    Hey Folks, just a reminder to please get me your descriptions in by the 15th. I intend to consolidate and edit what is in on the 16th and go from there. If you haven't joined in on the fun or already have and want to do another description, please message me!

    Let me know if you still need a 3" replica of the 1927 SLQ, I'd be happy to order it and ship it directly to you.

    I do have one of each, but can always use duplicates so more than one person could hold the same coin. Just so you know, if you buy in bulk, you get a bigger discount :angelic:

    It wouldn't be reasonable of me to handle the Morgan Dollar if I were not also willing to take care of the Peace. @Cascade, this is where you step in for the Ike & Bicentennial...

    Okay folks, we are moving along, thank you to all of those who have been involved so far and please keep volunteering! I have the following descriptions in so far:
    $20 St Gaudens
    1916 D Mercury Dime
    2000 P Sacagawea Dollar
    Flying Eagle Cent
    Indian Head Cent
    Walking Liberty Half Dollar.
    This sheet has most of the legwork done, all you need to do is the description, why it was minted in the first place, and some fun facts:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1uPDDFNHLsRZ4zzEu5pWEFTcaTPWLE6Y8NuZb9RpKq4o/edit?usp=sharing
    Also, I just messaged everyone who volunteered but hasn’t submitted yet, I’m hoping to get those submissions by the end of the week.

    I have been watching this post and wish I could have helped! It looked so FUN! I do hope you DO post some more pictures of the event when it does happen! I enjoyed the Pictures you posted of the visually impaired on the initial inspection process. I ran to my little bucket to see if I had what you needed! However, as I scrolled down, being a youngin...well..we all have dreams. I just know I have something somewhere that IS GOOD!

    My public library has a 3d printer. Do you need these 3 bicentennials 3d printed? If so what size? Both sides? I am not sure how it works, however I will look into it.

    ACoinJob Last years quarter dollar finds from roll hunting:

    I was hoping to make a 3D printed $0.99 cents change holder for freebies, and perhaps coin factoids on it for the rarer small cents with "Close and Wide AM", and the quarters... (3) 1/4$'s, (2) nickels, (4) small cents, (1) thin dime. Something kids can look forward too. I like what you're presenting for the children. I would suggest getting familiar with, and by reading literature about coins.

    Forgive me ACoinJob, I am only trying to help. Yes, I am new to coins. I do have my Red book and have been reading it. If you are looking for a small pinch plastic change holder for the kids for your $0.99 Idea, I would suggest Oriental Trading company. As far as a Bifold starter factiod coin slot, you are best to look on the back of the manufacture of some of the ones that you may already own of the more advanced ones. I am certain they would be willing to donate to the cause. Also, Discovery is also a place to look for donations for items like that.

    UPDATE: to ACoinJob, the coin "purses" are now considered vintage. They are very expensive. Even made to order. Loved your Idea!

    ACoinJob Last years quarter dollar finds from roll hunting:

    I used to have a change purse pinch type. I used to colllect them as well. I lost track of them over the years, but also wanted to help. I was offering a 3D printed solution to having a 3D printed loupe on a Credit Card sized holder, with flip open factoid sheets, so as to teach young ones what to look for with examples. I will post a photo of my 2D drawing in my profile for starters. Thanks for the heads up.
