Re: guess which 1888-O

Well if the GC listing looks like a 62 instead of a 64 . I may change my own guess on my 1B to ms 60 :lol: I'll play along in a new thread either you start it or I can latter , I am thinking my coin is like Harrison stage H 1.5 ,,, Micro Vamming at it's finest ! :lol: :lol:

Excellent! Looks nice. Sticking with the template makes it easier to view them all quickly. Thanks for doing this. Hoping you have a graphics tablet of some sort.

No tablet. Just Photoshop, a mouse, and a 27" monitor.
labor of love Mr, D ! Solid work Sir!
