I'm Back! Proof ASE, Slabbed Halves, & More | Coin Update #53

| CoinHunter

Hello all!


Well, I’m back and I have a lot of things to share in order to get you guys caught up, so here goes!


First up, I did receive my Sally Ride quarter roll set a while back. I decided to open the rolls, pull the best example of each mint, and sell the rest on Ebay, and that is exactly one I am doing (so far I have sold three P & D sets of the coins). One thing I noticed is that the coins in these rolls seem to be in pretty bad shape compared to coins out of Brinks or Loomis wrapped rolls.


Next, I did find a 1964 silver dime in the register at my work a couple of weeks ago. It is in okay shape, but silver is silver.


I also hunted ten machine wrapped rolls from my credit union and twenty rolls of machined wrapped quarters from my bank. Out of the credit union rolls I found a pretty decent 2020-W Weir Farm quarter. It is slightly circulated but it is better than my other example (which had the ring of death-wrapping machine damage). Out of the rolls from my bank I found two DDO-001 2020-P SRB quarters. One of them is in slightly better condition, but they are both pretty circulated.


Next I have three more GC auction wins to share. A 1960 MS-64 Benji Half. This coin is pretty decent and I got it for $23. An 1964 MS-65 Kennedy half. This coin is really cool and has pretty clear fields-I paid around $27 for it. And lastly an 1854-O G-04 Seated Half dollar. Although this coin is really worn, and kind of a lower coin for the grade, it is my first O mint slabbed coin, and my first seated half dollar. I’ll be putting cut-out pics of this coin in my type set album (since I’m not going to be cracking it out of the slab).


Last, but certainly not least arguably the coolest coin that I am sharing in this blog. Just yesterday I received my backordered 2022-W proof American Silver Eagle! It is looking awesome, although it has a couple of annoying specks of lint or something in one area on the obverse. It is my first proof American Silver eagle, and it is now the most expensive coin that I have ever purchased (although only by a couple of dollars. It barely passed up my PR67CAM Benji half that I got for $70). It was $73 plus $5 shipping.


After receiving this proof ASE, and now that I have some income, I’d really like to sign up for the enrollment program, but it looks like that may not be happing for a while since it currently says “Not Available” on the Mint’s website.

Anyways, thank you all for the farewell comments on my last blog, enjoy the pics, and have a splendid day, week, and month of May!

Wow! A silver dime in circulation, a proof SAE, a V75 W quarter, a bunch of slabbed halves, DDOs, and rolls of Sally Ride quarters! I love reading blogs because of your variety, I mean, you have something of everything! Great blog.

Proof ASEs are great. Always wanted one. That’s an interesting idea, just using a picture of the coin you have in a slab. I have a few slabs of coins I need in my type set, I just haven’t had the heart to break them out. Interesting idea!

Ya, and if you want to get a little more advanced, you can stick glue the pictures of the coin to a regular coin of the same denomination so that it actually has some thickness. Thanks for the comment!

I wanted to add that a lot of people collect the low grade coins. They are called Low Ball or Old Dogs. Check it out. There is even a Registry category at PCGS. Some go for HIGH prices.

You are the luckiest coin hunter I know. Is that lint thing in the coin or just floating around in the container. I really like that Franklin. Thanks. P.S. Now you need a 1853 seated half w/ arrows and rays.

The lint (or whatever it is) is ON the coin--I even opened the capsule (carefully) and tried to blow it off with a bike pump to no avail. Thanks for the comment!

Every time I read your blogs the finds are terrific. Note the P &D quarters many are grading 65 & 66. I think the mint rushed many sets. Great idea rolling the others over. The silver poof do much better. I like the updates keep them coming. Thanks for another good blog!! I believe those are lint or something else. Looks good!!
