Re: Leroy Letter, nah... Leroy 2-page ARTICLE !! :) :) :)

Great job Chris. For those that like gouges check out the 1890 CC VAM 13 revision and read Leroy`s letter in the LVA Comments. Great photos from LVA. It sure feels rewarding to get recognition from Leroy. Congrats Chris, well done.

I believe I`m out of ideas for now! Your coin has the 5D markers. Really I have no need to see your coin. It`s got the rev. arrowhead dots. Good enough for me.
