Cent Melt by dlhii
I did some searching to try and figure out if the government had a cent melt in 1943. About all I was able to find was the current 'new' law about melting. I found steel was used because of a copper shortage but nothing about a possible melt. Just something that was rattling around in my head.

Q's abuot selling U.S. silver by Al Dykes
I have about 10 pounds of US silver coinage collected from circulation when that was possible. I'd like to cash it in. With my luck, I don't expect any of the coins are rare. Compared to being sold by weight, how much of a collectible value over face value does a coin have to be worth selling...

http://www.mydollarplan.com/new-100-dollar-bill/ I was a little disappointed with the back of the new $100 at first, because I thought the low-vision numeral would be similar to the $10, $20 and $50's, but now I grew to love both sides of the new $100 bill and the $100 is now by far, my favorite...
