    I can't stop thinking about this pretty gal. In fact, she's about to become my new profile pic.

    This,my uncle as a boy in the 60's did what any thirsty kid would do.Go to the coke machine and get something to drink.Back then it only cost a dime and that's what he put in.What he got back as change was this decent 1915 buffalo nickel.It got him hooked the rest is history.It was one of the coins as my birthday gift a few years ago.I can imagine myself in the same situation in my own way every time I look at it. 20210925_212832.jpg 20210925_212853.jpg

    I have many, many coins that make me happy. I have coins that are incredibly rare, incredibly beautiful, incredibly expensive, or have a great story that goes with them.

    But, of all those, this is probably one of my favorite coins in my collection. It is just simply perfect in terms of eye appeal. There are *very* few Bust Halves that can compete.

    If you want to see more of my top 10, just ask ;)

    I have made several friends during my collecting journey, but there is one particular person that I have become close with and has become a mentor to me. He was gracious enough to give this to me from his own collection and it means a lot to me.

    I got a lot, about 150, of 1909 VDB cents in a cigar box that I won in an auction today. Half way through them I found this guy:

  18. This coin got me into the hobby!
    The 1943 Coin was one of the reprocessed crap, I thought that coin was gonna be sold for at least $30.000.
    I remember watching a YouTube video that said if your 1943 looks bluish, it is worthless.
    Oh, it was supposed to be a happy story!
