Yesterday I took the day off and visited my (not so local) coin shop. My first task is always going through their foreign "junk" bin, and while they had recently sold a lot of their inventory and didn't have as much to look through as I'm used to, I found some good stuff. Particularly notable was that they had clearly purchased a lot of coins from the same person. All of them were from the mid-1940s and in gorgeous condition, uncirculated looking, most having a shine to them. I tried to take some cellphone pictures that would capture the luster. Some were more successful than others. But here's the group. These were all 15 cents apiece, btw. Oh, the Seychelles coin was from a different section but only cost me 50 cents.
