a recent penny bag

| Sir GrantsAlot

The bag my dad got seemed at first it wasn't good because I haden't found very many good coins. I was about to give up but then I found a 1917 wheat cent!The bag also had some more awesome coins like several other wheaties I found and a plastic coin and a 2009-d that looked like a satin finish but I have never seen a satin finish before. I found some other coins not worth mentioning but I did find a lot of good coins after that 1917!

My Greatest Finding EVER

| Sir GrantsAlot

Through many boxes (about $1000) of pennies, my greatest finding was a 1940 chipped planchet and a cud and the greatest finding was probably the greaser 1971-D half dollar (worth about 10 dollars

My latest findings

| Sir GrantsAlot

Me and my dad are coin collectors. We look through coins in any denominatoin that we get our coins from the bank. Then we get delicious cookies and then yummy hot chocolate that takes a long time to cool off. Finally we get coins. I like to go to banks with coin counters because I often find coins in them. Recently I found 2 Canadian quarters, 3 pennies, a lucky parlor, and something called a vac token in the coin counters. Speaking of coin counters, one of the banks that has a coin counter sells us all the coins that go in it and we got some quarters, dimes, pennies and half dollars. When I was looking through the dimes, I found a 1940-s mercury dime, some 1982s and 1983s that were perfect and I collect 1982 and 1983s that are in excellent to perfect condition because the mint didn't make 1982 or 1983 mint sets. I also found a 2009 nickel which are rare and I save only because of their low mintage and I found a strange error coin. The pennies weren't as good because I only found a bunch of coppers which I can't afford to collect all of

my favorite thing at the Denver coin show

| Sir GrantsAlot

I got to go to the Denver coin show an I had a favorite station that had dateless buffalo head nickels for 15 cents and terribly worn liberty head nickels for 32 cents! While I was at the station, I noticed a silver certificate for $1.50 per certificate so I bought the oldest one but that station was not my favorite part. My favorite part was when I was looking through someones wheat cents and someone offered a trade for a 1909 VDB in AU condition cent for my silver certificate!

half dollar proofs

| Sir GrantsAlot

I noticed that the 1968 proof half dollars aren't frosted. I found some 1987 proof halfs but they were frosted. They seemed to have silver halfs not frostedand copper-nickel halfs frosted. A very interesting thing about halfs is that 1971 halfs have a ring round the middle only if they are perfect. In order to detectweak strikes are by looking at the shield on the eagle. Beware of silver(1794-1970) and not released for circulation! (1987, 2002-today)

coin grading

| Sir GrantsAlot

There should be more than 4 matches in the grading game on "gold" and you should be able to pick which coin you can choose insteadof them picking a coin for you. The grading game is fun but needs improvement. There should also be more games on money.org, YN programIt would definitely make me happy if I found some improvements on the grading game. (You can play the game at YN program)
