I will try to post some photos (or scans) later, when I have some time. I estimate something between 3,000 and 4,000 coins. Average cost per coin is around 10¢, or so.
In similar size coins I have also found a Jamaica, 1966 5 shilling (Commonwealth Games) and eleven Eisenhower dollars
Can I ask some silly questions re. the "Ikes"?
Is it normal for these to show a copper colour on the edge? I understand they are a copper core so, presumably, it will show at the edge.
Is there significance with different mintmarks? I have 1971 D mintmark, 1972 D, 1974 D, 1976 (Liberty Bell) with D and no mintmark (Philadelphia?) and 1978 D. Denver must be the common one. I intend to list the duplicates on eBay but don't want to inadvertently sell off a scarce one.
Also found, so far, several New Zealand, Fiji and New Guinea pre-decimals. Those I am interested in.
When I have finished sorting and identifying (and extracting what I am interested in) many will go on eBay in suitable sized lots for reasonable postage.
