1922 Peace Dollar error? by [email protected]
Took photos of this recently, and had to look again. 1922 Peace Dollar. Looks like a lot of cuds and rim cracks. Photos: http://community.webshots.com/album/577322307BLUtcb Daniel B. Wheeler

Halves still (randomly) getting confused as dollar coins by Duh_OZ
Happened again today at a thrift store. Bill was $4.95 so I hand over 2, $2's and 2 halves. The halves go under the till and the cashier hands me $1.05 in change. I explain those were half dollars so she lifts the till, looks them over and I hand back the $1. Then she takes the halves and...

US Mint come through by Scurvy Dog[_2_]
I rec'd my War Vets and Boy Scout BU dollars within 10 days of ordering them. Both appear to be MS70, since I can't seem to spot a single flaw on them under 10X magnifcation. Well done, US Mint.

Summer ANA's to Stall in Chicago by Nick Knight
Did anyone notice the ANA press release announcing that they are going to have the summer ANA shows in Chicago permanently after the current schedule is complete (which includes one Chicago show anyway)? I haven't seen any comments, but perhaps we're too busy chit-chatting :) (or perhaps only...

My latest coin acquisition by Mr. Jaggers
The Connecticut state coppers were dated 1785 through 1788, and comprise pieces made from well over three hundred die pairs. They were made by various individuals with varying degrees of skill under varying conditions. Poor workmanship and materials plague these coins, and the survivors attest to...

Albums? by dlhii
Hello I recently purchased a partial album of silver eagles. The album is a 'mint' album I think maybe Harris made them, there are green tarnish spots on a couple of the eagles. I have the balance to complete the album but am cautious due to the tarnished coins. I like the concept of the album,...

PING: jamesdurham by Mr. Jaggers
Congratulations on your lucky find of a 37-S Lincoln. Those were not commonly found even 50 years ago, when I was doing the same thing that you are doing. To answer the question you posed in another venue, I am not collecting Lincolns any more, but am concentrating on "colonials", those...

PCGS Secure Plus by Michael Benveniste[_2_]
Did anyone notice the teaser blurb for PCGS's "new" SecurePlus service? http://www.pcgs.com/secureplus.html Quoting: Imagine a world without coin doctoring. Imagine a world without "gradeflation." It seems to me the whole idea behind "plus" grading is to get people to resubmit their coins so...

PVC or not PVC? That is the question. by Michael Benveniste[_2_]
This wasn't exactly a shining moment for me in coin photography. In fact, I was blowing off a couple of shots of film using a very odd combination of equipment. (Nikon F100, Ektar 100, a Pentax(!) 120mm f/4 Macro, and a pair of supposedly daylight balanced fluorescents). As a result, the color...

Precious Metals by Jud
A bit of a spike this morning for silver and gold. And yes, Petronius, I know that others know how to access prices...but when I see that they have gone up or down quickly, timing can be everything!

Obama Sells Out The USA by Scurvy Dog[_2_]
Obama heeded the call of his masters in the Kremlin and announced that the USA would not use its nuclear weapons EVEN IF ATTACKED. So go ahead Russia, bomb New York - Obama won't do a goddamn thing. Obama must be impeached and put on trial for what he is - a traitor.

Shield nickel struck thru cloth by [email protected]
Today I received an Ebay purchase of 2 Shield nickels. I was especially curious about one, which is atypical. I took it to a local coin dealer, who declined to speculate on what it was or what it was struck on. I have not photos, yet, on the coin. One side is described as an 1873 "closed 3" in VF+...

which countries remove legal tender status from old currencies? by yawnmoth
It's my understanding that in the United States, even now obsolete bills, like the $500.00 Federal Reserve note, are still legal tender even though they haven't been printed in decades. What about other types of currency, like United States Notes or National Currency? Are those still legal...

To Neg or Not to Neg by Scurvy Dog
Won a coin on eBay from a seller in Toronto Canada (I'm in the USA (NY)). After charging me $10 for "Express Mail", this dealer sat on his ass for a week before mailing the coin, which then took another 10 days to get here. To top it off, the coin was poorly packed and the slab had scotch tape...
