Buffalo Nickels ~ V Nickels ~ Shield Nickels


I have a complete set of Buffalo nickels. Some tougher dates are in high grade. There are no overdates but I do have a nicer genuine 1937 D Three Legged Buffalo and 1938 D over S in here. I have some nice duplicates as well.

Jefferson Nickels


I'm saving uploading these for last. I might know how to take pictures by then and these are my pride and joy. I have tried to assemble a complete set of uncirculated, well struck, attractive Jefferson Nickels here and also have many nice duplicates of the tougher ones. Nothing much here yet.

Jefferson Nickel Proofs


I have completed my collection of all the US Jefferson Nickels from 1938 to date including proofs from 1938 to present. I have all of the "Red Book" listed varieties and a few not listed there. I concentrated on the best quality and full steps that I could find over the past 40 years. My avatar is my favorite Jefferson, the 1971 No S proof of which there are only an estimated 1,655 minted.

Capital Plastics Jefferson Nickel Set 1938 - 1964D


There's a very nice BU set of my second best duplicate Jefferson Nickels in a large Capital Plastics holder in here from 1938 to 1964 w/o proofs and an additional 3 BU War nickel sets in Capital holders.

Jefferson Nickel errors and varieties


This is a gallery of what major and some minor Jefferson nickel varieties and errors I have accumulated. They fill in the holes, but not all are uncirculated.

US Dimes and Half Dimes


I don't have very many US dimes. Mainly those for a type set. These images were mostly taken with a microscope camera. There is obviously more luster than images show.

US Quarters


Many of these are microscope images converted to gray scale black and white. They do generally look much better. The blotches seen are sometimes toning. Besides a fair collection of type quarters here, I may have close to or a complete set of 1964 and prior silver Washington quarters. Even some of the tougher early years are in higher grades.

US Half Dollars


I think I like US Half Dollars the best other than nickels. Many of the images here are also flat microscope images that are tuned to gray scale. I have some others yet to put up and some Kennedy halves in nice mint state that I will skip posting. I have almost a second set of higher grade Franklin Halves already assembled as well.

United States Dollars


I don't have too many silver dollars but I have a few very nice ones . I do have enough for a minor type set. They look a lot better in hand than these lousy pictures.
Other more recent dollars will be in an update.

US Type Coin Set and US sets/subsets


I intend to sort out a best of, or only one of, group of coins for this album to make up my scattered type coin set. There are also hand collated various sets in here, proof and mint sets and the like.

US Mint Medals and Silver Eagles


Silver content coinage, rounds, bars and medals. Many of these have added collector value and are surely worth more than the "spot" price of silver.

Military Payment Certificates


I only have MPC's from the Series 641 and have assembled a complete set. These are from the Viet Nam War era. Not terribly hard to find or afford for most people but I think it is a very attractive and interesting series.

World's Fair Exposition Medals and Tickets


I try to collect a smattering of fairly nice examples of medals here. I try to match them with a ticket or set of tickets for as many Pre World War II Expositions or World's Fairs as I can afford. Some of the tickets are elusive and expensive in presentable condition. So I am still on the lookout for a few. Some were printed by bank note companies, so they are cousins to numismatics in my opinion. There are some beautiful medals that are affordable. There are some very rare ones that I'll probably never have. I do believe, I have at least one medal for every major exposition in the US and a few from outside of the US.
I am partial to Exposition medals from France.

Big Lucky Penny and Nickels Souvenirs


I don't know why I like these so much. I think it is because when I was a kid one of my friends had one and it amazed me how big and heavy they were. There are some valuable ones out there and I do believe that the Buffalo Bill one I use here as my thumbnail is the only one of these I have ever seen. It is probably my favorite.
Some of these are crossover "medals" from my Exposition and Worlds Fair album.

All kinds of odds and ends that I find interesting or collectible that have to do with numismatics other than coins. These will be described in the descriptions accompanying the image.

North & South Dakota Souvenir Dollars


There are basically 10 medals in what I consider the North Dakota Souvenir Dollars set having an Indian Head design on the obverse and having different reverse themes for each year starting in 1971 and ending in 1980. There is a Copper version of the 1971 NDSD.
I have seen a possible wrong planchet 1972 Copper version. There may also be an error variety of the 1972 or that might be the wrong planchet one I mentioned.

For the South Dakota Souvenir Dollars, there are also 10 basic medals to that set and they ran from 1971 to 1980 as well. On these there is an Indian on horseback and Mount Rushmore is in the background. The obverse legend reads "Under God The People Rule". The reverse again has a different theme for each year.

Coincidently, I did find an unusual and scarce 1972 Indian Head South Dakota Souvenir Dollar and bought it. Perhaps this is the variety mentioned as an error for the North Dakota set?
It has the same obverse as the 1971 North Dakota Souvenir Dollar except for the date but shares the same "Pheasant Capital of the World" reverse as the "normal" SDSD with the Indian rider. Why that variety exists I do not know?

There are other North and South Dakota Souvenir Dollars but not with these obverse designs. I only collected these for the Indian themes.
