Sold! 5 Jefferson Nickels and 24 Wheat Cents!

Coins-United States | CMCC

My past blog (actually two blogs ago) was about Type Set Collecting, and yet I haven't gotten a single new coin for it yet. I decided to sell some extras on eBay and use the money to buy some new coins. I put 3 lots up for sale: A lot of 5 Jefferson Nickels (1938, 1939-S, 1942-D, 1943-S, 1944-P) at auction. I started it at $3.31 ($0.99 + $2.32 shipping), and it ended at $11.32, but shipping and fees were $3.42, so I made $7.90. Also, I had a lot of 24 Wheat Cents, including 1913, 1925-S, 1929, 1937 AU, 1938 Unc, and 1941 BU. This one, unfortunately, was bought at its starting price: $7.31, so fees brought it down to $3.71.

How I got my 1913 Buffalo Nickel

Coins-United States | CMCC

I was relatively new to buying and selling coins on eBay. I found a roll of so called 'dateless' buffalo nickels. I saw a bold 1918 on one, I saw 1935, 1928, and 1920 on some. I won the lot for $10.00. When it arrived, I found a VF buffalo nickel, 1935-S, 1928-S, 1927-D, and 1920 buffalo nickels, and a dateless 1913-S Type 1 buffalo nickel. I was so tempted to keep it, but made up my mind to sell it, and I did, for $6.00. When I received the money, I bought a higher-grade 1913-D Type 1 for $2 off of eBay; so I made $2.50 profit and a buffalo nickel from that one. The 1913-S was PO-1 or FR-2, but the 1913-D was AG-3 to G-4. Pictured is the reverse of the coin.
