Thanks, guys. The comments don't show up when I view the page on my phone. They only show up on the desktop. Is it the same for you? Not sure why it's this way.

I have no problem viewing it on my iPad. Very impressive Darth!

However, perhaps a little obsessed with Eisenhower's

I got an email from an old friend today. He knows I collect coins and wanted my opinion on a 1976 Ike. It's clad, circulated, etc, nothing special... Except, it's in some weird holder I can't identify. Any ideas what I'm looking at here?

Picked up this 1971-S silver proof at my LCS today. I was very pleased with how's it looked so I bought an air tite for it. Was $7.00 okay for this? If it isn't I'mstill fine with what I paid. (Also the picture optimizers wouldn't recognize that I oriented it right, so sorry if it's incorrect)

Yeah, it's the nostalgia. I was able to spend these as a kid in the early to mid 1980s, and in the 1970s my Dad would get out his coin collection every once in a while. We would go through it piece by piece with him, and he would explain the differences between proof coins, mint set coins, mint marks, etc. I always remembered the Ike. It was such a big, hefty coin. It's large size was so apparent when looking at those proof sets. Funny that he had around 70 Morgan and Peace dollars in his collection, but I don't recall ever noticing those back then. I was just enamored with all the "current" circulating coins in proof format. They blew me away!

I have no earthly idea. That is strange.

$7.00? You did fine. You can't get 'em much cheaper than that unless you buy a bunch of them all at once, and even then it's a maybe. I had to check to see if it was a nightcrawler. That's a good-lookin' '71-S proof.

Though I don't recall seeing any proofs, I do remember going to stores with my grandfather in the early 70's for a soda pop and he would pay with a $5 bill and ask the clerk if they had any Ike's and if so he would take the as part of his change. He would hand them to me as we were getting in his car. I have several of those to this day. Though heavily circulated they are priceless to me.

Great story, Toot. I recall helping my Papa crush soda cans for recycling circa 1983-84. He would give my brother an I a couple of Ikes for helping. I remember him calling them silver dollars. So I got to hear money referred to as "silver dollars" at least a few times in my lifetime.

Lol! Well we have a lot in common Darth. I would spend Saturday night at my grandparents so I could go with my grandfather to collect recycling at the golf courses and parks We would get up @ 4 am and leave by 4:30. Most of the time we would return home by noon and have his1970 4 door Dodge Dart full of gunnysacks sacks of cans and bottles. We did this until his passing in 1979. I remember getting Ike's and Kennedy's as part of the payout when we brought the sacks to the recycling center.

Sure do miss those times!

Meant to comment earlier about the link Darth - thanks for this. Its an amazing set to browse!

@Toot
1970 Dodge Dart...memories for sure as my grandfather that got me into coins drove one of these until the floorboard literally rusted through! It was his work car and it showed. The car lasted him a long time though, and most assuredly we got some Ikes while in it b/c its the car we weekly took all his change from his laundromats to the bank with. While there he often asked for Ikes.

I miss yesteryear too. Such a different way of life my Papa lived compared to the way I grew up and how I live now. At least I got a glimpse of it. Thanks for sharing the memory. We need more of this.

Not sure, but it is really cool looking.
