The $275 dollar mistake

Coins-World | BossX

On Wednesday, I went to the dentist which is about 45 minutes from my house. So that morning I searched for coin dealers in the area. And I found one that was about 5 minutes from the dentist office. Our appointments went well ( no cavities! 😀) so then I went to the shop and purchased the following:

Various world coins (I will list them in a following post)
1996 mint set (with W dime)
So we came home and I looked over the coins and I found a 1957 Spanish 50 ptas. According to NGC values it is worth $275!!!! 💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰 The reason for the value is a star with the number 58 and edge lettering.

I hope to have more finds like this!

P.S I will be back at the store because I left my wallet there 🙁

Be sure to keep your eye out for the 1957 50-Pesetas with the BA in place of the star while you search.

I couldn't reply at the post; you asked the question if Nurnberg was near the Nurbering (sp?). No, Nurnberg is in the eastern part of Germany in Bavaria (N of Munich). The famous racetrack is in the western part of Germany closer to France and Belgium.

I forgot to say maybe you wish the dentist had a reason for you to go back and then you could try your luck again. No, what am I saying? What an awful thing to have to go back to the dentist, just go straight to the coin shop :)
