New pics of some juicy oldps from 2013

1853 Bavaria 2 Gulden - extremely attractive crown-sized piece. It's a bit too modern for me, but it's very attractive in hand.




1821-Mo JJ Mexico Real - very lightly toned and flashy. Great eye appeal. I don't do New World stuff normally, but this was a relatively cheap piece that got me past a dry spell. :)


(The image's shading and shadows are off relative to how the coin actually looks -- but since Greg does these for free for me and he was horribly busy at the time and I was harassing him incessantly, I guess I shouldn't complain about the sub-optimal product.)




1628-HI Saxony 1/4 Taler - light gray toning. Decent eye appeal. The image shadows are off too, and the reverse is upside-down. (This reminds me of a recent story from him, of someone not knowing reverse from obverse and how to orient that side. Now I can add him as a subject in that story. :) )




1612 Casale Tallero, Dav-3870. This piece is conditionally rare in UNC. This is the sole coin where Greg's image makes the coin look nicer than in hand. Thanks, Greg. Don't quit your day job. :) BTW, both he and I think this coin is too conservatively graded (by a point).
