Sebrabo!

Those look great. I am also curious as to how the Netherlands 5 will wear and it's an interesting coin. I am still carrying the (formerly gold-plated) Morgan. I have yet to get current pics.

Wonderful photos everyone! I have been lurking this thread for a while and can't get enough! Seeing all these pocket pieces made me want one myself. I settled with three each of nickels, dimes and quarters, plus the two coins below. They are all face-value coins so it's more of an experiment. Here are the photos from starting (January 8, 2018) to current-ish (July 11, 2019) photos:






And here are two new pieces I'm starting now. The ASE was actually already a pocket piece, given to my father by his old employer. All the salespeople had them and the they could "challenge" someone if they weren't carrying theirs - whoever was wrong had to buy the other a BEvERage. It seemed lonely so I went to the local coin shop for its Canadian cousin.

Welcome, Shoeplier! Those look like good choices. I don't want to carry small coins, but I have been considering adding another large coin to the pocket and a silver Maple Leaf would be a nice fit with the Morgan. Whatever it ends up being, I want to start from UNC so I can really appreciate the wear over time.

I figured this thread needs a bump, so here is my 6 month update.

1921-S Morgan (since Christmas 2018). This is a different Morgan than the one in my last pictorial update; that one want into a Salvation Army kettle last December and I started this one about a week later.





1933 Half Crown (since April 2019). First two pics are of this coin today; the third and fourth are the same coin the day it came home from the LCS, just before it went into the pocket. It has had no extra "help" besides jingling along with the others and rubbing between fingers.







1964-D Kennedy half. Started last week; swapped out the 1969-D half that I had been carrying since January. The whole thing was toned dark brown, it has lightened up nicely already in less than a week.

I have carried a '78 ike and a '97 Kennedy half in my coin purse for 20+ years. The other day my Ike came up missing. I knew it had to have fallen out of my coin holder somewhere in my day, figuring I would wait it out and see if it reappeared.

Well, well, WELL last night I had to brake suddenly in my car and out slide my Ike from under the passenger seat!! Whoooooooop whooooop I can't even explain the smile on my face looking down at that shiny Ike on the floor board.
