Today, after my paycheck was cashed, I found myself inside an antique shop in which my favorite coin dealers had a booth. After looking for about twenty minutes, I did not find a lot like usual. All I found was a 1909 Indian Head cent, and the second to last date and mintmark in my silver Roosevelt dime collection, a 1949-S, I only need a 1947-S now. The best thing however, was underneath some trinkets in the booth next to their's. Inside was a group of, not a proof set, of 1957. It included a proof-65 Franklin half, a proof-66 Washington quarter, a proof-67 full steps Jefferson nickel (too bad it was a proof), and my favorite, a proof-65 what ears reverse Lincoln cent, after paying for the items, only $33 for all of them, I made my way to the grocery store next door. I went in to get some meat for dinner, and after paying and looking through my change, I found a silver 1964-D Dime. What a lucky day!
