I'm sure you'll soon have lots and lots of company, if not on your block, then among collectors of modern coins.

It's interesting to note that the 2023s have a round top "3", whereas Silver Eagles of 1993, 2003, and 2013 all have flat top "3"s.

 

I noticed that Sandon. I got a terrific price on this early production coin.

Are those anything like the flat top engines they used to put in hot rods?

Interesting that the reverse label includes a blurb about what the "First Strike" means.

Huh, that's the first time I've noticed that on the back of PCGS slabs. I wonder if that is a recent addition? Probably not. (shrug)

Well I sure wasn’t expecting coin #1!  A nice perfect coin.

There were previously questions about what coins qualified for that "First Strike" designation, which was buried a little.

Nice Mr. B. :golfclap:

Not your first rodeo, if graded ASE's are your thing no problemo. They are just not mine, anymore. Good luck my friend, you have been given good advice here and ATS, collect what you like. (thumbsu

Same here. I quit buying graded bullion. Very happy for the ones who do though. Ive bout quit buying it altogether. I may go for the proofs from the mint if I do get any.  I dont see anothing wrong at all for the ones who do. I just found other areas in the hobby Im more interested in. I can use that money to focus on them instead. Very nice pickup Mr. Bill !!!
