Not Lost and not forgotten

Coins | user_9894

Well here I am again. I seem to have been lost in the vacuum of covid. Hope you are all well.I wanted to reduce some extra coins I had from the death of my father and decided to get a table at a local coin show. I knew it was a risk to take, but I was able to sell 4 Lots of foreign coins that I never thought I would get rid of. It paid for the table and I told them i would be back the following month.That time , I brought a group of Silver quarters and halves and I did much better.I will try again in January.It was a pleasant surprise to recoup some of the lost wealth accumulated in many ordinary coins.

1913 5c & National Money Show

Coins | user_9894

I had the pleasure of attending the National Money Show yesterday, the 29th of March, in Pittsburgh, PA. I found it to be interesting, informative and a bit different than what I expected.The ANA had several displays with some of the rare celebrity coins on display such as the 1804 Dollar and the 1913 5c. Abe Lincoln was there talking to the attendees about how history repeats itself etc. The US Mint was in attendance as well.The coin dealer tables were about 90% filled with plenty to peruse and purchase. I surveyed the tables and found that silver dollars and gold coins to be the most present for sale. Early coppers were well represented as well as currency.Had a fun time .

Railroad Currency

Odd & Curious Money | user_9894

Railroads played an important part in the 1830's through 1900's printing money for their employees and others. A research paper published by John A. Muscalus, Ph.D. shows images of more than 100 bank notes. Printed in 1971 it is a very interesting research report on this subject, and worth looking into.

1938-D/D 5c Buffalo RPM-3

Coins-United States | user_9894

Well not only did I finally find a RPM, but it has turned out to be an AU58! Just received it back yesterday from grading service. Very happy with the result. 1938-D/D Buffalo Nickel, 7,020,000 total minted. Designed by James Earle Fraser. RPM appears to be a FS-1938D-501 (Talbert), (Complete Guide to Buffalo Nickels by David W. Lange, page 177) Could there be an "S" under there? It's hard to tell.
