Today I would like to share a very special coin I just received. I saw these on a coin group on Facebook. The guy selling is named Joe Poanessa but, as you will see, he is out of them.

Heraldic Art Medals by Robert McNamara

Exonumia | Golfer

So-Called Half Dollars & Heraldic Art MedalsWanted to write about the Heraldic Art Medals. I don't have the complete set as of yet. But wanted to post some pictures of non-graded pieces I have. I got interested in these last year and really enjoy them. The story behind them is really interesting. I have included a couple links if you wish to learn more. The pieces in the pictures are from 1963,1964,1968,1969,1971,1974. 18 pieces out of 60 regular pieces in the 60 piece regular set. Will try to post a part two version with some of my NGC graded pieces. You can go to the NGC site and see a nice registry set if you like. I have purchased a few pieces from a Mr C. Smith who is selling some of his extra pieces. Mr Smith has the finest NGC registry set or any set assembled of these medals.

Merry Christmas

2020 started out bleak from a Numismatics standpoint. I had been collecting coins since the 1960s, but didn't have a clue.

A Purpose Served

Exonumia | Long Beard

War tokens, as they were referred to when issued, have transformed into what the numismatic community calls Civil War tokens. While this title may be aptly appropriate given when they were struck, the subset category bearing merchant name or address seem to fall under the same. Tokens bear a patriotic design, as shown in the first two images. Store cards, while the obverse may be similar to that of tokens, bear the merchant, his goods or services and an address. Being as both served the same purpose it is easy to understand the confusion. Although many in the coin collecting hobby have heard of these, perhaps in their possession, the focus of this weeks blog looks into the origin. Enjoy!

about my birthday part 2!

Exonumia | walking liberty

Part 2 of my birthday story. So I got $30, new camo bedding, a Ford sign, 7 V nickels, and a box of candy canes! The cool thing about the 7 V nickels is that they were a grab bag and there were only 2 repeating dates! most of the time they are all the same. Well that's all I have for you today. have a good day!

about my birthday part 1

Exonumia | walking liberty

hello everyone! Like i said in my post about birthdays, my b-day is December 16 and I am turning 14. I am doing a part 1 and two because I have got some other things to say. I have only got 2 gifts early. Yesterday I got a coin collecting album (picture will be the cover of this post) and I got a water bottle that was custom made about my favorite truck brand Ford. The other thing I wanted to talk about is that on December 14th I went to a coin shop and got some things. i got some world coins from a 15 cent bin then I got two British seated 1 cent coins and both were made to be used as necklaces. They both had holes at the top but instead of being copper, they were plated! One was silver the other was gold. well that's all I have to say for now, I will make the part two tomorrow. Take care!
