additional collections

Coins-United States | Conan Barbarian

after i got back home from the WFM i decided to create another modern cent collection but this time have the entire collection only brown cents. i have previously completed a red cent collection and i dropped the idea of a toned cent for now but the brown cents are going to be a little hard especially for the shield cents. so far (as of the shields) i have only found a 2011 brown but the more rolls i go through the faster it will come together. as a side note i did find 2 beautifully toned shield cents one was rainbow and the other was blue-purple.

HUGE BANK SILVER SCORE!

Coins | user_30307

So I took a trip to Nebraska. I like to coin roll hunt where ever I am because I like to see which places are better and which places have more special coins at. One of the, is DEFINITELY the bank that my papa use to work at in Nebraska! The day was already amazing, but I knew how to make it even better! I had a couple a bucks on me, so i planned to go to the bank to get some rolls of pennies(F.Y.I, I found a couple of things in the rolls!). When we got their, I also asked the bank teller if they had any silver coins, wheats, or anything special. The bank teller went to the back of the room! My heart pounded like a speaker system a he came back with a little cup that had special coins. He dumbed em' out and I saw silver! There was one silver quarter, and a BUNCH of mercuries! I asked him if I could purchase them, and he gave them to me for face value, which was only 96 cents! I couldn't thank him enough! When we got in the car, I looked at them. One of the mercuries was from... 1917!!!!!! And another one, dated 1942, is In ... MS - 64!!!!! THAT WAS ONE OF MY BEST FINDS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Actually, one of the next times I went there, they had ANOTHER mercury dated 1938! And now, I always got the that bank!

ERROR ALERT!

Coins-United States | user_30307

So it all started getting another box of pennies. I had got the box from my good bank, colorado state bank and trust. I was searching, and I hadn't really found anything. When i finished the box, I looked through everything one more time, which I always do because sometimes you can miss things. I looked at them with a loop to see if I could find any errors or varieties. I didn't find anything, but there it was! It was a regular 1970 D, or so I thought. Something looked of about the mintmark. And amazingly... it was.... a .... D OVER S! I couldn't believe it! I had never in my experience of coin roll hunting had I ever found any thing like it! It made my day. And that is one of the first errors coins I had EVER found coin roll hunting!

Not so obvious

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Some altered coins are poorly done and obvious even to the inexperienced eye. In my many years of collecting, I've seen a 1909-S VDB cent with the S mintmark glued on. The dealer who showed it to me pointed out how he picked at the mintmark with a fingernail and the mintmark came loose.
