    An XF45 so not a high grade coin. But since these are of lower value, fewer tend to be graded (in this case 46 of them). I found this one out on eBay and it will be a nice addition to the collection.

    This is a bargain. I found a lost collection I purchased about 15 years ago and this is in it. I see there were several special sets, but this one had a special holder NOT from the mint.

    I needed a Capped Bust Quarter for my type set, and I thought the die cracks on this one were fascinating. Bought from Northern Nevada Coins, PCGS VF-35. 25-1836-Obv.JPG 25-1836-Rev.JPG

    This was ordered on December 19, so it only took 2 1/2 weeks to arrive.

    That's much better than my Lincoln matte proof, which was sent November 14 by registered mail, from 30 miles away, and has been listed as "In Transit, Arriving Late" ever since. That's frustrating because it is by far the most I ever spent on a coin, and now I don't have the money or the coin. I can't even buy a different one. :bigtears:

    I always wanted a coin that showed the details of the Flying Eagle cent in sharp detail. Well, this is not a coin, but it is much cheaper than what a real coin would be. It's a Dan Carr overstrike on an actual Flying Eagle. It works for me, but I am not a purist about these little metallic discs. It is just what I wanted, but better.

    2021’s first major purchase. First year of issue and a transitional year with the $5 gold Liberty.

    The white line above the 3 is just a thread of paper that I didn’t blow off before photographing.

    The 1910 proof is still lost in the mail, but this 1911 matte proof Lincoln arrived yesterday. PCGS graded it PR65BN.

    With a mintage of only 1733 coins, it is still priced less than the 1909-S VDB, with 484,000 minted. At the time Kevin Flynn's book Lincoln Cent Matte Proofs was published in 2009, he said only 488 had been graded. The fate of the others is unknown.

    With direct lighting, both sides are very, very blue. This photo can only hint at that, due to reflections off the plastic slab obliterating the coin image.
