I wanted to start a thread for a discussion about Norfed-Liberty Dollars.
I've always found these coins very intriguing and they sparked my interest. Technically they are called bullion, and I've also seen them be called bartering tokens. Of course, there aren't any new ones being produced, unless underground, due to the charges against the Liberty Dollar organization, because of the United States Government believing these dollars undermine the U.S. currency.
Do I believe that these dollars can undermine the U.S. currency? Yes I do, but not enough people know about them to do any real damage, and of course you have to pay a premium to get them, so doesn't make much since to use them for the purpose of trading, especially at face value.
I collect these just for the heck of it, I think the designs are beautiful, most of the designs being better than the dead guys we have on United States coins.
I do think they have some 'numismatic' value, only because the downright, hardcore, collectors of these dollars, pay buckoo bucks for some of them, and to some people these are just as collectible as I think they are.
I'll post one of my best ones, I didn't pay any premium for at all. (Let's say I know a guy or two)
This is also one of my best photos.
Post some of yours too, or post some comments questions. Let's get a discussion going!
