Interesting Piece

By  RockyMtnHigh

5.0

As always, APMEX continues to impress. At first the coin appeared average with black spots on the obverse (which is as advertised) but after a few wipes with a wet microfiber rag, the appearance VASTLY improved. I just wish APMEX would spend a minute or so cleaning prior to shipping. Just nit-picking... thanks again APMEX!

I have not ordered these coins, but when I was a paperboy, back in the 1960's, one of my customers gave me one as a Christmas present. I still have it. I was 13 at the time, and the old man who gave it to me probably had kept it around for years. Bless his soul! A piece of history in your hand.

Toning

Very worn but got some great toning. Dark overall, gold hue evident, rainbow beginning...cool silver piece. I got one of the worn/cleaned ones, received a cleaned one with excellent relief so I can see the features that are missing on this one. Too bad I can't combine them into one perfect coin!

I ordered a couple of these and was pleasantly surprised. I was amazed at the detail on this coin that was at the Chicago World's Fair. Who knows, it might have passed through the hands of H.H Holmes. The price is right, you should pick a few up.
