Hi, I don't usually collect foreign (non-USA) coins but I do have about 100 or so. Thought some of you out there more involved with non-USA coinage might appreciate these. I do collect egyptian artifacts that's why I picked these up. This set was limited to 1,999 issues and if you think the US mint ships slow, these took almost a year to recieve. I will tell you one thing tho, the quality of these coins rivals any PR69DCAM US coin. One of my main collecting areas is PCGS PR69DCAM coins and these will stand up right with them as far as quality goes. I do have another non-USA coin I will need all your help identifying (as soon as I find it to take a pic) all I can tell you is it's smaller than a US cent, dated 1851 and has a "w" with a crown on top of it. I haven't been able to find it in any library book or internet source. I'll find it later and post a pic and let you folks with more non_USA experience identify it so I know how to classify it. MM
