Cool Antique Mall Pickups| Coin Update #26

Coins | CoinHunter

This blog is going to be about a couple of numismatic purchases from my local antique mall.



The Antique Mall that is nearest my location is closing soon because the building the owners of the mall are using is rented, and the people who are renting it to them have other plans for the building. The mall is just going to close because it couldn't find anywhere suitable to move.


Anyways, let me get to the point. Because it is closing soon, a lot of the areas are marked 20%, 25% and even 50% off! I got some stuff from two different areas, one with a sale, and one without. In the area without a sale, I only picked up on item. It was an OBW (Original Bank Wrapped) roll of 2005-P Bison Westward Journey nickels priced at $6. It is interesting because the roll houses 25 coins (or $1.25 face) unlike a normal roll with 40. In the area that had a 25%-off sale, I picked up 3 three things. This area had a bunch of boring stuff, and, sort of hidden away in the corner of the case, several stacks of proof sets. I got a 1998 proof set that was $10 normally, but $7.50 with the discount, a 1966 Special Mint Set that was normally $20 but with the discount was $15, and a 2009 proof set that was normally $25 but with the discount was around $19. The 2009 proof set is big because it has four lenses; one for the four bicentennial Lincoln cents, one for the presidential dollars, and one for the district of Columbia and territories quarters, and one for the remaining coins; the dime, half, nickel, and Native American dollar. The cents have some nice toning (although I couldn't get it to show up in the photos) The total amount of coins in the 2009 proof set is 18 and the total face value is $7.19. The 1966

SMS sports a nice solid case and once silver coin, the 1966 40% silver half.


Thanks so much for reading this blog, and have a great day!

You are doing fantastic on your collecting! Nice photos too! We have had a few of those "antique malls" open up over the years, but they always seem to close up. ; )

Nice pick ups. To bad about the mall. Their days were numbered before the plague hit. No chance now. Thanks.

Yeah, no where near Kentucky. I was just joking.

Are you in Kentucky? Because it is probably far away from you (depending where you live).

Very nice selections! I've been working on an Eisenhower album with only purchases from the local shops, helping them out as opposed to the one's online.

Thanks! Ya, I also have an Eisenhower album, but I haven't really had the opportunity to buy any of the silver or proofs yet.

Look's like some very nice deals. Antique malls usually have coins but they are normally over priced. You got some good deals. I always look at the coins at the antique malls but can't remember the last time I bought anything. Thanks for sharing your recent experience. I always enjoy hearing about where others are finding coins and the deals they may of received.

You made out very well I'd say. We have an antique mall near us and they have a coin dealer set up inside but he's never there. You have to get the person at the cash register to open the case if you want something....and he's way overpriced. Thanks for sharing!!
