**Delicate Miniatures**

Exonumia | Kepi

Hi Everyone, I found these crazy miniature U.S. coins today while poking around in the ol' coin vault... What else is there to do on a cold Sunday afternoon... Right??? Anyhow, from what I gathered is that were sold as a set and used as a novelty item to "emphasize" the inflation problem in America during the late 1970's through the early 1980's. So here we are again some 40 odd years later and these are right back in style! Inflation surrounds us...Shrinking our U.S. dollar... My set includes an Indian Cent, Buffalo Nickel, Mercury Dime, Washington Quarter, Walking Liberty and a Eisenhower Dollar. The Shield Cent is just for size comparison. Aren't they tiny! So appropriate to describe our monies value of today... haha Hope you enjoyed just reading a silly blog. Comments are always welcomed!

How Laura Gardin Fraser Won the Washington Quarter Design in 1932

Coins | CheerioCoins

I was researching Great Depression Era Coinage for a article that I was doing for the YN literary contest and stumbled across a story worth sharing. Today I will talk about how Laura Gardin Fraser won the Washington Quarter deign contest, how John Flanagan's design got minted instead, and how she got her well deserved deign back on the 2022 quarter!

Why Are Some Buffalos Dateless?

Coins-United States | thatcoinguy

The Buffalo Nickel is a wonderful example of the American history on coinage. It depects an Native American (actually a combination of three Native Aerican's portraits) on the obverse facing right. On the reverse, a BISON mejestically stands facing left on a mound. The inspription "Five Cents" is on the mound on some 1916 coins, and underneath the mound on buffalos made from 1916 until the Jerfferson Nickel took it's place in 1938. On the obverse, an F is underneath the date, which will be the prime focal point for today's blog.

Average Blog post

| I. R. Bama

I found a quarter in my change. It was a 1973 D. We don't get Denver's here very often. I'd judge it to be a middle fine. The D was filled so I figured it was a November December coin and the die was in an advanced die state. I was all excited until I found out I had a better one in the album. But it was cool to find it and maybe I can sell it to someone else
