    Really nice with Arrows from New Orleans. Love Lib Seateds as it's a very historical issuance. Note that exact numbers are this important but my conservative guess is an EF-40.

    I meant to say "not that actual grade #'s are that important "

    I only ever had 1 with arrows half and it was a vg.

    Instead of my typical impulse buying on eBay/GC/HA I made a trip to a local dealer during my lunch break yesterday and came back happy.

    2007 1/2 oz Canadian gold Maple Leaf. Mintage 13,476...second lowest mintage (by 307 fewer pieces minted 2004) of the entire regularly minted Maple Leaf denominations. Obverse lines across Elizabeth are not visible to the eye or magnification so evidently on the exterior packaging. This piece being .9999 fine of extremely soft purest gold (Maples are very susceptible to severe scratches with the lightest to usual handling) still factory double wrapped and sealed. BTW purchase is from APMEX 2007 Can maple rev.JPG 2007 Can maple obv.JPG

    Interesting that the 1/2 oz. coin is denominated $20 while the 1 oz. Maple Leaf is denominated $50.

    Yup. Why not $25 who knows. Maybe the same rationale that the current China gold Panda coins previously known as 1 oz are now designated in grams (30 gram, 15 gram....) which slightly short changes them a hair's breath from a previously full ounce. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Gold_Maple_Leaf

    C50c 1935-S San Diego MS66 PCGS Trueview 37450079.jpg
    Really common commemorative half, 1935-S MS66 PCGS, but one I paid stupid money for because it was the most beautiful one in this grade I've ever seen.

    C50c 1920 Pilgrim MS66 PCGS Trueview 36784007.jpg
    And another MS66 PCGS, the 1920 Pilgrim.

    Upgraded my 93-S and added an 01-P from a local show yesterday.
    Yes the 01 is cleaned but there’s a good bit of meat left on the bone and some nice color on the obverse. Also, the price was right.
