Default Better than last week! HA HA

After a total silver bust last week, KT is happy to have recovered a 64 Ken this week!

He picked up 14 NIFCs this week, but 3 was of an already completed roll and 1 was a really crappy 2014....those got tossed back, and 10 were kept! Did not bother to take a pic of the NIFCs.

Box 1 contained only 1 keeper...a decent proof. Box 2 contained the most unusual counterstamped half KT has ever seen. Picture was taken through a USB led microscope...think you all will like that image!

And there was 1 Au-plated Ken in the same photo as the proof. Both the Au-plated ken and the counter-stamped are going into an Oddities roll.

Enjoy the pictures! Onward and upwards next week!

Nice recovery on the 64 KEN. Very interesting counter strike coin, I have never gotten one like that. Here's hoping that next week returns you to a more bountiful silver harvest.

His Majesty thankest thee for the kind words, and KT does like oddities like that! Even if they are not mint made!

KT has had His Royal USB led lit microscope for a few years now and loves taking pictures of objects with it...here is a pic of an interesting mineral from Arkansas so you can see its primary usage, magnification 15X:

Default Other "NO MORE LIES" Coins

I just found a link about the "No More Lies" counterstamps, with information and photos of many other coins with the counterstamp. See below.
