This one needed a proper post and explanation of why I collected it.
Oh, no it is not special or rare.
Why is this coin being featured?
Well it is how I collect and blog. Mainly I want to display one of every coin and every form of currency every made. Since that may be difficult I have to work with what I got. All errors, foreign, and oddly damaged pieces will get posted. I try to avoid repeats unless there is something new to say.
For American coins anything that fits into the previous statement, any from 2009 or newer, commemorative, plus the following:
--Cents 1958 or older
--Nickels 50 years or older from the current year
--Dimes 1964 or older
--Quarters 1964 or older
--Half Dollars any and all
--Dollars any and all
--Currency each unique series, the star notes and their unique runs, any short run
So there is a gap of American money that is not being shown, mostly the 1965-2008 regular circulating coins. I will get to them eventually but first let me try to get to one every world coin I own first. Seeing how I am still on the K countries this may take a while.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Cents / United States
Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
Value: $0.06 in Good
Sidenote: New Yorkers will instantly recognize the background.
Do you have a five cents and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
