Those are pretty neat. Unfortunately price prohibitions (and my newbie
ability) prevent me from seeking those old beauties, but at least I got to
look at yours!

Congratulations on a nice collection.

I don't know about EF-45 but I do think it looks undergraded.  I would have
said VF-30 at least.

Congrats! That's quite a nice 1797 half cent you've got there. I don't have that
variety yet, Though it's near the top of my list. I love the wildly misplaced 1!

Congratulation, Barry!  With all the attention (and crazy money!) being paid to
MS-71 modern mania, it's refreshing to see a real collection of real coins--
nice ones, too.  Appreciate your sharing with them with us dinosaurs out here.

Thanks Bruce. That one came from Tom Reynolds at the last Balto show.

Very Cool!  But, looking at your pictures, I thought of a (probably very, very
dumb) question....

Only the half cent and the cent have a denomination on it.  Considering that
USA coinage was in its infancy, how did people know the denomination of the
other coinage?  Just by weight and size?

(I told you it was a dumb question)

Looks like one of our trolls has learned some basic x-code except for the
fact that since I have replied (and I disabled the code), all will be able
to see the post, forever.

Lol, not me man....I'm still having difficulty with VF-AU Lincolns. The only series I'm
comfortable grading without consulting a reference is the Franklin Half. I'm not too bad
at Walkers either, but I don't have the strike peculiarities down like I do with
Franklins.

Is that luster I'm seeing? That's what I focused on at first.

Don't mind me Jim. Just babbling there for a bit. I'm OK now.
