  1. Hi Dickson'
    Phiit, a real matching pair.
    Some more in top grade.
    Guess these pair should be kept together.
    Probably fetching a better premium as a pair.
    In fact we were thinking of collecting this way too for some common coins with die breaks.
    Trying to collect as many as possible in the best grades on each of the varieties.
    Really very nice to look at with all of the same kind and same grade together.
    Congratulations and thanks a lot Dickson :)
