    I've always been a fan of the Liberty Head Nickels, so without a doubt that is my favorite, though your entire collection is truly spectacular.

    I am under 25. Thanks for the contest!

    Thanks for the contest. You have a very nice set of coins, but I would have to say my favorite would have to be the 1909 Indian Head Eagle. I have one just like it, but 1908. I also have a couple 1909 VDB cents, but I couldn't get a good picture of them tonight.

    my favorite is the 1909-s $10. i absolutely love the design on them and i particularly like San Francisco minted coins, maybe because i live closest to it. thanks for the contest.

    Thanks for the contest! I'm definitely in. I'm under 18.

    My favorite coin in your set, is by far your 1909/8 double eagle. It's a beautiful coin, especially being the only variety in the St. Gaudens Double Eagle series.

    I like the 1909 Liberty "V" Nickle in MS66 It has such great luster and pops out as a genuine and beautiful Coin. It is also hard to find high grade V Nickles. Its great. and im under 18

    Thanks for the contests

    I'm a little partial to the 1909 D Barber Quarter. Of the several holes I need filled, that would be one of 'em that I would covet. Nice devices on yours. I'm over 20, actually over 30 too ...so I'm not a YN.

    Also a great coin.

    Trivia question:
    Who discovered 1909 inverted S ?

    I have to say, my favorite is the '09 S VDB. I am a Lincoln collector through and through, and, this will, IMO, always be one of the top coins to get.

    As to age... I assume you are talking physical so I am over 25 :headbang: too bad you didn't go on my wife's perception of my age when I am at a coin show - I would easily hit the bottom rung (candy store anyone?):bigeyes:

    I'm under 25, and I think your Liberty Nickel is the most aesthetically pleasing.

    Yeah, I think it's pretty funny when folks complain about the recent proof/mint sets having so many different coins!!! :goofer: Not all of the years back then had 30 different though (the 1933 Mint Set had only 5 and that includes the 1933 Double Eagle!!!!). 1909 is special though with the change in the cent design, the controversy over the V.D.B. on the new Lincoln and the final year of coins from the New Orleans Mint.

    Well before I sent it to PCGS it was in an NGC MS65 slab!!! I've shown it to a couple of Barber experts and they (as well as PCGS) didn't think it had the original luster to qualify for a higher grade. It has apparently been dipped in the past to likely remove unattractive toning and in the process the original luster appears to have been muted. To compare take a look at my 1909-O Half which is beaming with original luster!! So much so that I know that the previous two owners each submitted it to PCGS for upgrade to MS66 and both times PCGS declined to give it the bump. I agree that the 1909-O Half wouldn't look out of place in an MS66 holder though, especially since the New Orleans coins typically have weaker strikes and some believe they are graded differently than coins of other mints.

    :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused: I don't even have a guess at that one???

    Thanks again for all of the nice comments and special thanks to all of you who have shared photos of your 1909 coins!! I love them all whether they are used and abused or whether they are mint fresh.

    Good luck!!!!

    My favorite coin in that set is the 1909 St Gaudens double eagle set because the St Gaudens double eagles are some of the nicest coins I've seen, such a beautiful design ever to be on a coin. It is quite the piece of art. The reason I say the 1909 St Gaudens double eagle set is because it's so hard to pick out my favorite mint because the St Gaudens double eagles are all so beautiful.

    Are you going to go for all 1909 foreign coins too. Some of them are awfully purdy. Traci
    My favorite - French Indo-chine 1909 Piastre

    Wow, Traci!! I'm not even done with this set yet!!! :eek:

    Actually, I thought about it briefly but there are hundreds of coins that would be needed. I might go for some of them that I like though.

    I am going to include the U.S. Philippines coins though as those were minted in San Francisco by the U.S. Mint and at the time the Philippines were a U.S. Territory. Here's one that I just got, it's a 1909-S Peso graded PCGS AU58 and is between the size of a half dollar and a silver dollar.

    I flat out love the 1909 quarter design over the others in the 1909 coin production
    I gotta say I'm 29 years old as I am a christian and don't believe in lying even if it could get me such a sweet looking piece.
    If I were you I wouldn't base votes on someone's age since this is the internet and there are no such thing as women here. Nor can ppl actually be held accountable to tell the truth.
    Please just 1 name in the hat for each person that asks to be put in the drawings you have.

    Well, I understand your concern over the potential for cheaters. However, I've run quite a few giveaways over on the Collector's Universe Forum and I always try to give the younger folks a better chance somehow as in most cases they don't have as much of a coin budget to play around with. Have people lied in my past giveaways??? Maybe... Are people lying in this current giveaway??? Maybe...

    That said, I see that a lot of folks are being honest about it too, like yourself. Anyways, even if there are a couple of cheaters, they're not guaranteed to win and the honest folks over 25 still have at least one chance of winningl. I guess I just have faith that most people will play by the rules I set up.

    Best of luck to everyone :thumb:
