At least that was only at the beginning of the hunt/study. The 79 sets were mostly what I was after, I do have to say that the 80 sets were impressive. Then he said I will give you the 83 Philly, for the same price 4$ a set. So, 47 souvenir sets. 42 of the 47 were 1980 dollar souvenir sets 13 of them mint envelope, 4 - 79's only one in a mint envelope, and the 83 Philly set, not a mint envelope. When I get to the Quarter I will take the better photos. Back to the SBA's. I would like to see how many clad folks we have out there, Only 24 of the 80 will become a tip or a pack of cigarettes. Here is what I bought. I want to take an uneducated photo with a cell phone of two heavily abraded S mint's. But I think that they are better photo'd thru the lens of a camera, than cellophane. Lets start out this thread with what everyone knows about the SBA. What do you find attractive, is it the luster, is it the strike, what don't you find attractive. How about we give this conversation a few days and let me get photos. This is a series that doesn't get much attention. I have a lot of coins to go thru, and hope that you all go thru it with me..I need to empty a coin tray and have at it. Move back down to the camera We have found the end of my thread. I would hope that we get opinions from Insider, definitely Cplradar. The guy has an eye for clads. The above: These are specifically reserved for mint damage, die deterioration, planchet striations, rough planchets, interesting toning, Make sure you look at the strike first.
