Second: Who owns rare coins, mostly Im interested in American Currency
Third: When the hell did they start circulating The national park quarters, and US territory quarters? I cant find them in regular pocket change.
Fourth question: How can I tell between the 1982 pennies whether they are Zinc or Copper without having to weigh them? I usually just balance it on my finger and hit it with another coin, and if it makes a high pitch "tink" sound I know its copper. Is that a good test? Or do any of you know other ways?
I love collecting coins. I Have all penny, dime, quarter and nickel folders to put every year in each slot. Of course, some are hard to find, like silver nickels. I also have Franklin half dollars and silver kennedy half dollars.
I would love to own a 1943 copper penny, a 1983 copper penny, and the 1982 dime that has no mint mark on it. I can only dream and wish haaha.
Just a curious ATSer wondering if anyone out there enjoys this as much as I do.edit on 2-12-2010 by capgirl because: (no reason given)
