     Wow! It's been a Month since I posted last but this will be a pretty exciting blog!
      I went nack to the coin shop I wrote about last time on a $25 birthday shopping spree. I found many cool things, but will not be listing them here. However, you can check out the video I made at:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qd0rwZeubOc

      Back to the coin, I was have gotten an interest in old Canadian large cents so when I saw a 1858 Canadian large cent in the 50 cent bin, it caught my eye, I quickly scooped it up. Later , at home when I looked up the grade and value, it came out to a VG-8, but a value of about $75!!!! It made me very excited and now I also have a cool coin for my collection!

I hope you enjoyed and have a nice day!

Great buy! Glad to hear it, too. Thanks for sharing your story, I will look at the YouTube video in a bit.


Level 6

There are bargains at the coin shops. The owners don't have knowledge on everything. Keep up the sharp eye!


Level 5

yep! I told a friend of my dad's at church and he was confused about how people who specialize in coin selling didn't notice the Canadian cent and I tried to explain. I guess it was just too complicated...
