Re: Cool Peace $ CUD

I place this coin ( Vam 2U2) along with the Morgan Spaghetti Vam (1878 S Vam 18) as both 5 star key coins to a collection. It is a joke to me that neither of these appear on a “ List”.

Re: OT A little older

Great looking 2500 year old coin JR! I may be wrong, but I believe that the owl is the symbol honoring Athena, who Athens is named after. The helmet detail is amazing.

Re: Old holder madness at Heritage

People have been over paying GSA holders for years. I always thought the cellophane “soft holders “ for the GSA hord leftovers, was even more stupid. Quoting Forrest Gump, “ stupid is as stupid does”. :lol:
