Purdy 21........-S

Post by CascadeChris » Thu Aug 23, 2018 2:10 am

I haven't slogged through the 21s page yet but thought I'd share this beauty. These are quick pics and she's 63 at best but you get the gist. So flashy, so silky, so lustrous & so NOT a 21 San Fran that I had to check for signs of an added MM :lol:

Nice. When you find a well-struck 21-S with silky luster, you buy it. The spot on the lower reverse bugs me, but it's otherwise a nice looking coin.

Yeah. I remember that one you picked up in Anaheim or Denver; a 66 IIRC? Agreed on the spot but it should come off with a simple Qtip dip. It's more of a toning spot from a 2x2 pinhole than a full on carbon killer (hopefully.) Just haven't got around to conserving it yet.

65 from a Stack's/Bowers auction. Heritage just sold a similar one at the ANA show.

Always tough with a full strike.
I have a MS65* that took years to find in grade and (almost) full strike. Very nice for 21S

I was watching one on Heritage PCGS64 this week and forgot to bid.

Well this one was in a junk bin. No love for any 21 date at some places, apparently :lol:

Conservation complete. Killed about 95% of that spot. About a year too late to kill it completely I guess but this ain't bad!
