Half-bean under the branch, a polished ear and no clashing? Yup, 33.

It's the one shown in this post: http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1073&hilit=wow I'm not particularly sure which sub-variety it would actually fall under any more, but it IS a WOW!

Ok, so I think you may be confused about "PL". An AU coin is supposed to have some luster left, so, by default, you SHOULD still be able to see mirrored fields (in the less contacted areas) on an AU coin. "PL" has everything to do with mirrors and nothing to do with wear...

Re: Possible new finds

Just a note, some of the folks you've been conversing with have been doing THIS professionally for decades as well... and they're building on knowledge that others have accumulated for decades before them. In your profession do you ever use Occam's Razor? If so, ask yourself this question: Would it ...

Sorry to hear Hawk, I'm currently in the midst of the same. Our Shiba Inu is 15 and recently developed a severe limp that has me nervous. :(
