Hi Everyone,
Welcome again to our auctions. Times being what they are, it's time to part with my coin collection. I have been collecting since the early 1970's, (really the late 60's). I always bought type coins, primarily for eye appeal. I had a local coin dealer in the town I grew up in, and he and I would negotiate for days about any purchase I made. I know where every single coin came from, as each tells its own unique story. Some were also given to me as gifts, and some were even given to me by a lady on my paper route when I was little. That's a whole separate story, and I'll tell you about it when I list those coins.
These rolls belonged to my parents. They were actually unrolled pennies which were kept in an old Planters' Peanut tin. My dad remembered them as far back as the early 20's. He indicated to me that his parents started hoarding them when they got married in 1912. My mother rolled them, prior to her passing in 2005.
There are only about 50 rolls. I opened two rolls, and here is what I found;
Roll #1 - 13 Indians, (1879, 1880, 1886, 1895, 1898, 1899, the rest 1900+), 9-teens, 13-20's, 11-30's, 4-40's.
Roll #2 - 9 Indians, (2-1887, 1882, 1885, 1876, 1893, the rest 1900+), 16-teens, 14-20's, 5-30's, 6-40's.
