    As part of our continued conversation with our readers, I like to ask our Coin World Facebook fans and Twitter followers to share about the numismatic purchases they've made recently. 

    Below are the weekend purchases our fans and followers told us about on Facebook and Twitter:

    • Chad Hartzell: "Roll of mercs"
    • Andy Dempster: "70 silver roosevelt dimes at spot price"
    • Kevin Smith: "1908 D Barber half." (Example pictured at left.)
    • Steven Genovese: "1986 American Gold Eagle in MS 69. Beautiful since it's first series of this coin."
    • David Rickley: "1895-O Barbara dime" (Let's assume David meant an 1895-O Barber dime.)
    • Joshua H. (@eparses): "I got some Finnish, British, Chinese, Ethiopian, Hong Knog and Bahamian coinage."
    • Bear Johnson: "1850 seated lib dime and an 1836 large cent for $10.00... I love yard sales"
