1950-D Jefferson nickel

Nothing spectacular, but I really like that original mother-of-pearl effect that some nickels acquire:

1878 half-dime

Popped out of a PCI MS-63 holder - in my opinion cleaned and probably retoned, but neat.

1829 Capped Bust half

Popped out of an old ANACS holder - my favorite recent purchase. Appears semi-prooflike in hand, and the images don't begin to tell how gorgeous this coin is. Truly a stunner - I plan on keeping this one for a long time!

1973-S Eisenhower dollar

Wild looking coin, had to be stored improperly to look like this. Tough to decide whether I actually like this one or not - what do you guys think?

1704-BB French 5-sols (Gadoury-108)

Totally awesome coin in my opinion. Incredibly original, and just a delight to behold.

Great coins. I also think the Jeff nickel is superb - very pretty and a great strike for a 50-D. And the Ike is great - that's a keeper. The toning on the other coins is very pretty, and I especially like the bust half. Sweet!

We noticed and made the general remarks! makepoint.gif We simply don't have the trained eye of an aficionado, as yourself. wink.gif After all, if you tie your tie too long, it ends up being your noose. angel.gif
