1878-S Long Nock picked in the wild

Post by jtlee321 » Sun May 22, 2022 11:30 pm

I had a fun day yesterday visiting 2 shops I had never been to before. The first shop, is where I found this baby. I was looking at a tray of Morgans all in protective 2x2's. I started with the earliest dates, and so this one came up pretty quick. It was the 3rd coin I looked at. I didn't find much else except for an 1880/79 VAM-6.

I attributed this one as a VAM-56. It still has a touch of luster around the devices.

That is sweet! Nothing like pickin' and a grinnin'.

Killer-diller specimen and photos.
Refrain from computing the total number of poultry... before the process of incubation has fully materialized.
