  1. Silver 1946 nickels do exits but not with the S mintmark above the Monticello.
  2. Back in 1998 I like so many started saving the Statehood quarters. I purchased the Dansco P&D album and pulled nice quarters from circulation. I could always count on finding the new issues a few weeks after they came out and traded some P's for D's with some fellow Coinpeople. When the series neared its completion they decided to add on the 6 territories. That's when the "Problem" started. The coins stopped showing up in circulation. I've seen several reasons given for this. 2009 wasn't a good year for the mint. Mintages were way down. they spent a lot of time with the different Lincoln cents and due to the recession and glut of Statehood quarters the banks were not calling out the new coins. Whatever the reason I only have 3 of the 12 Territorial quarters pulled from circulation. (I did purchase a mint set for 2009 so I do have them just not the nice coins from circulation). It didn't stop there." America the Beautiful" series started but the coins never made it here. I have 1 of the 10 2010's. Four 2011'S and four 2012's. it wasn't til 2013 that they showed up with any consistancy (I have all ten) Since then I have found almost all the Philly versions of the coins (29 of 33) and a Few Denver versions(10 of 33). The series comes to an end the first quarter of next year. So whats next? A bill calling for another state series has expired and though there are several more up for consideration(Famous women being one), it looks like we will get a new reverse at least for the final 3 quarters of 2021. I for one hope the mint gives the quarter a rest. I'm sure there will be a new design foe 2026 and our nations 250th birthday. I hope we stick with "Crossing the Delaware" until then and consider a new "series" after that. thoughts?
  3. Sorry. I don't see anything. The 1970S DDO has very clear doubling in the "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST".
  4. If its authentic $100 is a great deal. How much of a gambler are you?
  5. Does the seller have a good reputation? Whats the price? Could just be the lighting but the coloring looks like 2 different coins.
  6. Just my opinion but it looks like glue or some other foreign material that stuck some coins together. I vote PMD but thats just my opinion.
  7. You could use a scale also. put a pre'67 quarter on one side and your '67 on the other. If they balance its a 80% If they don't its a 50%.
  8. Interesting. Where did you dig it? Anything on the reverse?
  9. I think I posted somewhere in the asylum my recent CoinStar find. It included 61 Half Dollar coins.ns.
  10. Short answer. Peace dollars are just a type of Silver Dollar.
  11. Without seeing it in hand I would agree with Colin. PMD.
  12. So far as I know only two 1982Dsmall date bronze cents have been verified. so they do exist.
  13. My oldest son has been living in Ecuador for some time now and as many of you know they use US currency. The Sacajawia Dollar coins are the most commonly used coin but recently 2018 Kennedy half dollars have started to show up with regularity. You can't even get them from the banks here.
  14. Dansco 8176 is Ike Dollars with proof only issues included.
  15. Fine. Maybe refering to the purity of the metal?
  16. Interesting that Durez Plastics and Chemical, Inc. (North Tonawanda, New York) was one of the companies trying alternative materials for cents. They were located a few miles North of me. The location is now a empty , contaminated, field.
