Default September starter was not a loser!

Especially after the way August ended!

Not a lot but KT got silver to store in the Royal Treasure Chest this week!

Box 1 - 6 NIFC, 1 Au-plated Ken

Box 2 - Nuttin'

Box 3 - 2 40% Ag Kens, 2 NIFCs, 1 Au-plated Ken

Box 4 - 4 NIFCs

Box 5 - 1 40% Ag Ken, 5 NIFCs, 1 Panama Medio Balboa

Totals: 3 40% Ag Kens, 18 NIFCs (2 Keepers), 2 Au-plated Kens, 1 foreign.

A sparse take but it sure beats a skunk CRH!

Enjoy the pics and best of luck to all in September !

KT's Royal Chariot is in the repair shop having new shocks and struts installed today, the ride was getting awful rough on the Royal Family's old bones!

Thanks GroundSweeper. For some reason KT likes those large foreign coins, especially those with that high relief minting of Balboa! If KT is correct, that coin was minted by the US Mint on contract for Panama.

Thanks, jkbemdavis. KT was glad to get some silver, even 40%ers, to start off the month!

Not the biggest royal haul, but KT's on the board!

I like that Balboa! I bought the Wife a Silver Dollar Balboa at a Coin Show this year...She took a liking to the design and they are a cool coin! I trust your Royal Rumpus is riding in style now?

You hit it all the way around, a few silvers and then an overage!

Yep, KT just got back from a trip to southern Indiana and the riding was smooth all the way!

KT gets one or two of these Medio Balboa coins a year....this one is in the best condition, having much more detail than the others He has captured.

And yes, after a trip of over 1000 miles since the repair, the Royal Rump came through without a hitch!
