    All are cool finds for sure,But! I do not believe that your Confederate Half Dollar is Real. There were only 4(according to official records) Confederate .50 cent pieces struck. And these used the United States 1861 Seated Liberty obverse. The reverse looks nothing at all like the one you have.
    Of the four struck one was given to Secretary of the Confederacy Memminger, who passed it on to President Jefferson Davis for his approval.
    Another was given to Professor J.L.Riddell of the university of Louisanna. E.Ames of New Orleans received a third specimen. The fourth was kept by chief coiner
    B.F. Taylor. Lack of Bullion kept the Confederacy from coining more pieces.


    If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."

    That 50 cent piece looked way off. Another onliner write:
    1862 Dated coins"
    "
    The 1862 Confederate cents, and all other Confederate coins with that date, are modern souvenirs made by the privately owned Georgia Mint for sale to tourist stops. The Georgia Mint made these with the wrong date on purpose to avoid being accused of counterfeiting."

    Confederate coinage (one cent and 50 cent pieces) was minted with only one year: 1961.

    You should post this in "Today's Finds".
    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.

    Unfortunately, you have a diamond under the date of the 50 paisa. It is worth about $0.75 numismatically. Without the diamond it would be $15.

    1861, not 1961.

    The Georgia Mint, Inc. was started in 1986 to celebrate our country's history, specifically the Civil War by the development of reproduction coins and booklets of that era.
