Re: MATED PAIRS
- Eureka! Each coin is nice on it's own anyway. The seller never sold
them as mated, I just thought I saw a mated pair from the 2 listings
that were 5 minutes apart. I even printed the pics from his listings
and fit them together before I bid. That's why I bounce these things
off of you. Now I have examples in hand and know what to look for in
a genuine mated pair. Thanks again Mike.
