CherryPickYN #4: YN Auction Win and Summer Spending Spree

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_30405

Hello everyone!


Today I wanted to share some pickups from my recent numismatic outings, including some nice varieties and errors.


A while ago I went to a nice local coin show, the bourse had about 60 dealers. After taking a wide loop around the floor, I went to the Penny Lady's table and bought some circulated early Philadelphia Lincoln cents for about 25¢ a piece. I then stopped by another dealer's table and bought a nice Barber Quarter in VG for $10. I really like it because it had a full five and a half letters visible, almost making it eligible for the grade of fine. I also bought an AU 1901 Indian Cent for $10. I really like it because it had a full five and a half letters visible, almost making it eligible for the grade of fine. I also bought a small curved clip on a 1961 Lincoln cent for 50¢, and a 1957 Proof Cent for $8 from the same dealer for my Type Set. After I bought some world coins, I realized I had forgotten to get any more cents for my Lincoln Cent Album (1909-1995)! After picking up a filled die obverse on 2010-P Wyoming Quarter($1), scrap webbing from Dimes and Quarters ($3 for three pieces), and a double curved clip on a 1966 Nickel. I finished the day, by stopping by Arnold Coin Exchange and bought about 30 dates of BU Memorial Cents for about $10, I was also able to cherrypick a nice AU 1944 Silver War Nickel that I attribute as CONECA's DDO-004 for $4, as well as a minor filled die reverse on a Lincoln Cent. Overall I was VERY happy with my purchases.


Last week I went to another coin shop and ended up finding a lot of nice deals. First off, just after I entered the shop, someone who was leaving stopped and gave me $20 to spend! I ended up buying a bunch of dates for my Lincoln Cent Album, as well as a roll of wheat cents ($3), which included the scarce 1926-S in VF, two 1909's (probably in Good), and plenty of coins from the 1920's! I also bought a 1974 Proof Set ($7), VG+ 1930-S Quarter ($9), and a MS-64 1960-D ½ Dollar for $16.


I also found a 1958-D Cent with a nice rim cud while looking through my wheat cents and a 2001-P dime with an obverse filled die from pocket change. A few random questions: what does Littleton mean by "reprocessed" on packaging for Steel Cents and has anybody received their YN Literary Award Certificate in the mail yet?

I found out a few days ago that I won lots 2 &3 in this months Auction, a PCGS-69 Kentucky 25c (156YN$), and a ANACS VG-10 1935-D (101YN$)(I bid on it because its a low professional graded coin in an odd gade).


Thanks for reading! Please feel free to comment, and keep on looking for those varieties.

In answering your question about reprocessed steel cents, basically it is exactly what it says. They have been recoated with zinc and polished. NOT the original finish, without the original luster.

Rarely on BU, usually you will see some evidence of at least light wear. The color and luster is the best way to tell. Recoated coins will have a very shiny, mirror or proof like appearance.

Thanks for your answer! That's what I thought, does this normally happen to BU or circulated "steelies"?
