    Good as place as any to post this.

    While making a deposit at the credit union, asked for halves. Out of three rolls got nine 1968's and one 1966.

    I gave up on clad coinage from my CU until I figured out they don't regularly give out coins, they're not a business CU, so, how about $1 coins?
    I already went through all their halves, LOL

    Sure enough, their $1 rolls were "fresh"
    2 x 2 'd lots of 'em until they weren't "fresh" anymore
    LOL

    Next?

    @Irons. Sir I'm fixing to pull a trigger on my first sovereign. Torn between the old stuff and new, as I see the 2017 version is also in stock. It's the 200th anniversary year and I find myself leaning that way.

    Do you have a preference? i no you've looked at a lot of pics of them on the web so I figured I'd ask.

    The 2017 with the 200 year privy on it is a cool coin, I had one before I lost it boating. I really really want a 2017 boxed proof but they will have to get a lot cheaper before I spring for one. ALL Sovereigns are fantastic coins brother Wanka you can't go wrong.
    And premiums are back down to normal so the barking masses are back to chasing whatever coin of the day is popular right now and leaving my Sov's alone again.

    Nice lookin coin Bemac. I've been buying foreign silver lately also. Definitely not the cheapest way to buy but it keeps me interested.


    These are all recent lcs coins here guys, nothing special.
    Very unprofessional shot of this one here, snapped it directly behind the lamp shad to give it a gold tinge to ease Ironsbro in.

    Wasn't sure what to make of this guy when he looked at me but i like the coin.

    Don’t let ol bros ‘dial bring you down Stoneman, he’ll lighten up when the GSR falls back out of the stratosphere.

    Meantime your pics look great, man. Not quite up there in Tom D land yet, but looking quite fine just the same.
