Hi everybody! I'm sorry that I was late on my article. I had some wrong facts and I had to fix them. That took a while, but I finally got it all figured out.

The best part about your articles is that they are a true learning experience and so very interesting; the worst part is it's finally spring in my part of the world and that means every sunshiny minute is spent outside with my hands in the soil.

By the end of the day I'm too tired to go through my jars and boxes of coins.

But I'm reading every word you write and when my time outside slows down a little, I'll have a whole new project: searching and comparing coins, based on what you've written. You and Jon are creating new interests for us. That's a good thing! Thank you.

Love reading this article. Instead of throwing my coins in the free coin counting machine, I will look them over first.

I remember the Winged Liberty Head dime was not uncommon in circulation during my childhood. DH is an avid coin collector. He's got a lot of coins! Not long ago, he gave me a silver dollar, because he knows I like the gold and silver coins the best.

The Japanese one yen coin is made from aluminium, a handful would blow away in the wind, the five yen coin has a hole in the center and make great washers.

I have one of the yen coins. It is very light which means it is probable aluminum.

How odd that this thread should receive a new post.

Just this morning, the last dream I had was about a dime.

I dreamt that I found a dime that was dated 1857 or 1867 (can't remember now) and I was trying to convince someone what a great movie we could make called...."The Making of a Dime." Although now that I'm awake, I think the title I should have dreamt is "The Life of a Dime."

I thought we could start by showing some man who worked in the Mint long, long ago, doing his job of making coins. We would follow the travels of one specific dime, through all the pockets it inhabited, through all the States it found itself in, through the years of changes and people it belonged to. Lots of little sub-stories in this movie. I thought about that dream for a long time after I woke up. I still think it's a good idea. Smiling

But isn't it a coincidence that you brought this thread back to life today?? Blinking

Nancy, I was thinking about this cubit yesterday also. I was cleaning and found a sack o' coins that had silver dollars, half dollars, dimes, nickels and wheaties.

I also had a couple coins from the Friendship Festival of 1987 here in Buffalo-Fort Erie. Remember that?

Yes, I remember. Didn't go, though. Wow, what a great find, Julie! Kind of made cleaning worthwhile! Are the coins yours?
