  1. Y'all win. I won't be back. I hope you are happy. Shameful, the whole lot of you.
  2. We must think alike. I too am saving these Coins for my GrandDaughter. Hopefully they will help her to gain a higher education in a few more years.
  3. @Rummy13 about the photos being too big, I have found that if it says too big if I only do 1 at a time they will go through, although I have had to upload one and submit and then do the next as a comment and again and again Thanks @Mk123. I am super stoked to have the 3 Lincoln's and the Silver set. 99.9% now so being relatively new at this I really wanted that 1st year.
  4. @Rummy13 you Sir do not sound like a Newbie to me and could probably help the others out more than they can help you. Sounds like you have one heck of a collection going. I am envious. @Frank dabank those are some mighty nice Lincoln's you found. I rare find anything nice and red in circulation. Occasionally yes. Never 4 at once. Also an FYI here: the only year Philadelphia put a Mint Mark on their Cent Coins was 2017, so any penny minted at that facility for any year other than 2017 will not have a MM at all. Denver, San Fran, and West Point will always have their mark, with the exception of just 1 or 2 years for SF and WP. I do not know those years off the top of my head but I think it's 1996 for WP and were for Lincoln's made...no, no, no. That was Dimes struck for Roosevelt's Bday or something. So see how easily I can get mixed up? Lol! Anyways these soecial no MM coins are supposedly big secrets of the Mint and are sometimes hard to find info on. I'm sure someone here in the Forum knows which years for which Mint facility.
  5. Dude....how could you? You opened up a can of worms with this one. Lol! Just teasing. There's no such thing.
  6. So can we Newbies do a 'Post Your Most Recent Acquisitions' here in this room like they do in the experts room? We could call it 'Show And Tell' and they might not even notice. I know I have never been comfortable showing off there and plus there's like 1000's of entries and there aren't any here in the Newbie Room. So I say let's do it! But only cause I got a pretty cool Christmas gift from that guy of mine. So let's see y'all's too, and if the Admins don't want it here they can remove it, right? So Show and Tell Newbies! It'll be fun, fun, fun. PS, Would you just look at my Christmas Dinner. Mmmmm....
  7. @VKurtB oh now, a little excitement never did hurt me or you in life. Or did it? It is a DDR by the way. But I quit sending them in when he told me my CT Quarter was MD when there is nothing near it to be MD. I think he is, well nevermind, he just doesn't care anymore so I will let someone else get the credit for this one. My Momma always said if you can't say something nice then bite my tongue. Lol!
  8. @kbbpll You sure do know how to use a girls words against her, huh. Just how would you know that I am from the Great State of West By God? Hmmm... But really I was merely being a smart spoon is all. Som6w of the guys are upset with me so I figure if I remind them how I can make them smile they will get over it. Yeah Baby!!! Good thoughts on my Lincoln. I'd have thought my buddy Lenny would have come up with either Polish or Abrading. He musta been having a bad day or else just wanted me to not feel too awful dumb. (Wonder if they will change my word?) Idt the coin is blobby, as you say. Who even says blobby anyway? Lmbo! Although you are correct, it is heavily Abraded and I am heavily disappointed. You crushed my dreams dude. Just kidding. I quit dreaming long ago. Merry Christmas to you and yours if I don't chat with again before then.
  9. I would never have figured this out on my own. I only started noticing it being done about a month ago. Makes our threads much less sloppy, don't you think?
  10. Haha! Thank you so very much, kind Sir. Now I know something new and it worked with my phone. I dis already know about the tagging, although it doesn't work for me 100% of the time. Thank ya! Thank ya!
  11. Ok then. Last one here and several Friends agree that it is a DDR. I have sent photos to Chuck at Copper Coins, but he is busy I suppose, or most likely we just don't care for one another so he isn't going to look at all. I'm sure you guys can't imagine sweet little ole me not getting along with someone, huh? Hahahaha! (Yes, yes. I am currently on the floor wracked with such heartiest of guffaws and yes my backside is coming apart). Anywhooo...there are no DDR's listed for any 1970 Cents, except for the S-Proof, so this is likely nothing at all, but wouldn't it be ever so cool if I had found an as yet unlisted 50 years old DDR, and in such great shape to boot? Sho nuff would be. FRFR. If you would please train your peepers to the left side of the 4th pillar, from the floor to about halfway up said pillar, and let me know what you think then I'd be ever so greatful. (How is that spelled incorrectly? Surely it isn't grateful?) And if it's NOT a DDR, then what do you think it might be, please and thank you. Thanks for putting up with me tonight. I am definitely feeling my oats for some reason. But I do hope I made at least a couple of you smirk a teensy bit.
  12. Here is a 1970S Cent that just has a lot going on on its backside, which says it's likely nothing at all much less a DDR, but there's no harm in asking. If you'd just look at the circled areas that'd be great. Plus it gives us all some study, right. There is no listing. I will have another unlisted DDR coming up. Thanks!
  13. So there are no listings online for 2019 Dimes yet, or any other 2019 coins for that matter. So I must ask you guys. Of you look at Wexlers 2016 DDR's you'll find some examples of doubling of the fluting of the torch for comparison. Do you agree that my Dime here is similar?
  14. I supposed there are hoarders everywhere. How come whenever I respond to someone the entire thing is above my reply but when other ppl reply it is either all by itself or they tag a person and only a little piece of the responded to comment is shown? Do you know anything about that VKurt? Or how I can see who reacts to stuff?
