holy cow, I can't believe what I plucked from my pocket change today:





a little cruddy, some obvious damage on both sides, but still a very cool pull from circulation. I have no idea where I got it, it was in my pocket at the end of the night. a one hundred sixteen year old coin (was) still floating around in circulation. I'm sure there are more. also one of the oldest coins I've ever found in circulation.

worthy of the dancing banana.

I've had some amazing fortune this year, as far as finding interesting/collectible coins. I hope it continues.

it continues!

an unusually lengthy post today, but absolutely necessary, as you'll see.

my friends, today I walked over to the landlord & paid my rent. standing in the kitchen talking to landlord's wife, coins/collecting came up in conversation. long story short, she gave me a huge batch of loose coins to search thru. so I brought it all home and began sorting & counting & searching.

$240 in loose change, most of it now all rolled up:




and here's the small assortment of stuff I pulled from that, which i'll go on about directly:




4 bicentennial quarters (1 P, 3 Ds), 5 Nebraska Homestead quarters, 3 of which are DDRs, 7 LWC, 2 old Jeffies, a 1961-D Roosevelt dime (silver!), and a 1995 one pound coin from GB. the best coin is saved for last, and it's not the silver dime.

























this 1955-D was improperly cleaned at some point:
















2015-P Nebraska Homestead quarters, the first one is WDDR-107:






the next one is WDDR-114:







as previously mentioned, I saved the best for last... this one is WDDR-005, one of the few 'best of' varieties! I was stoked when I found this one!






the doubling of the well pump handle in window L3! that's awesome!



of course, all of this is worthy of the dancing banana.

Excellent. I guess the mint was full of baloney saying the move to digital die production would eliminate DDO and DDR's. They are still out there.

I'm sorry if this is answered somewhere else or if it's a sensitive topic, but does anyone know what happened to Gary?
