I love this series!
Although I find this particular issue sort of crudely made, I kind of like that about it. It will be going into my next world submission to NGC when I get around to it.
I really find this era to be my favorite. Really neat artwork and expertly made and affordable even in gem grades.
This one I bought raw for 100 bucks and it graded MS 64. I just can't find them graded already and I have to do it that way most of the time. Thanks, Matt
Yes I agree, but they are not bad considering they were designed, engraved, minted, and distributed in such a short period of time. And the many inconsistencies in minting make it such a wonderful and challenging expedition into variety types, that you can spend years collecting and cataloging on the cheap.
BTW. That's a very nice 20 Centavo you got there.
This is mine.
The minting on your 1915 5 Centavos coin Siberian Man is exceptionally good.
The planchet is good and the rim is crisp. Only one die crack on the reverse side.
Too bad this wasn't an UNC RED. It would have been an amazing coin. I don't like slabbed coins, but I would have sent it to NGC.
In any case, It's a great coin.
Thx for sharing.
