Hello fellow collectors and welcome to yet another update.
So, in this blog I am going to tell you about recent (cool) finds and a numismatic related purchases. First off, a couple of days ago, I got a penny box full of a variety customer wrapped coin rolls of different denominations including: Pennies, Nickels, Dimes, and Quarters. I didnâ€™t find anything too awesome in the nickels, dimes, or quarters; but I did find something sweet in the pennies, a 1943-P steel penny. It is only the second one I have found, the other one that I have is a 1943-S that I found in a most likely (I am not because it was a long time ago) customer wrapped box of pennies. earlier in my coin roll hunting journey. Now, yesterday I received my second-ever order from whitman.com. I was able to get $10 off of the order with this coupon (might be expired) 2021NCW. I ordered 300 2x2s in three different sizes, and an album for Susan B. Anthony â€śSilverâ€ť Dollars. When I ordered the album, I didnâ€™t realize it said 1979-1981 on the front (I wanted it to have holes for 1999 as well) but; luckily, it had an extra 4 holes. I am going to use them for 1999-P 1999-D 1999-P Proof and a reverse example. I am currently missing several of the coins for the album, as you can see in the pics. I am planning on getting a 1979-S Proof Type II from a trade soon, and I am going to buy the NIFC 1981-P 1981-D 1981-S and the 1999-D from my LCS sometime soon. As far as the type I proofs go, Iâ€™ll just say that I probably wonâ€™t get those for a long, long time. Overall, I like the quality, although the pages are a little loose because I think it is meant to hold three pages, not two. As far as the 2x2s go, I discovered that they are a lot different than the 2x2s that I typically use. The cardboard is quite a bit thicker, and so it the plastic. I included pics of the steel penny, my new album, and some pics for the coins a discussed finding in my last blog (buffalo and war nickel). Enjoy the pics, and have an excellent National Coin Week!
