So tempting

Beautiful spring day yesterday, perfect for a trip downtown. It was the first day of the Farmer's Market. Had a delicious lunch, served by my favorite waiter. And of course, a stop at the coin shop.

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Jefferson nickels have been minted since 1938. That's approaching 80 years! A set that covers so many years has a lot to offer a collector.

Great day downtown. Good shopping, delicious lunch, and Macy's Flower Show too. But my first stop of the day was at my favorite coin shop.

War nickels

Coins-United States | CoinLady

The Jefferson nickels struck in Wartime alloy (copper-silver-manganese) form a set-within-a-set that is interesting to the historian, the WWII buff, and the collector. Only eleven coins are in the set, 1942-1945, P-D-S.They can be collected in circulated condition or all in Mint State. And they are a special set, as the coins havea large mintmark on the reverse, above Monticello, including the Philadelphia Mint issues.

Liberty Nickels

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Liberty nickels were minted from 1883-1912. Without the special 1913, this series makes an attractive set that can keep a collector searching, but is very doable. Many of the later dates can be found looking through "junk boxes." Oneof the first coins I bought was a well-worn 1906 Liberty nickel. These coins are not the most popular, something that can work to a collector's advantage.

Date restorer 2.0

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Back awhile, there was some chat about dateless Buffalo nickels. Collectors mentioned their "finds" this way, including one who found a bunch of 1918 overdates. I mentioned that I had tried this years ago, and my best find was a 1914-D.

Proof Buffalo nickels

Coins | CoinLady

I love Buffalo nickels. This is the all-American coin, with so much to offer collectors. Minted from 1913-1938, a collector can pursue a basic date-and-mintmark set in any condition. A set in high grade is a challenge, and a set with well-struck coins can prove more challenging. And then there are the proofs.

New collecting interest

Coins | CoinLady

After more than fifty years in numismatics, I have found something new and fun to do. I was inspired to do this by Dave Harper, editor of Numismatic News.
