Adding to my 1887 collection. I like this year because it was Sherlock Holmes' first year.
My first ever full sovereign, though I had a 1/2 graded MS 61.
I think the Crown is MS 61. I had a Crown MS 63 that was similar wear. I'll regrade that.
The Penny might be AU-55 or maybe MS 61 on a good day. The sail boat has nice detail. Not bad for a raw penny.
I am back collecting.
I am building my 1887 collection again. And I bought a bunch of Britania's [not shown] and a few US coins.
The Florin I will get graded. The Double Florin is cleaned. But I am looking for a Gothic Florin graded, if anyone has one.
Recent arrivals from one of my fave german dealers
1/4 oz gold Queen's Beasts White Lion of Mortimer to continue my collection - a few % cheaper compared to Atkinsons.
and after taking part in @StevenDS challenge, i decided to join the Libertad party with some 2018 ones.
