Russy Coin Album
What can I say about the centerpiece of my collection. It's a pop 1/0 blazing monster and the highest graded PCGS PR 1911 (including RDs). It also happens to be 94.99% red, and magnificently toned with a swirl of purple in Lincoln's hair and a firey lemon/orange peel reverse. I'm pleased to share the awesome truview. CAC approved.
This coin is original as it gets - uniquely toned and crusty as it sat in the original proof set for 99 years. Part of the Time Capsule auction in 2011, it was cut out of the original proof set from the mint after 99 years and graded. I am the 2nd owner! A top pop 2/0 with no other RDs graded same or numerically higher. CAC.
This amazing coin speaks for itself. This is the only T1 (Satin) '36 proof I have ever seen with this amount of color and luster - most are dull and lifeless (hense why the mint switched to a T2 (Brilliant) proof that year. The coin is not as dark as the trueview would lead you to believe, but it nails the color. I've seen Heritage auction photos of the lone 67RD and respectfully, it doesn't compare. Pop 4/1. CAC
