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.
