2 very nice coins join my growing collection
I would like to share my latest additions to my Modern Commemorative collection...the Proof and MS strikes of the Star Spangled Banner. The Mint did a much better job with this coin then the Infantry design that came out earlier this year.
The MS version has the new NGC FIRST RELEASE label. Now I dont know what that really means or what the difference is from the EARLY RELEASE tag. But to quote NGC...Use this special NGC designation to show that your coins are the first from the Mint! I dont know if they were the first from the Mint but I guess NGC means you ordered them and got them to NGC first...or at least within their 30 day window! LABEL MADNESS! Anyways, I have a sample in my collection.
These will most likely be the last I add to my coin collection for a few months. I am turning my attention and funds to add a few pieces to my collection of firefighter memorabilia. An old style fire alarm pull box and some brass hand tools and nozzles would go very nicely with my hydrant and extinguishers.
Best of luck in all your endeavors
