Half Cent (1793-1857) 1093 1806 1/2C VF35BN 74 481 91816856
A gift from my wife Cathey for Christmas, this early half cent pre-dates the War of 1812, having been minted during Thomas Jefferson's second term. It has been variety-attributed, noting the small 6 on the obverse and lack of stems on the reverse, one of the more common varieties for this date. This coin has witnessed more than 200 years of history, from the two close calls--1812 and the Civil War--that almost destroyed our nation, to the rise of the U.S. as an international superpower in the Twentieth Century in the aftermath of two World Wars.

Early Quarter (1796-1838) 5354 1835 25C XF40 121 339 8383775
This coin dates back to Andrew Jackson's administration and the passage of Halley's Comet, along with the coincident birth of the writer popularly known as Mark Twain, whom I should note was a big proponent of Osteopathy.
Liberty Seated Quarter (1838-1891) 5426 1853 25C VF20 28 1662 57029238
A rather heavily used example of the one year type, featuring dramatic rays on the reverse to set it apart from previous years. This coin may be the 1000th 1853 quarter to enter into the PCGS population.

Liberty Seated Half Dollar (1839-1891) 6445 1884 50C PR63 79 108 44118127
My first $1k+ non-gold coin, my first pre-modern proof, and a radical departure from my emphasis on gold among my higher end coins.

Walking Liberty Half Dollar (1916-1947) 6626 1945-S 50C MS65 4064 1421 12869362079
Got at a coin show around 2001, originally certified by Accugrade. I cracked it out and had it regraded raw with PCGS, and was pleased that it returned still MS65. This coin was minted in the year that saw the end of World War II, a turbulent year that brought the end of the horrors of the Nazi regime, but also brought what hopefully will never be repeated--the use of nuclear weapons.

Peace Dollar (1921-1935) 7365 1925 $1 MS65 8052 2370 468289510
For my side project, of affordable but carefully picked Peace Dollars. This coin has a very clean and flashy obverse with superior eye appeal. The reverse looks splotchy on the scan, but in person exhibits subtle reddish tonning over the "splotches," and a soft blue over the base and the word "Peace." This piece raises the bar on my future work on this set.

From Lone Star Mint, funded in part by purging CDs, DVDs, and books I no longer need. This coin has subtle but remarkable toning when viewed up close in person.
Indian Head $5 (1908-1929) 8520 1911 $5 MS64 469 120 80341704
My big purchase for the year at the ANA Money Show in Dallas, the same day I first became an ANA member. Cathey and Mom were with me to enjoy the show. CAC approved.
Early $10 (1795-1804) $10
Liberty Head $10 (1838-1907) 8733 1895-O $10 MS62 104 29 6758345020
A regrade; I had hoped for a 62+. I bought this coin before knowing its real relative rarity, intrigued by the O mint mark and passing on a more common date in MS63. I got home and discovered on CoinFacts what a bargain I had.
Indian Head $10 (1907-1933) 8884 1932 $10 MS64 10076 2036 187504687
From Saunders at the Texas Coin Show in Grapevine. CAC endorsed.
Liberty Head $20 (1850-1907) 9045 1904 $20 MS63 58960 40804 12478671060
From the TNA show in Fort Worth, 2011. It's the common 1904 date, but it has excellent eye appeal. My first CAC green-bean.
$20 St. Gaudens (1907-1933) 9177 1924 $20 MS66 9198 242 327242225
