    I kind of lean toward the "dark side" of US coins myself. Only started collecting them within the last 7-8 years though so still have all of mine.

    Capped Busts are one of my favorites! 1807-1839 is a nice piece of history. I like this one quite a bit.

    This is probably my favorite. The most I ever spent on a Bust Half.

    Very old picture but I'm sure some of you know this one - it's on the very first page of the under $50 thread! I only have two Bust Halves and the other is just a more worn 1836.

    Paddy, at the risk of shattering a childhood dream your coin isn't the 12/1...it's a nice looking coin anyway.
    Here is the 12/1 "large 8"
