    Cherry Picking Pt 1

    Was running errands and decided to stop into a We Buy Gold place that also has collectibles. Then hit three pawn shops. The pennies I got for 2 dollars.

    1883 O Dollar PCGS MS62

    The dollare is slabbed and bought 10% under retail. But I counted fiver separate die breaks on the obverse. So at some point I am going to figure out how to price this one and flip it. Definitely not the prettiest coin but different enough to pick up.

    I like those 7 type sets of 82s.
    They tend to sell for over $5, still not bad for someone wanting an unc of each type.

    Very cool finds!! I'm with Ed, that's a nice set of the 82's in excellent condition for the money! Nice find on the wheats and IHC too! Don't mean to disappoint but the Morgan is fairly run of the mill. The cracks are somewhat common and some dates extremely common. Here's a link to the coin you have though.

    I recognize your "image 1(2)" : "The Wild West Coin Collection".
    I have a few of these sets around somewhere.
    They're from the 1990's.
    I'll find them and post some images to compare with your set.

    The VAM-39A is the one I have! I suspect it is later die than the picture shown as the one I have has cracks not shown. I really appreciate the link!
