    Black Friday

    I ordered a 2 ozt Canadian Kraken, a 2021 silver Britannia, one dollar face of 40% Kennedy half dollars, and a 1/4 ozt silver round from APMEX on Black Friday. (The latter two to make it to free shipping.)
  2. I got this today from a Youtube contest with surprise prizes. It looks to be bronze, but that's about all i can figure. I haven't been able to find another online to get an idea of who minted it, or when. Comments are welcome.
  3. I'm in the US, but I collect world coins. UK coins switched from sterling to .500 fine in 1920, and the last year that is silver was 1947.
  4. This may be just me, but when I think of the term "junk silver," I am thinking about low grade numismatic coins that have minimum value above their silver weight (poor to very good, and maybe fine). Once you get much higher than that, you have a coin with significant numismatic value as well. BU would definitely be an investment grade coin, rather than junk silver.
  5. I was in what is fast becoming my favorite local coin shop, and came across this. Condition-wise, it's rough, but I have wanted to add a Capped Bust coin to my collection for some time, so she looks beautiful to me.
  6. I had a really good day at the local coin shop. The three Barber halves are (in date order, not necessarily the order they are in the picture) 1906-O, 1908-D, and 1915-S.
  7. Back from a trip to the coin shop. I think I did fairly well today. Top row: Maria Theresa thaler restrike, 1938 UK Shilling, 1916 Tunisia 2 Francs, 1944 S US for the Philippines 50 centavos (I placed into a flip as it appears to have the 1907-1921 obverse. Sadly, it also appears to have been amateurishly cleaned) Bottom row is all 0.800 fine Canadian: 1964 dime, 1957 quarter, 1940 quarter, 1951 quarter, 1943 quarter, and 1958 quarter. A couple of the quarters have some really nice rainbow toning.
  8. I'm from the USA. The Eisenhower dollar is not silver. Some (but not all) of the 1971-1976 Eisenhower dollars from the San Francisco mint (mintmark S near the back of the neck) were .400 fine silver. Philadelphia (no mintmark) and Denver (Mintmark D), along with all 1977-1978 issues were copper-nickel clad.
  9. I have not had any problems with Ebay, but I use it very sparingly. I generally use it only for numismatics. You can look at pictures of coins and assess reasonably well whether they appear the way they should. With rounds and bars, it is harder to determine authenticity visually. I would be unlikely to purchase anything if I couldn't see clear photos of both the obverse and reverse. Also, I only use Paypal for Ebay purchases. If the order does not show up, or is not as described (eg. counterfeit) you can file a dispute, and if the seller doesn't act to make things right, it can be escalated t
  10. Peace dollar. Minted from 1921 to 1935. Mint mark (if any) will be on the reverse below the N in the word "One." Great find. (To date, I do not have an example of this coin in my collection. It is on my radar to change that soon) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peace_dollar
  11. Serious answer: 529 Daft answer: "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?" "I think so, Brain, but if Eddie Munster married Wednesday Addams, what would the children look like?"
  12. I won the Royal Fortune in a Youtube video contest (Stacking Kat), and found the George V Canadian penny and the wheat in circulation today. It's been a good day.
  13. Great coin! I love the Centenário, and if my budget ever allowed it, I would be torn between that and the St. Gaudens double eagle. The Centenário would probably win though for being the larger coin.
