Odd & Curious Money | ShriekenGriffon

I visited the Heritage Auction website because of an ANA e-mail and I found this article. It is very cool, interesting, and rare. Hope you like it!!!http://www.ha.com/heritage-auctions-press-releases-and-news/dime-struck-on-a-nail-brings-42-300-at-auction.s?releaseId=2881&ic=ih-1984-Barber-Dime-titleLink-auction1231-010716

The new ten dollar bill

Odd & Curious Money | Joebear

Though Jeb Bush would like to see Maggie Thatcher on the new double-sawbuck, other choices are more appropriate. I have to think his mother is not inviting him to Thanksgiving dinner this year, and Nancy Reagan might not either. How about Sojourner Truth or Harriet Tubman? Marilyn Monroe would cause a stir and a spate of collection I think. Jacqueline Kennedy is a good choice and another collector favorite. Eleanor Roosevelt would be an excellent choice as would Rosalyn Carter. Good choices abound, so I look forward to seeing who gets the nod for a change in the currency.I will collect a few or a whole bank strap.

My very own " Hobo "..... Nickel that is!

Odd & Curious Money | Kepi

I'm so happy to be able to share this special coin with everyone!  My husband attended 2015 Summer Seminar session two and not only had a great time and learned alot but also met a very talented and wonderful person...Tiny   : )    I'm sure some of you who went to Summer Seminar are familiar with Tiny, quite the character and really helpful when it comes to the ANA.  Tiny is also an artist to say the least and to make a long story a bit shorter...My husband, John, commissioned Tiny to carve a Hobo Nickel special for me!  His artwork is amazing!   Having only seen pictures of Hobo Nickels, I was truly honored and so excited to have one of my very own for my collection.   Thank you John and Tiny!   : )

Gold and Silver Upside Down Like Copper and Aluminum

Odd & Curious Money | Joebear

So Copper at 2.42 and Aluminum at 2.99 isn't exactly the upside down-edness of Gold and silver,. But is a good indication just how manipulated and played the current metals market is. Among others. I would imagine every major and minor commodities market in the country is corrupt to some extent.perhaps I am wrong. But I do think that one day there won't be anymore gold or silver coins. Just Copper and Aluminum.

PCGS gets the Date Wrong!

Odd & Curious Money | Weiner Numismatics

Just acquired this one; seems I have taken an interest in Slab Errors by 3rd Party Graders. I enjoy using these pieces as educational tools for new collectors. What do you guys think?
