Hello and welcome to another update!
So today I have the finds of three coins boxes (a cent, nickel, and dime) to share, along with two more Great Collections purchases.
Before I share my finds, Iâ€™m going to tell you guys one thing quick. Although I find and keep Canadians, common wheat cents, 2009s, S-mints, older nickels, common/minor doubled dies etc, Iâ€™m only going to be sharing the cooler, and more notable finds (as I have been doing for most of my blogs). I just wanted to clear that up so that you guys didnâ€™t start thinking that I only find one wheat cent per box or something like that.
Letâ€™s start with the finds of the cent box. As I was looking through the box for enders, I found my second ever wheat cent ender. All I could see was the reverse, and it didnâ€™t look to special, but once I opened the roll I was surprised by my first ever 1911-D. The other notable thing I found is a 2020 Lincoln Cent with a partial collar error (the collar was tilted when this coin was struckâ€”making the rim have a weird curved line along it).
Now for the finds of the nickel box. Almost right away, like 6-9 rolls into the box I believe, I found an edge that I new for sure was silver. I pulled it out and saw the date: 1945, flipped it over and saw the mint mark: S. Although several of the S-mint war nickels donâ€™t have very low mintages, for some reason this is only the second one that I have found (along with the â€™42-S that I found recently). Also in the nickel box I found my first ever 1958-P in pretty decent shape and a 1968 Canadian nickel.
Now for the finds of the dime box. Although I didn't find any silver, I did find a 1964-D Lincoln memorial cent that was cut down to pass as a dime, a 1970 proof reverse, and a 1966 that is most likely an SMS coin!
Now Iâ€™ll share my Great Collections wins. After my last two wins on GC (the 2021 T2 ASE and the toned 1963 proof dime) I held off of paying for them for another week so I could get my moneys worth out of the shipping fee. Anyways, the following week after winning those two, I won two more lots, one of which was a two coin lot. All three coins are graded by PCGS. The two coin lot consisted of a SP69 2005-P half dollar (which is in an older holder with gold-shield) and a SP68 2005-D half dollar (which is in an even older holder). I got them for around $10 each (which is a pretty good deal). Now the coolest coin of the three is an MS-68 2020-P tall grass prairie quarter that I got for only $26! I now have two high grade circulating coins that I got for good deals (the other coin being my MS-67FB 2019-P dime that I got for like $16 a while back).
Thanks for reading my blog, enjoy the pics, and have a great day!
