THIS AND THAT

This blog is a hodgepodge of thoughts, hopefully you enjoy it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Tomorrow (April 27) is the 200th Anniversary of Ulysses S. Grant birthday.

QUESTION?

The U.S. mint can colorize coins, and they become a collectible, while others colorized coins, and they are considered junk. Is there special treatment for the Mint?

NUMIISMATIC PROVERBS

1. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish.

2. A penny for your thoughts

3. Don't accept wooden nickels

4. Not worth a plugged nickel.

5. Step on a crack, break your mother's back, step on a line find a dime.

6. A day late, and a dollar short.

The U.S. has actually been quite late to the colorized coin table, I wish they had never decided to join. Although Canada does some nice colorized coins as did Japan with their prefecture (Statehood) series.

I saw that it was the Centennial of this Grant Centennial because it was on the cover of the Greysheet! I also recognized a few of those proverbs but learned a few too. Thanks for the blog!

Wooow ! Great way to honor a beloved President. However, the sadness and loneliness from his peers during his last days were a heavy burden. He spent his last chapters of existence writing an autobiography sitting in his porch and living room suffering from throat cancer. Many historians have given relevance to his gallantry in the battlefields and the search for a more stable Union. Great job !!!

I enjoyed that very much. I have herd most of them not all. Well done. I don't think the mint wants to make colored coins. They made the basketball it didn't work out. Maybe that's the reason. Number five is new to me. I'm not young I should have herd that. Great blog. You put a smile on my face haven't had one in a long time. Thanks for that.
