Leroy doesn’t get too excited about my discoveries. After all the years that everyone has been searching 1879s’s, a super clash is found and it registers as an r5. Where are the rest of them?

Oh, and my whole office is upside down because of water damage. My wife had commandeered my copy stand and table for taking pictures. My digital scope is down because of the repairs to the office and my microscope and digital camera are pushed to side while all of my reference materials are boxed up. My fax/copy machine went kablooey too, as did my scanner. All that and doing 40-some shows a year and multiple doctor appointments per week. At least I don’t have to mow 4 acres much for rest of th year or take car of the gardens.

What makes it worse is an interest level 1. Congrats on a huge DC in my opinion!

I have never seen a 79 S clashed. I say R6/7

Having a very hard time posting pictures. Had to vacate our offices due to water damage. Scanner is shot, fax/copy machine is shot. Digital microscope down, my wife took over the table with the copy stand(for shooting pictures), microscope/camera setup is far removed from my laptop, and then there is that problem of doing 40+ shows a year. My whole life has been turned upside down because of the water damage.

Trying to take pictures with my phone but it is not working too well. The eagle’s head, wing gap,, N, UST wreath, all show well on the obverse, while the neck, nice, eye, cotton boll, and loads of hair show.

I know these pictures don’t do it as much justice as I would like but it is all I can do until my office is restored to order, and who knows how long it will take to repair the damage.
