    I had a dealer walk up to me with two Kennedy half dollars that appeared to be bent. The strikes looked nice on both, obv and rev, but the rim was funky. I took some photographs, have a look .

    As an added bonus, I decided for the heck of it to magnify this RPM as best I could so you could see some finer details.

  4. 1955-S Lincoln Cent - Should this be a CONECA RPM?

    I bought a handful of BU rolls from an ex-dealer at the Virginia Beach Coin show last weekend.
    Sunday was extremely slow, so I decided to go through the 1954-D and the 1955-S rolls.

    What do you...

  10. 1936 Lincoln Cent thin planchet - Possible Acid treated?

    Thank You.

    No reason to be sorry, all is good. :o

    wow, this is pretty well worn. Mike D. will probably nail this on the head, and may amplify on why it is, or isn't. With the photos as is, Its definately hard to tell. I have quite a few of these but...

    Even as defined as this one is, I am almost sure it doesn't have a lot of value. I keep it as a educational piece and its a topic starter at the CONECA tables at shows.

    I agree, if any of these were EDS (early die state/stage) then it would be more meaningful.

    To the seasoned collector, they have a more focused, selective taste of what they collect.
