    These are spectacular. I wonder, though, how hard it would be to view them in their frames, hanging on the wall. Looks like everyone would have to stoop close, like the lady in the last picture. P.S. – “Wheat-back” pennines, as my dad used to call them, are only collectible and/or valuable if there’s no letter under the date on the front (most commonly “D”).
