  1. Found a 1968-S cent, in uncirculated (red, original, untoned), condition.

They also hope the dollar pieces will rev up interest in the Sacagawea dollars, which have been little-used. ''The dollar coin is a valuable educational tool -- much like the 50-state quarter series

  11. Yeah, Stu. I guess Doc will be back later to confirm, but the silver collored (white pot metal?) core seems obvious. Also, most evident on the obverse at 7-8 o'clock, is the bubbling that is usually associated with casting.
