First Addition in a long time

| Big Nub Numismatics

Today I was able to go look at some coins for the first time since before this coronavirus happened. Unfortunately, it wasn't a coin show or coin shop, but an antique mall I've had success in the previous few times I've gone in. On the one hand, it was the only thing open on a Sunday, and on the other, I thought that maybe dealers would not have changed any prices since before silver went up so high, so maybe I could pick up some cheap constitutional silver.

How low can you go?

| Big Nub Numismatics

I found myself with some extra time this weekend because the printing press for the newspaper I work for broke. I didn't know that could happen, but it was a bit of a happy surprise.Collecting modern notes are more for the collector, than the researcher. They are common, even most star notes, and it doesn't take long to find something you, that is, of course, if you are looking for something rare. Collecting by serial number is an exciting way to find bills. Your birthday, a special number, binary, or any other types of countless ways to put them together cheaply. Finding a specific number can be incredibly hard, but with so many bill being produced, your chances are better than what you think.I purchased these bills at the last Summer Seminar. They weren't expensive at all, and I felt like I only paid face value for them when I took into the account the case that came with them. Not only are these two dollar bills star notes, but these are the lowest serial numbers I have ever seen. I've been on the hunt for a bill with an even lower serial number ever since, but I've found it impossible. Maybe one day!

YN auction is Completed!

| Big Nub Numismatics

This was my last year for the YN auction, and I had a blast! I was able to win 5 lots using all but 80 of my YN dollars. Everyone had a great time, and it was awesome to see Sam again. YN Theo, or User-4449, won just about every other lot. What a performance.Here are the lots I won.Lot #4- Uncirculated 1909 V.D.BUnfortunately this coin was lacking the "S", but it is still a low-mintage coin with all of its luster remaining. I've been looking for a VDB cent like this for a while, so i was ecstatic when I won it.Lot #19- Full Bands 1943 mercury DimeThis coin is gorgeous and I can't wait to hold it in person. It has a complete strike, and only barely noticeable flyspecks.Lot #27- Proof 1964 Kennedy halfWhen viewing the average 64 kennedy, I tend to not be surprised. They have a massive mintage, and they are almost always in gem BU, but i still like the design. The proof version of this coin gets rid of all the things the circulation strike has. This coin only has a mintage of 3,950,762, and it has the beautiful mirror finish.
