I'm going to keep it. It's grown on me.
Good for you.
If it was my coin, I would have taken the money that was offered.
That's not entirely accurate as the condition does play some role and date/mm that aren't known for toning will be very sought after if they do. But yes the right toning drives the price for the most part
My post was in response to the coin in the OP and that toning was the sole reason he received such a high offer. Are you saying that the comment wasn't entirely accurate because a 41D Lincoln in that condition has significant value beyond the toning?
What is IG?
I have to agree with @Mr.Q you can buy a nice slab and put it in that.
I've done that my self.
You can find them on eBay
@robec are you out there?
I just bought the NGC graded 1937 from the small group of coins in your IG link. This coin was a part of a group of 400 Lincoln’s that had been individually paper wrapped 60 years ago.
This group was purchased by Jeff (coppercolor on the IG and PCGS forums).
He is one of the trailblazers in toned copper, particularly Lincoln’s.
Several examples populate NGC and PCGS slabs and Registries. There were a few different dates and mints involved, 1937, 1940 and 1940-S to name a few.
Here is an IG video showing Jeff unwrap a few of these.
For the record concerning the 1941-D from the OP, I lean toward NT. But if I were offered $700 the coin would be gone. 1941 was a great year for both strike and colorful examples.
Here are examples from Jeff’s small hoard of paper wrapped Lincoln’s.
Both are graded 65BN.
This is my most recent example, just got it back from PCGS today.
That was a silly AT grade
Yes, yes it was, and it cost me an extra $25 that it shouldn't have. That said, I think it will sell quicker in PCGS plastic.
