Very cool finding that Booker T. Washington in a roll!!
how do I get to general discussion
From Erin's description, it was not a Booker T Washington Commem, it was a Washington/Carver Commem (with both of them).
Pics of the Commemorative
First ever attempt at pics of a coins so here goes. Hopefully it looks ok. What do you guys think? Found in a roll of halves...
I have no idea if these will even do it justice but very easy to read the coin.
Ok gang that was my first attempt at taking and posting a pic here. Give me some feedback or point me to where I can get advice on how to photo and post the coins here.
Actually, your pics are just fine, and blow up well. No problems.
Not much luck in the pennies - searched 36 rolls
3 Wheats, 2x 45d, 1x 56d
Was starting to get frustrated with my nickel box, too but it ended well...
3 prewar - 2x 39, 1x 41
1 x canadian
and, with three rolls left there was a 1927 buffalo
My first one from rolls!
Probably not worth more than a dollar, but a lot more exciting to me than finding the cud penny a couple of weeks ago.
Never thought I'd draw a buffalo nickel from circulation, but there it was!
P.S. Because I'm strange, I keep all nickels from before 1970. I notice that I find an inordinant number of 1964 and '64d. So I look up the mintage to see that the US minted more nickels in '64 than any other year before or since. Does anyone know why they did this?
A thread on which this is talked about: http://www.cointalk.com/t52021/
Thanks for the note, Wiggam. The other thread pretty much says the same thing... The mintage was high. But only speculation as to why. Interesting, though.
Went through a box of pennies today and found the following
2 1952 Canadian Penny
2 Canadian Comm.
1957 Canadian Penny
UNC 2004, 2005, 2006 Canadian Pennies
3 Rail Splitters
2 Log Cabins
2 1950 Wheat Pennies
I would say that this was a good box also 1 of the 1940P pennies I found had a reverse of a UNC. 1958D which I thought was cool
One of your 1940P cents had a reverse of an UNC 1958D? dd:What exactly is that?
it had a UNC look on the back but the front had a few black smudges
I found a corroded 1911 cent a nice 1937-s and a
just finished a bag of nickels and snagged 1 silver wartime a 1943-S
8 rolls of cents:
1 wheat, 3 log cabins, 5 log splitters
1 box of halves:
Bobbeth do you know what your total for silver finds is? It seems like your adding more just about every day. Nice finds!
Nice finds lincolnhoardr,still looking for my first WAM.The 1911 find is pretty cool too.I found the cruddiest 1914 p you'll ever see a couple weeks ago. It's amazing you can still find that old a coin in circulation.
Here's my find over the weekend. 1995 doubled die(wavy steps).
I started roll searching and bank scavenging for halves around May. I started a spreadsheet of my finds:
27 boxes searched, plus $1154 in loose rolls and loose halves
28 1964 Kennedys (Total of 38 90% silvers)
137 1965 - 1970 Kennedys
1 1976 S Kennedy (Total of 138 40% silvers)
Total silver coins 176
I feel extremely fortunate. I never dreamed there was that much silver out there...
