    @Cascade , I have the broken sword too, but can't bring myself to put it in my pocket.

    Thanks I just ordered an OWL....I must say they are a hard habit to break.
    Don't get me wrong I do like all the new cent items, he has done a fantastic job with those.

    But the half cent portrait is different from that. Dan used the large cent head rather than a true half cent design. Also, he used the lettering style of the large cent on the reverse. :eek:

    This is true. But if the US Mint had actually produced a half cent in 1858 there is no technical reason that it couldn't have had the (superior) large cent Braided Hair head that year (or any other year).

    Also, taking a larger design and reducing it in size helps the apparent sharpness of the image.

    Superior in your opinion. But honest question, did you attempt or consider a true-to-form braided hair half cent design?

    And that makes it "superior" ;)

    I considered it.

    What's with the qualms. It's an O/S
    I hope he continues this series of O/S.
    Call it a sub section of DC. It doesn't mean you have to buy one.

    Been down since May 8 due to back surgery but did manage to get up long enough to order some of Dan's new stuff. Also got a submission at ANACS.

    I read every day just don't post much bc it hurts to sit for more than 10 minutes at a time. Time to lie down...........:(
     
  16. I was wondering where you were. Glad you could order some of Dan’s new coins. Hope you have a speedy recovery. TC

    I couldn't pass it up, it was the first coin I saw in his case, I was so excited to get the piece, that I left my eye piece at his table. I have so much thanks to the nice Lady that found me and gave it back! Thank you.
