I got a 1946 Dime in change today. And last week I picked a 64 quarter out of a cash till. :ninja:

In the return pocket of a Coinstar machine at Walmart, I found a handful of coins including 2 silver roosies and one 1892 A Greece silver half Drachma. The Greek coin went for about $10usd on ebay.

Not a horrible design, Clive. How is it in person?

 

Not as good. The relief is a bit odd when in the hand but I still really like it. As £2 coin designs go it is above par.

 

It certainly beats the likes of this:

i got a 2010 5p the other day

new currency? in july? thats rare

 

It usually is! Although I have 2010s of the 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p so perhaps the mint has different policies this year.

The Burns £2, Kew 50p and Guides 50p have also been struck and are in the system somewhere.....

I have one of each in UNC (not BU)

I have to confess I did buy them though.

 

Also got hold of a 2009 Henry VIII Crown in UNC at the same time, up to present (as far as I know) these have all been in BU.

Oh right, yes, they are very easy to get your hands on but I'm not one to pay Royal Mint prices and so I only pick them out of circulation. Much more fun. :ninja:

Now that I'm working again, I have cause to get lots of quarter rolls to feed the buses and snack machines. Of late I've noticed a lot more early clad quarters in surprisingly good shape -- easily VF to VF+, with that gorgeous deep sculpture that's so horribly missing from our modern washers examples. I guess people are circulating anything that will spend until the economy really gets going again...

Not so easy as you might think, those from the mint are in BU not standard UNC.

The two types when shown side by side are quite different in finish.

It is funny you mentioned that because the past few days I have gotten several 1965-69 Washers that are nearly BU. See above, early stuff is coming out of the woodwork because people need to spend it.

Well, actually, I meant 'washer' in the sense of flat and featureless... :ninja: Just imagine how some of the SLQs would've looked if they'd been struck as deeply as they used to. Mmmm.

 

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's what's going on -- people are spending whatever's at hand because they need to. Sad in one way... but lucky for us in another.
