  1. They did run the episode last night (May 19) at 10:00pm. The episode started with a wealthy man who found his old Camaro car, then went on to an old photograph of a baseball team, then to the 1913 nickel owned by Walton.
  2. I don't see it on the TLC schedule. What day and time is it supposed to be on?
  3. US returns cultural treasures to Iraq - Including a Roman Coin From CNN News: A Roman coin from A.D. 248-250, when the Romans occupied the region. The coin had been left at the Houston Museum of Natural Science by a man who said he was a contractor in Iraq. The museum's curator of anthropology alerted federal authorities. Article: http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/meast/02/25/...dex.html?hpt=T2 Photograph of coin from US Immigration and Customs (ICE): The article doesn't identify the coin but it looks like this one from Philip I (Philip the Arab) Wildwinds ancient coin database - Antioch AE29 BMC 531:

  5. The one at the bottom looks like a girl, too. If the Boy Scouts have girl "Venturers", then what happened to the Girl Scouts? Or should I ask?
  6. The Boy Scouts commemorative silver dollar: The scout on the right looks like a girl?
  7. Using that criteria, the US could not issue coins honoring anyone. For example, George Washington, owned slaves Thomas Jefferson, owned slaves, had a mistress and so on.
  8. This one spent 50 years in a Wayte Raymond cardboard album:

  10. Coins, mummies and statues point to Cleopatra tomb BURG EL-ARAB, Egypt Egypt's top archaeologist made his version of a sales pitch Sunday, presenting 22 coins, 10 mummies, and a fragment of a mask with a cleft chin as evidence that the discovery of the lost tomb of Mark Antony and Cleopatra is at hand. Zahi Hawass showed off the ancient treasures to journalists during a tour of a 2,000-year-old temple to the god Osiris, where they were found. He believes the site near the Mediterranean Sea contains the tomb of the doomed lovers that has been shrouded in mystery for so long. However... Hawass' claim is the latest spectacular announcement by the archaeologist, who continues to capitalize on the world's fascination with ancient Egypt. He regularly unveils discoveries that are often met with skepticism and bemusement by Egyptologists abroad. In the past, archaeologists have not always backed Hawass' more enthusiastic claims and suggested a degree of caution is sometimes warranted. Yahoo News story: (Sorry, no pictures of the coins) http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090419/ap_on_...leopatra_s_tomb Here is what a Cleopatra coin looks like:
  11. Soccer Referee Nailed in Head With Coin During Match This is not the first time we've heard about soccer hooligans throwing things on the pitch during a game: bottles, cans, light flares . . . you name it. I suppose a coin isn't the worst thing that could be tossed, but from a distance and thrown just right, apparently (when you see the picture) it can leave a mark. Cardiff City manager Dave Jones insisted that the supporter who struck referee Mike Dean with a coin ruined an otherwise pulsating South Wales derby. Jones slammed as 'crazy' the actions of the Bluebirds fan, who cut open Dean's forehead and left him with blood trickling down his face in the 42nd minute of yesterday's clash against arch-rivals Swansea City. The thrower was identified by stewards and fellow supporters soon after Dean was struck. Police said one man had been arrested in connection with the incident, but more were guilty of throwing 'missiles' on to the pitch. http://badjocks.com/blog

  13. Many of these coins were brought back here to the US by returning servicemen, so most are quite common.
  14. I have had this Masonic Penny since the 1960's. It must have been used quite a lot at one time as it is well-worn.

  15. The article refers to a prohibition of importing ancient Chinese coins, not modern Chinese counterfeits of US coins. "Under the new rules, anyone entering the U.S. with such coins must have a valid Chinese export certificate or certifications proving the coins left China before the effective date of the new rule (January 16, 2009)".
