    Wow! My first "Hamilton" halves! 48 ninety percent silvers total. Another 9 forty percenters. Some of the Hamiltons are BU! About 18 ounces total! The teller was so glad to get rid of the doors she let out a cheer as I left...

    Poked, but didn't impale
    Made aware of the dress

    Great score, congrats! Do you suppose Hamilton is the bald guy or the cross dresser?

    I am comfortable claiming that this the SINGLE GREATEST SCORE OF HAMILTON HALVES EVER!

    Was it a commemorative? I have never seen that half. Post some pics.
    I do see a lot of Ben Franklin's.
