My 1901 in my avatar doesn't look that good! Beautiful coin.
But at least it has full rims and a clear readable date. That's what drew me to this coin. Being the key date was a great bonus, especially at the price.
Wish I could but they only had one. Lol
Nice coin,you mean rotated die.I understand what you ment by that but really use the correct terminology.
A slight slip of my fingers due to...we'll never mind as I don't want to go there.
Thanks. I also have an original racketeering Nickel.
Pictures or it doesn't existI think you posted it before.
coin i like it
Yes I posted it but I can't remember when. Can't find a photo of it either.
Thats fine I remember enjoy it while you still have it.
It's safely tucked away!
CRH find? The 1882 in my avatar is the one that got away.
I get large volumes of circulated coins five days a week that need to be sorted, and counted. I just saw stars on the rim, the coin was buried under other coins, and thought, that doesn't look right. Pulled it out and was in shock. Prettiest coin I'd ever seen in person, and held in my hand. I couldn't believe it. I've also found two standing liberty quarters, and six winged liberty dimes over the past 13 months. But the nickel is my favorite.
(Also close to 80 silver quarters and 80 Roosevelt dimes, about 40 silver nickels, as well.)
Your avatar is breathtaking. How'd she get away?
I certainly identify with that moment that 'something doesn't look right' and the delight that follows. Can be life altering, spur some discovery. Sounds like you have a steady stream to interesting coins!!
I was shown this coin at an LCS and it really caught my eye. But the price tag was more than I could justify at the time. But it's one that I often think about...and glad I snapped a quick photo when I had it in hand. I checked into it about a year later, and if it were there, I think I would have bought it. But it was gone, and the shop owner wished I had taken it to keep it local to the area. I didn't realize it at the time, but he discounted it quite respectably for me at the time. I only figured that out a year later when looking up similar coins before returning to see if it was still available.
I've had only a few of those moments with coins, and i remember every one, lol. When i find a silver Washington quarter, or Roosevelt dime, I'm always thrilled, but the adrenaline rush i get when i see a Buffalo, or winged liberty, something that REALLY stands out, i can feel my heart quicken... great feeling!
I came here to have fun with my daily finds, show off some swag. Then i see what real coins look like, here. Now I'm really hooked.
The coin story is heartbreaking. That'd bother me forever. Hope you're not as hard on yourself, as i am on me!
???...Same as Mercury dimes...or...? I'm not a dime man and may be missing something. Thx.
