What I find fascinating is that it has a hole for the 1894-S dime.

Apparently the dime did not yet have its current legendary, almost mythic status.
It has a plug that says "RARE" on it. I believe the current version still has the same plugged hole. I could be wrong.


I checked--the current folder does not have a hole for the 1894-S.

That is nice.

Here is another photo I took in NOLA. The act that authorized creation of the New Orleans and other branch mints.

An absolutely great thread for we fellow coin enthusiasts. Just read through the thirteen pages to date and was amazed by the compilation of historical information. The smile I have upon reading through the many stories and documents certainly speaks volumes for why I enjoy this hobby so much. It's not just the physical coins that are so cool, but the history behind them.

Kudos to numismatic_student and all others contributing to the further education of we collectors.

First in series of pictures from my visit to the US Mint.

This is a 10" plate proof of George T. Morgan's beloved design.

Looks like the 3 cent nickel design. Sorry for the washed out picture - it was on a high shelf.

Very cool, but mounting looks like something my teenage son would come up with. A couple screws buried into some plexi-glass. Surely the mint could come up with a little better display than that.

I agree with you gmwatson - but apparently the mint could not...
