I really like this coin, Mike. I still need one. I got a AU58 once but returned it because it had cleaning compound gunk embedded around the devices/lettering and retoned. NGC slabbed it but I have no idea why.

Nice coin, Paul! I definitely need to upgrade my FE at some point. It is just XF, but original.

Thanks Victor, thumbsup2.gif Always good coming from a fellow type collector. headbang.gif

 

I've seen a few good looking FE cents in MS63 slabs around since I bought mine, so they are out there. Prices were about $600 and I've seen MS64s for around $1200. 893scratchchin-thumb.gif

Thanks for the info, Pablo. thumbsup2.gif

 

p.s. Tom, I quite agree!

 

p.p.s. I just ordered a PR63 1915 Barber quarter from Pinnacle Rarities to replace/substitute the 1892 PR64Cameo that I've seemed to have lost or misplaced.

 

Will post images later. I hope that it's a keeper.

Can't wait to see what it looks like.

Hey, Lee, it looks like Ms Liberty got into a fight with that shiner she has! wink.gif Here's another 1857 copper, but the coin is nicer than my initial attempts to image it.

You should see the other gal. wink.gif A very definative marker for this one. smile.gif

That's a nice little coin, RGT. Here's another. The slab is scuffed, which makes the coin look mushy when in reality it is not.

My 1857 is graded MS64 by NGC, which I think is correct.

 

Tom, I still need that one for my set. I notice a lot of these have a weak strike at the base of the shield and the upper left of the wreath. Looking for well struck ones keeps me closer to staying in my budget. grin.gif

 

Here's my 1872-S. Not the mostly lovely coin, but original.

Nice one Bruce thumbsup2.gif Do you know why the coin is toning more near the rim? I always assumed that coins that had this look toned more on the edges because the edges were nearest the edge of the album/folder/mint set. So I don't know why the napkin coin is doing that confused-smiley-013.gif
