    I paid a little over the going rate for this half, but I've never regretted it. 50-1834-Obv.JPG 50-1834-Rev.JPG

    The coin that is my favorite has nothing to do with rarity, value, grade or other numismatic descriptions. It is purely because it is the coin my Father bought as a gift to me from a coin shop in Vancouver. My Mother had to post it to me because he was taken ill the next day and died shortly after. Wish he could have seen the joy it brought me and I could have said thank you in person.

    I would say it would be this 1982 LD copper MAD woody LMC that was my first post on a thread I started on Jan 21 2019. Two years ago on January 9, 2019 I joined CT; I had been lurking for a few months prior. Paddyman98 gave me my first like and told me it was a mis-aligned die strike. Badthad gave me some awesome feedback and encouragement. Because of that and what I learned about the 1982 cents, I will never forget the start of my journey here on CT. I have many more coins and many more valuable coins with similar examples of learning from posting on this site; but this was the first. (I need to re take the photos; out of capsule and better focus on the reverse). Polish_20210105_152911875.jpg

    I found this quarter cleaning out the attic today. Found a few silver coins as well, but this is the coolest.

    This is up there for me as it was a gift from a friend. And the coin is quite nice too. :)

    My favorite U.S. coin is my 1912 D Liberty V Nickel. My mother wore it in her shoe in 1930, when she and my father got married. I don't have a picture of it. It's not in my possession, right now. But, it's in good hands until I do get it back. When my son got engaged, I told him about the coin, and offered it to my future daughter-in-law to wear in her shoe, if she was interested? She said she would be honored. But, I was more honored, because she, and my son, asked me to perform the wedding ceremony! So, she is now family, and dearly loved. The closest I can get to posting a picture of the coin is this. It's in her left shoe, lol! I know, you can't see the coin, and you can't see her shoe, but, trust me, it's there! 20210105_201947.jpg

    Does it have to be a coin? I have hundreds of coins and have many that I enjoy but for some odd reason I am more fond of these three guys. They aren't money so the only reason they exist is to honor the person. All 3 of these guys changed the world, one paying the ultimate sacrifice for doing so. They have provoked more thought than any coin I own with the one on the right being my favorite.

    To me if it weren't for Sir Isaac Newton,
    Ben Franklin should be the most interesting guy in the world.

    I've posted this one here before. It's a favorite for the chuckle factor and the family connection. I got it from my grandmother around 1972, and it likely came from the guy below, my great-x-grandfather Civil War veteran. It sat in my collection for over 40 years before I determined that it is a contemporary counterfeit.

    Am I mistaken or is that Lady Liberty in the background?

    And every time you view the coin, you think of your Father. :)
