  1. 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.
  2. Hmmm... I can't quite tell what you're talking about.
  3. Beautiful. The "polishing" is part of the story. I love that this hobby appreciates wear and original patinas and toning.
  4. Beautiful!! What do you mean sample or first world sample?
  5. This is exciting! I don't collect medals but I am very curious to follow along your progress and see what you choose
  6. Well, I don't know what to think of that legend.
  7. Very nice. Any reason you're posting all the Davos medals now?
  8. Huh. The history book (!) and coinage suggests it was a two year party!
  9. And on January 9, 2019, one of my favorite coin series: Walking Liberty Half Dollar I believe my earliest proof coin is a 1941 Walking Lib!
  10. I'm running a little behind on this. Here are two recent Featured Articles: From December 4, 2018: Kalākaua coinage A set of silver coins of the Kingdom of Hawaii dated 1883, authorized to boost Hawaiian pride by giving the kingdom its own money. They were designed by Charles E. Barber, Chief Engraver of the United States Bureau of the Mint, and were struck at the San Francisco Mint. The issued coins are a dime (ten-cent piece), quarter dollar, half dollar, and dollar. Gorgeous coins. I don't have any. I am a big fan of Barber's designs though.
  11. These must've been worth more than your typical $1 chip.
  12. Hey, welcome! Have you found a coin club or coin show nearby?
