these are some sweet coins you all are posting.

winesteven - your buffalo is so flashy it doesn't even look real. those are great pictures of that excellent coin!

this is probably the best looking coin in my sheldon set. a lot of my sheldons are low grade or ugly.
S-276



its harder to pick a best middle date. many of these coins are attractive. today I like this one.
N-10

I collect low grade large cents. I currently have >230 Sheldon varieties and >235 middle date Newcomb varieties.

I believe the request was to post the most beautiful coin in your own collection, not what you believe theoretically has the most eye appeal.
Well then, I bought this coin back in 2013 because it looked so beautiful, and over the years I've had it I never really disagreed. Not that I would call my eye particularly well-trained, admittedly.

Unfortunately no straight pics, so you'd have to deal with a bunch of unsightly ancients around it... I could swear I've made some better pics, but I'm not sure where they are!



1907 IHC, with a giant rim bump by the date (but the green bit on Liberty's neck is just lint).
Not exactly worth much in this condition, but that cameo-esque toning is soooo pretty.

If I'm allowed a second post, here's one of my Large Cents in my Dansco 7070 - MS65+RD w/CAC. Bought as a 65RD, but I loved it so much, I sent it back to PCGS via Reconsideration. They agreed with me, and added on the "+".

The Seated dollar is PR64CAM w/CAC. As you can see, a few faint hairlines kept the grade from being higher. If you stare at Miss Liberty long enough, you just might see her slowly turn her head to look at you, lol.

In my opinion, this is the most eye appealing coin in my US coin collection.

Just love those pretty cheeks on Miss Liberty!

It's a pity these pictures don't really do her justice.

The thread wouldn't be complete without a Peace dollar so I offer this one.
