  1. When you flip the coin over on the horizontal axis (i.e. hold the coin by the left and right sides, then rotate it so the bottom goes over the top), does the image stay in the correct orientation?

    Coin Values

    Welcome to Coinpeople! What a nice find! I haven't seen one of those in years.
  3. Very nice What don't you like about them?
  4. Pennies minted before 1982 are exclusively copper which means they'll stick to a magnet, too.
  5. Hmm... I'm not an error coin expert, but I would pay money for that!
  6. Agree. I didn't even consider that Russia could have coins this old
  7. A late entry: October 11, 2018 - History of the British penny (1714-1901) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_British_penny_(1714–1901) The article covers a lot of unfamiliar ground to me, so I can't speak to it. But I've always loved these cartwheel designs!!
  8. Hi Rowellcents! Welcome to CoinPeople.com! Sorry for the delayed response! Have you found CopperCoins.com yet? They have a cool feature (http://www.coppercoins.com/advsearch.php) that lets you search for dates for special die varieties. They show pictures with the indicators to look for (like... "there is a crack between columns 3 and 4 in the Lincoln Memorial"). You might find some answers there!
  9. These are fantastic medals. How did I not see this post earlier!
  10. Well this is fantastic. Can you tell us more about it? Do you have a collection of these? Welcome to CoinPeople!
  11. Welcome to the forum! That's a fantastic find! I hope YeOldeCollector will chime in. He's knowledgable about these sort of coins.
  12. Hmm... How do you know it is gold? Looks suspicious to me.
  13. I'm conflicted. I have several series I've been working on for a decade (or two???) now because 1) I don't get to go to shops or shows more than once a year and 2) I like the hunt. I know I could find all of the coins I want online, but I like searching the tables and the shops for that perfect one. Not "perfect" as in MS-70, but... "the one". Anywho, it's frustrating at times because I won't make any progress towards completing them. But I don't want to buy overpriced slabs from Heritage.
