1793 strawberry leaf large cent (the fifth)

Coins | Larry Smith

This past week, I got the honor of holding the (not yet confirmed) fifth 1793 Strawberry Leaf Large Cent. Someone came into Brookfield Coin in Danbury, CT and brought in a pile of foreign junk bought by the pound. The owner looked through the pile and later found this coin. They are about to get it graded and if it turns out to be the suspected coin, it may raise a numismatic ruckcus. I highly recommend going to Brookfield Coin. The prices are fair, and if you are lucky, you may be able to hold one of the top 100 rarest coins.

New Coins For My Collection!

| Jonas's Coins

On Saturday, I went to (for the first time) a local coin shop near me, Cameo Coins and Collectibles. If you work there and happen to be reading this, please comment below. It is a small shop with probably about 5-6 people working there. The store is basically like a giant safe. You have to ring the doorbell so they can let you in, and at least half the staff had guns on them. But their pretty nice. You get pretty much one on one service. They have all the slabbed coins in a display case in the front, lower grade coins in binders, they had bags of coins (junk silver, wheat pennies, etc.), and things on shelves. They also had a few other collectibles and a jewerly section.

Comparison of Red and Blue Books


I recently, for my birthday, got a 2016 Blue Book from a friend of mine. I noticed many differences, like a G-4 Common Indian Head Cent being worth $2.00 in Red and $0.80 in Blue, a G-4 1909-S V.D.B. worth $800 in red and $450 in Blue, and even the 1894-S dime, $1,500,000 in Red and $600,000 in Blue.
