    Here's a coin that truly does not fit my collection even though I do have a good number for world coins.
    I purchased this specimen due to the slab an old Anacs soap bar that is pristine condition....I mean not a mark on it! As well the eye appeal of this coin. I do believe it would go up by at least 1 grade point if broken out and resubmitted.
    The reverse is rotated about 3 degrees to the right, and I do believe since it is copper nickel composition the carbon spot surfaced after being slabbed. The coin in hand is in the early stages of a lite copper color tone when the light hits the surfaces,which are full of luster,with very few hits.

    My thought is the copper nickel composition is not as reactive as 90% silver coins.

    I paid below 63 money....which is $75. In 63 , my question is what is 64 or 65 money on tthis specimen? Need to research the slab on what generation.

  16. little known fact most of the Cuban coins of 1915 were designed and engraved by Charles E. Barber 5th U S engraver and minted at Philadelphia mint

    Barber was the 6th U.S .engraver he also designed coins for both China, and the kingdom of Hawaii. Served under 9 U.S .presidents.
     
  18. sorry for the misinformation Barber was 6th engraver was a little rusty on my facts as I remember researching a few years back after I acquired some coins from Cuba dated 1915 and 1920 it was then I found out that Barber was the designer
