    Copper (half cents are fav), working on complete buffalo nickel collection
  1. To me, it seems that this coin might be coated with something. Some areas on the edge and seem to show copper and there's the detail noted on the previous post. Weight of the coin may be a little tough because with a +/-5% tolerance allowed on the weight by the mint, the weight of the copper may be within that tolerance and so it would be difficult to definitively say that the copper has been removed. +/- 5% = allowable mfg tolerance(might be 10%, can't remember) Total zinc/copper ratio = .975/.025 * 100% = 2.5% but 0.8% of that is planchet alloy so pure Cu plating percentage of total is
  2. Fantastic buys. I would say the 1855 grades AU-55 minimum from the pic, ANA standards.
  3. According to thecentproject site, they have what I found the easiest marker. A crease in the seven which is only present on large date. http://www.thecentproject.com/sort1970.php
  4. The "mailman" didnt bring it, they kept trying to deliver when no one home, but it finally found its way home.
  5. Is that DDoouubblling on MMOONNTICELLO or just reflection??
  6. How in the world is honest Abe gonna breathe
  7. My wife had a relative in England a few weeks ago.
  8. Looks like my chest did on the operating table 17 weeks ago At least one of us healed.
  9. I am part of the cent project so I just sorted thru 5000 cents. Found 1919, 1930D, 16 other 40's-50's wheaties (wow, they are getting harder to find) 17 S mint cents and a couple of BU 60's. 6 canadian cents and one cool but mystifying token on which the words translate into memory of marriage with the basillica de guadalupe on it. Looked it up real quick and apparently the groom gives the bride these Arras tokens http://www.omnicoin.com/coins/933952.jpg Upgraded my "circulation" cent collection, added to exonumia collection
  10. See the following for an explaination http://www.coinpeople.com/index.php?showtopic=5193
  11. Farthing or 1/2 penny, looks like George II so probably 1746.
  12. Looks to me like it might be a weak strike (rev) MS62?? Hard for me to tell rub on the high spots from picture but the detail on the front seems excellent.
