Finally My Icelandic Kingdom Era Set Is Complete
Entry posted by Iceman ·
I'm the most happiest coin collector in the world right now. I just received my submission results from NGC and was super happy with the out come of the coins I sent in. I only needed two coins to complete this set a 1942 1 Eyrir and a 1942 10 Aurar and both are very hard to find in a grade above 63 that is worthy of sending in. The 42 1 Eyrir is a very common coin but never seen one that would grade above a MS-63.... I had one that would grade higher then a MS-63 put was holding out for something better.... may be a nice red one... but having searched for 16 years now I just thought best to send in the one I have been holding on to for 8 years now ... it has a very nice dark blood red with some nice luster and toning to it that makes it a beautiful little coin.....And to my delight the graders thought the same thing they gave it a MS-67 Brown....WOW ...It nearly knocked me over.....The highest grade given to any Kingdom Era coin from Iceland......
The other one I needed was a 1942 10 Aurar that was make out of a Zinc alloy and any one that is aware of how difficult zinc coin can be to find in nice MS condition will know the searching involved to find one never mind the fact that this coin had a low mintage of 2 million would be very hard indeed. Well after another many years of looking I finally found one that was worth sending in...It has a small planchet flaw but very nice luster with very little dark wood grain running threw the coin itself. It came back a MS-63 Very Very happy with the grade ...There is one graded higher that is owned by my friend Siggi in Iceland. I had upgraded four more coins to my set A 1925 1 Krona to a MS-65..... A 1942 25 Aurar to a MS-63.... A 1923 10 Aurar to a MS-64 and addition to these coins I also found another 1933 25 Aurar that came back a MS-62 and also a 1925 2 Kronur came back a MS-62.
Well this is my happy day.....
