It seems there are virtually no counterfeit Bust halves out there. That’s why I wanted to have a look at the “coin”, to see if it’s close to the real deal or not. It isn’t
It's 50mm dia., serial numbered, lacquered pewter I believe. It's an amazing replica of actual survey bench marks found across the US.
Has anybody seen anything similar?
As a long-time map geek (currently in semi-remission), I love this.
It's the actual size, and I'm assuming weight, of an actual bench mark survey marker.
I had to have it when I saw it. I've seen many NOAA bench marks in the wild.
1843-O Seated Dime $31
Mintage 150k, considered a semi key date

I’d put it in the book backwards
Love those parking lot cents

And I'll post something that's neither US, or a coin, so I might get kicked out of the "Under $50" club on principle.
This was $44, and I have no idea if that is a good or bad price on it. But the bored look of the woman on the left got me to pull the trigger (she is the personification of Commerce it seems? https://en.numista.com/catalogue/note206031.html)
Most of them were pretty common fair stuff (outside of VF 1924, 1925, and 1928-s) but really liked this 1929-S that came with it.
Slightly better date in a slighter better (XF-AU) condition, it stayed in the album with all my other transfers from the Whitman. If you discount the price of what a used Dansco seems to go for (around $25) then I paid just about $50 for the nickels or a little over a dollar a piece. Not too bad.
Most are going in the Dansco. Also came with an AU 1936-D, 1937, and Unc 1938-D. Love the 1935's toning.
