I have recently obtained a 2007 American Silver Eagle, it's the first of it's kind that I've owned however I'm familiar with them on a basic level. Before I get to the pictures, a little back story. My Grandmother JUST retired a few months ago at age 86 after working for the Littleton Coin Company for more than 50 years. When she started there they didn't even deal in coins, they were actually only dealing in stamps (Littleton Stamp) then they eventually brought coins on board and it became Littleton Stamp & Coin. Until at some point I THINK in the 80's or early 90's one of the Sundman brothers (I believe his name is Rick) split off and took the stamp portion of the company to New York state. The name of it escapes me at the moment. I also worked at LCC for a short period of time right after high school. They used to give out numismatic related gifts to employees yearly or for special events. When i was there it was the turn of the Millennium and we all got a Silver 1oz round with a special millennium design on it. Fast forward a bit to 2007 and the orginal founder of the company Maynard Sundman, who was a very nice guy that I met on a couple of occasions, passed away. Everyone in the company received one of these 2007 ASE coins in one of Littleton's Showpaks. The showpaks are a neat idea and look cool I guess and allows them to add some information but it's not a good way to store a coin. So this is what the coin looks like in the infamous showpak as I've received it from my Grandmother. She kept all of these items from LCC but has passed them on to me. There was no additional storage measures taken as far as I know. They were all in a jewelry box I believe (I got a handful of other coins as well) My grandmother is somewhere in that photo on the back. In any case, I removed the coin from the showpak carefully as to not damage the packaging as I intend to keep it. However I want to store the coin better going forward and I've now placed it in an "airtite" container. Here's what the coin looks like out of the showpak and before I put it in the air tite. So I just thought I'd share my little story of this coin and also show you how the coin faired in LCC's showpak. Obviously plenty of air got to it, I imagine the paper contributed to the colors of the toning? I don't know a whole lot about that to be honest. Also I think this has some milk spots as well? Again, that's new territory for me but particularly in the stars above the eagle, is that a milk spot? I welcome any and all comments and questions.
