Answers - CLOSE-UP COIN IMAGES QUIZ #6 "Fives & Dimes" Part II
#1 - 1842-O Liberty Seated 10c.
As further proof that you CAN still find actual collectible coins, or "Treasures" in your own pocket, here's my latest find: a 1939-D Jefferson Nickel! I've always searched my change since I was but a wee lad in the 1980's, always hoping to find this coveted (relative) 'key date' Jefferson in my change.(My wife came home from buying dinner the other night and received this in her change.) When I saw it i thought it was maybe a 1959 (yeah - it's time I got some glasses for my failing, tired 45-year old eyeballs!) I've found several 1939's over the years, and even some "wartime composition" nickels, but never this key date. And while I realize that calling this coin a key date, doesn't compare to big time keys of say, Merc. dimes, Washington quarters, et cetera, but when you compare this to other (normal die) Jefferson nickels, this is the one with the highest retail value, and it's the only "39-D I've ever even owned. It's problem-free, in a decent/choice VF condition - and it only cost me face value! Keep looking closely at your change, everybody - you never know when the lightning will strike! So what have you found lately in your change? Post some of your recent finds!
#1 - 1842-O Liberty Seated 10c.
Hopefully this quiz is more 'enjoyable' than the last one. Answers posted soon.
1. 1837 Capped Bust Dime.
This time the quiz is only for 5c or 10c US coin denominations, including half dimes (you're welcome for the no commems this time!) As usual, the challenge is to see if you can identify each of the coins pictured, just based on a close-up image of a coin. Of course, you don't have to try coming up with a date and/or mintmark; just name each coin's series. Answers will be posted soon - good luck!
Coin #1 - 1858-O Half Dime (Reverse)
Here's my latest close-ups coin images quiz! (Sorry about the heavy pixelation; still trying to sort that out.) This time, these coins from the ANA Collection are either 19th Century Type or Classic Commemoratives - SIX different coins - Happy National Coin Week, everybody!!
Man, you guys are good - even despite the heavily pixelated photos (a problem I hope will be rectified shortly, but probably not for a little bit, as we're super busy with National Coin Week stuff here at the ANA HQ.)
Here's my latest close-ups images of coins quiz. Try and identify which coins these are! All coins again are from the ANA collection - and all three are 19th Century coppers this time around. Enjoy!
18th Century coin is a 1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar, reverse.
