Owner Comments:

Perfection.

This was the first coin that I accrued for this set. I was able to get it at one of the Sunday Night Teletrade Auction for a fraction of the going eBay prices.

When it arrived in the mail, I noticed that the holder was cracked on the right-hand side of the back. The coin was in excellent shape but the crack was there. Of course I had to mumble under my breath about the handling damage of the USPS. Then I thought that I had better recheck the pictures from the auction before I started blaming anybody. When I pulled up the pictures, there it, was the crack stood out like a sore thumb. How did I not see it when I was bidding on this coin? I guess I was too caught up in the coin to notice the damage to the holder.

I am still very pleased with this addition and I will look harder at the holder, as well as the coin, next time.
