most of my hoard is in private mint bullion round style stuff for volume reasons but here is some of my more interesting stuff up for comment. I have been getting bored with volume and venturing into more interesting or historical stuff with disregard for grade. still like the bang for the buck lol.
no point in getting the expensive stuff because I will probably die before I sell this.

ooooooops forgot to put the whole and halves in the pic lol
nice large cent and 3 cent in there.


$5 gold indian head. I think the reverse stamping is so cool. why couldnt they make this full size! if it was as big as an eagle it would be the most sought after coin ever due to the overwhelming coolness factor.



anyone know what this dime sized coin from 17xx is?
it looks like the silver dollar except the perimeter has writing instead of a row of stars. the back is completely lost.



i like collecting coins in sets of "before and after" circulation.
sometimes its hard to believe its the same coin.


this would be a really nice half dime if some dummy didnt shoot a hole through the head


sometimes the dirt makes it look better lol.
i know what this US minted coin is. does anyone else?


like patina? I have no idea what happened to this one but I assume it was stored in acid lol.
the other two, top one is a half dollar but I forget which one. I had to do a rubbing to figure out what the image was.
the one on the right appears to be a washer but I think its made of silver.


not real currency but close enough to scare the FEDERAL ponzi assoc.



supposedly a spanish 1808 coin from a shipwreck. amazing condition if the story is actually true.


still trying to figure out what this hungarian medal is.
apparently this is the only one ever made because I have never had so much trouble finding information about something.


i know about hyperinflation but wait until hyper-deflation when everyone else burns their worthless bills and I have the only one left making me the richest sob on earth!

It looks like a 1/2 reale or 1 reale Spanish Colonial coin.

The 1908 dated U. S. minted coin is from the Philippines.

And yes, most of them did come from the sunken Admiral Gardner ship that sank when carrying tons of these coins, including mine.

They're harder to find with good details and luster (like mine).

O would have thought the copper should have turned green and dissolved but I guess without oxygen at the bottom of the mud it can be preserved well

I have one of those X Cash coins from the Admiral Gardner shipwreck. Pretty neat coin I think, and very much documented so it is probably the best way to own some real sunken treasure.

Like the older us coins....you get history + precious metals content.....better than bullion which can be boring. Gotta mix it up

The story is true. It also cause a nice little fight between the East India Company and Matthew Boulton. The EIC thought that since they had lost them and hadn't managed to get them to India, they shouldn't have to pay Boulton for striking them. Boulton of course felt that he had done his job striking them like he was contracted for and he had turned them over to the EIC representatives. If they lost them after that it wasn't his problem. It took several years before Boulton was finally paid. (By that time Boulton had died and the debt was paid to his son Matthew Robinson Boulton who was now in charge of the Soho Mint.)
