  1. Very cool! It'd be nice if the organization got out of politics and kept with old traditions like these!
  2. Very nice, Steve. Did you buy it online? Fantastic toning. I can only imagine how she looks in hand.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. That's incredible, Steve. You're a very lucky man.
  6. Beautiful. Look at the delicate work in the field.
  7. Where's YeOldeCollector when we need him!
  8. Oh my my my my... This forum hasn't seen a post like this in ages. Thank you so much for the pics and the story. Please keep sharing!! I haven't been to a real coin show in forever. My favorite one (the only real one I've ever been to) is the Whitman Coin Show in Baltimore. Three times a year and I've been busy each of those weekends for the last few years. It truly brings a tear to my eye. I wish I could find another show that could stand in for that show...
  9. Fantastic shot!! Show us more!!

  11. Man, this makes me really excited to get my collection cleaned up a bit.
  12. Without holding it in hand, I can't tell. Maybe someone with a better eye can help!
  13. Hey, are you able to show us the obverse and reverse? Thanks!
  14. Great questions. I can't help you, sadly, but I love the medal.
