pictured here is a 1971 1 cent flawed planchet...but with an embelished 2x2. I was working through a lot of error coins with my young daughter nearby. she watched me put coins into 2x2 holders and then write on them and put them into a box to file later. She asked me if she could do one too. I thought to myself that I would just redo that coin later when she wasn't around.

I watched as she carefully put it in the 2x2 and stapled it shut and then she labeled it and put it in the box while I was doing something else.

This is what I discovered weeks later in that box...this coin will never leave this holder and will always stay in my possession.

Yes a keeper for sure, might even want to put the 2x2 in a plastic envelope might help preserve the ink?

That made me smile. I think papeldog has a good idea. You may even want to print out this thread and add it to the envelope. You may have sparked an interest for coin collecting in your daughter

Now this is when "slabbing" adds value!

A Keeper... I would look at one of the Lighthouse Do-It-Yourself slabs and cut out the foam to fit the 2x2...

This is a fantastic Christmas present... The days where the kids give you these types of things are so fleeting... before you know it, she will be off to college.

Love it.

There's a lot of love on that 2X2.

as you can see...hearts, flowers, Dad, Mom, and her own name (which I covered up for privacy reasons). It's funny how a little thing like this can tug on the heartstrings. Thanks for the kind words and Happy New Year to everyone!
