Military Unit Coins

Exonumia | Stumpy

My wife and I were visiting a friend this weekend and she's close to retiring. She recently rotated back to the area from five years in Korea, She has spent a total of 11 years in Korea and the Pacific Theater. When conversation rolled around to hobbies, she gifted us some of her old military/unit coins. She felt that my wife and I would cherish and take care of these coins and she is seriously downsizing. When I told her that I intended to share with you guys and gals she was pleased. She gave me Nine coins, I thought I would share three. I just randomly selected em, the rest are as interesting, I could post the others at a later time, I will leave that up to the future.

1880 & 1899 "O" Morgan Silver Dollars

Coins-United States | Stumpy

As I have mentioned previously, I received some nice coinage saved by my family. I’ve had these coins for 40 years & still haven’t completely inventoried or cataloged them since I’ve only been active just over a year. I wanted to highlight some Morgan Silver Dollars that I found when I opened a storage box this week. I would have thought they would have been included in the box with the other Morgan Dollars, one of which I blogged about last week, but they weren’t, so it was somewhat of a shock to find these Morgans alone in a box full of Mercury Dimes.

Remembrance Day

Today let us raise a glass of coffee, water, the drink of your choice as a libation to the fallen. Webster defines Libation as an act of pouring or drinking a liquid as a sacrifice (as to a deity) or to celebrate an anniversary, person, occasion, etc.

1987 S 200th Anniversary Constitution Silver Dollar

Coins-United States | Stumpy

As I mentioned in an earlier blog, my Dad sent me coins when I was stationed overseas, sometimes for my Birthday or Christmas, sometimes just as a nice gesture. The following coin is one of the many he sent me over the years I was stationed overseas. It is one of my favorite designs in what is considered “Modern Commemorative Coinage”, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

1988 Olympic Commemorative Silver Dollar Proof

Coins-United States | Stumpy

My Dad was not a Demonstrative person, he was a quiet, contemplative kind of guy. You got few hugs, fewer verbal expressions of Love, hey, he was definitely a man of his generation (1924-2004). But do not be fooled by this, he was capable with just a glance or gesture of demonstrating love at an almost mythical level.

If this year coin has a mint mark it can be found on the Reverse below the wreath. This year has many different variations, most dealing with the date, i.e. 1880 over 1879. It also has reverse design differences that for reasons of brevity I will not go into here. It has a Silver content of 90%, 10% Copper, Silver weight; 0.7735 oz, weight; 23.73 grams.
