Congratulatons on winning a wonderful coin! I previewed this coin in person and it

is indeed a Mint State coin. The luster looks like that from an uncirculated mercury

dime. Enjoy!

Thanks, Mike. Ed said it was nice, but your assessment puts the exclamation point on his report.

Superb. Almost bid on it myself. You got it for a very nice price. I thought it would have surely gone for closer to estimate.


The obv die is identical to other coin I am looking at bidding on. I am guessing it comes from the same hoard.

Hi M,


Yes, I was pleased, and a little surprised, at the price. I appreciate your not running the price up on me. I think there was a hoard about 10 years ago with a number of these in good condition, though Ed said he had seen almost all of them and this one might be the best. Obviously there is a lot of subjectivity in a statement like that, but Ed has a good eye and phenomenal memory, so I wouldn't be surprised to learn this is an above average example of the type. I have been trying to get a good one ever since I first noticed the hoard appearing on the market.
