This gets my vote. It was exactly how I forayed into the world of gold coins some 30-40 years ago. I still remember the exchange. Two quarter eagles and one half eagle and it ate up all my Christmas bonus that year..... BUT I did enjoy having several gold coins to enjoy and pour over rather than one single half eagle. It was much more satisfying to the collector side of me.
Not a bad choice....I might personally go for a larger denomination (more gold) coin.
If whoever could spring for a few hundred more, I'd go for a nice MS65 Saint-Gaudens if they want gold.
For $800 each, they can probably get some common MSDs with a CAC, right ? Or $800 might buy them an MSD 1-step up from common, huh ?
What do YOU currently own and buy ?
Most are outta my price range but i have found acouple worth watching. As i have NO gold coins beside a 1940s restrike gold peso, iam really just looking for older american gold coins. When the wifey gets off work to today, were headed in to the next town over to see what they have in there coin shops.
