Default Went to the local fleamarket today....

And was disappointed...a bit cloudy and drizzle....coin dealer was nowhere to be seen, so KT figures this method of halves purchase has ended until this coming Spring, so after running several Royal Errands for the Queen, KT did a bit of ebay searching and has bids out on several lots of 90% Kens and Bens. We shall see how this works out! KT has done this before and He manages to win about every 10th lot He bothers to bid on. Set a value per coin and will not bid over that value......that's how KT works it. No sadness if His Majesty does not win, and a good deal if He Does...for KT.

.it's "only" $1,195.00

Well, KT did receive the 30 Franklins He ordered. Well pleased with the purchase! No 40s but a nice mix of 50s and 60s. \The pics are grouped below...early 50s first, then late 50s, and finally 60s. Numbers pretty evenly spread between 50s and 60s. Some are in very nice condition and most do not show heavy wear. One 52 had a blob of ? on it and under the Royal Hot Water Tap and a little Dawn and the Royal Fingernail, it gave way and the half cleaned right up! One S mint in the entire group, a 53, of special relevance to the Queen.

Anyway, enjoy the pics and KT is about to make a short trip and stay with Friends in another Kingdom, so hopefully He will be back early next week with the results of another CRH!

Enjoy the pics!

Royal Thanks, GKL! Pretty certain you are correct in that assumption! But still KT would love to see what all is hidden away in all those lock boxes in the vault!

Well its November! And as soon a KT pays off the Royal Monthly Debt and sees what He has left in disposable Royal Cash, His Majesty will be back to looking at what is available in half dollar collections at reasonable prices. KT assumes His Royal Fleamarket Contact is done for the season, or until Spring arrives next year!

New posting in a new thread when He makes that connection/buy!
