Today I received two Tallgrass Prairie quarters.

Now the only one left that I still need to get from circulation from last year is the Weir Farm quarter.

Then it is onto finding all of them but from the philly mint.

In Frankenmuth MI, when I was finished purchasing my coins from the coin dealer, I received 2.50 in coins back as change from my transaction. Well low and behold, one was a SBA dollar coin, 1979-P. It turned out to be the scarcer wide rim, near date, in AU-58. I'm not sure if the dealer knew that he gave me that or not...

Years ago I was at two different coin shops in Frankenmuth, MI. One was in town and one was in the old school house building.

Awhile ago I was helping my mom clean out the washing machine and found a Buffalo nickel and a wheatie! (And a few bits of spending change).

1974S silver proof Ike today from a customer. Have scored a couple clad proof Ikes in the wild and also a silver unc a couple years ago, but this is my first silver proof.

Old post I know, but I just saw this now and it just reminded me that my mom used to be a lunch lady at a middle school and there was one student a few years ago who brought in 1979-S proof half dollars on multiple occasions - perhaps 1979 was a parent's birth year? Presumably the kid didn't realize there was anything special about these coins.
