Love those Mercs. Great design on such a little surface.

I'd say the same of the Seated Libs. One hopes that we are going to pass from the current series to a second Renaissance of American coin designs--we're certainly (over)due for deeply artistic designs again. I'd love to see Lady Liberty restored. Personally, I'm of the opinion that Presidents shouldn't be on regular issue coins anyway, at least not for 100 years after their last term so that their actions and policies can be put in historical perspective. And even then, it's an honor that should be done sparingly.

I agree. Commemoratives should be used to honor folks like that. Ditto for currency.

I'll further add that I think commemoratives should circulate, or how does John Q. Public know someone's being honored?

1876 cc

 

Definitely the bomb! I mean all the coins are all nice and all that, but the 76 CC, I said, "Uncirculated. Naw, it looks too nice to be uncirculated." It has great detail, all there on the corn, etc., but none of that phony "blast white" of an overdipped tart of a coin. The 76 CC truly stands out as an exemplary collector coin.

 

Thanks for sharing.

65 dimes are not silver. Neither are 1965 quarters. The last silver in those two denominations was 1964.

 

Half dollars were 90 percent silver up through 1964, then had 40% silver through 1970. After that no silver.

 

 

Sort of true. In 1992 the Mint started to issue silver proof sets. So dimes, quarters and halves from 92 onward from "S" can be either silver or clad. They are almost never found in circulation but ...
