    Took some fight, but I prevailed. Had to have this one.

    It checks off the three main criteria I was after:

    (1) Straight-graded.
    (2) 1700s-dated.
    (3) CircCam contrast and nice eye appeal.

    This is now the most expensive coin I have owned in 46 years of collecting.

    It is also my first US silver from the 1700s. (I have owned several coppers.)

    I’ve owned at least a half-dozen clunker cars that didn’t cost as much as this coin.

    Exceptional! Definitely more costly than my vehicle at the moment.

    These are three hard-to-hit criterion for coins of this age, it appears.
    You saw your chance and took it. You have a lot to be proud of for this one!
