A couple of Tidy House buys - just had to share

I found both of these at my local coin shop. I have seen the Morgans before but not the Kennedy. Both halves are from Denver. It's not a big deal as I only paid melt for it!

The 1880-s Morgan is really quite nice, I got to pick this one from a group of 4. It's probably a 63 with cool obverse reflective surfaces and nice reverse toning. Don't worry, I will not send it in.

Thanks for looking.

    I did not get any Tidy House coins... Was a struggling young fatherin that time period, working as a submarine pipe fitter in the PNH Shipyard...Looks like they were exposed to some of the sponsors products. Maybe not ;) Cheers, RickO

    That looks like a nice original Tidy House dollar! I like the Tidy House dollars, try to pick them up when I find them and price is ok. Trouble is.... many replacement coins in those holders, just like the old mint sets up to 1958.

    My Tidy House collection now is mostly holders and advertising. You can still occasionally pick up envelopes and sets for a little over melt.

    Nice! Your Morgan toned nicely.

    Ha I used to call these "Tidy Bowl" coins. I think it was from a coin dealer I had a summer job at once who would use the wrong term. I don't even think it's the same company 😉
