  1. They don't look like they have been cleaned when seen in hand. My Samsung cellphone which I use to take these pictures tends to over process and ends up washing out the color. Both of the nickels have light toning which doesn't show, and the half dollar isn't nearly as blast white as it shows in the picture. The biggest example is the large cent which would be classified as a red/brown. Most of the center area is still copper colored while the outer edges have toned to brown. That didn't come out in the picture beyond just a small difference in tint. I'm going to have to do some research into how to tweak my phone camera to try and get more fidelity in the picture.
  2. Picked up 6 of the latest Egyptian Gods series rounds from Provident. Sekhmet 2 oz.
  3. Went to one of the LCS' near my home today and bought a few coins for my U.S. Type Set. 1853 Braided Hair Large Cent, 1889 Liberty Nickel, 1839 Capped Bust Half Dollar reeded edge, and a 1906 Proof Liberty Nickel. The proof isn't going into my type set album. I just bought it because I liked it and I don't have any proof coins anywhere near that old.
  4. Well, I've been somewhat distracted the last couple weeks with completing details for starting construction of a new home in the next 2-3 weeks, so I forgot this series was starting. Missed the boat on some of the issues, but did manage to order the 1 oz silver 10 coin series today.
  5. Picked up a nice chunky piece of gold on Saturday, and the proof set arrived Monday.
  6. Some purchases from the last couple of weeks. Took advantage of the dip to buy some gold, and purchased some coins for my U.S. Type Set. 1834 Classic Head Half Cent, 1851 Braided Hair Large Cent, 1909 VDB Lincoln Cent, 1851 Silver 3 Cent Type 1, 1873 Nickel 3 Cent, 1875-S Seated Liberty Twenty Cent, and an 1855-O Seated Liberty Half Dollar with Arrows.
  7. Haven't been on in a while. I have been travelling out of state quite a bit looking for property to buy and build a house on. Got that taken care of, so here are a few coins I have picked up in the last week for my type set. 1798 Draped Bust style 2 Large Cent, 1867 Indian Cent, 1835 Capped Bust Quarter, 1861 Seated Liberty Quarter, 1912 Barber Quarter, 1871 Seated Liberty Dollar, and an 1874-S Trade Dollar.
  8. Took 2 weeks shipping time, but QB Griffins finally arrived.
  9. Thanks guys for the speedy replies. This forum is the best. Info passed on to my dealer friend.
  10. While I was at my LCS today, he showed me a couple 1987 gold Britannias that he had bought from a customer. They have some writing engraved on the obverse that I believe is chinese, but I'm not sure. My dealer had never seen anything like this before and asked if I was familiar with them, which I was not. I gave him my best guess that they were probably stamped after market for some type of celebration event? If anyone here can read these markings, or has some experience with similar items, I would appreciate the input, which I will pass on to my dealer friend. He did XRF the coins and they read correct gold content, 22k I believe he told me.
  11. Stopped by my go to LCS today to buy some of the Mayflower 400th Anniversary gold and silver coins. He knew I had missed out on them on the release day cuz the Mint changed the normal release time. He bought some from a customer yesterday and called me right away. Picked up the gold and silver 2 coin sets as well as the gold reverse proof coin. I also bought a few coins to fill some holes in my U.S. Type set.
  12. Thanks for pointing that out to me. It's an 1826 CAPPED Bust. My bad. Are you using an album? And if so, which one?
  13. I've recently decided to work on completing a U.S. Type Set. It's something I've thought of doing for a couple years now. S I bought an Intercept Shield U.S. Type Set album, and went to one of my favorite LCS' to see about filling some holes. Besides some modern clad stuff I needed, the interesting bits were an 1826 Capped Bust half dollar that I had to have as soon as I saw it. It has wonderful details for being a circulated sample. I also got an 1867 2 cent piece, 1943 Walking Liberty and 1955 Franklin half dollars, and an 1922 Peace Dollar. I know this is going to take me quite a while to complete. The plan is to buy MS grade for as many of the coins as possible, up to the point where they cost an arm and a leg to buy, and try going for VF/EF/AU for those.
  14. Received my Xmas draw today. 2019 1 oz oriental border Britannia and 1 oz Scottsdale bar. Thank you @adamthetaller.
