      I'm around. Guess I've taken somewhat of a break from the forums lately.

      No. Its the whole set. The silver dollar, half and the $5 gold in PF 70s. I have more than $600 in this set.

      Hello Vess-

      Just a quick note that you have some beautiful Morgans in your album. I am envious; nicely done!

      Congrats also on completing your Franklin set. Just today I *saw* a completed set in AU (or thereabouts) and thought it fantastic. Nicely done!

      Best regards.

      Thanks! It's a G.B. 1889 NGC MS-64 with gorgeous toning. I dont have much foreign coinage but I really like the British stuff. This is one I wasn't looking for but couldn't pass it up when I ran across it.

      That's a fine looking Victorian Sixpence.

      rlm, you're right! I should have known that. Averaging doesn't work when you have the 4 different angles. I'll go back there and make a mention of it. Thanks. I would rather be proven wrong than give false information to somebody.

      Just FYI, here is what I posted on TomCorona's page.

      "Sorry, but I think you will find that the shape and therefore its area are not defined by the dimensions given. You need at least one angle or a cross measurement, etc. Without knowing another fact, the opposite corners could be anything between about 70 feet apart (nearing a triangle) to about 500 feet apart (nearing a rhombus) and on to 880 feet apart (nearing another triangle)."

      I enjoyed your Morgan album. So that's what Morgans look like! Mine look nothing like those, just worn out coins that wouldn't constitute the lowest ranking. I love the toning and your description of the colors. It kind of melds the artist in me with the coin experience. I've learned a lot from you. Thanks.

      Glad I could help! Your photos while they aren't the best, look very good how you have them set up, and also my new way makes it look even sexier... lol

      Thanks malak. It's a 1938-D/S NGC graded MS-66 with beautiful rose toning I found at a show. The single light source cast a lot of shadows making the high relief really stand out in the pic. It has an excellent strike. One of my favorites for sure.

      Hey Vess, thought I would drop in and say hello:) I agree with what you said on the post "newbie needs help" about getting a Red Book, that is a life saver for newbies and the old timers:)
