New Items

Coins | JudeA

I recently got my YN auction item in the mail! I think I bided $YN 170 on it. It is a sample slab from the YN program of June 2019. I think they were given out as prizes for YN's who completed the Treasure Trivia challenge. The coin in the slab is a American Memorial Park quarter dated 2019. It doesn't have a grade, but its definitely uncirculated. I also recieved my literary plaque from CONECA a few days ago. I got it for writing an article for their magazine!

CONECA Contest prize

Coins | JudeA

So today I got my prize for winning the CONECA crossword contest! There was some pretty good stuff in it, and I will be telling you all what I got. The first thing I got was a 1960 D cent that said that if you go to variety vista then you can try to attribute it. I think it is a repunched mintmark of some sort. The next thing I got was a 2001 broadstruck cent certified by PCI, graded MS65 Red. The next thing is a 1984 D cent that is apparently partially unplated. I am not sure if this is an actual error, commet your opinion down below. The last thing I got was a magnifying loupe. It is a triplet with a 10x - 18x and a 20x - 12mm. I will be adding pictures of all these later, commet what you think about these items!

Their bank is always really good for finding Lincoln Bicentennials, I found 8 of them, one of every design. I also found one 1941 wheat cent. Now, in the November to December edition of the CONECA magazine. I filled out the crossword puzzle for YN's. I received an email today that I won! She is going to send me my prize next week.

Mail?

| JudeA

I think I've learned more in this past year that mail is not dead. I have become active in coin collecting again, and with mail coming from the ANA, eBay, and now CONECA, I have had a lot of mail. Yesterday I got 3 things in the mail. I also got the email stating that I won the item in the YN auction and I should send in my YN dollars. I got my first ever edition of The Errorscope, and my membership card to CONECA. I got my YN dollar request for my blog on doubled dies. I also got an amazing book from the ANA library, The Cherrypickers' Guide to Rare Die Varieties!!! I spent 2+ hours yesterday looking at that book, and now I have about 10 more minor varieties that I feel the need to search for in my penny hunts. Thanks to the ANA for making ordering from the library possible! Question for the blog - What is Numismatic organizations are you subscribed to besides the ANA? Happy hunting!

WOW.

I think it is great that they are doing this for YN's, I have been wanting a subscription to this for a while! I don't know if you will get it in the mail, or by email, or if you will get the free error coin or variety they promise, but all the same, I am very excited to receive my first edition of Errorscope!
