    mr1030 got a reaction from AgD in Today I bought.....   
    The owner of the LCS I frequent opened a second shop about 30 miles from my house.  It was opening day today, and since it was my day off, I drove over to check out the new store.  I took over a six pack of beer as a store warming gift, and planned on making a modest purchase to celebrate the new shop.  Of course he put a more significantly priced item in front of me that he had recently purchased that he knew I would have a hard time refusing. 
    1989 Double Sovereign.  No box or COA, but he gave me a great price on it.  And also bought a nice 1891 Jubilee Shilling.


    And I ended up being the first paying customer at the new store.

    mr1030 got a reaction from Serendipity in Redesign Underway for American Eagles   
    I like the degree of change they are making.  I absolutely adore the Walking Liberty and St Gaudens designs, and happy that they are remaining.  Two of the most beautiful designs ever created in U.S. coinage history.  Changing the reverse designs with new security features is a nice and much needed refresh while leaving the most endearing features of the current designs.  I've always had a luke warm feeling for the reverse of the ASE, and have always thought the reverse of the AGE was terrible, and a very poor counterpart to the beautiful design on the front.

    @MetalMandible  Agree the Palladium Eagle is gorgeous.  I love the one I have and wish I could have got my hands on all three.  Platinum Eagles are a hit and miss with me.  The bullions don't have much appeal for me.  But the proofs, I think some are very nice and others are duds.

    So I stopped by the LCS again and picked up some pretty things that he doesn't often have come in to his shop. Maundy.
    1859 4 pence.  My picture doesn't do it justice.  Beautiful, bright with proof-like fields.
     


    1762 3 pence


    And a very attractive 1901 penny.


    He also had an absolutely gorgeous 1852 Proof Seated Liberty Half Dollar.  I wish I had thought to take a picture of it. Some MS Trade Dollars.  A lot of other stuff that all came in one collection he bought earlier in the day.

    I'm a bit of a magpie. Trying to be more restrained but I have very low willpower when it comes to the shiny stuff 😁. Probably a third of what I've posted on here is now gone but it's all been great to own and the majority if what I buy now does end up in my core collection
    That's the key then, buy lots of coins and be a serial poster on today I received.

    Thanks @richatthecroft for the link to get this amazing Angry Birds Cupro Nickel coin.
    There was a good offer on at the time, you buy the Angry Birds coin, and you get the "50 Years Of The 50p Anniversary Coin" free.
    Not sure which coin I prefer 😁
    TBH I wasnt going to get the 50p but I gave in to the links peer preasure. Although it does look rather good up close 😎
