    Finally got an old time silver commemorative

    First time ever last week..I found an old time silver commemorative. It was a 1923-S Monroe Doctrine commemorative in EF/AU condition. I did find a 1892 Columbian Expo coin 8 years ago but I didn't count it since the mintages are high on those. I really like these old time commemorative since they have such low mintages. Let's see what other old time commemoratives people here have found.

    I've found quite a few clad but the old silvers are quite rare.

    Out of the many years and hundreds of thousands of dollars of halves I have searched, I have found only one old time silver commemerative. A more common (of the old commemeratives) George Washington Carver. I have found a couple of the newer silver George Washington commemerative halves.

    Now that's a very nice suprise. Those coins command a pretty nice resale price, over melt, on 'that site that won't be named.' I'm totally enamored with the comm. coins. Good luck on future boxes. : )

    Congrats on a nice find. I am still waiting for one of those low mintage commemoratives. Like you I have found the Columbians. I have also found the Booker T Washington and Washington/Carver.

    Nice SF, the Monroe is a tough one to get. Big congrats. Only old commens I have found are the Stone Mountain ones.

    Post some pics of it.
    There is no silver left around here...

    SF,
    That's a great find. I've never seen anyone one on this forum find a Monroe Doctrine. I think you are the first. I've gotten about five Washington / Carvers and one Stone Mountain. Also a few Geaorge Washington Commems. Once again....Great find
