Pre-Lincoln
« on: July 29, 2019, 11:31:58 PM »
My daughter and I found a batch of 150 pre-Lincoln pennies.  Unsearched :-)  Should get here today...now that will be fun!  We'll post what we find.

A batch of Indian Heads then? That will be fun to search, Chief.

Yep should be a lot of fun. Also when you get through if you have any duplicates you can't use I am looking for a few dates of Indians for my circulated grade set....that doesn't imply I have a higher grade set, I don't. But I wanted to work on a circulated set.
I have six so far...I think.

I'll let you know what we find.  If there are any wheat backs that you are looking for we have been collecting for years and have a few hundred...ok, thousands :-)

Pretty sure the few of those I need are expensive.

Update...pretty disappointed with this batch.  Not as advertised but we did pick out a few gems.

Sorry you didn't find much, Chief. To me the fun part is the search, but finding something special sweetens the pot.

Bruce, I agree, it's about the hobby!  The 1909 VDB was a pleasant surprise.

What is the date on the flying eagle?

The 1857 in about that condition tends to sell retail at around $25-30 USD and a similar price for the 1858.
Any collector of types need one (so demand is strong) as the 1856 was a pattern and no other dates were minted.

Actual damage on a coin will drop the price but I don't think any flying eagle cent goes completely unwanted by someone.

Dale, looks like an 1858 for the flying eagle.  2 Cent is an 1866.  Good finds both :-)  That 1906 Indian is in VF condition at the least.  Not what we were hoping for but some cool stuff.  Check your mail in a day or two.

Pretty Indian head... That 1882 isn't to bad, either :-)
