My Numismatic Journey

Coins | user_61901

I inherited my brother-in-law's coin collection. What a difference between his and mine. His is in almost pristine condition. Many are slabbed. Some are not. Mine looks pathetic compared to his. Maybe I can learn from him.

1909 VDB penny... I know it looks really bad, but...

| Grogu

As you all know the 1909 VDB is always being looked for. I found my first one. I know it looks beat up, But I am happy to find one. I need the S mint one. I am amazed at how much this penny has been thru, the coin actually looks like the date is 190..lol. I love this coin.

Crazy question...Please keep in mind I am a newbie

| Grogu

I have some nice coins that I would love to send some of these coins to be graded. However, I don't want to feel silly sending anything to grade. I have some really nice wheat pennies too. How do you all decide?I did what I could to take the best pics but did not come as well as I would like to.

A Brief History of Small Cents

| Prodigy Coins

In 1856, the United States ditched large one cent pieces and replaced them with a significantly smaller version.

About 1 and a half years ago I started to collect pennies. It started when I was at a thrift store and I saw a folder of squished pennies. Then I decided to move things up and collect cents. It started when I bought a 1941 to 1974 Whitman folder and hunted rolls from the bank as instructed. I got more and more serious about my collection and decided to get all Whitman penny albums. I have just gone to coin shows and shops and hunted from there.

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!
