Re: 1954 bills

Mags, I can’t tell you a value on your banknotes but if you look on eBay or get out to a coin show in your area you will find that your bills are worth more then face value no matter what shape they are in . You just have to market them correctly and find a buyer . Lots of people do it,,

If your like me , I just buy what I can afford a...

Re: Unicorn's head different on one of my 64 half dollars

I sure don’t know much about the dies that are used for making coins but if the die is polished would it not remove the die surface, that would leave more protrusion on the coin would it not. This coin looks to be missing protrusion ( by that I would mean the tongue or bit in the horses mouth , what...

Re: 1954 5 dollar note

I’m sure you will get someone’s interest in that low a serial number . What prefix does it have. Interest would really jump if it’s a Devils Face Bill.

Coin counting machines

Just looking for a way to vent!! I don’t mind natural wearing on a coin, most everything I collect is found in circulation. But I sure hate the way coins are being marked up so badly from the coin counting machines :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
