When That SPECIAL Coin Will Pop Up!!!
I'm so excited that I can hardly sit still in front of the keyboard!
Earlier this week, I called a favorite dealer about a couple of coins on his website. As we were talking, I casually asked about any new additions he might have to his Half Dime inventory.
He paused for a second, and than said, "Do you need an 1853-0 N/A in AU?
HELL YES, YOU GOT ONE?! (I yelled to myself)
"I'd be interested." I calmly said to him.
"We just got it, so it hasn't been priced or inventoried yet, but I'll give you first shot when it's ready."
"Sounds good." I said, still trying to sound calm.
Today he called me about another coin, and I asked when the 1853-O might be for sale. "Let me check." he said, and I'll call you back.
30 minutes later the phone rang:
-"Here's the price. Would you like it, today?"
I wasn't feigning calm anymore.
He E-mailed images, and I've been drooling on the monitor for a few hours, now.
The coin will ship on Monday, and I can't wait. I'm building a complete set of the Seated Liberty Half Dimes, but in my searching, I've seen only one AU of this issue (and I didn't like it). I maintain an annual list of my 15 most wanted coins, but this one is so seldom seen that I didn't put it on the list!!
I can't wait until "FedEx Knocks", but I'll have to be content for now with one more peek at the image.
What is it about a "little metal disc" that can get me so excited?!
