  • CCPIA: Then and Now

    6 May 2015 | 2:04 pm
    The Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act of 1983 (CCPIA) has been in effect for more than 30 years and was massaged through the legislative process over a 13-year span.  The fact that this law has withstood many challenges and is still regarded by most as a fair and well thought out piece of legislation, places it in a class with few parallels.  The reason for that can surely be ascribed in part to a deliberative process in its creation that focussed intently on well articulated concerns from diverse interests.

  • Surviving the chase

    11 Feb 2015 | 9:49 am
    Once I heard about a collector who didn't care what he had to pay for a coin, and cared even less what he could eventually sell his collection for.  I have yet to meet him, but he probably does exist—somewhere.  More typically, collectors envision their accumulations as having some value above and beyond the ethereal benefit that comes from personal satisfaction.  But is that really true?  Do we stand a chance, financially, of surviving the chase?  Most of us don't think about that too much, perhaps as a defense mechanism to ward off anxiety attacks.  But…
  • Did the Ancients believe the Earth was round?

    10 Feb 2015 | 8:26 pm
    A debate over whether the ancients knew the world is round has been simmering for centuries, and still pops up now and then.  In the February 1998 issue of The Celator, Michael Marotta presented a well thought out argument for the affirmative ("Ancient coins show they knew it was round"). Examining the literature and numismatic evidence, he concluded that the ancients did indeed know the world is round and that the globes depicted on ancient coins (both Greek and Roman) are sometimes a representation of the Earth.  Evidence and interpretations in these sorts of debates may continue…

  • A type set compilation of Paul I coinage (1797 - 1801)

    2 Jul 2015 | 9:24 pm
    I thought I'd compile a type set of Paul I coinage of what I have. This is missing some varieties including the gold five ruble, 2 kopek with no mintmark, efimok (heavy ruble), and the "polu-poltin-nik". I guess I can always add them down the road. That said, if you group them together, they can look quite neat.   What I have done is to simulate a prototype album for this series. All coins had to be measured individually as coins were not uniformly struck back then.   http://gxseries.com/numis/digital_album/paul_i_page1_small.jpg  …

As you might know, the collection of Russian coins once owned by Grand Duke Georgii Mimkhailovich Romanov "lives" there. Coins were not on public view at the museum for a long time, but finally some coins went back on display and the exhibit was open to public yesterday. I have a few blurry pictures showing the layout and the feel. Hopefully Alex can help me in posting them  here. Better pictures will be available in the near future.

  • Sixteen More Wheat Pennies Pulled From Coin Roll Hunting

    25 Jun 2015 | 10:28 pm
    I just finished going through forty dollars worth of pennies. I haven't actually had time to go through any full boxes of pennies from the bank because I have been so stretched for free time lately. I've just been grabbing rolls here and there and I've come up with these sixteen. I just haven't had time to keep up with the blog posts, that's why there isn't as many posts this month as I usually try to have. There's also the fact that I'm not getting much search engine traffic to this blog so I'm not as enthusiastic about updating it as much. With that being said my Alexa rank still seems to…
  • A 1948D Silver Dime I Pulled While Coin Roll Hunting

    23 Jun 2015 | 11:21 pm
    I've been going through tons of dimes lately. It's been really hard for me to find time to keep up with my coin roll hunting hobby but I've manages to go through over $500 in dimes over the past two weeks. Unfortunately out of all this change I have only found one silver dime and that was this 1948D Roosevelt silver dime. I'm starting to think that doing this on a large scale is not really worth the effort but I guess I won't really know until I start selling off my non silver finds. I've been keeping all my dimes dated from 1965 to 1969 as the eBay prices for these circulated coins seem to…

It's still nice to find these while I'm on the clock and getting paid though. I also found two pre-war nickles in the register on the same day but nothing with silver in it. I plan on adding these two my 40s and 50s nickle horde that I will end up selling on eBay. Below is a scanned image of the two wheat pennies I found. I think I need to clean the top of my scanner though. Placing all these dirty coins on it is staring to leave a lot of dust…

Not any really big finds other than the 1920 coin without a mint mark. I'm hoping to be able to grab a full box from the bank on my way into work today and go through it tomorrow to see what I can find. My full collection of wheat pennies is really starting to grow and I may have to sell some of them off very soon. Below is a scanned image of the latest finds.
  • Two Wheat Pennies I Found In The Cash Register At Work

    They have started putting me on the front register at work. I like this position as it's not as hectic as working in the drive-thru plus I get to deal with customers which is something I actually prefer. The only problem I have is that I have some hearing issues. I have some trouble hearing some people when they give their orders but I think I will still be able to work this position at work sometimes and it's a great way for me to pick up a few wheat pennies from time to time.
