AN ERROR TO REMEMBER

Coins-United States | Longstrider

So since it is another slow Saturday I thought I would give everyone a fun lesson. First off I am well aware of the chance I took. I just never thought it would happen on this coin. A few weeks ago I was browsing Heritage.com just to see what the market is doing. A fun thing I do. This particular auction was all error coins. I like to get a few from time to time.

Two weeks ago someone listed these two notes shown below for sale and I scooped them up.

Paper Money-U.S. | Longstrider

I would like to piggy back on AC Coins blog and bring up another feature that is used as anti-counterfeiting on my MPC notes. Angel, yesterday was showing us a note he has snagged with little animals stamped on it. I will be talking about a feature our government added to these notes on purpose.

SMALL BUT MIGHTY

Paper Money-U.S. | Longstrider

This Prisoner of War, POW chit, has a tremendous amount of USA history associated with it even though it is tiny in size. It is for the canteen in Hawaii used to house prisoners of war during World War II.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

Coins | Longstrider

Well, I waited for someone else to write this but it doesn’t look like that will happen. I guess it’s up to me. Below are the coins that I was given on Father’s Day. Before you start wondering how many kids I have I want to say that these are from all the Creatures that live in The Compound.

Paper Money-U.S. | Longstrider

As most of you know, I hope, today is the anniversary of D-Day. 6/6/1944. The entire operation was code named Operation Overlord. I would like to discuss an operation most of us don't know about.
