  1. The other day, I saw a coin rolling on the ground, and I went to pick it up. It was a 1941 cent. Ha! Weird but nice.
  2. Well now it's a 1916 cent, but it's been a while since I have been searching. I did find a 1939 cent yesterday though!
  3. 1. Done! Just found Wheatie #103 2. Not yet 2. Not yet 4. I think that's pretty much done So I'm well on schedule! Maybe I should set some new goals? How's everyone else doing with their goals?

    Sometimes, but I tend to stay away from people with spelling mistakes in the title (Pennie, nickle, etc.) and also when they aren't totally clear about what you will be receiving (random foreign coin from huge lot, 1/4 pound coins, etc. ) because people can get pretty clever with selling you stuff you don't want. A random foreign coin from a huge lot could be a Canadian penny or a Euro, which some people might want but they are very common. For a 1/4 pound of coins they could just send you a few big coins. I agree with everyone else, always check the feedback they've gotten and how much they've sold. Also if you are getting something like a silver quarter for 0.50 (which I have seen before under Buy it Now) then either the seller doesn't know what they have or you will get ripped off. Hope this helps and good luck!
  5. Thanks and wishing you the best of luck too!

  11. I got a 1918 S Wheat penny and a 1904 French 25 centimes today, euro each
  12. I wouldn't be surprised! Either that, or someone's collection has been scattered all over France
  13. And today I found a 1979 10 Centimes AU on the ground- pre euro. Now my good luck is really getting strange.
