  1. These are fantastic medals. How did I not see this post earlier!
  2. Well this is fantastic. Can you tell us more about it? Do you have a collection of these? Welcome to CoinPeople!
  3. Welcome to the forum! That's a fantastic find! I hope YeOldeCollector will chime in. He's knowledgable about these sort of coins.
  4. Hmm... How do you know it is gold? Looks suspicious to me.
  5. I'm conflicted. I have several series I've been working on for a decade (or two???) now because 1) I don't get to go to shops or shows more than once a year and 2) I like the hunt. I know I could find all of the coins I want online, but I like searching the tables and the shops for that perfect one. Not "perfect" as in MS-70, but... "the one". Anywho, it's frustrating at times because I won't make any progress towards completing them. But I don't want to buy overpriced slabs from Heritage.
  6. Very cool! It'd be nice if the organization got out of politics and kept with old traditions like these!
  7. Very nice, Steve. Did you buy it online? Fantastic toning. I can only imagine how she looks in hand.
  8. September 8, 2018 - the Vermont Sesquicentennial half dollar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermont_Sesquicentennial_half_dollar What a gorgeous coin. Look at that high relief! I even love the fields - reminds me of the fields of a buffalo nickel. I doubt anyone here has this coin, but I sure want one after seeing it! Not sure I've ever seen it before.
  9. As I understand it, back in the day when coins were valued for their precious metal content AND goods could be bought with coins, snipping off fractions of coins was a way to make change!
  10. That's incredible, Steve. You're a very lucky man.
  11. Beautiful. Look at the delicate work in the field.
  12. Where's YeOldeCollector when we need him!
