We are back. Storm was pretty intense last night and the winds are still clocking above 50mph.

Re: SSDC is down

Power must have gone down while I was sleeping, long enough for the UPS to run down. Checked and my other servers are also down. Will go get them booted up in a few.

Re: ANACS and NGC San Francisco Long Nock Sets

Wow. The 60 and 72 are tough ones. Never found either in the wild.

And I though that I had OCD in my collecting habits. LOL

It does not appear listed, but if it is, I would throw it into the submission. Familiar to anyone? There is also a small crack out o...

Re: Some stout prices on GC last night

The 92-O is exception in the strike indeed. The breast feathers in UNCs are even typically flat and the ear doubling easily missed. Much identifiable rub on that coin. It is a nice slider.

Work continues on my 1900-S die study and one other topic.
Find the 3A before I do. I think it is a single altered coin, but is out there. I have looked for it for decades.

Re: Free imaging?

Sent in an early dollar for the special at the last minute, mainly to get the holder attribution (BB-112). Probably should have gone for a regrade. AU53 holder but has valid claims to a step up to AU55. Maybe CAC it instead.

Re: Some stout prices on GC last night

On a lark, I looked at GC's Morgans for that sale and was VERY tempted to go on a bidding for a bunch of them, but held back and refused to let myself near the auction. Figured you guys would get in there and get some good ones and probably a number of bargains. Short of a VAM-215 or an 1895 busines...

Re: 1899-O near date

Note that a lot of arguably near dates, especially in the original book listings, are listed as normal. Unless the front of the 1 bottom enters the denticle space, they have been often listed as normal.
