    Picked this one up today (midweek working hours sniper that I am)
    I'm kind of excited for it to come in. Photos aren't great but it has serious potential, from an estate sale collection, paid MS61 price. This kind of date, mint, and luster I'll take my chances.
    It will be sent off for grading. 1883 ccob.png 1883cc rev.png

    It is attractive, but something is not right with the piece. It may be the blurry photos, I don't know, but I did increase the size and still had a waita-minute feeling.

    Jack Young wrote about this, I think.
    Maybe you can find it, I don't know.

    I do know that the majority of these so-called Estate sales are seeded. There used to be brazillions of them in DC in any given week, and Estate myazz....

    We'll see soon enough, Sunshine. :D

    Seller has a couple of other items with the same potential up for auction. I'm watching. A couple of months ago a guy was liquidating his private collection. He had cracked them out, but had saved the slabs they came out of. They were spectacular but not a good value purchase because of solid documentation. You win some, you lose some.

    The images are terrible and the coin may be better in hand, but I always try to attribute a coin 1st when researching it.

    Images of this one on the right to the known VAM reverses:

    The current CN pieces use a common CC reverse for every date; they are also casts and regularly do not fill out the "O" of "OF":

    Good luck with this one Sunshine...

    I notice the complete lack of detail on the interior of the wings - totally bald. I also note the lack of denticles around OF. I shy away from anyone who touts "estate find" in their listing - literally everything is in someone's estate, so it's meaningless. I hope it works out for you but I'm not getting a warm fuzzy.

    I just watched one of your interview videos at a coin show with a coin dealer. Good stuff. Apparently some fakes are good enough to fool PCGS.

    Wasn't exactly an estate find. Seller claims that they were his father's collection. He doesn't have very many coins out there for sale, but most of them are blazers.

    The photos are horrible. Here is another photo of the reverse. Jack pointed out the O in of was not filled in. It is. Also, the details of the wings appear in this photo. The denticles appear weak as discussed but they side view.png are there.
