  1. I have to say it's really odd (to me) that you're seeing these on proof coins. Proof coins use cleaner, crisper dies that wouldn't have these problems. But there's always the possibility that you are seeing an older die before it's replaced with a newer one.
  2. Hey! Welcome to Coinpeople! I'm no expert, but the first looks like it could be a partially filled die (but that would be very surprising on a proof strike!). The second looks like an older die where the details are fading. Again, that shouldn't be as much of an issue on a proof coin.

    Sweet looking Ike.
  4. oooh. I haven't seen foreign notes posted here in a while.
  5. That is beautiful but looks too beautiful. Could it be counterfeit?
  6. Wow! I always love finding old nickels in change. It's been way too long.
  7. It also looks like it has been heavily cleaned. That coin isn't worth much, even if it is real.
  8. Stellar! To think 1883 was considered old to 1933 and here we are in 2019.
  9. Most likely fake. I'm not an expert but that would be a very rare coin in very nice condition. You have a better chance of catching a unicorn than stumbling upon one of those that hasn't already been graded.
  10. Welcome! I personally don't know much about non-American coins but I know plenty of people here may be able to help.
  11. I can't answer your question but I'm sure someone can. I also can't see the face!
  12. I used to live a short distance from DLRC. I attempted to go to their store once but I don't think they allow drop-ins. I also used to live very, very close to another dealer. I forget the name but it was one of the dealers that advertised very prominently on many different pages in Coinage and CoinWorld magazines. On the back cover. Also wasn't allowed to drop in. Boo.
  13. Hmmm... I can't quite tell what you're talking about.
  14. Beautiful. The "polishing" is part of the story. I love that this hobby appreciates wear and original patinas and toning.
  15. Beautiful!! What do you mean sample or first world sample?
  16. This is exciting! I don't collect medals but I am very curious to follow along your progress and see what you choose
