**76 Years Old And Still In Curculation**

Coins-United States | Kepi

Amazing! Can you imagine a 76 year old coin and still out there for collectors to find! What a great hobby we have. This Wheat Cent dropped out of a cashiers coin machine and landed right into my pocket. While it's not in perfect shape and has definitely been around awhile, I think it's a wonderful example of a "Wheatie". ; ) The designer of this cent is Victor D. Brenner. The series ran from 1909 to 1958 and included the Philly, Denver and San Francisco Mints. With a mintage of 657,796,000 this 1942 P is not rare by any means...in fact it has one of the highest mintage's of all the Wheaties made. Makes me think that there are alot more out there just waiting to be found... Who knows what you might be handed back for change in your next purchase! Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are always welcomed.

**Beautiful Blue**

Coins-United States | Kepi

Hi Everyone, Just a short blog tonight as I wanted to share with you my latest addition to my toned Mercury Dime Collection! This one comes from an auction I recently won. It is a 1942 Mercury Dime or "Winged Liberty Head". Graded by NGC as a MS62. Unfortunately no Full Bands, but to me the toning makes up for that. It shows amazing blue, violet and orange tones on the reverse... While the obverse is more golden. There's something about these Mercury Dimes from the 1940's that seem to really tone beautifully, more so than other dates. Any ideas on why this might be? I hope you enjoyed my blog! Any comments are welcomed! Please note that scratches are on the holder...not the coin.
