And for anyone listening, small Dusty old towns with small town Banks still allow the possibility that somewhere in the back of the vault they'll have 50 cent pieces and all you need to do is look at the first one to know if you're in the right era

They used to call me the 50 cent girl at school because I always paid my lunch money and in 50 pieces

But that was better than when dad was looking for silver nickels. It sucks getting your allowance in rolls of nickels after he's already picked them! LOL

It does indeed.

Oh wow, jeez that is quite the story. Gold coins in stockings? Sign me up! I only got into coin collecting two years ago, and I'm rather young for the hobby so I've got a lot of time to spend!

No problem, all I want to do is help and learn myself when it comes to this. Sounds good to me! We're in the same time zone haha. I'm a teenager, and as teenagers do, we stay up late.

Wow! Just read your second post and I'm very intrigued. Wish I got into coin collecting at an earlier age but oh well. That is quite the experience and story!

I grew up literally with newspapers over the whole kitchen table and both sinks full of warm water soaking off stamps from envelopes and whatnot. Then as kids my brother and sister and I would spend a million hours looking through the big ol volumes of stamp identification books back before computers. we would go through to find the anomalies the color the country that everything based on the word descriptions for most of them to find out the value. tedious is the easiest word and the most PG that I could use for that crap. But it was fun because you never knew what you would find

He got us into auctions in unusual places as a hobby. one time he bought an old timers volumes of stamps that they've been collecting forever as part of an estate sale. Lo and behold in one of those humongous volumes we located a stamp that we verified and New York worth $135,000.

He paid 100 for the lot. this Pocket change coin hunting is really addictive and I find myself dashing for the phone with every coin I pick up. Hahaha better than bad habits that could also get you money.

I'm not 50 yet and I'll leave my age at that. But I really appreciate your guidance!

Get some rest even though we're all schooling at home right now. I've got to go to sleep or I won't wake up in time for my eight year olds zoom class in the morning.

Take care of yourself. and I have no idea how to send personal messages so everybody reading, y'all take care too!

Some helpful hints for you...
Try to never touch coins with your fingers, especially silver... Oils in your pores get on the coin and can cause permanent stains.
If you touch the coin, only the rim.
Never clean a coin. Only exception is to use pure acetone from the hardware store (not nail polish remover) to soak off gunk, then rinse with distilled water.
Ask lots of questions, there is no such thing as a stupid question.
