Re: Oh coinstar machine.

A few years ago my son who has autism a lot of roll searching. And so we dumped a lot of coins and he is found all kinds of interesting things. Everything from a 10th of an ounce of gold. A US two cent coin. An American flying eagle cent. All kinds of bullets. I sort of miss those days. See http://w...

I might find a more accurate scale then track down what coins around the world, struck at the mint, could match. Here is a website that list good amount of the ...

You could have...

Re: 1996 Penny/Dime mutant coin. Help please?

I have done and continue to do a fair bit of google searching. I have found what you are speaking of (plating of coins for jewelry etc) but what I can tell is that a plating would lead it to being magnetic. It is not magnetic. Not even weakly... The weight is half way between a dime and a penny. Se...
