Silver and Gold--August 2015--Volume Three

Free Silver!!!


To make the non-numismatic story short, my oldest brother just turned 10, and we celebrated his birthday by taking our normal Bi-weekly visit to a farm in Pennsylvania. While out in the area, we had some ice cream, and walked around Newtown and Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania. While in Newtown, I saw a little coin store, and we decided to pay a visit to it. I immediately knew that this was no coin store to be buying valuable, or even everyday silver coins at. At my coin store in NJ, dimes are $1.31 each, but this store charged $3.00 each. Also, low-grade halves were $10, compared to the $6.61 I paid the other day. I did notice a bin of cull coins. I found an 1868 Two-Cent, a PO-0 Capped Bust Half Cent, a PO-1 Half Cent, and a 1856 Seated Liberty Quarter in VF Condition that was obviously metal detected and had at one time had the top of the coin cut off. This coin was only worth $2.00 melt, and probably wouldn't sell for more than $3.00, but I treasured it. Unfortunately, no one had cash, which was the only form of payment that the coin store accepted. However, as we prepared to leave, he said I could keep my favorite of the bin. I picked the Seated Liberty Quarter, and he let me have it. I have no idea what mint it is, as the mintmark area has been cut off, but I assume that it is the common 1856 Philadelphia.

Silver, Please Keep Dropping!!!


I have been enjoying watching silver drop, and hating to see silver rise. The #1 place to check the melt value is at silverprice.org (no www!). In the 'All Data' Chart, the lowest recorded price is $3.55 and the highest is $49.45. Believe it or not, the record high was set over 30 years ago, on January 18, 1980. Silver skyrocketed in 1979, with prices opening at $6.00 and January 1980 opened at about $45.00. After the record was set, prices plummeted, with it dropping from $49.45 to $10.89 in four months.

One Knocked Off the Bucket List!!!

Coins-United States | CMCC

In the woods on the far end of the property that we live on, there are two creeks. Second Creek is the larger one, but is farther into those woods. I, my brother, and a friend of ours blazed a trail, and we used marks the same way Native Americans did. There are two spots that we like to stop at, one is what I call the 'Lagoon,' where there is a wonderfully clear spot, rocks to cross, a school of fish, a fence with barbed wire in the water, and the best part is that one side of the creek is 6 feet higher than the other, so we have to jump!
