Lets write a blog?

Coins | 1943penny

hey guys!


A little survey/blog today....


what is your favorite coin?

How long have you been collecting?

what is the best thing you have found in circulation?

what did you start out collecting and what are you collecting now?


I guess I will answer these as well....

1.) mercury dime because of the size and beautiful design

2.) about 3 years

3.) doubled ear penny (sold for close to $200 on eBay)

4.) wheat pennies, and now I collect modern silver, wheat pennies, Indian heads, and mercury dimes



One last thing I want to share with you is I recently got a 1931 s penny off of eBay in XF-45 condition, so I am super exited to get that in the mail. I will be posting a blog on it when I get it.



Thanks for reading!

I have a favorite set! It's called tokens of coventry. . P. Kempson was the designer and die sinker.. He made them in 1797. They grade from MS 63 to 66. Some red brown one proof like. They look like they were just made. All from England. It took five years to put together and the experts told me in was wasting my time. No way you can finish that set. It's 19 tokens.. I believe it's the only complete set. . NGC believes it but can't put that in the label. . It took two years to find the last one. So they put my name on the label.. It's on the web and NGC registry site.. You all can do the same. Never give up. I'm totally disabled and I did it. Keep with it. Someday you will.

my favorite coin is the Liberty Walking half-dollar, I've been collecting for about 8 years now, the best thing I've found in circulation would be bicentennial quarter (never said it was crazy good), and I started off by collecting a bit of everything (in other words, I collected whatever caught my eye), now I'm working a mintmark/date set of Liberty Walking half-dollars in addition to anything that catches my eye (which has transitioned more to U.S. coins and mint sets, and Vatican City coinage, whereas originally the items that caught my eye were world coins from countries that I didn't have coins from yet).

My Fav : my 1998 Satin finish Kennedy Half Dollar. I've been collecting on & off since 1980. I recently found a 1970-D quarter, but it wasn't a double die. I started out collecting all different kinds of coins, mostly "Junk Money" from Publishers Clearing House and Danbury Mint. Since December 2019 I have completed a business strike & San Francisco mint set of Kennedy Half Dollars, but I still collect any thing that I think is pleasing to my eye, or that interests me. My last purchase which I will be blogging about soon is 2 Flying Eagle cents thanks to I.R. Bama and Oobie.....LOL

My favorite coin would be the 1909s VDB because it’s my goal. I’ve been collecting for 1.5 years. I found a 1912S penny in circulation. I started out collecting squished pennies, I now collect a little bit of everything, but mainly Lincoln cents 1909-1958

Nice! 1) Mine is a 2001 Proof ASE (It is just so beautiful, and I wouldn't replace "my lady" with anything) 2) around 4 years 3) 1909 s vbd (that was a numismatics high for sure XD) 4) I stared with post 1900 us coins, and now got back to 1880 (;

My Fav coin: The Last one I added to my collection. How long collecting: 50 Plus Years. Best found in Circulation: 1861 Great Britian Penny, 1862 Belgium 10 Centimes, 1907 Silver Canadian quarter, all received as change at one time or another. The 1862 Belgium 10 Centime coin is in Uncirculated Condition! I started collected by rolling pennies for my Uncle's business in the 1960s, he ran a line of penny machines. I started collecting pennies naturally, and still do, although now I also collect Proof, Mint, Commemoratives, American Silver Eagles, and have just started a collection of all Half Dollars from 1948 to the present. I also have a large collection of world coins and tokens.

I like the Peace Dollar and the Mercury Dime best. I started collecting in 1968, my best find was a Mercury Dime I received in change about 5 years ago at the Pittsburgh International Airport in change from either the McDonalds or the Riteaid. I currently focus on Canadian Coins and I am working on a Straits Settlements type set (about 2/3 done)

I don't particularly have a favorite coin. I get what is cheap and fall in love with that one...until the next cheap ones come around. I like the classic commeratives, though. Cheers. Fodder

Favorite coin is a 2018 2 ounce pegasus silver. 2/1 error coin. But how can anyone have a favorite! Been collecting off and on for 50 years. Best thing found in circulation is a 1972 D quarter struck on a nickel blank. Started out collecting Lincoln cents and now collect so called dollars, so called half dollars, and medals. Also some commemoratives. I also am found of the 1931-S lincoln. I own a few pieces in XF condition. So the 1931-s lincoln would be a favorite of mine.

I'll give it a go... My favorite is the Flying Eagle Cent. I have been collecting 55 years. Nothing really stands out as spectacular but I did find a 1953 D dime recently. I started out collecting Buffalo Nickels, Mercury dimes, and Canadian coins.
