Dollar picking has been a little slow for me recently. So I wandered out last weekend and this coin got my attention.
Here is my last OT pick, but please show me your last OT pick.
I'm sure lots of you have some cool coins to add to this thread

One of the more peculiar sets I'm working on is a Prime Number set. US, colonial, and world coins dated with prime numbers. I just picked these up for that set this week:

And I also picked this up for my World Coins in Early America set. Hell of a lot cheaper than any US gold dated 1804, I tell you what.

Very nice! You need to polish that slab, though.
