Can anyone tell me which of the gaffed coin makers offer a Walking Liberty Gravity Flipper with an internal band and milled edges on the insert?? I'm guessing Schoolcraft and Lassen, but what about the others?

Thanks!

Just discovered Kueppers has one, but not a fan of his. Mark Mason has many coin options but I can’t confirm if any fill my need? Same with Tango.

I'm pretty sure that the one that Mark Mason supplies doesn't have milled edges on the insert.

Tango "pro" gravity flippers have a "real edge".

Get a Lassen if you can find one.

Another thing that I'm looking for is a gravity flipper with a "heads" insert. They all seem to be tails inserts.

Wouldn't that result in a two headed coin? Or you mean just the reverse of what the normal thing is.

I'm just guessing but I wonder if the fact that most coins have a more busy pattern on the back is a factor. That is, for hiding the line.

I agree. I can't recall ever seeing a flipper made that way, but it might be possible with a Kennedy Half using a "profile cut" along the right side of the bust like on many folding coins.

It seems to me that the cut line could be covered pretty well if made where the figure on the coin is walking. Plenty of images clustered in that area. My reason for wanting this version is so that I can us my tails expanded shell with it.

Mark Mason said he would make one as a custom order. Problem is he doesn't re-mill the insert edges on any of his coins, so it won't work for me. I've got a request into Schoolcraft.

So I can say while I fully support Schoolcraft and own several of his products...the ngf from mark is a unique piece of art. I was skeptical at first of the insert not being re-edged but I can fully say no one has noticed other than my own ocd. That flipper is worth every penny

Update: after ordering one for myself, Jamie can make a double header or tailed flipper
