Wikipedia's Featured Article of the Day

Recommended Posts

Just yesterday I was thinking it has been a while since I've seen another coin-related Wikipedia featured article.

Then today's happened! A coin near and dear to Art's collection:

Oh, I like that first sketch, with the hand holding the design elements! That would have made a lovely dime.

Until there was a perfectly placed die crack - "Lady Liberty cracked her fingernail!"

I do. A 1953 MS66fb. Beautiful colors and probably the most solid non-proof strike in my collection

There's been a drought but... November 16, 2017 featured the Susan B. Anthony dollar! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_B._Anthony_dollar

I rather like the coin. It is the youngest "obsolete" issue I learned about when I started collecting in the mid-90s.

A few days ago, the top article on Wikipedia was again coin-related. This time it featured the Illinois Centennial Half Dollar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illinois_Centennial_half_dollar

I must say it is a very handsome coin. Does anyone out there have one?

Sunday, February 11, 2018 - Indian Head gold pieces

I've always been captivated by this series. I don't own a single Indian Head gold coin, but they are simply iconic to me. I truly don't have words to describe it.

 

Does anyone out there have one of these?
