What is it?

| Well worn Copper

Recently purchased this coin (?) on a whim and it has really stumped me. Can't find out anything about it anywhere. It is the same diameter of a cent. Any information, leads, speculation, or outright guesses would be truly appreciated. The seller didn't know anything about it either. By the way, I purchased it for one dollar. I suppose sooner or later every collector buys something they know absolutely nothing about, in the hopes of finding out everything, and this is one of those times......

Pictures

Coins | Mike B

Well the problem continues. I'm very sorry I can't share with you the tokens in that Conder set i haven't received it from the auction house but there three thousand miles away. It will go directly to NGC. So i will have it in my hands about two months from day of sale . I will have it for a day. The form and box are filled out just need that token. When I have it and I say two weeks. I will take a picture of it raw. I hope that the problem is fixed by then. I feel totally useless try doing a blog on your favorites. For instance Many and his beautiful medals how do you think he would feel. How about longstrider we call him the vam man. We would not get to see those rare mistakes. It's like my hands have been cut off. Now I'm writing this to let you know I did try to write a blog on a coin and I just couldn't do it. You can't help but feel the frustration someone goes through. You never would of never see the blue prints of a British war ship. A ms66 Morgan dollar. I'm glad they are working on it but while that goes on you don't know how close or far away they are. I was told it was on my side four devices all loaded manually and one is a week old still doesn't work all these years with no problem. Kindle took over my device and said it's like new. But it was strongly suggested the by the ANA i get a new one so it would work. I feel like I'm looking for 272 again so I apologize for this delay I'm sure they will figure it out. Whatever man makes will break down so you can say I have been lucky all these years. That's another way. I miss the history and research that I write for you guys and gals and my self. But it's out of my hands as i said I know they will find it i don't blame no one but gremils. They didn't do this on purpose. And there sharp. I hope to write again the way I did. So you can enjoy my blog instead of this. I pray it doesn't happen to anyone else. No more like this I hope the next one will be of more interest for you and me. Without you picking up the slack I can still read a blog and enjoy a coin or medal. So bear with me. I promise the next blog will have pictures and history and reserch. Take care.I miss your comments I learn from them.also. Mike

Who Wears it Best? 4

| Big Nub Numismatics

This is the final article in a series of four which spanned about a hundred years of designs, denominations, and history.Throughout our nation's history, our coinage has shared the same design in and between denominations. Fro the draped bust designs to the barber designs that were so captivatingly simple, yet regal in nature. Each denomination and design gives us a new perspective on how well the design works, feelsand shares the story behind. From half cents to dollars and beyond, the size, composition, and denomination playa big role in this, but the question remains; Whowearsit best?

Numismatic Book Review-Numismatic Art in America: Aesthetics of the United States Coinage

| Big Nub Numismatics

The book, Numismatic Art In America: Aesthetics of the united states coinage was written by Cornelius Vermeule. This book features how dominant the beauty of United states coinage, medals, commemoratives and tokens are. From the great engravers, sculptors, and designers to made them, to the stories of inspiration and superiority. It is over 300 pages, so a good book to sit and read for two days, or while sick. It features over 400 full-color pictures, illustrating the stories and coinage that it talks about. This book focuses on mainly the artistry of the design/designers, and pretty much overlooks the history in the coinage, other than the order in which they came. This is the best book for getting deeper into understanding these famous designs. I would recommend this book to anyone, it is fairly cheap, costing only around $25. I would give it 5/5 stars, it is well written and will keep you engaged and informed.

Join A Club, Join PAN

Club Exchange | Just Mokie

The most recent ANA blog, published today, advocates a number of things to include getting involved with local clubs. One affiliation I am very proud of is my affiliation with the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN). Pan has two large shows each year in the Spring and Fall and also sponsors, at each show a day devoted to our YNs. There are freebies and educational forums and a youth auction on Saturday. I have already volunteered to take over the YN outreach going forward. I was a YN at one time and remember the many kindnesses I experienced at coin shops and from older folks giving me coins. If you live in Pennsylvania and have not joined PAN, please consider it. If you attend the National Money Show, look for me at the PAN booth. or in the exhibit area.
