Coins | World coin collector

Welcome to my weekly blog. Why does water cause copper pennies to turn into a brown color? I also want to know how long red pennies can still have a red color in circulation. Can a coin cause a fire? I want to know what will happen with a coin if it stays in snow for 10 years, because it is snowing strong in my home state of Oklahoma, it has been 4 inches of snow. That has been the most snow since I remember. I was born in Missouri where it snowed a lot. I watched an old news story about how pennies keep drivers safe. It explained that pennies measure 1/6 of an inch of thickness on your tires right above Lincolns head, But that is only for the 1969-2009 pennies because they are not high reliefs and they are shorter on Lincolns than shield cent . Depending on how thick the treads of your tire are. Why would they still get rid of pennies if they have been talking about getting rid of them for 35 years and nothing has happened. also I read an article that for 2026 for the 250 year birth of America they will make special designed coins of every coin including the penny so they can not get rid of the penny now. Why do only business strike Morgan dollars have proof like finishes, did they spend more time on Morgan dollars because they knew lots of people liked them. Why are Morgan dollars the most popular coin to collect? Is it because they are big heavy coins that are hard to find in very high grades? Only some years of coins have lots of coins put in circulation, For example the 1901 p and 1890 p Morgan dollars had a lot of coins put in circulation. Why were there a lot of those coins put in circulation? High grade common Morgan dollars were overlooked for those Carson City minted Morgan dollars so they will have more value if put in circulation. How would early coin collectors know if the coin is rare or not, and if so why would they keep so many of that date and mint mark coin so it will be worth less? I found a 2000 wide AM in circulation that bought the value of the coin down even lower. It is the most common to find. That is what makes the value of a coin so high how common it is to find it. That is the fun of coin collecting coins. Why did war nickels rust so fast in circulation? And why were Fake war nickels made in 1944? I is easy to spot if your 1944 war nickel is fake, so what was the reason of those coins being minted?

My oldest quarter

| World coin collector

My oldest quarter is a 1906 barber quarter in AG3 condition. Most barber coins were sill in circulation until 1945, However lots of roll of BU coins were also kept to have more nice coins. That was the same year the Denver mint opened so that is a cool event for that year.TR did not like any barber coins so they were stopped in 1916.
