2003 25c Washington Quarter

Coins-United States | user_9894

The other day I was wrapping quarters and I thought I found another silver quarter. It wasn't an old quarter, but a modern 25c piece that is supposed to be a clad coin. 2003-P Missouri state quarter, 225,000,000 minted.

1938-D/D 5c Buffalo RPM-3

Coins-United States | user_9894

Well not only did I finally find a RPM, but it has turned out to be an AU58! Just received it back yesterday from grading service. Very happy with the result. 1938-D/D Buffalo Nickel, 7,020,000 total minted. Designed by James Earle Fraser. RPM appears to be a FS-1938D-501 (Talbert), (Complete Guide to Buffalo Nickels by David W. Lange, page 177) Could there be an "S" under there? It's hard to tell.

Today's Quarter RPMs

Coins-United States | user_9894

Today I was setting up my digital camera, and downloading some software to get it working, and to test it I went and got a partial roll of silver quarters to see how it would work. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say that today it was around an 8. I need to work on the lighting next, to really bring out the varieties which can be found on our coins, The photos speak for themselves. Clearly you can see the repunched mint marks.

Quality of newer coins

Coins-United States | user_9894

Okay, I have been looking at some of the newer coins being produce in the U. S. and to tell you the truth, they are disappointing. The designs are terrible, flat and uninspiring. The Lincoln cent reverse is flat, the Jefferson Nickel is flat on the obverse and reverse and the state quarters are the same. They resemble toy tokens at best. The coins have none of the sculpturing of the past. Yes, I said past, are we to be dumbed down like the students coming out of high school? Quality doesn't count for anything? Script writing is old fashioned? No one left behind? These are the coming generations of "leaders" we will have to put up with? Are the universities turning out the type of people who can carry on the traditions of those who came before? Just look at the cars we drive today, they change the body style to attract the specific demographic that spends the most. The style of the cars being sold today has a lot to do with the computer games these kids are playing. Are our coins going to go the same way? This rant will be continued...

sorting coins for the last 2 weeks

Coins-United States | user_9894

Sorting coins for the last couple of weeks trying to get organized. Hope to find some beauties one of these days. Worked on Wing Liberty dimes , Indian nickels, and some Jefferson Nickels. My mother-in-law dropped off some coins for me to look at and she like so many senior citizens are getting ripped off by the shysters with the copy of the $20 gold piece, presidential dollar rolls and more. It is so sad they take these people for their hard earned money for a lot of crap.
