Instesd of acting like a paperweight,it spends more time
on the floor. These are impossibe to google. All you see are the coppers & nickels. Some rare pieces are of gold. The following is from Ken Potters site, it's somewhat outdated, as the ask price reflects. It's right @ 1 oz. Measures 1 3/8 X 1 1/2.

"Numistamp" plaques for all coin types from half-cents through gold! Includes all denominations/types in existence through 1978 such as the clad Kennedy half dollars, Ike dollars and Bicentennial types. These were designed by and minted for the late Mort Reed. Mort was a world renowned illustrator and columnist for Coin World for many years and wrote several books including the highly acclaimed Odd And Curious. For those who were not around during the 1960s-70s when Reed was most active, his work in Coin World was often similar to Ripley's Believe It Or Notâ„¢, the popular syndicated series seen in the national media. In the 1970s he created the Numistamp series of United States coins reproduced on 2-1/4x1-3/8" plaques that looked like large medallic stamps. The composition of those plaques reflected the coins they bore so that Large cents were produced in copper while the nickel issues were stuck in nickel or a nickel-like material, (the War Nickels in silver-like material), etc. These plaques are rarely seen today and represent a beautiful addition to anybody's collection who enjoys older numismatic memorabilia or anything related to the series they collect. We still have most types/denominations in stock at $24.95 for each plaque. Check to see if we still have what you need"

Please no Lincolns, unless a decent semi, No Jeffs unless a twitching
vaiety, war nics welcome, otherwise silver piece(s), I originally
showing this off from a yard sale find, stated I thought it
was nickel. Great series, but I'd rather have a coin(s).

So your sample is the 20cents right? What would you like to trade for (specific date/mm/grade for LWC) I have all the semi key from F up to AU.

Btw, what's your value on this?
