        I never really liked the edge inscriptions, especially as they were
        added after the fact (except in proofs). However, crowding everything
        onto the obverse or reverse face will make the design look more crowded
        than a sidewalk in Manhattan.

          No doubt,

          I've not visited Manhattan, but I've been to Seoul, S. Korea and walked their
          streets, which is like sardines doubled packed into a single can!

          These edge mishap's have not floated my boat. Besides the reward money given
          out, (which I didn't get the slightest rise out of and which was hosted by one
          of the major grading cert outfits), it has been a rather UN-interesting run so
          far.

            Jeff - I like your analogy, comparing it to Manhattan. Try Mardi Gras
            on the last night for crowding.

            Today's designs are insipid when compared to the old style of coinage
            that we had and the MINT's inability in trying to recreate those past
            ideas is at best questionable. Lets go back to the old LIBERTY
            designs, the modern day presidents, staring back at me, leaves me a
            bit cold. I suffer through the Lincoln cent because it is the oldest
            of designs, semi-unchanged, but even then, what has happened to this
            copper make me wince.

            My favorite is the $20.00 gold piece, Saint-Gaudens double eagle,
            followed by the walking LIBERTY on the older 50 cent pieces (although
            the silver eagle is not to bad) and then, because I am still a male
            chavanistic pig, the bare breasted LIBERTY of 1916 and 1917 on the
            quarter. Nor must I negelect to mention the Indian head or Buffalo
            nickel. Yes, Fraser, MacNeil and Weinman designed excellent obverses
            and reverses, probably something that will never be captured again in
            our coin history.

            The forth coming Lincoln cent of 2009, with its four reverses,
            depicting Lincoln's life, will probably never comapre to the 1909
            Lincoln cent, either the V.D.B version or the plain. My interest in
            these 2009 coins will of course be the error or variety version,
            which is bound to occur.

            Well anyway, to all a Happy New Year, be safe and live well.

                You can add the Liberty Standing Half Dollar to the other 2 for the
                most beautiful US coin designs.

                Imagine the outcry nowadays if a coin were to be issued with a woman's
                bare breast or animal's penis exposed. One might thing that hail and
                fire would rain down upon us! But it's OK to show almost anything on TV
                in what used to be family hour (7-9PM). Blatent adult sexual
                situations, or commercials with movie/TV trailers showing death,
                graphic violence and gore during a sports game that young kids are
                watching in the afternoon. That's A-OK.

                Viva Viagra to all erectile disfunctionals!

                "What is E.D. daddy?"

                Money talks...but just don't put that stuff ON the money.

                Happy New Year to all......
