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.

Lightnin' Hopkins recorded a tune called "Mojo Hand" in which he sang of going to Louisiana to get himself a mojo hand. A couple years ago I was in New Orleans for a few days. On the first day while wandering around the French Quarter on foot I realized that I was in Louisiana and if Lightnin' Hopkins could go to Louisiana and get himself a mojo hand I could get my own mojo hand. So I did. I found a place to sit down and do some Google searches for "mojo hand" so I would know what ingredients to look for. The most essential piece was a High John The Conqueror root. I found a new age shop on Decatur Street. They had some roots. But they didn't have any High John The Conqueror roots. I went back online to see if there was another shop within walking distance. I found it on the corner of Decatur Street and Dumaine Street. But that shop was more about oils, crystals, and fortune telling. I asked if they knew where I could find a High John The Conqueror root. They said it was about two blocks down on the same side of the street on Dumaine Street. On the walk, before I had walked a block, I saw a shop across the street. They had a big jar of High John The Conqueror roots. I bought one. I asked if they had a green bag to put it in. They didn't. But they said I could wrap something green around it. I wrapped a five dollar bill around the root and put it in my pocket. For the next couple days that was my mojo hand. But I added things to it. A few days later I was in a graveyard on Washington Avenue in Central City. I saw some dirt on the ground next to a tomb. I realized it was genuine graveyard dirt. I picked some up and put it in my pocket. When I got back to my hotel room I put the graveyard dirt and High John The Conqueror root wrapped in a five dollar bill in a small plastic bag. I also put a small copper round with a donkey on it in the bag. When I got back home I made a cloth bag and put the contents of the plastic bag in it.

It was after I made a bag for my mojo hand that I put some coins in it. In the bag are an 1853 Three Cents silver with a hole in it, an Indian Head cent, a WWII Alabama sales tax token, a Chinese cash coin, a Japanese cash coin, an early 1900s Chinese 10 cash coin, and an aluminum agora from Israel. I also wrapped a two dollar bill around the five dollar bill that is wrapped around the High John The Conqueror root.

The mojo hand is in my pocket right now. I only take it out of my pocket when I go to bed. On the rare occasion that I forget to put my mojo hand in my pocket and realize later it is not there it is always in the first place I think of where it might be. I always have it in my pocket when I am playing music or I am at a coin store.

Well, um, yeah. Are you a practitioner of Hoodoo?

I probably know more about hoodoo than the average bear. But if I practice it at all it is only in a roundabout way. I think focusing on what I want makes things happen more than having a mojo hand does, especially since I figured out how to acquire a mojo hand. I found out toward the end of my trip that I could have just bought a prepackaged mojo hand from a tourist shop on Bourbon Street. But I went out and found the ingredients for my mojo hand individually while wandering around New Orleans by myself. Had I bought a prepackaged mojo hand I wouldn't have gone on those adventures.
