A few 17th Century coins!

| CC

Hello Numismatists! I thought I would do a short blog on my 17th century coins. I only have four, I'm hoping to get more soon. From the top left to the bottom right in the picture:#1. This one I found i. my coin store's "damaged" bin, and pulled it out for free! It is a Latvian silver 1 solidus from 1650. It was issued by Christin (1634-1654), Queen of Sweden. It is is a AU-MS range, and worth about $10.#2. This one took me a while to figure out, but I learned that it is a part silver billon mix 1 soldo from Venice, C. 1680 (no date). It has Jesus Christ on both sides, and is in a VF-XF range, even though it's dented. It is worth about $25.#3. This is my oldest from the 17th century-a 1616 double tournois from France. It is a coin that was used in colonial America, and I am happy to ahve it in my collection. It is in VG-F range, and worth about $20.#4. This is a British coin with Charles I on the obverse. It's date is worn away, but it is from C.1675. It is in about AG-3 condition, but it is another coin used in colonial America. It is worth about $8.Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed!!

I went to my bank again today, and they let me go through their "dump bin" again! I got some special edition low mintage Canadian quarters, a 1968 Canadian nickel, a Guatamala commemorative coin, and toned two pence and one pennies and more!! (There was also a no cash value token from 1900, but I didn't realize what it was until I got home) :(. But the best thing was MY FIRST TWO SILVERS in a nickel box!!! 1942S and 1943P! And my first buffalo!!! 1936 full horn!! There were also 3 foreigns--two Canadian nickels and a Mexican $1 coin. See the pictures!! My best nickel box hunt ever!! Thanks for reading!!

My 19th and 20th century type small denomination coin collection

| CC

This is my partial set that I am currently working on, and I am hoping to get a folder for it soon. I enjoy the obsolete coins, such as the 2 cent piece, three cent pieces, flying eagle cent, copper-nickel cents, and shield nickels below. The two cent piece was the first U.S. coin to say In God We Trust, for those of you who didn't know (if any). The 1913 type I Buffalo nickel was exciting to get, I got some dateless buffalo nickels from my local coin store, and soaked them in hydrogen peroxide and vinegar (It does the same as nic-a-date) and that's what I got! I've also done that with shield nickels. Thanks for reading!
