I have another tub of everything else Mexican, from 5 Centavo silver coins up to Cien Pesos silver coins and most everything in between.
I have a 1 Gallon Tabasco sauce jug full of '59 to '81 copper cents.
I have numerous Coffee-Mate containers of pennies marked Unsearched, Unsearched '83 + , Unsearched '81 -, Unsearched rolls, Ready to Roll(searched), errors, tones, NAs (non aligned), etc..
I have a USPS box of Canadian slabs and boxed commemoratives.
I have a Coffee-Mate tub of Canadian everything else from dimes to dollars.
I have a large number? of Austrian 5 and 10 Schilling coins. ( I like the horse on one and the maiden on the other.)
I have tubs for many different countries, none of which are full...yet.
The fact is, almost everything I have fits in the "quantity" category rather than the "quality" one.
However, I do have a few in the Quality category. One is an Italian 1 Marengo Isola D'Elba silver coin.
From the link :
Sunface in order chain.
Design is of the Isle of Elba.
Interestingly enough, this coin is listed in the Colin R. Bruce II catalog of
Unusual World Coins - it is listed as X# Tn11 - Isola D'Elba
But the listing is incorrect - in the catalog it states that the date for this coin is ND1998 (meaning, No Date, and date of issuance is 1998), but it is actually from 1971;
The reverse design is also incorrect , it states;
Castle with eight shields, name above. The only coin of this series that actually has that particular design is; ASIAGO, ITALY X# Tn11, and is the only one listed that shows a picture.
The value listed in the UWC catalog would be correct, as this coin is so rare and hard to find:
$65.00 in BU condition. "
I've looked it up on the Numista site before but can't find it there now. If I remember correctly, it has a NRI (Numista Rarity Index) of 85.
I like it a lot.
Have you searched them all? I'd be willing to help....... lol
@Hookman I am finding myself inexplicably drawn to the mexican coinage recently. Here are my latest acqusitions.
Overall though I have more Kennedy halves than anything else. NIFC's, minor toning, die cracks etc. And a pile of older worn out nickels. The other thing we hoard is unopened MWR of random coins.
@Pres in RVA and @Amos 811 -- almost 50,000 rolled. Mine were saved prior to 1982. Haven't figured out what to do with them, but if I end up in a wheel chair, searching them for errors, etc., is a possibility.
LOL. That must take a forklift to move.....if you ever do.
My Coffee-Mate tubs are heavy enough as they are, filled with pennies. I used to search, separate, then roll the "rejects" each day, then I slowed down on that process, and now I have stopped searching altogether and the "unsearched" tubs are building up.
Between my family, my part-time job, my eBay searching, and Coin Talk......I have no time left. lol
I just received a '34 Peso of the same type in the mail this morning. It's about the same condition. I got it for less than melt, and since I usually buy more than one item from each seller, the shipping costs spread out among the items, and so I'm still under melt on this one.
That's my goal : Collect silver, in the form of coins, as cheaply as possible, and any good numismatic results are simply considered a bonus.
these are all copper ones, the zinc i search real well before turning them in. I will search these 16 5 gallon pals once they stop making cents altogether, or I stop buying more to look through...
Wow... Just a favored year for you?
