When I first posted about the Roanoke Colony half-dollar, I did not include any of the associated ephemera in my collection. So, I thought I'd "make a mends" and post a couple of interesting items. I especially like the advertisement for the memorial coin on the back of the FDC.

Wow ... how do you find all this?

Suppose you are not 110 years old ... so there must be a source to acquire all this tremendous ephemera.

Secret?

Very funny! No, I'm not 110 but I hope to get there some day!

My secret? My patented 3 step process is as follows:

  • Read as much about the series as you can in books, old magazines, etc. so that you know what is out there.
  • Attend as many local/regional/national coin shows as you can.
  • Buy when the opportunity presents itself -- you won't know when (if) you'll see the piece again.
Not very sexy, but it has worked for me over the years.

Pretty nice info. Too bad the coins are missing. I imagine you have them in the slabs though.

@wquinn: Yes, nearly all of my classic commemoratives are in PCGS holders. Almost all of the related holders/mailers I have purchased (and displayed here on CCF) have been empty at the time of purchase. Sometimes they did come with a certified coin I was buying, but mostly I bought them without a coin or coins.

A worthy bump considering commems' more recent post.
