GFRC Open Set Registry - BIG BLUE 1840 Seated No Drapery 25C 1-a (mintmark way left). Iridescent aqua blue toning made this a keeper. More luster than what appears from the photo. Stronger than normal strike for a New Orleans mintage known for weak strikes.

GFRC Open Set Registry - BIG BLUE 1846 Seated  25C A near mint state speciman purchased raw on Ebay. There are a few light wispy lines accross the obverse flats but not enough to deter PCGS of it\'s originality because of the ample remaining luster.

GFRC Open Set Registry - BIG BLUE 1854 Seated With Arrows 25C I think this coin is strong for the grade but some chatter in the right obverse field coupled with grungy organics kept it out of a 45 holder. Interesting retained CUD on the reverse.
