New Acquisition Arrives!
I can't imagine a dealer requiring the above condition for change of ownership, but that was a transaction requirement when this coin last changed hands. The coin in question is a "holed" 1922 Peace Dollar with VF-35 details.
The offerer of the coin was my father, and my mother was the recipient, during their early dating years. Mom recently cleaned out a safe deposit box and sent me two coins; the 1922 and a more worn 1923-S dollar. Only the '22 comes with a story.
According to Mom, what Dad actually said was,"If we break-up, can I have my coin back?" Suave, romantic devil, isn't he? Now I know that I get my "cool" from him.
Mom also sent me their marriage license from 66 years ago, so I guess the transfer of ownership can be considered permanent.
Now the coin is in my hands, and I promise to "LOVE YOU BOTH".
God bless you, Mom and Dad!!!
