Default KT has a reason to dance!

Just finishing up searching the two Royal Boxes of halves a few minutes ago.

Box 1 gave up a single 1967 40%Ag Ken.

Box 2 was the big winner, giving up a hardly circulated highly lusterous 57 Bennie! It looks like it just was popped out of someone's mint half collection and went into a coin sorter. Just a couple of very minor blemishes just in front of olde Ben's nose! Could be simple bag marks. There is not one bit of tarnish on this coin. Note the clean field the bust sits on, compared to the worn field that Kennedy's bust sits on. KT was dancing and dancing after saving that Ben!


The back of the Ben is so clean, the bell has absolutely NO wear on it! Amazing! Enjoy the picture!

Holy Carp that Benjamin is crisp and clean, and no caffeine! The '67 is also! Congrats KT!

Yep! Olde Benjamin has that minty fresh luster, for certain! Only one KT has seen that is as nice is a graded one in a holder at the local coin shop. But since this is not a rare date, KT will not send it in to be graded. The 67 was dipped to clean the tarnish off of it, and it did come out nice! But that Bennie...ooo la la!

Royal Thanks, Ron 71! In over 9 years of CRHing, that Benjamin is the nicest condition coin KT has ever come across!

Soil Surgeon, it is great to have a reason to dance!
