  1. Happy New Year everyone from Wales
  2. Normal coins (like modern coins that I don't seriously collect, or the tons of Yugoslavia, Spanish pre-Euro, etc. coins that I get in bulk lots) are kept in zip-lock bags which are grouped together by country/continent in a file binder and kept on a bookshelf. Coins that I actively collect (My British monarch collection (so far at Charles II), my Swiss collection, US collection, Commonwealth collection, etc.) or coins that just seem pretty are kept in coin albums or in 2x2s. Proof sets and Bullion are kept in a big chest thats tucked away in a safe corner, generally when showing people
  3. Its under the google ads to the right side of your screen right next to the rss feed button :)its now called "View New Content"
  4. As some of you might know (especially those who lived in the middle east) Eid is a 3 to 4 day celebration that takes place twice a year in the muslim calendar, once after the holy month of Ramadan and again after 70 or so days. During Eid people hand out money to kids, young relatives (young as in 21 and younger, but some choose to give money or as we call it "eidiya" to all their grandchildren/nephews/nieces no matter their age) and the poor. People also wear new cloths, visit relatives and friends, visit cemeteries to pay their respect to deceased relatives/friends etc. etc. Generally

    To clarify what ccg said, in the US coins are minted inverted, that is when holding a coin like the cent straight up depending on which side your looking at you'd either see Lincoln's head as it will normally appear or a monument, Now when you turn the coin it's other side will look upside down....this is not an error and it is not unique.

    Both are common dates, I'd reckon $0.10 to $0.30 for the 1944D cent and $0.20 to $0.40 for the 1919 cent, it's hard to make out the grade from the pictures so my assumption is that the coins are graded Fine. The above values were obtained via google research and a coin collecting catalog.
  7. I'm not an expert on grading, however I remember reading somewhere that one should always grade a coin using its weakest side, in this case I'd say the reverse due to the green spots. Here are the prices for the various grades of the 1967 six pence according to the 2010 edition of the Standard Catalog of World Coins: 240,788,000 were minted and they value from $0.10 in Very Fine, $0.20 in Extremely Fine and $1.50 in Unc. I hope this helps.
  8. Welcome to the forums! You have a nice collection, especially like the "Eid Al Malam" 1979 one and the 1975 FAO issue which has a nice observe design, Thank you for sharing the pictures.
  9. In the asylum for the past 3 weeks , other than that took a break from the hobby for the past 2 years due to my last year in school and my first year in university (got skipped a year) + joining AIESEC a non-profit organization, But as I told the guys and M in the asulym,
  10. Count me in, Its always fun getting random coins from europe to shift through since most are hard to get here.
  11. In my case the initial spark happened when my mother gave me here small collection of leftover travel change and I was encouraged by a friend who used to collect. This plus support from almost everyone in my family from aunts, uncles, my grandmother, cousins and especially my dad, helped me get hooked to collecting. Most of the information I know though is from researching and the net. The coin that got me started was a 1950 East Africa King George VI One Shilling, Being a leo, I fell in love with the lion on the reverse.

  14. According to Krause standard catalog, the coin is actually a 20 centavos numbered KM# 13.2, about 2,535,000 were minted is 1916 and its value in the following grades is: F $3.50 , VF $ 6.50 , XF $18.00 , Unc $250 and BU $ 700. Hope this helps

  16. Great thread, I like your 300300 serial See! Keep it up you have an awesome collection. I recently stumbled upon this note, which also has a repeater serial, Also got a few old notes with decent/nice serials, some are crisp notes and some are pretty well used, but then again I never really paid attention to their condition... only their serial.
  17. Welcome to Coinpeople! Hope you enjoy it here.
  18. nice addition guys/gals hope we attract more experts to the forum also ... can never hurt to have enough....
  19. ahh one of my fav coins in my collections..and one of my first addition also. mine is 1950 (i dont know why ..but i love all coins minted that year....) "D" i believe. i like mine because it has one of my fav effects on a coin... the background on the coin is a bit greyish from dirt due to circulation how ever the raised part such as the lettering and eagle looks shiney and new ...giving the coin a nice shade effect. anyway back to your coin susan ...nice one and btw welcome to coinpeople
