I had the day off work the other day, and it just so happen to also be the day my kennedy rolls came in. So I thought I'd really coin up the day and go to the shop as well.

I picked up 11 different canadian cents for my albums. Also a british Half Cent and a commerative canadian quarter.

For american coins I picked up a bicentennial quarter proof silver (4$), a bicentennial half proof silver (7$), a 1974 S eisenhower proof silver(6$). I got them at pretty good deals I think. Very pristine proof coins. Oh, and I also got a 1980 proof SBA because I didn't have a proof SBA yet. It was also like six bucks or something.

Oh, and nothing from my Kennedy halves. One thousands dollars of non NIFC clad.

Treated myself to this today. Bought it as a VAM 65, but after closer inspection I'm not convinced.

Bought these three Barber halves recently - fillers. They ain't no real beauties, and they didn't cost a whole lot which is understandable given their condition, but all three are semi-key dates, andI've been needing all three forever - gotta fill them holes!

Ralph, I think I would regard those as KEY dates in that series...no semi about it. Expecially that first one!

Yes, I suppose they could be considered key date coins in the series. I've got them all in a wide variety of grades except for the 1892-O, and it's my understanding that the 1892-O is THE key date, and the rest were down a rung on the ladder.
Y'know, what puzzles me is that mintage for the 1914 Barber Half was only 124,230 and, yet, it is valued (in a similar grade as these) far below these earlier dates/mintmarks - same with the 1915 (138,000) and the 1913 (188,000). Has anyone else wondered about this? I sure would like to get some feedback on this subject.

Thought I'd post my 1979 P SBA Dollar - Wide Rim/Near Date. It's the one on the left in the scan. I posted the 1979 P Narrow Rim/Far Date along with it to show the difference to those unfamilar with the series.

Oops! - forgot to mention that I just recently got the wide rim/near date - had the other one for quite awhile.

Bought at the Bryan College Station Coin show July 20th Texas.
The pickings were slim with mostly G and AG coins this was the highest overall grade at the show for My series. Could not leave without buying something.
If only I collected Morgans which is pretty much all I see at shows theses days

Cleaned Pitted but still a nicer example. Tying out some of Superdave's Tricks to try and improve my poor Photography skills.

I like that 1871 2c

I picked this up recently from a small-town shop. I suppose unless you collect Aus predecimal you would miss the significance of this halfpenny. Next down from the 1923, it's a key at 720K minted. The pics don't exactly do the coin justice--it's probably my best 1/2d.

I bought 5 1 oz. rounds of silver, 2 grams of gold, 9 walkimg liberty halves, 1 merc. dime, 3 silver rosie dimes, 1 1943 quarter, 1 2003 silver proof quarter, 1 1874 Indian Head cent appx. G-4, and a 1963 proof set in the acetate or whatever type of plastic it is. All for 150$ I was most excited about the proof set and the Indian Head cent!
