Also on the drug charges...

Ahh... now it's starting to make sense!
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other 5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.
-- If I left my early Washington quarter book at one of y'alls house, please ring me up.

Nick , he would have to be worse than moron to put a Gold coin into a coin star machine .


I'm guessing those were the coins he pawned, the rest went into CoinStar.

Investigators said Mele sold some of the coins to a pawn shop for $4,000, then exchanged the majority of them through CoinStar change machines at grocery stores

@jimbucks and @atticguy: a presidential gold colored coins worth a few hundred, is the godless dollar coin. They are more modern dollar coins, with the presidential face on it, but does not have the inscription around the edge saying in god we trust. This will, on an ordinary coin, be etched into the rim.

The best known "godless" dollar is the Washington, and you can get those for around $25.00

On August 8th he pled guilty to 5 of the 10 drug charges. He was sentenced to 5 years on the two most serious charges (POSSESSION OF OXYCODONE and POSSESSION OF ALPRAZALAM (XANAX)), with credit for 121 days in jail awaiting trial.

He also pled guilty to 812.014(12B) GRAND THEFT OVER $20,000 LESS THAN $100,000 and was sentenced to 5 years in jail (concurrent with the above) and 10 years probation.

So much for $350K...
