odd V nickel

Coins | walking liberty

Like i said in my blog "birthday part 2" i got a 7 V nickel grab bag. I was looking at them today and a 1905 Philadelphia mint V nickel and the obverse is G but on the back, the V and the wreath is VG and most of the words on the reverse are gone! It looks like a grease strike but the V and the wreath are fine. please help.

Exonumia | walking liberty

Part 2 of my birthday story. So I got $30, new camo bedding, a Ford sign, 7 V nickels, and a box of candy canes! The cool thing about the 7 V nickels is that they were a grab bag and there were only 2 repeating dates! most of the time they are all the same. Well that's all I have for you today. have a good day!

about my birthday part 1

Exonumia | walking liberty

hello everyone! Like i said in my post about birthdays, my b-day is December 16 and I am turning 14. I am doing a part 1 and two because I have got some other things to say. I have only got 2 gifts early. Yesterday I got a coin collecting album (picture will be the cover of this post) and I got a water bottle that was custom made about my favorite truck brand Ford. The other thing I wanted to talk about is that on December 14th I went to a coin shop and got some things. i got some world coins from a 15 cent bin then I got two British seated 1 cent coins and both were made to be used as necklaces. They both had holes at the top but instead of being copper, they were plated! One was silver the other was gold. well that's all I have to say for now, I will make the part two tomorrow. Take care!

ANA website

| walking liberty

The ANA website has been having a BIG issue for me. So I logged on to the website to check my stuff, and I get a message saying that my stuff is not secure. why is this happening? Also, is the message popping up for you guys? They should get that fixed because if other people start seeing that they are going to stop their subscription with the ANA because they are going to think that the ANA has been watching them the whole time.

education on coins/paper money

Coins in the Classroom | walking liberty

Do you guys ever notice how little kids get taught about coins and paper money? For example, I was looking at a money learning sheet and the only coins and paper money it had on it was a dime, quarter, and nickel. And for the paper money, it had a $1,$5, and a $20. I was thinking where are the $2 bill the penny, the half dollar! back when I was in elementary school they taught us EVERY US currency that was circulating! Why do they not teach the younger people that any more?

Gifts for a coin collector

Collecting Tips | walking liberty

It's the holiday season again but this year is different. Because of COVID-19, we have to be on top of our game making sure we don't get COVID right before the holidays! But what do we do when we get asked "what do you want" and you don't know what do you do? Here's a list of useful things that you could ask for and if that is not enough I will put a link to youtube channels of my top two favorite YouTubers that discussed this here subject.1. some junk silver or a bag of random coins. This is the most basic thing to get a coin collector for the holidays. They are cheap (somewhat) and easy to get your hand on because they are sold everywhere!2. Coin flips or 2x2 coin holders. This is probably the cheapest thing on this here list! like number 1 these are easy to get your hands on and they have a wide variety of them.3. the latest red book or blue book. Don't you hate it when you get a U.S coin that looks rare but you don't know what it is? Well look no further these books come in a variety of books! we got big ones, small ones, we even got ones with a spiral on the side like a notebook!4. Neodymium magnet. Don't you hate it when you go to a coin swap or coin shop and you don't know if the silver coin is real or not? Well, they make the right tool to tell if the coin is real or not without acids! All you have to is swipe the magnet across said coin and if it sticks it a fake if it somewhat sticks then it's real.5. The final one an ANA or NGC membership. No, I am not getting paid to put this on the list I just think every coin collector should have this because they are good for you.6. And the final one, a coin world or numismatic news subscription. Like number 5 I am not getting paid for saying this (wish i was) having one of these subscriptions are a good thing because they connect you with other people, get your questions answered, and you could buy coins with both of their extensive market place.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FXlxWng_W8https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUGsTYvmklAHope you liked this!
