I like coins better when they look nicer than their grade. I got that one to go along with this AU58 half that was already one of my favorite silver coins 🌞

AU-58?  I defy anyone to show me exactly where the touch of wear is on this incredibly beautiful old gem -- with no discernible signs of mischief on its pristine surfaces!  🤔

I never knew numismatists were allowed to look at women like that!  And that's a Boulder she was sitting on! If anything, I can definitely see where citing these areas would militate in a buyer's favor in determining a proper grade and negotiating a fair [market value] price. You've done very well, Mr. Spud!

Thanks! Got it from one of the mints when my father was treasurer for one of the heirs of Alexander's empire (and his famous Ragtime Band).

Not the auctioneer that handled the estate sale? Or the estate lawyer? I stand amazed.
