I see you won't be getting your 30 day chip. ;-)

You must put a big smile on Harlans' face whenever you walk in.

This is a difficult issue to get in good condition. I've been looking for one for years. Though this coin is not up to my usual standards, it is quite nice for the type and is blazingly lustrous which the picture doesn't capture. I did enjoy seeing Harlan's collection of 17th century Flemish oil paintings. -c
