1982 50 cent piece

Post by panetta » Sun Feb 26, 2012 5:48 pm

Good day everyone, I was just wondering about the 1982 small bead 50 cent coin. On this site it is listed as a rare coin. I have 3 pieces ( 120 beads ), I read that the large beads are 118. Having 3 in my collection seems a bit strange - my luck can't be that good. Does anyone have any information on this. Thanks

I don't know where you saw that, but both of them have 120 beads (image below). I suggest you to look at the hair to be sure.

I have 2 of these with the small beads and they're in excellent condition, barely circulated. Used to collect coins as a kid back in the '80's. I also have a 1907 Newfoundland 50 cent piece in fair condition.

Any idea how I could go about selling them quickly? In my local area in NB no-one appreciates old rare things anymore.

I would try Ebay.The auction type listing is good for 7 days.Depending on your asking price,you should be able to sell.Good luck :idea:
