  1. Oh, thank you for telling me, I had no idea that this was common!
  2. Bought this on eBay. (where else? ) 1908 S Indian Head Cent. It seems worn out of shape, which probably explains the low price. Seems to be a reliable seller, I doubt that it's counterfeit- nobody would counterfeit a coin in such a bad condition, right? Just two more to go until the collection's complete!
  3. Great coins everybody! I love seeing/hearing about other people's finds. I found this on eBay. 1871 Bold N. Based on the images from the listing, I'd guess it to be FR-2 because it seems to have been damaged much more so than worn. I wouldn't post this normally, but it's the 55th date in my Flying Eagle/Indian Head collection! Just three more, 1877, 1908-S, and 1909-S. (Not including 1856, that's out of my price range) All of the coins in this collection are between PO and VG, condition shmondition!Definitely going to get 1908-S next, as it is the cheapest of the three. Currently hav
  4. I found this while searching through a box. Not valuable or sought after, but an interesting piece for the collection, nonetheless! The stamp seems to be of the Confederate battle flag. Also noticed that 1961 is the centennial of the Confederate States, not sure whether that's coincidence or not.
  5. Got this last week. I've been collecting for about 2 years, and this is my earliest coin! I thought it was a nice addition. Around G-4, even though liberty is full.
  6. I was looking through a bit of change when I came across this 2017-P Lincoln Cent. There is an odd circle on the obverse and I don't know whether this is an error or not. I've seen this before on a quarter, but I dismissed it as some coincidental scratches. Now that I've seen it twice, I'm skeptical. Does anybody know what this is?
  7. Here are better pictures of it: Front out of holder: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wukvbkmh1k51tb8/20190828_181844.jpg?dl=0 Back out of holder: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9iz8gxy8bwkgyox/20190828_181856.jpg?dl=0 Die Rotation: https://www.dropbox.com/s/alqii4pnafiday4/2019-08-28 17.42.21.png?dl=0, https://www.dropbox.com/s/qmriqyce8rkcyvt/2019-08-28 17.42.45.png?dl=0
  8. I snagged a 1921-D Mercury Dime off of eBay for $23. The seller listed it as AG-3, which I agree with. I couldn't see the D in the original pictures, so I was a little bit skeptical, but it turned out alright.
  9. I have been a numismatist for about a year now, and I don't know what coin to buy next. I want your suggestions and opinions. My maximum budget is $100. I do not want a pre-federal issue, I do not want an error piece, and I would prefer that it is not modern (before 1955). I'd also prefer that it isn't an Indian Head cent or a Winged Liberty dime, for I am already filling in collections for both of those. I would greatly appreciate your input.
  10. A few months ago, I bought this dateless capped bust dime for a few dollars. It is variety 1 (wide border), and I can see the a 2 on it, which limits the dates from 1820 to 1828. I cannot read the last number, no matter what I do. I don't want it to be an 1822 dime without my knowing, but I don't want to clean the coin either. I have two questions: 1. Will a certification company be able to reveal the date? 2. Are there any methods of finding the date without cleaning the coin? This is the best picture of the date that I could get.
  11. As of 2018, there have been three reports of 1958 ddo pennies. Like Greenstang said, there is now way to know whether it is real or not based off of a description.
