.....ER- did you find it in change?? 893whatthe.gif

 

Yep, and I was thrilled. grin.gif

 

Guys, your designation was close, but it was really Downtown Mall Parking Lot. 27_laughing.gif

 

Dallas was just a guess because Texas is so small that all the cities are close to one another.

I went to the local show today and went a little crazy on the mexican! I really couldn't help it, they were really pretty and oh so cheap!

 

The first are some classic pesos from 1938 and 1943, then a 1956 5-peso Hidalgo, then a couple 1968 Olympic 25-pesos (one is Prooflike) then two 1-ounce silver rounds dated 1985 commemorating two of the most famous Mexican designs. In total these coins contain 4.23 ounces of pure silver and I paid $41.50 for all of them!

'Tis a shame about the hole. Otherwise it has tremendous eye-appeal. You should get it filled and retoned. I see nothing wrong with that at all.

 

Just like I saw nothing wrong with Hoot getting his 1804 cent tooled and restored. Afterall, it is all about the collector's taste. Downside is that it opens the door down the road for unscrupulous sellers.

 

But, Bruce, you're unscrupulous anyway so you have absolutely nothing to loose. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif You all know that's not true!!

 

p.s. Hoot, how about an update on the toning of your 1804 cent? thumbsup2.gif

I am going to have it plugged soon I hope.... then store it away for some time and let it get nice and dark... more original looking .. at least whoever made the hole did it in a not so bad spot if there can be one...

Are you going to tell everyone that when you list it on eBay? They'll probably believe you.

Jeff have you ever got a Lower rings 1968 Olympic Coin? Those are neat to have if you ask me. Great coins from Mexico.

 

This is a new one for me. Is it easier to discern the "lower rings" by the spacing from the rim or the spacing from the foot (above)?

Aha, now we know CT's "MO". thumbsup2.gif

 

18 pages! I've noticed that this thread sometimes takes a little while to load. Are we bogging down the system, Arch? What is the record for the most pages with pics? What is the record for the most pics in one thread? Should we submit this to Guinness?

I've been watching all the beautiful coins on this post. Here is most of my May purchases. This fits the recent advice "collect what you like within your budget". I'll increase my budget when I learn to grade better. Folks on this board have been great help, especially Supertooth. His tips are the reason you see some better coins in this group. An assortment from coin dealer, ebay, antique shop, and local auction. One of the better ones was actually below silver and a few I paid a little too much.

Here is a photo.... The middle ring is lower on the right side, also known as lower rings.

I never heard of "lower rings" designation for that 25 pesos before, so this made me go check the ones I have. 1 low , 2 high! Thanks for an interesting tidbit! smile.gif
