Cheerio Cent, NGC Sample Slab, Roll Finds and More!

| CheerioCoins

Wow. I didn't think I would get many coins on this trip but it really surprised me how much I got for my collection. The first thing is yesterday the auction for the benefit of the YN's/benefit of Summer Seminar scholarships. It happened here in Colorado Springs, CO and was fun. I ended up bidding on lot #112 which was title "Cheerios Money". This lot was made for me! Here's the description the YN's wrote for it: "This lot has everything except a box of Cheerios. In this lot, a 1954 $1,000 Confederate note from a Cheerios box is accompanied by a Cheerios Cent, one of the first 10 million Lincoln cents minted." I literally had no idea there was a 1954 $1,00 Confederate note that came in Cheerio boxes but here I am. I won it for $40. I also got donated a 2006-S Clad Colorado Quarter, NGC sample. These sold for $60 a piece at the auction and is really cool.. All the YN's who participated all got something donated to them. (I was not participating in Summer Seminar though, just my brother).

I had posted earlier that I found two W quarters, a New Hampshire quarter with a hole in it, an American Samoa NP quarter with a cud on the mintmark, and three circulation strike S mints, Great Sand Dunes, Tallgrass Prairie, and a Sally Ride. I don't think I told you about this but I was also gifted a 1971-D "Ike" dollar and a 1922 Peace dollar. I also went to the Book Sale they had at the Money Museum and got a 1965 Red Book which I thought was cool. The final thing I wanted to share was the 1772 silver Ike dollar I got for doing the scavenger hunt at the CoinXWest show.Tomorrow will be the banquet for the end Summer Seminar which is where I will get the award for the YN literary award.


Thanks for reading my blog and have a great day!

Awesome collection! And in only one trip? Super cool!

Very nice haul! Most collectors would pass on a hazy looking Eisenhower, but not this guy. From experience with a few, and some commemoratives, they tend to develop a beautiful blue/violet color in time and look stunning.

Nice coins. I'm confused about the note though. Is it real or a replica?

Replica. The Confederacy wasn’t around in 1954.

Nice pickups! I wish I could go to SS, maybe once I get one of those scholarships... Still waiting for my certificate to arrive, I already blew my $200 credit ;) Circulation finds are always amazing

What a great bunch of coins you got. You HAD to win that Cheerios set. I like all of these coins and currency. Again, congratulations on the award. Check that Peace Dollar for VAM numbers. 1922 has a ton of them. It is always fun to look at an old Redbook to see the prices back whenever. Well done buddy. I hope you have a great time at the banquet. Thanks.

That’s quite the haul. And quite a few nice pieces I might add. I am a fan of Ike dollars, so congrats on that gift. The 1965 Red Book is a nice touch as well. Plus the Cheerios is definitely fitting for you. Thanks for sharing.
