Recently back from PCGS if that counts. Graded MS62! Been looking out for one of these for awhile now and a nice raw one finally came along.

LOVE that reverse design. These are very hard to find nice, so you got a nice one there! Congrats!
very difficult). The reverse pictures Saul (Saint Paul) on horseback at the time of his conversion to Christianity. Not a rare coin at all, but difficult to find already slabbed for a reasonable price.
Sure enough, the package reappeared in a different region, and eventually made it back to me. Very happy to have the coin at last.
Looks like he is playing the air guitar on horseback.serious skills!

Of course when you do horse trade Rob always throws in a little extra.
My extras an 1939 dime ,as well a 1941 Newfoundland dime.
No doupt all have been dipped at one time..like half dimes you find have been dipped to remove heavy tone and sometimes the luster.
