Hi Dan,

Thank you. Sorry to miss you in Baltimore also! Todd mentioned that you had some family obligations.Your 1851 dollar is very rare! Brian and Dick were estimating about 60 known. Great detail. If I had the funds, I would have bought it also!

All that I can say is wow on that 1867, that coin has the look that should convince anyone to be a collector. Great work Ken as well as that little cc beauty

I am one of the old-timers in LSCC (member #0003), being a member since inception of the club in 1973. I completed a Seated quarter collection (less only the 1973cc no arrows) in the 1970's and later sold my collection. My favorite non-seated coin is the Tetradrachm of Alexander the Great. This particular silver piece, Alexandertetradrachm.jpg about the size of a half dollar but thicker, was minted a few years after his death in 323 BC. It's reverse consists of the seated image of Zeus Aëtophoros seated left. It grades as an XF or better.

Thanks for the post, these old coins are always fascinating to me. It’s also great to see one of the founding members still active. We can’t even get middle aged guys to post on the forum.

Thanks Dan,
I am still a believer in Numismatics as a great fraternity for those who value human history. Being able to see LSCC accomplish so much in the education of general collectors and dealers over the years is a great delight. I was fortunate to be Sect'y/Treas during the early years and value my experience with  the hobby greatly.
Mel.
