Opinions on ATB 5 oz. coins? by Trevor
I've sort of been in and out of this hobby over the years. I recently discovered the 5 oz. ATB series. I bought one of the Arches coins, because it's a National Park that's close to me, and I've enjoyed visiting many times. What are the opinions on this series? It turned out to be a lot larger...

Managed one 40% half coin dumping in Vegas by [email protected]
Only dumped 80 bucks worth of halfs from one of the few (rare) casinos that still spit out coins on some machines. Got a 1966 and even won $2.50 before I quit ahead of the game so to speak. The 1943 Australian penny still rates at the weirdest coin dump find (from a half dollar machine). Did...

ANA in Chicago was great, as usual.

1914 nickel in change by Richard L. Hall[_3_]
I received a 1914 nickel in change at a deli in Herndon, VA the other day. The coin would grade good. I originally thought it was dateless but a look with a magnifying glass clearly showed the tops of the 1914--no doubt about the date. I was even more surprised when my 2013 Coin Digest showed...
