You are looking at Dealer's choice half dollars. The coins in these pictures are NOT the coins you will receive. Coins are guaranteed to be in as good if not better conditions than these coins, but buyer must understand no two coins are the same and there will be micro variances as coins are historical artifacts.
Condition - Coins will be circulated.
Details: Good - Basically all text is readable and coins are easily identified as a amazing US currency. Dates may be worn, but usually readable. Excellent presentation peices for magic.
Softness: 8/10 - These coins are all nice and smooth with absolute minimal to no defects in faces, rims and edges. Faces are beginning to be worn flat, but still have rather clear and good details. The silver feels nice and soft to the touch. Coins will quietly slide on their faces with very little if any noise. Each set is hand selected, very soft, and ready for professional performance. (Slick coins will be 9.9/10 or 10/10 softness.) See Note Below about Kennedy Halves.†
Reeded Edges - Sets will have worn edges that still exhibit moderate grip. Edges will be clean. No dents or drop marks! Tiny scratches or small worn marks may be present. (Except coins that say "slicks." Slicks will have NOT have reeded edges.)
Patina - Each Dealer's Choice coin is compared to the photographs taken and will be similar in contrast. Coins will have silver highlights and good shading, exhibiting an all around posh look.
Matching - Approximately 95% similarity between coins. Kennedy Coins are not pictured.
Dates - Sets will have various dates from 1930s, 40s, & 50s. (Barbers 1890s and 1900s) Similar decades and exact matching dates are always used in consideration of making sets, but there will most likely be several different dates found in each set.
Magical Touch - Excellent. These coins where chosen for magic by a professional who has performed for more than 20 years of his life. Each set has a been painstakingly examined specifically for sleight of hand. These coins look beautiful and your audience will appreciate them too! Take home a set of Dealer's Choice coins, they will serve you well for a lifetime!**

Please Understand: These are not collector's coins. They are chosen for sleight of hand performance.
Every coin is a historical artifact, so understand when ordering these sets, there will be ever so minor differences and they will not look identical to the coins in the pictures. That being said, Copeland works very hard to make these sets are perfect for their intended purpose: To Make Beautiful Magic.
It is simply not worth the time to be hassled with returns of coins that are not sufficient, so every coin is examined and tested to be up to all these high standards listed above before being shipped to you.
† Please note that the "Kennedy 40% Silver and Kennedy 90% Silver" coins will be much different than Walking Liberty or Barber Halves because they have very light circulation. Therefore they are not considered soft. The coins will wear down and become soft with years of loose pocket carry. (The 90% will do this much quicker than the 40%.) These coins were collected immediately and were not typically used for financial transactions; therefore they have not been smoothed and are not as soft, though they do exhibit the superior grip of real silver!
These coins are typically a beautiful, bight silver color without much toning. These coins are not old coins, but a great way to get real silver coins at a great price!
*Sets are sold complete and will not be broken apart. Requests for coins sets and individual coins are welcomed via email. Coins have not been cleaned and it is recommended that you never clean or polish your coins. Simply use them everyday and the silver highlights will become more brilliant naturally.
**These are Copeland Coins's independent ratings and are a subjective opinion. Buyer must understand this before purchasing and should feel free to ask questions before purchasing. Please contact Copeland Coins before ordering from outside of the United States to insure shipping is possible.
***While other coin venders may add on Insurance costs in extra fees, Copeland Coins includes this in the purchase price. It is mandatory for shipping valuable coins and will not be removed. Standard shipping costs, if applicable, may be be added on at check out as a normal purchase.
