Eagle vision is about six times stronger than that of humans.
In addition, transparent nictitating membranes on their eyes allow eagles to blink without losing sight of prey for even a moment. The eagles claws are its key tool for hunting, nest building, and more.
Composed of three front toes and one back toe, all tipped with long keratinous talons, its claws are connected to tendons in the eagles legs and feet that allow it to clamp down on captured prey with crushing force. Once the hunter has spotted the days catch, it will dive at speeds in excess of 120 kilometers per hour, snatching its prey from the water or ground with lightning speed.
The eagle later uses a claw to hold its catch while tearing at it with its sharp curved beak to eat.

Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched. Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint.
They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc.
When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins.

Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera.
We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may resulting one side being slightly out of focus. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint.
