I bet we're the only 2 crazy (hardcore) enough to have broken sword pocket Peace's chief!
@Cascade , I have the broken sword too, but can't bring myself to put it in my pocket.
More to come.
A gorgeous, O/S Half Cent.
Don't get me wrong I do like all the new cent items, he has done a fantastic job with those.
Moonlight Mint Image.
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.
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.
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.
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...........
I was wondering where you were. Glad you could order some of Dan’s new coins. Hope you have a speedy recovery. TC
