Who I am and my experience with numismatics

An Affordable Two Cent Piece Series

| Well worn Copper

The British Caribbean Territories Eastern Group two cent pieces of 1955-1965 make and interesting and affordable alternative to the two cent pieces of the U.S. These 30.5mm bronze coins are slightly smaller than a U.S. half dollar and about the same diameter of the old English large pennies. They feature Queen Elizabeth on the obverse and can easily be found in circulated ($1-4) and uncirculated grades ($5-10). Proofs are particularly nice and certain dates can be purchased starting about $10. This mutual grouping of Caribbean islands was dissolved in 1965. In 1981 the East Caribbean States appeared on coinage and has ever since. The large bronze two cent piece was also replaced in 1981 with anunattractivesmaller square aluminum piece. When looking up coinage in the Krause Standard Catalog of World Coins, be sure to look under" East Caribbean States". I like this short series because they're fun and affordable. Unfortunately, I came across an entry in Wiki Coin Facts stating that these coins are "worthless in all grades." I feel sorry for whoever wrote that, because they are missing out on what collecting is all about.

New Set?

Coins-United States | JudeA

I am thinking about starting a new collection. I really like filling up folders of coins, and I like the design on the walking liberty half dollar. Most walking liberty's aren't very expensive, and the rare ones I wouldn't put in the folder. I feel like I could make a pretty good folder of walking liberty's by picking through my dealers junk silver bin. If you have any thoughts on this please tell me. Happy hunting!

In the Mean Time...

Coins-World | coinsbygary

Well it’s been a long time since I last wrote. Retirement has kept me pretty busy at my church having delivered the morning sermon last Sunday and again tomorrow. With all that I am doing, I have a whole new appreciation of pastors. However, I’m not writing about my outside exploits today but my numismatic ones.

I am going to keep this short as my hand has had some surgery. I was looking for a 1893 Morgan dollar for my type set album the other day. This coin is a bit pricey as there were only 378,000 minted in Philly. I ran into this cast hobo type dollar, I am calling it. I am a fan of the Mexican holiday of “Dia de los Muertos” or Day of the Dead, and Hobo Nickels after meeting "Tiny" at a Summer Seminar, so I picked it up.
