  • This was one of the special coins we handled in June - the finest graded by 2.5 points. 1875 $20 Gold PCGS MS-66+ CAC. It is the second-finest for a Type II $20. I was unsuccessful in tracking down a pedigree for the coin. It's one of those "freak" coins.

  • What do you think are the best looking USA coins? I know this convo has been had many a night, over and over, but I think one coin has been left out far too often - the 1836 Gobrecht Dollar.

    Its really impossible for me to pick just five so I would say these are my top 10 (not necessarily in this order and subject to change at any moment) Gobrecht Dollar, Draped Busts, Indian Gold Eagles, High Relief Saints, Buffalo Nickels, Morgan Dollars (Frosty DMPL's), Standing Lib Quarters, Merc Dimes, Coiled Hair $4, and last but not last, the Continental Dollar.

    Ok, lets hear your list...

    I have a 2009 Lincoln Pe1nny, no mint mark, with the Log cabin on the reverse side.On the obverse as well as the reverse this penny has errors when it was minted. On the obverse side where the word trust is printed, it has the words of America printed which is vaguely prominent when the coin is closely looked at. It is printed up side down and backwards. As well as the edge of the coin gradually goes flat and is quite thinner than the rest of the coin. On the reverse side where the word cent is stamped there is a very prominent ON printed which goes into the T and the N in the word cent. It also is printed upside down and backwards. It also has excess copper/bronze in that area. I am attaching pictures of the coin itself. I am trying to get confirmation that it is a legitimate 2009 Lincoln Penny, this is true minting/die errors. If so, I would like to get it certified and appraised so I can sell it at auction. I have contacted a few places and have been told that they have no interest in the coin because it does not fit their standards to look at in great detail because of the coin being a minting error and not a rare coin.

  • Trying something different. I used a random number generator to pick a number from 1776 to now. Using the number I will grab some photos off my computer of a couple coins that year. Here it goes, the number picked for me today was 1904. So here are couple pics I found when searching the old hard drive. The Morgan is a NGC 66*. Nickel a NGC 67CAM. $20 PCGS 65.

    I don't own any of these coins, I may have at one point. Oddly, The IHC was the toughest coin to find. Most pennies I saw were not very interesting so figured an old ACG coin was different.

  • Todays random year for coins is 1946. Definitely no shortage of images to choose from for this year with the regular U.S. issues and commems. Oddly enough the walker was the hardest one to find, not due to a lack of images but finding one that looked unique. Never found one. Commems were a different story, I had about 10 BTW's I wanted to post. So many with great color or a crazy pattern.

  • The random year that came up this morning is 1974. Who's excited? Not me. A date like this is sure harder to find interesting coins. A bulk of my search were Ikes but found a few others also.

  • Like everyone else who has a heartbeat, I've always thought old gold coins were awesome. I'm considering buying a Spanish 1772 8 Escudos but because my knowledge is limited to USA coins (even tho this one was used in colonial USA) I just don't feel I know enough about it to spend lots of $$$ on it. Whenever I'm buying a raw coin I'm not super familiar with i always like to verify die markings to make sure I know it's not a counterfeit. Has research been done for these coins? If so, where could I find it? It would be a couple weeks before I buy it, if I buy it, so I do have some time.

    The Henning Nickel
    Francis Leroy Henning was born in Erial, New Jersey on September 18, 1891. By the 1930s, Henning began his counterfeiting career by printing fake $5 bills, which at the time had almost the same purchasing power as modern $100 bills. Therefore, this was quite a serious counterfeiting threat. The appropriate authorities caught up to him relatively quickly, and Henning was tried, convicted, and sentenced to three years in prison. It is unknown (“accounts vary”) whether this jail time was served in

  • Random coin year for this week is 1903. Not a year where I start thinking Wow! monster colors coming but will see what I find.

    The $2.50 Gold I own and I am sure is PL. Graded NGC 64.
    Morgan is a 1903 PCGS 63PL.
    I dont remember the grade on the purple fireball IHC.
    $5 gold is a NGC 63 CAM.
    The last image of the $2.50 I shot in 2013. Dont remember where or whose it was, but it sure is cool.
