    Rare Coin Trifecta...over 5 years! Let's see your scarce or rare finds!

    Not many people are lucky enough to dig an actual rare coin. Even less have dug more than 1. Two weeks back I was lucky enough to dig my THIRD rare coin (R-5 or better), and I was wondering how many, like myself have been fortunate enough to have dug a scarce coin, R-3 or better on the Sheldon Rarity Scale.

    If you're part of the Club, post your photos!


    Below are my prized rare finds, showing most recent first:

    1788 Ryder 5 Vermont Copper (R-5) that I dug last week,

    1795 Flowing Hair Half Dime that I dug a few years back (R-5)

    1789 Half Reale IV over III, NG Mint (R-6 or better?)

    I've actually dug a lot of rare stuff, many of the items having good value, but certainly nothing compared to what a good American coin would be worth. For coins I have two out of the Charlton Colonial token book that have about 12-14 known. And for buttons, at the time I dug them they were incredibly rare. The larger American collectors had neither, and for one it was the same image in all the books, and maybe there was a few more that existed. The other I believe I was the only private person to have one, at least to own one and know what it was. Most of those finds go back quite a few years and the buttons have lost some rarity, but the coins have remained about the same. The coins have actually increased in value, but the buttons dropped off substantially. I think many of us have dug very rare finds, but again it all depends what it is. It's very difficult to find the right item in great condition, but when you do, cha-ching!

    Forgot to mention; thank you Iron Patch for the ID on both of the Ct. Copper and Oak Tree. Oh yeah, and something about a button...

    You did thank me, about 400 times. But I was lucky to get that many, it could have easily worked out different.

    Here's mine. Quarter cut by the Planter's Bank in New Orleans around 1814 and counterstamped as emergency coinage for the state of Louisiana. The early "PB in rectangle" stamp is always stamped over by a later "PB in chain links" counterstamp...that is on every example known except the one I dug. This is also the only known example with both the "Nouvelle Orleans" and the PB stamp on the same side. A barely overstruck PB in rectangle sold for over $17,000.00 at auction last summer. Mine was cut from an 1810 8Reales.
