I've actually even had a few Eisenhower dollars come through when I still worked at the grocery store.
Last time I got one was in 1921 found it in the coke machine,time sure does go by fast.
Back in '21, you could have bought a LOT of cokes for a buck. My earliest recollection, early '50's, Cokes were a nickel each (but you had to have return bottles). You're right, time goes by FAST!
Found it just a walk in the woods I want my money back!!!!.
@techwriter . That's exactly how I got my last Two .
You were as likely to get a silver dollar in change as get a paper dollar.
It’s worth more in an antique shop. Lol
I paid for shipping at the post office the other day and pulled out a big sack of coins. The postal worker said to me, "Oh you're not going to pay me in dollar coins, are you?" I said, "No, of course not. These are half dollars."
Dollar coins have been popular only on a sporadic basis. The pre Civil War gold dollars were popular because their value was evident. The dollar bills that the banks issued needed a scorecard.
The early dollars saw some use, but given grades we see today, most coins in VF, their use was limited. You seldom see one that is worn down to VG or Good. For whatever the reason, the U.S Government has never found the right formula for a one dollar coin.
I can sense you folks don't believe me.
...back in '21 your dad wasn't even born...
