  1. I've dug up several like that also. They turn that color when they have been buried. Someone dug it up, cleaned it off, and put it back into circulation. Ive put several back in circulation like that.
  2. Thank you my friend. Ive been wanting one for a long time. Im on a very strict budget. Everytime I go to bid on one someone always runs the bid way up. I could have got a couple with details grades fairly cheap but I wanted to hold off and get a non cleaned or scratched one. Id love to find one in ms but that will be way on down the road if ever.
  3. Finally got the 1909 s in I told you all about in my vbd thread. I couldn't pass on it. Was the only one who bidded on it. Figured may be the only chance I ever get to buy one. Usually people run the bid way up on them. Wish it was a higher grade but I'm happy with it. ANACS F12
  4. It was where they charged to send my government package back. I thought it came out of the top. When I filled out the online submission form it had it all figured into the price. They must have waited to take that part out. I need to go through my statements this weekend and figure it all out. I got all my email and paper statements. Its not a whole lot of money to really worry about, but I just trying to figure out what I did wrong so don't have to deal with it in the future. Like KyCoinKollektor said been nice for a heads up.
  5. One of those trick nickles. First time I ever saw one of those, before I knew better, I thought it was some kind of mint error. Thought they accidentally put 2 obverse dies in mistakenly. Then found out how they was made and how the dies were made and found out its a fake.
  6. What exactly causes plating bubbles? I've seen it a bit. Is it gas trapped under the plating or something of that manner?
  7. In what year did they start accepting the face values of coins even if even if they were heavily circulated? For example in the 1800s they could refuse a worn coin at a bank if they didn't think the weight was there. And today coins can be worn out and still took at face value. Which our coins now are not precious metals but, was it like that plum up till 1964 when they were still silver? Or did they start accepting them anyways at face value after a certain time? Or pass some sort of bill in Congress or anything that still recognized them as face value even if well worn?
  8. Very cool find. Thats an awsome looking quarter. Congrats on that one.
  9. Thank you my friend. Your a great person. If you ever need anything give me a holler. If im able to help I sure will. Thank you to your grandsons also. Thats good kids to be generous like that. They been raised right.
  10. Awsome find. Especially in pocket change. Congrats to your boy.
  11. I was a talking about back in the 1800s before metal detectors were around. Id say a person couldn't even sneak a piece of bubble gum out of there these days where security so tight now.
  12. I think NGC has a census page. Should be on there if they have it. Don't know if they recognize it or not. You can check.
  13. Did they ever recover any of it. He may have been set after getting out of prison. He probably had a hoard rat holed somewhere waiting on him. That would test alot of people. Looking at all that gold all the time. Wouldn't take long to add up just taking a tiny pebble a day home. He got greedy when he went after them gold bars that had done been accounted for. I know it will never be known but I sit and wondered as I read about how many of them got by with taking small amounts and not getting caught. There probably at least one slick one who made a decent payday after they retired or whatever
