**An Eye Catcher**...

Coins-United States | Kepi

Sometimes when you visit your favorite coin shop you have nothing particular in mind that your looking for. No list, no hole filler, no "just released" special coin or set. I thought today will be that day when I will not spend "Money on Money"... Although one of my husbands favorite things to say when it comes to buying coins "Nothing wrong with that" ; ) A relaxed day of chatting with your coin dealer, just shooting the breeze. Browsing around and then something catches your eye... For me it wasn't shiny silver or gleaming with luster like the other beautiful coins around it. Nope for me it shone dark with years of age and tone. But what was it? Truthfully I couldn't tell from where I was. To my surprise it was a 1952 Franklin Half Dollar. A Franklin??? Now I haven't had much interest in Franklin's before, no particular reason why. After a moment of pondering... Hmmm... A Franklin... I loved this coin! It would look great in my collection! This must have been meant to be, as I was not looking to pick up anything this trip... I think my new Franklin picked me! So much for making plans, especially at the Coin Shop! Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are welcomed ; )

**Another Wolf For My Pack**

Coins-World | Kepi

I would like to share with all of you my latest addition to my collection! First let me thank CoinLady, as she is the one who brought the existence of this coin to my attention. I had written a blog on July 28th titled "Wolves or Wolfs???" and because of her comment to my blog I was able to find this beauty of a coin and yes, a Wolf! It's a 1967 .50 cent piece from Canada in 80% silver. A Circulating Commemorative Coin for the 100th Anniversary of Canada. The obverse has the profile of Elizabeth ll, when she was just 39 years of age. The engraver is Arnold Machin. The reverse depicts a howling wolf with the inscription 50 cents, "Canada" 1867-1967. The engraver being Alex Colville. This beautiful example has a Proof-Like finish and some amazing blue toning. This just goes to show how the members here inspire, help and show interest in each other. Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are always welcome!

**Golden Girl's**

Coins-United States | Kepi

After several trips to my coin dealer and after admiring this coin and her sister, yes, there were two identical. I'm like what the heck are you waiting for Kepi? For someone else to buy them? So next time I go to the coin store and look in the case and they are gone... I can be sad and mad for not buying them earlier...? Well...not this time! These ladies are coming home with me... ; ) I loved the golden tone of these 1881-S Morgan Dollar's! Beautifully unique with a sharp strike and a mintage of 12,760,000. Although thought to be one of the most common of the Morgan Dollars... These look anything but common to me ; ) Thanks for reading my blog! Comments are always welcome.

**A Pocket Full Of Change**

Coins-United States | Kepi

There's nothing quite like that feeling when you check your change from the day and see a quarter that just looks "different". That's what happened to me yesterday when I found this 1951 D Silver Quarter! They really stand out from the later dates! Always look at your change...you never know what might be out there in circulation! Thanks!
