    Interesting "skunk" box

    Opened two half boxes today, and I knew one was going to be interesting from the enders. Someone dumped a clad collection, or at least the clad was all that made it into the wrapping machine. Many, many, many great rimmed coins that would grade BU and AU.... including EIGHT '87s (five denver, three philly)

    I'll be breaking out my book later to see what I can upgrade. It's going to be a shame to throw the leftovers back into the wild, to get grinded more by machines, but nobody really wants them.

    Besides the 8 1987's.. No, not really. Maybe a dozen tops between 2005 and 2010.

    Are NIFCs worth keeping I have a tone of them and am thinking of cashing them in. Should I?

    I just got a box very similar to yours. Two 87's, about 40 very, very, very nice common date clads, and about 40 NIFC. Its "sister box" had another 87 and about 140 untouched 1998 D's.

    They have only 50 cents of value now. They may be worth more in the future.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.
