    I guess I only looked at the second coin, as there were so many duplicate images. They were removed though and now there’s a picture with the obverse of the coins attached.

    Let me post them again:

    I hope that’s ok with you @Seascape
    Can you remove them from the flip and take better pictures? If it’s the O-109a you can quit your job ;-)

    No worries. Please just remove them from the flips and take pics of the full coin, both OBV and REV.

    From the obverses both look like 109s...as for retiring if it is the single leaf, I wouldn't go that far, but it is worth a nice premium.

    Edit to add, based on the new pics outside of the holder--no single leaf.:arghh:

    Well shit. Guess I'll drag myself out the door again tomorrow. I'll take the other out of the flip tomorrow if you need a better look. I pushed snow for 13 hrs today so I'm hit. I work really hard for these coins.:rage:

    Same here. Every dollar spent is hard earned. Keep on keeping on.

    I was fortunate today. My dealer bailed me out of the duplicate 1813 today. Every penny - less tax I paid.

    This mistake made me stop and think.

    But anyhow...1812 on its way from L&C. I'll post it when it gets here Monday. Thanks guys!

    Instead of going for a set im just buying ones I like. One day when there only a few blanks left I'll fill them in. I already have duplicates but no two same die marriages I don't think.

    I don't mind having duplicates at all. I'm more a sucker for pretty coins.
