Description: A fully struck coin with reflective surfaces displaying cartwheel lustre and some mint red still showing. Looks like a 65 to me. The PCGS photo doesn't do justice to the eye appeal of this coin. This is PCGS Coinfacts Plate coin for MS64BN.
Description: As nice of one of these as I have ever had. Sharply struck, untoned surfaces with the reverse flashy prooflike and the obverse frosty. A great type coin!
Description: A bright, untoned coin that is fully struck and lustrous. A few hairlines from handling limit the grade, but there is no loss of lustre anywhere. The coin is bright white to the eye.
Description: A fully struck and lustrous coin with just a few hairlin3es from circulation. There appears to be no loss of lustre on the high points or the fields, just a few light hairlines. I think it's an AU58 at worst.
Description: Type A/A; A lustrous yellow/gold coin on a crude planchet. I think really undergraded! No hairlines or bag marks and cartwheel lustre remains. Even the crown shows nearly full detail which most don't.
Description: Really nice and so close to unc. Well struck with nice white lustre.
Description: A lustrous, lightly toned example. Fully struck with a full outlie of the nose and lip line. A few of the typical bag marks, but much less than normal. If a little brighter, would have graded 58.
Description: A brilliant coin with full lustre and a trace of wear. Much nicer than most with less bag marks than usual. The reverse has a smattering of tiny, toned spots seen in the photo.
Description: A white coin with very lustrous surfaces and the typical bagginess of these coins.
Description: A prooflike coin with charcoal blue/grey splotchy toning that nearly hides some light hairlines from brief circulation. A key Newfoundland coin with a mintage of only 2,041 pieces!
Description: Scarce variety. Discounted because of some marks on cheek I missed.
Description: L; A nice repunched date on this first year type of Indian cent, at a much reduced price!

About Dr. Eugene Bruder
Like many collectors, I started collecting coins as a 12 year old in 1959 when the Lincoln Cent had a change in design. I was quickly hooked, and by my later teenage years I was collecting Liberty Seated proofs and some Bust coinage. I was also entranced by postage stamps, enjoying the intricate engravings on the early issues of the US and Canada. I delivered three paper routes daily in order to have enough money to buy coins and stamps.
College caused me to have to dispose of my collections in order to pay for school. After my internship in Hawaii, where I met my wife Diann, I again picked up the collecting bug while deployed in the Army in Alaska. Coins and stamps kept me busy as a hobby until I moved to California in 1986, whereupon I began dealing in coins part time by attending local coin shows.Read More
