Wow, that's so cool. I wasn't aware of that. Just know that the price was good in my opinion, and later on when I checked the mintage rates on my phone, I was happy to discover that it was not some large amount like 700,000+. So I'm happy. But knowing that this was the first Denver makes it even cooler now.
Yep, that was the first year anything was struck at the Denver mint.
Nice! Looks like MS to me. I try to get my pre-1933 at lower premiums in general, but as a result it's been a long time since I've bought any...
Some 'bagginess' but I ain't seeing any 'wear'........'62 in my opine.
It does have quite a lot of luster. I just figured it was a really nice AU, but I don't have much experience with vintage gold. Most of my gold is modern bullion, so I figured I'd be conservative on my estimate of grade. Better to underestimate the grade than overestimate when trying to decide to buy a coin I know I don't have the requisite knowledge to properly grade.
an XF 45 and A/U 50, still has some good luster and the reverse is in great shape
with no distractions however the obverse has allot of distractions on the face. pitting
and scratching along the sides as well.
Here's the best images I can get through a quadrum holder using my cheap phone camera. You really think it's XF-45? I wouldn't disagree with AU-50, but XF-45 seems a little low even to me who doesn't know much about these coins. Either way, I'm still trilled with an XF coin. This is bullion investing after all. I'm not a numismatist, so XF on a pre-1933 would be more than acceptable grade.
I put it in a quadrum to take it down to my safety deposit box at the bank today, but Hurricane Ian got in the way. We are all shut down due to inclement weather (borderline tropical storm winds where I'm at with a risk of tornadoes and flash flooding)
