http://www.jk-dk.art
Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

I agree that the holders are not in the greatest shape - I may trey to polish them up somehow, I will buy a cheap modern coin in a scratched holder and try to polish it up before I try in on these.

And, yes - they look awesome on hand - just the newest one (the 1937) has a contact hit on the sideburn which is a tiny bit distracting, but with only 9320 ever minted, I'm not crying too hard over it - I wonder what the survival rate are for this year coin is? I'm willing to bet that most have been lost forever or stuffed into a closet and forgotten...

Well, I won the auction on the 1936 Proof - it is ungraded though (so I took a huge chance) but the bidding was low got it for $290.00 USD.

As soon as it comes in I'll send it in to get verified by PCGS, but not before I post the raw coin here. On the chance it is not a proof, I'll be having a long chat with the seller and the auction house. Now there is another 1936 proof that is graded by PCGS that I'm also looking at so who knows, maybe I'll get that one too, keep the best and resell the other...
