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+...

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...

How much is enough? by Peter[_6_]
I purchased an 18th century Spanish 2 Reales coin from eBay. When I look at it (and I've seen a number of genuine examples -- from the Spanish mint even) it looks genuine. As I put it up on the shelf, it seemed just a little light. I weighed it (it is 5.53 grams rather than 6.77) and it is...

Got a 2009 Sackie @ the Post Office by Scurvy Dog
I spotted in the cash draw while buying stamps and asked for it in change. The clerk was relieved to get rid of it. Turns out there is faint doubling of the edge lettering.
