What Have You Gotten Lately?

Post by Kitty » Sun May 28, 2017 4:16 pm

I found an 1899 liberty head nickel in the register today! It's very worn, but so cool!

Wow! That's a find. It's a real rarity to find something like that circulating. Think of all the hands that has been in. You would think someone would have noticed the date or unusual design and pulled it out. I've found old wheat pennies several times, and awhile back ran across a 1905 Indian head penny—but I've never seen anything quite that old in circulation.

The only old thing I've gotten recently is a 1956 Henry comic book. Did I post about that?—don't think so. But right now I've got an ebay bid going on another Sears catalog. It's an original 1943. If I get that one, I'll have either reproductions or originals from every decade 1890's through 1990's—except for the 30's. And there is a 1934 for sale—tempting, but it's a little higher, and I've overspent my entertainment budget lately.

I saw an original one in an antique shop last week. I don't remember the year, unfortunately.

Last week I got some political junk mail. I was about to toss it into the paper recycle, when I noticed the stamps on it. :-)

Wow!!!! Cool! Wonder if he would have supported whatever cause was in the envelope. :lol:

Oh these old things, I've had them for years. No seriously, but if you right click on them individually you can save them yourself, do you have photobucket?
