It's getting hard finding high grade coins, and especially UNC ones. This will do for now.

Another very nice coin. AU coins often are more attractive then some of their unc cousins.

Latest raw piece, SS Kg Edward V 1904 $1 to my collection. Photographing it was rather hard trying to capture its brilliance with my Olympus camera and macro lens.

Latest addition, a Kg Edward V 1908 1 cent raw specimen. BU condition.

 

Coin shows slight oxidation shades and marks from poor handling otherwise superb. Handling of bronze or copper coins are very crucial. One should not attempt to clean them especially the high grade to UNC coins, it will may only makes it worse.

I wonder what the record is for # of languages on a coin

 

That question is going to bother me until someone comes up with an answer. The most I can come up with off the top of my head is five on a technicality -- the Swiss franc is in Latin, and the 'Fr' abbreviation is correct in all four official languages. I suppose it's two languages, but one of them could be any of four.

 

The most I can think of off the top of my head is the British empire/commonwealth era Hong Kong dollar, with the obverse inscription in Latin, and the reverse in English and Chinese, but I have no expectation of that standing up. The Alabama SHQ also has three languages: English, Latin and Braille.

 

Meanwhile, these Straits coins just get better and better. I definitely want a Straits dollar in my collection now.

I'd like a few Straits coins in my collection too. I'm really liking those 1/2 cents.

SS Kg Edward 1903 Raised "B" Silver Dollar, slabbed AU58 by NGC 3258114-074 added. This makes room for me to release off one of my AU53 coin as I up grade my collection. Still on a look out for a MS slab piece.

 

Coin is excellent in BU conditions with high brilliance. If not for the wear off around the ear areas, it will make for a MS grade.

 

Denomination : 1 Dollar
Year : 1903
Variety : Raised "B"
Composition : Silver .900 fine
Mintage : Unknown (Included together the "Incuse B" totaling 15,009,891 pieces)
Graded : AU58 - Currently 12 pieces in record graded by NGC at AU58

Year : 1888
Composition : Silver .800 fine
