Re: OT please be careful guys

Wow..was wondering who of us would be the first. Glad to hear you got better. I'm only a year or two younger than you but I've had life long Athsma. Not sure how that would play into things if I get it. Praying I can avoid it until a vaccine or widely available cure is available. The hydroxycloroqui...

Re: Who else is growing a Quarantine Beard?...

I'm having a little trouble deciding tomorrow's outfit. What says humpday during a nation-wide quarantine 🤔

Any suggestions? :? :lol:

I'm going to forward the image to Leroy to see if he'll officially update the discovery date to September 22, 1891, and make the Acting Director Preston the discoverer of the variety.
That would be awesome. He should too! Haha

Re: Took my loupe to the VAM book

You think that's crazy. The other day I literally was holding a physical Morgan in one hand then with my other hand I went to pinch the surface of the coin to zoom in on an area! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Almost wasn't gonna tell anyone :oops: :lol:

Re: Looked off center, so took a shot on it

Very, very cool. I would love to get one and I'm a Peace Dollar guy. I wonder, do they get the RR rim as well? Thanks🐍 I might have a consolation Peace that's kinda up this alley, not quite an off-center but a MAD.. Here's the rub though, it's a severe MAD with missing design element! If I can dig ...

Re: OT... How are you gonna handle the next 2 weeks?

As a fellow CA guy I will say that would suck. My wife works at a retail grocery store. They are now called "front line" workers.. Thank God she doesn't check, usually. She says the panic is starting to die down. They are getting very limited amounts of stock. The crazies are staying home now. My b...

OT... Franklin CDLT... Cool or Meh?

Check this out guys. An incredibly crisp, clear & hammered partial "M" transfer on obv.. And I think I see a hint of the "B" as well. I've never even seen a CDLT Frankie let alone one so bold and hammered. So my questions are... How cool? How rare? And is there any premium or meh? Thanks! 😎 20200320...

Not rare but not common.

Re: OT... How are you gonna handle the next 2 weeks?

Welp my state, California, is on full shelter in place lockdown now. Can still go to grocery store, bank, gas etc but my guess is this (and all the other states that have done similar) is just a precursor to blunt the shock of full nation-wide martial law, no leaving your house at all, coming sat or...

Just barely still makes being a 36A. Noice. The trick is being able to photograph the weak E with clarity on this state.

Re: New Proposed Morgan/Peace Legislation...

Yeah, the "rendition" part made me cringe a tad too as I read it. My 1965 D Token Peace $ overstruck on genuine Peace $ by Dan Carr is a pretty good "rendition". Surely, one would hope, the US mint will endeavor to strike sharp, quality, accurate dollar coins! Yeah, I wouldn't count on it. But we c...

Hit, and more than once from the look of it
Thanks JR, in hand it was a different story but once I saw that second pic from the top I was heavily leaning that way but still figured I'd post. Thanks for the confirm!
