Now is the Time to CRH!

Coins-United States | ChildOfTheWheat

As the holidays draw nearer, more and more people are turning in their change jars at the bank to pay for christmas gifts. Unfortunelty, these people could be trading in old collections, hoards, or silver stockpiles for face at their banks. Since soooo many people are spending these collectable coins during this time, it is easier now more than ever to find ultra rare coins. Fortunately, many of these coins are recovered quickly by us numismatists. It is our job as coin collectors to preserve the history in these coins that we are trusted to care for. That being said, you should go down to your local bank RIGHT NOW and get a box of cents, nickels, dimes, or what ever! Go, get the bag of ikes! What are you doing here! Just do it!

My Homestead DDR-004 in the Numismatic News!

Coins-United States | ChildOfTheWheat

Some of you may remember WAY back when the Numismatic News featured a story about the discovery about the Homestead DDR's, and how Steve Attwood from the Coin Community Forum found some of the more major ones. Well, i have the satisfaction of being included in that article! Earlier that month, i was lucky enough to get out of school and drive down to Beatrice to be at the launch ceremony of the Homestead Quarter. Well, they said that the YN's that WERENT school kids from the schools that were visiting today (meaning people out of town, this is where the Numismatic News got it wrong) got a free coin in a little plastic holder. These were the only "P" minted coins given out that day, and literally only 15-20 were given out (to my knowledge). I got one! Anyways, about 2 or 3 weeks after i got the coin (and 2 rolls of D mint quarters) steve posted on Coin Community about his finds. I immediately went to my room and, sure enough, my coin was a DDR-004! Here is the link to the Numismatic News' article:http://www.numismaticnews.net/article/new-doubled-die-quarter-discovered
