However, obverse 23 was only used on 2 pairings, O-136 and O-137. On well preserved specimens one can see the upper loop of what is ostensibly another 8 just peeking over the milling. The two pairings are rated R-4 and R-6 respectively. This one is unfortunately the R-4 O-136, all in all not a bad find at all.

    If it were me I'd find a football to spike.
    (Please, don't spike the coin.)

    Congrats!

    Neat find. What’s the dark gunk on the obv?

    IIRC from browsing my copy of Overton, 1827 literally has the most die varieties of the entire series, doesn't it? If I ever got seriously into Overton varieties, I'd probably try to put together all of the 1827s. It would definitely be a challenge!

    And what's this about buying coins on Facebook? Am I missing out by not being active on there?

    You’re correct, Paul, there are 49 die varieties for 1827. Good look finding O-149 R8 with only 3 known coins :-D

    It looks to be a stain of some sort. I have another bustie with something similar so I’m fairly certain that acetone won’t lift it off.

    You might be, I belong to five different coin groups, 3 are auction groups, one is a buy sell trade, and another is for sharing information. I see a lot, lot of primo stuff on there. As a matter of fact I just picked up a 14-s buffalo PCGS MS63 at near wholesale.

    I’m aware there are some very rare varieties. It’s more of an aspiration than a goal, but it would be an awesome way to collect almost half the varieties I’d need to qualify for membership in the Bust Half Nuts club.

    BQ, the early die state O-136 (prior to the mis-placed date being lapped off of the die)is quite rare--at least R-5+ and possibly an R-6 in and of itself. upload_2020-4-8_7-11-37.png

    Don't start on 27's. They're mine, I tell you, MINE!;)

    I have a feeling that if it becomes known that you are missing only O-149, one might come and find you. Just make sure your checkbook is open and ready.

    Wow. Thanks. That helps alot. I'm a R1 type collector. Well I'd like to ask a question. I have a Wisconsin low leaf quarter. Do they use the Rs on quarters or just real cool and old coins
