Yes it is!
I didn't take photos of all the packaging so thanks for doing so.
Yes, I agree.
I agree that it’s a nice set, but the mintage was too high to really make it “underrated.” That is as it should be. The Bicentennial was a big celebration which really should have been bigger.
I don't disagree. A mintage of four million hardly agrees with "underrated".
But it should be remembered that a great number of these have been melted over the years because they were not nearly as popular as their mintage suggests. It's been nearly fifty years and many more have been destroyed inadvertently or degraded through negligence or intent.
Recently they've been acquiring a pretty significant premium to melt suggesting that for the first time since the '70's the demand for these is higher than the available supply.
"Underrated"? No, but seeing an even higher premium is quite possible.
I think I would call the high speed sets and the regular Gems, "underrated".
It's only on the case but I am concerned that it will get on the coin at some point.
Where I lived I didn't do newspapers as you needed a car but I did sell fresh picked blackberries on my banana seat bicycle door to door. I could only go about a mile from home but that was a lot of hours picking them.
I've never seen one in a LCS.
Certainly one of the better products they have produced but then again, that was 45 years ago.
i read this as fresh "pickled" blackberries and my mouth watered - even though I've never heard of pickled blackberries
