  • Phil N. Molé: "Found a 1941-S Mercury dime in a dime roll."
  • Richie Stinchcomb: "1903-O Morgan $1 PCGS MS64 with beautiful blue toning. 1909VDB Lincoln Cent NGC MS64RD. Assorted silver bullion and some modern toned pieces. The most interesting piece that I purchased was a raw 1868 Indian Head Cent. It came from an album and has beautiful original album toning. It is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! This coin could possibly grade MS66 or higher with PCGS. The finest 1868 Indian Head Cent ever graded by PCGS is MS66RD. This coin may get RB, but it may grade 66 or higher. Hopefully, this proves to be a unique and beneficial find."
