I have a counterfeit coin

| I. R. Bama

A few years ago I began to take an interest in commemoratives and bought an Isabella quarter from the St. Louis World Fair.

I Shot Two Quarters

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Hi everyone, I wanted to post a blog but couldn’t really think of anything (considering I haven’t gotten any new coins recently) but then I remembered: back in the summer, I went to this camp which had a shooting range. They had some rifles but the sights were nowhere near accurate except for one gun which was almost dead on. They had a few shotguns too, but you had to score over 20 on 10 targets (you get five shots a target) to shoot one once. I got to shoot the shotgun cuz I shotthe targets. Anyways, I was bored of shooting cans and targets. Then I had an idea. What if I put coins up on the ledge and try to shoot them? So I started trying to shoot the coins whenever I could. I tested out all the guns (there were 9) and found out which ones were the most accurate. Turns out gun 4 was the most accurate, so I used that one. But there was a problem. If I tried to shoot the coin but missed (which happened a lot) then the coin would fall off the ledge and I had to set it back up after all of my shots (I had five shots each time). So I decided to put up two quarters so I had two tries. But that means I had three extra shots. So I shot the target for practice, then tried shooting the coins. A friend also tried to shoot them (one time he got 3 bullseyes and two 9 points [the circle outside the bullseye] so I thought he would be able to shoot the coins but he gave up after a little bit). But I kept trying. I must have shot at least 15 times (which means 75 bullets) before I finally hit a quarter. The first one I hit should be the first picture. I didn’t shoot the middle, but I did hit the rim (which bent it). So I kept trying to shoot the middle (I wanted to see if the bullet would puncture the coin). After a few more attempts, I shot the coin straight in the middle of George Washington’s face which means I hit the middle of the quarter. The bullet went through, and I picked up the coin. It looked really cool and the part that got punctured was sharp and poky. I was really happy after that (although I tried shooting a nickel but failed). That coin should be the second picture under this blog. Can someone tell me if shooting coins is legal? Because I don’t think it is (but I did it anyway). Thank you guys for reading, and I’ll see ya!

Beware of These Morgan's And Peace Dollars!!

Coins | Mike

Hello my friends. This is a warning about so called Morgan's and Peace dollars.The quailty of the pictures is bad.They were taken of the t.v.the show is C.S.N. The seller is Mike Muzak.. This man knew that the U.S. mint could not make these coins in 2022. This was due to lack of silver. He went to Fiji and had these so called dollars made in reverse proof. Now his first showing he said they will be gone by the end of the show. They made 5000 sets and 3500 sets from all the mints.. That was two months ago. He constantly states that our mint can not make these that these will be better than the sets coming out in 2023. P.C.G.S. refused to grade them. N.G.C a few. A.N.A.C.S. graded them all. So far not one 69!!! How did that happen. I'm sure there are some. Now collector's have bought them.I bet when they get them home they send them back. No were even though he said they are exact and experts say there better than our mint can make. Nowhere on these so called coins is the wording UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. not one coin not on reverse or obverse What you do see is FIJI and on the reverse the seal of FIJI. Now he claimed these are legal tender. Not by a long shot!. I sent an email telling him to look up the law on legal tender. He hasn't mentioned it again. These are cheap . The six coin set is 1150.00. Now like I said collector's bought these. They will not find them in the Red Book. Now I record the show he is on at 4:00am. Saturday and Sunday. It ends at 7: a.m. I have asked the mint to cut his allotment on any coin they can.This man thinks were all idiots. And those who bought them. Im sorry but he got you. E- Pluribus- Unium are on the coins and Liberty but that's it. Don't let anyone try and sell you these coins . Yes they will sell out. In 2029.!! He shouldn't be allowed to pass these of with our mint marks when they are clearly FIJI coins. Nothing to do with this country. Im glad P.C.G.S and N.G.C. did not grade these. He shows two from N.G.C. they started and stopped. People who buy on impulse took a hit with this coin. I have asked Mr..Muzak to melt them.. So please be careful. He bought every coin so you don't see them anywhere. Thank God. Imagine selling a coin as an American coin and not have that on the coin. There are no ordinary Morgan or Peace dollars. Just the reverse proofs which we will have next year. So buyer beware. I wish someone else would watch this show. D.V.R. it so you don't have to get up!! Take care! He will not show the reverse on his site!! He sells them on H.S.N. also!

The currency of Afghanistan is the Afghani. It has been quite an interest for collectors in Eastern Europe, Turkey and, the Americas.Mostly decorated with islamic motifs, lettering and linear designs, some brought exquisite caligraphy noted by enthusiasts.Another Afghan financial ministry trend has been the inclusion of some of the mountain range of this beautiful country, in many bill denominations as well as specific architecture significant to the population's beliefs and history.This 10 Afghanis note is a well kept example of the features described above. Enjoy it as part of my international currecy collections.

Do Yqou Believe Were Alone?

Coins | Mike

How is everyone doing? You have herd the question a thousand times. I watched a show after the football game. It was on aliens. Now I knew there was an area 51. We all know that story. Did you know about area 52? Well there is one in Nevada. What caught my eye is a family driving along a road took a wrong turn. They herd a large voice telling them to get out of the car with hands up! There were kids ther. ! ...What the government didn't know is this terrified family standing there was being filmed. It seems the gentleman doing the filming had discovered this area 52 A few years and watches it all the time. He has seen some strange things. And the people of the town and soldiers. He was shown by a soldier a bunch of guys . Behind them a flying saucer. Its located about 70 miles from area 51. ...Now to Canada. I believe they have had more sightings because of there night sky. You can count the stars. Now in 1996 Canada had its greatest sighting of a U.F.O. It happened on the Klondike highway. Very close to Shag Harbour. It is know as the worlds best documentedU.F.O. case. Witnesses were R.C.M.P.officers. Scores of fisherman and air line pilots flying at 33,000 feet Flashing lights moving at fast speeds Then it crashed into the water 300 feet triple the shore. At about 11: 20 a glowing orange sphere the size of a city buss slipped below the surface without a sound and it left an orange foam. They searched for days and found nothing. Five months before a man looking in the woods for a sphere his name was Stefan Michalaks. . He got to close and the ship emitted a gas. He shirt and chest were burned. Now the Royal Canadian Mint did a coin that glows in the dark. The dementioms are on the C.O.A. . it comes with a card in memory of the Queen. And a flashlight. A black light this way you can see what the witnesses saw. Now its not great taking a picture of it. I like turning out the light and seeing the most beautiful coin I have seen in a long time. Are they out there. You bet. Your talking about thousands of people around d the world. I think the one viewing in Brazil with six ships in the sky was the largest viewing and the video you can't explain. This goes back in our country when the ships crashed and bodies reportedly were found. The woods were sealed off not a piece of paper to indicate this occurrence. That debris was taken to arena 51. And the rumors started. Now an area 52 were there developing weapons from the ships in area 51. ....Think about it.To me there is just to much documented video and witnesses. And they all have seen the same thing from different angles. I do not believe we are alone. There is just to much. I did not believe it until I found out about area 52. There is just to much security. Threatening to shoot a family down. The little girl will never forget that. That's a shame. What do you think?
