What is your description of original coins?
All but 1 are all struck by the US Mint, and that would be a SBA $ struck by the Moonlight mint.
No they are destroyed when I crack them out, but I do same the labels.
Not that means anything since they are just raw coins now.
Your picture sir of the "original" versus "upgrade" half cent and 3 cent pieces. I was simply saying I thought the ones on the left were more attractive.
Well there is nothing wrong with that.
I bought it because I liked it also, then I saw the other one and I thought I like it better.
Also the dot on the half cent is just a particle from opening the slab, it fell off when I placed it in the album.
Like Sly said "Different strokes for different folks.
I would never say that about anyone collection.
We all do the best we can.
Great response man. Just like I am not jealous of what others have, I do not feel any superior to other collectors. We are all here to learn about what we love in common, and collect and buy what we can afford. Every coin is worthy of having a home. Most of mine are not like my avatar, (which I bought because its the first picture of a coin of a woman named Irene in history, (my daughter's name)).
@medoraman that is an absolutely beautiful coin. Irene was quite ummm...something
More like, "Mom (Irene) Why are you gouging my eyes out????"
Maybe I should have posted 'The Weavers'?
With the 3 cent piece the 1881 appears the better grade and the darker toning makes it stand out better, but the black marks are a bit of a problem. While I think it is a slight upgrade I think I would have looked for a better upgrade coin.
My father played this song for me over the phone when he first heard we named her Irene. Too funny. I had never heard of the song.
I sold them to a CT member.
I listed them on the CT "For Sale" thread for all to see.
Maybe when the roses come out, I'll do like DQB and pick at the black spots with thorn
I will say if I find a 3cn I like better this will be replace.
