    1901 10c MS64 Reverse 2 (thin ribbon). I was on a binge for a year and a half obtaining the "less common" transition varieties of Barber dimes. There are 21 combinations 1899-1905 and 11 are less common or scarce. You might notice the die clash through TES and a bit above her head.

    I think it was just dumb luck. I had a higher bid and I didn’t expect to win it.

    Repunched letters O over F on the reverse of that quarter. Always liked those.

    This Seated Liberty half dollar wraps up the half dollar page of the Type Set. While I paid near the price guide, I still feel I got a steal because of its condition, sharp strike, and gentle toning.

    This coin is not graded, but matches up well with photos of slabbed AU58’s. Although, at this point it’s an album coin, and all that’s irrelevant.

    Feel free to expand these images for a much closer look.

    Here's how that finished page looks in the album. I flipped over three of them so I could appreciate the design changes on the reverse - no design elements over the eagle, rays around the eagle, and the motto in the banner over the eagle. I am especially fond of that banner, but I couldn’t tell you why that is.

    The Barber, Franklin, and Kennedies are proofs.

    I just have two holes left in the album, on the dollar coin page. They may take a while to find.

    NEW ADDITION TO MY THREE CENT COIN COLLECTION. I purchased a Intercept Box to house these slabbed coins.

    Taking good pictures of brilliant proof coins is a challenge, add in shooting through the slab and it is almost impossible with my admittedly crude set up. Polish_20200930_193217941.jpg

    It most certainly is a challenge, especially with what I call what you have there the wet look proofs!
    Later 50's early 60's seems to have the wet look ,as to other dates that show frosty devices.

    I just filled a couple of slots of my NGC 7070 set. The two coins couldn't be more different... rusty copper vs rainbow silver, MS vs PRF, PCGS vs NGC... you get the idea…!?

    Congratulations, @micbraun

    Both coins are a joy to behold.
    The Large Cent is in excellent shape and should be in a NGC low MS holder.

    The Washington quarter resides in an PCGS Proof 68 holder?!
