Poland Trip Coins Pt 5 (Last one!)

| ShriekenGriffon

This is the 5th and final part of the coins I got on my Poland trip blog, except this time, I will be talking about some bills. Actually though, only two were received from Poland and are gifts given to me by my grandparents. The third was found by my mom (who is Polish) in her desk a few days after we returned from our trip. Now I have no experience on grading paper money but the one from my mom I will say is extra-fine to about-uncirculated with a few faint folds and some small crumpled parts but otherwise is fairly nice. The other two are really bad with many creases, folded corners, dirt, and creases. That’s enough with the “specifications” and more onto the bills and a little history. Also, none of these have special serial numbers. There is also a watermark of the eagle on each one.

Silver Queen Strikes again

Coins-United States | user_7361

I enjoy collecting coins and old currency, just as the rest of you do. I have a large variety of nice coins and paper currency in my collection but lately I have developed a taste for collecting junk silver coins. Every time I make a purchase to add a coin to my collection I have to buy some junk silver as well. I have become an junk silver addict and now I'm known as the "Silver Queen" amongst my fellow collectors. I walk into my local coin dealer and when they see me coming through the door they automatically pull the junk silver tray out for me and put it on the counter. Yes, even the local coin dealer knows I'm a junk silver addict.I always get teased and told I have a nose on me that can sniff junk silver out miles away.Does anyone else out there like junk silver coins too? Please share your story.

1923 TOP-50 VAM PEACE DOLLAR

Coins | Longstrider

So here I am trying to save money for the ANA Anaheim Show. Doesn't sound like a big deal does it. Then I get an alert from ha.com that a coin I am looking for has come up for bid. I check it out and it's a very nice 1923 MS 64 Peace Dollar VAM-1B Extra Hair. I enjoy Vam Peace and Morgan Dollars. Especially ones you can see the deal that makes it a noteworthy, Top 50, VAM without any magnification. I put a modest bid on it and before you know it I won it. Oh well. It's a beauty. I have included a photo I took from VAMworld so you can see the extra hair clearly. I had a bit of trouble photographing this coin as it's fairly blast silver color. What do you all think. I already know I'm weak! Thanks for looking!!
