In my search for various things today, I lucked out with a local rare coin dealer.
After I was shocked and stunned at the prices on his rare, un-circulated Mercury Dime collection, I sheepishly asked if he had some lesser quality Mercury dimes, for something in the 4 to 5 dollar range. He pulled out what must be his “junk” drawer of various coins that I think he must just accept when buying lots and there were a good two dozen late 30s and 40s Merc dimes for $2 each. Score.
So, after snagging as many of the leap year dimes as I could I made note to be back for more of his junk drawer.
Surely he’s got some Indian head pennies and $2 bills he needs to purge… right?
