Today's pick up is an 1858 Small Letters Flying Eagle cent. While I had a Flying Eagle already this one gets me more points. With those coin I am at 129.

After 9 days of no updates the coins traveling throughout the US finally made it home. Today you get a 1/2 cent. This is the first 1/2 cent I own.



The stuff on the back looks green in the picture, but is actually white. I don't think its verdis, anyone know what it is? Almost looks like stuff from an old cleaning.

I asked the LCS owner and he thinks its just some type of dirt/dried stuff. Its on the NGC picture, so it was on the coin when it was slabbed, so its not corrosion. Oh well. This one I purchased the slab and not the coin. Its still cool.

Well in terms of good news, if I was doing the 7070 Page 5 would be complete !!



I'm at 66% (or 2/3 complete). When I get a few more, I'll do a Dansco like layout and post picture. The emptiest is page 3, I need to pick up a few more quarters before I post the picture.

Today's is one my favorites, while the trime is cooler, the 3 cent nickel is up there with just cool coins. Also you get a pretty liberty and the simple III on the back really makes it a nice coin both Obverse and Reverse (and its not a seated liberty)

For the Half Cent, NGC said they will do an appearance review. I shipped it off today. I'll let you know what happens.

I have a lot of Brass eagles that I polish once a year. Every time I go back to re polish them, I see the same white power like stuff in the creases of the feather details from the 'Brasso' brand polishing compound after it dries.

I can usually go back over it with a soft tooth brush and water to clean off the residue. (not that I would recommend that for your coin..)

Today's new coin... This is a 1878 Trade dollar.

The United States Trade dollar was a dollar coin minted by the United States Mint to compete with other large silver trade coins that were already popular in East Asia. The idea first came about in the 1860s, when the price of silver began to decline due to increased mining efforts in the western United States. A bill providing in part for the issuance of the Trade dollar was eventually put before Congress, where it was approved and later signed into law as the Coinage Act of 1873. The act made Trade dollars legal tender up to five dollars. A number of designs were considered for the Trade dollar, and an obverse and reverse created by William Barber were selected.

The first Trade dollars were struck in 1873, and the majority of the coins were sent to China. Eventually, bullion producers began converting large amounts of silver into Trade dollars, causing the coins to make their way into American commercial channels. This caused frustration among those to whom they were given in payment, as the coins were largely maligned and traded for less than one dollar each. In response to their wide distribution in American commerce, the coins were officially demonetized in 1876, but continued to circulate. Production of business strikes ended in 1878, though the mintage of proof coins officially continued until 1883. The Trade dollar was re-monetized when the Coinage Act of 1965 was signed into law.

With the next 3 coins, I am at 69% complete and at 118.



This coin previously sold in 2013 in a David Lawrence Auction, I paid less than it sold at auction for.
