    I've seen plenty of Eisenhower dimes and even the occasional Franklin dime, but this is a first:

    1945-p(silver),1946,1947,1948,1959 Mercury Nickles

    Four "nickles", one of them silver, for just $80! But because I'm a good sport, I'll leave it for someone else to hit the BIN button.

    But, but I don't have them in my collection. I've gotta have them. It would be a great addition!

    I’ve got an 1865 Washington Dollar that I have coming in the mail. From a country that starts with a C and ends with an A, and I’ll give you a hint, it’s not Canada.
