*** Moved by Staff to a more appropriate forum. Previously posted in US Modern Variety and Error Coins. ***


I found this at a yard sale for $15 bucks....got them down from asking price $20! I think I SCORED?

Has the 1829-F, 1930-F, 1935-F, 4X 1936-F, 2X 1973-F and 1926-F Buffalo nickels! Dats are all very visible and they all look in AU condition!

Also has 1889, 1897, 1901, 1902, 1903 and 1904 Indian Head Pennies, 3 has the liberty head band visible and 3 you can't see any letters on head band but are toned a pinkish color!

Opened it and saw the backs are taped....acetone should get the tape residue off right?

Mint marks for the Buffs are on the back under the "five cents"...F is either the designer or engraver
Unless it's from Philly (no mint mark)

Check NumisMedia.com for value to grade

True, but you may get differential toning where the tape is preventing surface oxidation. I would chop up this display to properly preserve the coins.

I haven't seen the coins in hand, of course, and wasn't trying to be a smart-alec, but gimmicks like this are usually made up of low grade common dates.

I'd keep it as is. Nothing to loose and makes for a great display item.

Nice beginning. Set them free followed by a dip in acetone. Should take care of any residue from the tape.

Keep it as is and put in your own yard sale for $20 and you're ahead! If you keep it, I'd get the coins out of the acid cardboard.
