    I didn't find anything today, so i bought some stuff. They all happen to be of the 5 cent variety, lol. The buffalos are pretty common, just always enjoy their look.

    I didn't have a '37. Was asking 2 bucks. I did a multiple item purchase. Total below.

    These are more my concern.
    I didn't have time to research, so i impulse bought. He swore this was a rare date. I couldn't even see the date.

    Looked like something someone dug up. Was asking 20 for this. 1874. Help identifying this would be much appreciated, lol. I'm not finding anything

    I know 1950d is "rare". I can clearly see that the steps have dings in them.

    I'm thinking the same thing, :mad:. At least i didn't pay the 48 he was originally asking.

    These purchases drive me nuts. I had 30 bucks burning a hole in my pocket after getting skunked today. I'd rather buy from someone here but it takes too much time for someone with the patience of a flea, like me. So i bought junk again, instead of something of quality here. My amateur is on high view again today.

    1874 Shield Nickel is not a rare date and books for around $30.00 in good. This one of yours is damaged. I would not have paid more than a few dollars for it and then, only to fill a space.

    Thank you. I was thinking it wasn't anything special.

    Maybe he thought it was an 1871. Not rare but a better date, unfortunately it IS a 74.

    A beat to heck 1874, lol. Was hoping the '50d might make up for it, but that's nothing special either. Oh well, next time.
