PING: oly by Mr. Jaggers
A dealer friend and I were discussing the later coins of Scotland, and we were both unable to account for the ratio of the Scottish shilling to the British shilling, which seems to have been in the neighborhood of 24 to 1. So, can you verify that to have been the exchange rate in the 1600s, and...

New US Mint Laser Frosting... by MKW
is it just me or does the new laser frosting technique look kinda wierd? What happened to doing it the old way with a polisher and masking tape to mask out areas for blasting? The Boy Scout design looks particularly bad with the laser frosting.

Liberty nickels? by thermo102
First, I'm not a collector and don't think I want to get into it at this time. That said, I was recently given some coins which I believe were 'randomly' kept by some of my in-laws. (now deceased) The nickels caught my attention because I had never seen one before! The dates a 1906, 1911,...

Can anyone identify a coin(s) for me please? by Onderbaadjie
First, you will have to know about Asian Coins, it is "brass" looking, is 2 cm across and a 5 mm hole in the center. There are 2 characters on the bottom of one side and some type of grain like wheat or rice bent into almost a half circle above the 2 characters. On the reverse, 3 slightly larger...

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.

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...
