    Nice coin. It reminds me of this one in my collection.

    I'm not sure about yours but mine is common, just not in this grade.

    What grade is this one? I just submitted a really nice 1754 example.

    Cool buy! Certainly not something you see every day!

    It's MS63. I purchased it from Karl Stephens at the WFOM the last time it was in Anaheim. I only got it because I had never seen one in mint state before. It was an inexpensive purchase.

    It's a cool piece and neat you can see the curve from being struck on a roller die. They are very small coins!!

    I only bought this one for the color. It’s nice to see stable color after a 300+ years.

    Beautiful. I love these older uniface coins! I own several from the German States.

    What makes you think the color is stable or 300 years old? It could have been toned a day before it was submitted to PCGS. It could be completely unstable and will change in a week.

    Time will tell. Same goes for any toned coin.
