JR Newsletter: 16 January 2011 (19)

Not much input this week.

Jim sent something in:

Just wanted to take a second to thank you for sending me this informative newsletter every week. Keep up the great work. I'm not a variety collector, but do love the Seated coins' design, and pick up a piece now and then.

Since you asked for letters and photos of Seated material, I thought I'd attach a photo of one of my favorites, a PCGS, AU-50, 1861 Seated Half Dollar. I love its "old silver" patina. I hope the photos are clear enough for you to see. I have no idea whether it is any special sort of die marriage or not.



Editor's Comments:

Stack's has some cool coins and other numismatic items up for auction in their "Americana Sale" of January 26-27.  You might want to check it out!
