    Just upgraded my 1890 Indian cent error coin from a broadstruck (VG8)
    1890BS ob.jpg 1890BS re.jpg

    to a 15% off center (G4).

    I like the condition of the broadstruck, but the off centers are much rarer, so I'll let go of the broadstruck one. I now have a string of 8 years of off centers and will post them in a thread sometime soon!

    I have had this for a few weeks now but have been busy with my mothers birthday, my birthday and spending time with my dad so I havent had time to share much less post much.

    I fell in love with this one mainly for the portrait and being from the early period along with the better legend type.

    What looks like a flan crack is actually a meandering line from stress.

    I've said before, I am a sucker for old US coins.;) Saw her under the glass and could have sworn she was calling my name. Cost me a pretty penny, but it was my birthday and I couldn't pass up the price for the condition!

    1911 Matte Proof Lincoln (PCGS PR65BN CAC). I had some additional photos made of one of my 1911 Matte Proof Lincolns by Phil Arnold at PCGS TrueView, and wow, what a tremendous job he did.

    I just got these recently. Could someone tell me how to rotate the photos? I have an IPad and I cannot figure out why they upload sideways. Thanks!

    I was looking at some close up photos of this PCGS AU58 1886 Indian Cent this morning, and was blown away by the elevation chromatics. I just had to share this. The color appears to "flow" into the low spots of the design like rivers through mountains. And in the deeper areas of the design, the color goes purple (in the inner ear, for example) -- like purple lakes.

    Just picked this off the internet...a monster toned 1965 SMS Lincoln Cent (still in cello). While the reverse is relatively red, the obverse sports deep blue and purple shades, along with a razor thin rainbow showing along the rim. The only downside is the carbon spots that are relatively obvious on the reverse. While monster lincoln proofs were known to exist during the early '60s (60-64), the amount of toners abruptly drop off in the SMS years.
