      I don't know that I'll be buying or selling this coin anytime soon, given it's six-figure cost. But it's good to know what it looks like in case it should ever appear in my change. Voting this Up and Interesting.

      Lyric - You are the master of the tattoo yet you do so well on advice for coin collectors. My brothers dabbles in this and all too often someone he knows gets ripped off. On those rare occasions, someone scores the rare coin!

      I recall reading about this back in the days when I was collecting. It was always a dream to find something like this is someone's attic.

      I wouldn't mind having a pocket full of these coins. I really do enjoy looking at old coins. I have some old pennies dating back to the nineteen hundreds. Good to see you..
