Deja Vu All over Again?

| Well worn Copper

I was waiting in the Burger King drive-thru today (bad habit, I know) and going thru my pocket change. I came upon the new 2019 Guam War-In-The-Pacific quarter when I suddenly felt deja vu. Where had I seen this before I wondered? Then it hit me: The 1991 Korea War Commemorative Silver Dollar! When you look at both coins side by side, there appears to be a resemblance. Is it possible the mint subconsciously "recycled" a variation of one of its own designs, 28 years later? Does anyone else see it?

2009 Bicentennial Mint Set

| JudeA

Recently ordered a 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial mint set off of Amazon, first experience with ordering off Amazon and it went pretty well. Got the package at the expected time. Opened it, the set contained the original box and COA. Only problem was that the presidency reverse had a stain on it, probably from climate changes. Otherwise I am satisfied and am happy to add this to my collection!

Star Note Lookup Info

Paper Money-U.S. | user_17552

I have decided to research. I have learned a lot since looking into star serial number paper currency. I have always loved star bills, as some call them, but now I understand better how their value works. Star serial numbers are created when a bill of a certain serial number has to be destroyed because it had an error. Since the government doesn't allow the same number to be used twice, a star is added instead of the letter that was once there.

Roll searching - Part 2

Coins | JudeA

I went to my bank and got a $25 box of cents (I know how you all like to use cents instead of pennies). It is the box with holes in it so I look through it and I see a wheat cent ender with great luser! Got home and opened the box and kept back that roll, another wheat ender, and a lincoln bicentennial ender back till the end.Here's the final count on what i found.Wheat Cents - 8 Oldest was a 1939 also found a 1955 d with great luser! 2 enders!Lincoln Bicentennial - 14 Most of them (8) were the formative years reverse, but I got all of the reverses! 1 ender!Canadian Coins - 3 Oldest was a 1969, I also got a 125th anniversary canadian cent!Dimes - 3 For some reason this box had 3 dimes in it, no key dates or proofs.Copper cents Almost a full jar of copper cents, and a pile of 1982's to weigh!Very fun box! Nothing of value but still exciting, no doubling on the Lincoln Bicentennial either, but i'll keep searching!

Thank you World’s Fair of Money Chicago, August 13 – 17, 2019

World's Fair of Money | ANA Official Post | ANAStaff

The American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money Convention (WFOM) was held for the 14th time in Chicago, Illinois, on August 13 – 17, 2019. The actual site was the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois which is very close to Chicago O’Hare airport. We have been writing about major conventions for a long time, and this one had to be near the top of all that we have ever attended. In grading terms this was an MS 70 convention which saw a convention drawing in 7,000 visitors, which included the ANA staff, volunteers and exhibitors. One-thousand dealers were also registered (including early birds), and 1,000 tables were setup in the very large convention center. We have attended and wrote about many national conventions for well over a decade and this has to be one of the busiest conventions we have ever attended and even with the admission charge for non-members (discount coupons were available at the ANA web page). When the doors opened on Tuesday, several hundred people were waiting in a line to get into the show. The registration lines were also very busy to get a wrist band to get into the show. After the doors opened, public traffic was busy for the entire run of the convention. If you attend any ANA convention for two days, it pays to be an ANA member, and the cost for adults (18 and over) is only $28 for an online membership. Visit www.money.org for information on membership. It is too bad that a lot of the people waiting in line could have entered the convention a half hour early as a benefit of ANA membership. Everyone who registered received the official “Show Guide” which contained 88 pages, along with a well-done cloth bag which was sponsored by eBay and CDN Publishing.

Coin Book Review: Coin World Guide to U.S. Coins, Prices, & Value Trends, & 1 more

Young Numismatists Exchange | ZanzibarCoins

Hey y'all! Here are two more book reviews. :) The first one is called theCoin World Guide to U.S. Coins, Prices, & Value Trends. It is by William T. Gibbs, Steve Roach, and the Coin World Valuing Team. It may not be about one single coin, although it does fulfill part of the "buy the book before the coin" saying. As the title says, it is a value guide, although it is not really just a long boring list of prices for coins. (boring depends on your point of view though, really) :) There are illustrations throughout the book, and there are short, well, not exactly stories, although some could possible count for that, information about the majority of the coins that it talks about. It is a very helpful book for anyone looking to purchase a coin. It gives you the ability to see what the coin you are thinking about buying is really worth, and whether the price for that coin might possibly rise in a few years. You can also see whether or not there might be a market for your coin in a few years, through the tracking of "trends" in the coin market. It may not be focusing on one coin, or just a few coins, or one series, or anything like that, but it is a helpful book for anyone going to a coin show or an auction.
