If you spend you money submitting worthless coins, you will never be king of anything besides the trailer.
Sometimes I see some great looking quarters in mint sets. Is it reasonable to pop them out if they are real nice? Or, are you better off to leave them in the mint package?
I can't answer that for Mint Sets because I've never bought them to search for high grades. Business strikes in bags and rolls are much cheaper to buy from the Mint, and you have a lot more coins to examine. ~ Chris
Right Chris, that is probably more interesting. I have found some nice coins in mint rolls. I just finished going through a bunch that I had bought back in the 50's and 60's. Thanks.
I found this coin in a $100 Mixed P&D bag that I bought from the Mint for $135.00. It's individual cost was 68c.
Nice. I didn't realize that you could buy a mixed bag from the mint.
The Half Dollar bags come that way ....
Someone correct me if I'm wrong! @Clawcoins ? I believe that the 2001P&D Kennedy bags were the first attempt at this marketing program, but they weren't released until 2004.
There was quite a hubbub raised over the 2001 Kennedys because there were some unique errors (besides the missing clad layer) created during the press runs. ~ Chris
I would appreciate seeing some of your nicer finds from those old rolls. Maybe you could post a few.
Thanks. I will pull some out and post them.
I am having problems with my camera this morning. New fangled technology is way out in front of me. Hope to get it working soon.
Just ask one of your many grandchildren for some help. Lol
I was just hoping one would come by for a Sunday visit. Even if my son would come by it would help.
I understand. Lol
My microscope isn't working yet, but, here are some macro pics. A roll of 1958-D and 6 1964-D from the same roll with identical die cracks on the reverse. The crack goes through the T in STA in STATES. I will post a close up when I can. The 58-D's are some nice coins. I haven't searched them for variations yet. I picked up some rolls in 1958 when I heard about the pending change for 1959. I have some rolls of 1964 Canadian Cents that I picked up in 1964 that I haven't gone through yet. Many others.
