  1. I've added a few recently and have a few more to add. Just need the time.
  2. Twilight Zone .......
  3. I'd like to take a trip through your old storage. WOW! My collection would be very happy with those.
  4. I'm still wondering if it was an accidental break or a die "cancellation" and then the die was reused. The line is very straight across the face for it to be accidental. There's nothing the spans the die in the area that would seem to cause an undue weakness in one part vs another.
  5. Nice 2065 Jefferson Alan. You're a bit ahead of your time.
  6. That's strange. I guess if you make enough of them it could be profitable but...where would you get rid of the quantity that would make you a profit, especially back in the 70's.
  7. Both very nice buys. Must be a good coin shop that you visit.
  8. Nice article Alan. I have to agree that "SAMPLE" or not is in the eye of the purchaser. The luncheon type slabs have become quite hard to find and are getting more expensive monthly, that tells me that there are more and more collectors of slabs. I have a friend who has two of the State Quarter slabs from the luncheon. He got the first at the luncheon and the second for $5.00 from a friend who had been at the same luncheon and had not interest in this "specialty slab". Times change many things. Keep enjoying your collecting and have fun writing your articles. (PS. I'm supposed to attend two luncheons at FUN this coming January and both would typically produce "luncheon" slabs. I'll let you know what happens.
  9. I find the upper left image the most appealing. It's amazing the difference lighting makes in a subject so simple as a coin.
  10. Gotta love a PR69DCAM Jefferson. Dang they're attractive coins.
  11. Thank you. I have a nice slot in my Dansco just waiting for it.
  12. I think steelies are particularly difficult to grade. There have been so many resurfacing and replating projects that it can be quite difficult to tell at first glance. High quality circulated coins can easily be made to appear to be MS.
  13. 1943 Steelie -- one of my favorite Lincoln Cents
  14. Nice coin. Can't tell from the pic but are the indentations actually in the side of the coin or just the rim design?
  15. Very nice albums. That was a great purchase.
  16. Here are a few older Jeffersons that I put up on Omnicoin today.
  17. So you're going to build a typeset 1900 to present. That's a great collection. Many of the coins will be easily acquired in decent grades. I wish you the best of luck with it and hope that you'll stick around and let us know how you're doing. You might consider going back through the last few Popular Coin Idol threads (PCIxxxx, etc) You'll get a look at some really great looking coins there.
  18. Nice find. It is a shame about the gouge but it's still a great find.
  19. And another nice one.
  20. Here's one of the Jefferson photos that I added to my Registry Sets today.
