Ending Years of US Coinage

Coins | CMCC

I made a blog about the Beginning Years of US Coinage a few weeks ago, about the years 1793-1796; today I am putting up the opposite, the Ending Years of US Coinage, the years 1857, 1873, 1933, and 1964.

Rare Half Cents

Coins-United States | CMCC

I often wonder about the proof Original and Restrike half cents of 1840-1849. These coins are doubtless very rare, so I often wonder what happened. Did they just stop making them for that period, and only made proof's? Does anybody have an idea? I've never even seen these in the market!

Type Set Collecting

Coins-United States | CMCC

I have made my decision for 2015: I will focus on making an 'Ungraded Amateur Type Set,' in which coins may be ungraded, and coins may not be worth over $100, unless I manage to get an amazing deal. This means that I will not get Liberty Cap Half Cents and Large Cents, 1864 Small Motto Two Cent, Flowing Hair and Draped Bust Half Dimes, Dimes, Quarters, and Half Dollars, I will not get Twenty-Cent pieces or pre-morgan silver dollars. Nor will any gold be included.
