Coin finds - 1877 Indian plus 1922D Lincoln, 1890 CC Morgan

| user_45311

My dad recently purchased the collection of a friend of his who passed on last year. 5-6,000 coins in total, plus about 100 pieces of old currency. While sorting, I was looking thru a couple of old coin folders and found an 1877 Indian in G/VG! Plus a nice 1922D Lincoln too. We're still sorting but its been amazing some of the stuff in there.Still working on my Kennedy set, 1964-2011 is done except for the 1996-2011 Silver Proof coins.

Coins on Television "The $100,000 Nickel"

| user_45311

I was reading an article in Coin World the other day, and it was about coins being the subject of television shows. Perhaps the most famous of these is from the series "Hawaii Five-O". The episode is called "The $100,000 Nickel". The plot is the attempt to steal the coin by switching a fake (altered 1903 nickel) for the actual one, and the subsequent events that lead to the recovery of the genuine one later in the show. The 1913 Liberty Nickel was the first coin to sell for over $100,000 in the early 70s. In the show, there are a few other coins shown, as well as a copy of Handbook of United States Coins. Its a fun episode to watch, typical police/detective 70s theme, but check it out if you get a chance.One of our local coin collectors who has been involved in coins since the 1950s mentioned seeing one of the 1913 coins for sale in the early 1960s, for the price of $5000. He ended up buying an 1894S Barber Dime instead :-).

Kennedy Collection

| user_45311

Finally got back to some collecting. Attended the Cleveland Coin Expo this past weekend, grabbed a half dozen Kennedy proofs out of a bargain bin for 1-3 dollars each! Decided to focus on the Kennedy series as my next project. Got 1964-1981 already, so hopefully that's a good starting point.

My dad and I are working on the Silver Washington Quarters, but I won a set of 2018S PCGSPR69DCAM State Park Quarters in the raffle at one of my clubs. I now have managed to get nearly 50 graded Quarters just through club raffles in the past 2-3 years, including some MS70 examples.
