Trip to the coin shop - #1

Coins | JudeA

I went to my local coin shop today. I hadn't been there in a while so I didn't know what to expect. I forgot to bring my early S mint marked cents to trade for a '14 D. I walked in and looked at the table of random things they have. It usually has some Lincoln Bicentennials and I buy those. Lo and behold, the table has a mint sealed box of LP3 pennys, the item I was looking at on eBay, and it was only priced at $2! They are priced at $10 each on eBay, and this was only $1 above face value! I also bought a 10x Wide Field H.E. Haris Loupe. I bought the pennys I needed to fill up my album, a '47 s, a '48 s, and a 1949 s. That was it the total came to $20. I am really happy with this visit as I got more Lincoln Bicentennials to add to my ever growing collection!


Lucky day for you. It is always great to find just the right coins you need and are looking for. I always enjoy your stories about your and other member's trips to the coin shops.
