Found my coin (most likely) in a 1942 Lot of Mehl's Catalog!

Thanks to Aaron Berk for the info on how to locate this fast and easy!

To have the envelope was nice, to point it to Mehl's catalog is just wonderful.

@Nerosmyfavorite68 "Fine"  was  actually Mehl's highest grade. He did not use aF or XF. I was wondering the same until I read more about him.  I suppose "Fine" was a standard back then on ancients? Or maybe it was a Mehl thing. 

 

Edit: As Donna pointed out, there is a VF in the same posting. Strange because I read this somewhere the other day.

He did use Very Fine, as is evident from the photo you posted of the relevant catalog page.
