    Rodney Cole I do not keep error coins.

    Found my very first 1922 Peace Dollar over the weekend. May not be real pretty but she ain't ugly either.

    Imagine getting this in change at Taco Bell.

    I'd have to imagine buying food at Taco Bell. :yack:

    Maybe I can imagine I'm buying food for someone else at Taco Bell. And they gave me a $100 and asked me to bring them change. And when the register drawer opened, it was piled with Peace and Morgan dollars, and before the cashier started counting out 20s I said "I'll be happy to take those big heavy dollar coins you don't have a slot for..." :D

    Dream on. Taco Bell clerks would never know how to make change for $100.

    The register will tell them. I'll help them count if they need it. It's my dream.

    I also picked up a couple MS69+ 1987 Silver Eagles for $25 a piece, VF Morgan for $15 and 200 Mercury dimes $75 at the same stop.

    Yeah included was five 1916 Full Bands in almost perfect shape. They are already boxed up with five other coins ready to ship to out for grading.

    Me too, this is the only the second time I've had coins graded. The first time I sold em two months later and paid off our house and truck. Wife is happy and I now have extra money for flipping and collecting. The wife actually supports my "boring" hobby now and even brings coin rolls home for me from the bank.

    30+ years ago Taco Bell was very good. It's when they became part of the Pepsi-KFC conglomerate and started using sawdust and mutant genomes for food that it got bad.
    How can you get 200 Mercury dimes for $75 when the silver value alone of 200 dimes is currently just under $400.
