A Good Find!

Coins-United States | RPSeitz

After purchasing my coffee this morning, I examined my change and found a 1982 Small Date Copper Cent. I know it is copper because I weighed it when I got to my office and it weighed 3.12 grams. Unfortunately, it is not from the Denver Mint, but it does finish out one of my Lincoln Memorial Whitman folders. This is a strange find for me because I usually only get recent date coins with my coffee change. I don't know if this is a result of the National Coin Hunt, but, I am going to say it is a result. That's my story and I am sticking to it!

Flying Eagle Cent

Coins-United States | RPSeitz

I attended the Meadville Coin Club last Thursday and at our auction, I picked up a few great coins. The purchase that I like the most is this 1858 Flying Eagle Cent. This is one of the shortest-lived series of United States coins, having been produced for circulation for just two years, 1857 and 1858, however, there were about 1,000 1856 Flying Eagle Cents struck without official authorization. Therefore, from a legal standpoint, all 1856 Flying Eagle Cents may be considered to have been illegally struck and issued. These coins are very rare and quite expensive.

The next blog I have to share is my newest Peace Dollar VAM. It is a nice 1935-S VAM-3 called "Extra Rays". It isn't an Elite 30 or a Top 50. It is just a VAM I really like. This variety was first discovered way back in 1939 by Olav Berghli. It has a normal C reverse die, look it up. The "S" mint mark is the micro type. As a little aside, the host of different "S" mint marks used is very interesting.

If you have been reading my blogs for a while, you will know that I usually blog about VAMs and Civil War currency. Not exclusively but usually. Lately I started a US Type coin album, Dansco #7070. This has led me back to basics on learning about coins I usually don't collect. This blog is about one of those coins. It is about, the often maligned, Trade Dollars.
