Art Posted September 8, 2006 Report Share Posted September 8, 2006 An interesting article in the FUN Topics magazine but Ginger Rapsus about putting together a type set based upon the "third" side of the coin. We're all familiar with the edge of our common coins either reeded or plain. There have been many US coins with lettered or designed edges. She mentions some of them in the article but actually I think there are quite a few more. Ginger focuses on the coins of the 1790s with their lettered edges - the half cents lettered "two hundred for a dollar" or large cents with "one hundred for a dollar", etc. Then jumps to the St Gaudens Double Eagles with "E Pluribus Unum" on the edge. What other US coins are there with different edges. Anyone know? Does anyone collect in this manner? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
