Coined For Money: Round-Up Sept. 10-16, 2012

Quiet week for coins but big real world news dominated the headlines.

Remembrance ceremonies on September 11 were as moving as ever.

This on ABC news story about a Vermont store owner who stopped using pennies will give back change rounded up to the nearest nickel. At most he will lose 4 cents per transaction. If he had 100 customers a day per month that all gained 4 cents he would lose $120 a month about $1,440 a year.

Iraq is getting new coins for 2013 there is a network strong enough to distribute it.

I featured the rarely seen in circulation Eisenhower dollar.

2 dollars worth, for Comments/Questions click here.:

I have a 1914s wheat cent and the mint mark looks repunched. I have looked all over the internet to find any possible information on this and whether such a coin could exist. It is in extra fine condition. If this is possible what would the value of this cent be?

This one has not been verified in of my resources either.

Were this to be verified it would be $150.00 in EF.

It would be quite expensive to verify as none exist so take good pictures and ask around a lot before you go forward.
