    I'm actually pretty smitten with this coin and could see a collection in the future. The problem is the older ones in decent condition go for big $$$
    You stole those !!!!!!!! I own one and it goes with me to work ( well it is n my dragon coin rotation)... Um if you do not need both of them let me know via PM haha.

    The only coins I have in PVC flips are in capsules haha. But yes this is important to tell people, since PVC does discolor the coins over time.

    Great stuff, as usual. I'm interested in these silver crowns - for some reason I'm unfamiliar with them. I just ordered a St. George 20 for 20 because I thought it was pretty cool, and I own a couple of sovereigns. Dig the design though for sure, where are you guys getting them at, Ebay? Very cool stuff.

    Picked up a decent 1805 mexican MoTh 8 reales with some chop
    Marks I think in its condition its worth $150 or so I paid 35 bucks
    And yes it's authentic the person just mainly deals in bullion.
    Also grabbed a cool little 1oz sterling hand poured bar it has 925 and a small
    Peace sign and a small skull and cross bones on it paid melt for it.
    So no big score just 2 cool items.

    Went to a bargain shop last week, and they had a bucket full of foreign coins (presumably all base metal) for a dollar each. Stumbled across a 1960 CHF coin. 5 grams total weight, .144 tOz of silver. I'll share the pics if I can figure out how to upload them inline, not with cheezy links.

    Update: made the photo my avatar.
