Back to basics: Low grade coins in albums
I recently was given a few Visa gift cards for taking a role in Safety leadership at new work project. Today I went to the local coin shop and spent them all on a group of Liberty nickels from 1887-1905.
I also picked up some small lots of lower grade Buffalo nickels and Liberty nickels in the last few weeks and have been having more fun than I expected simply filling holes in Dansco albums and shuffling 2x2 flips around in my coin boxes.
Totally forgotten was the joy of basic album work, until this May. There is a certain happiness that came from getting lots of half decent coins for less than the cost of a single average PCGS graded coin.
I would normally bombard this post with photos but I dropped my phone and broke the camera
In lieu of pics, I will share additional information. I am working on a new pharmaceutical plant for Takeda and their Huntington’s disease medicine. They encourage us to submit Safety Observation Reports and expect at least 22 per week from the various contractors working there. I take most aspects of workplace safety very seriously so I have been submitting several per week and they are mostly positive reports. I never name people or companies for violations but do describe how dangers can be prevented. Yesterday I got yet another gift card for my contributions and decided to blow them all on old worn down coins. Woooo.
Here is one blurry shot of the V nicks in a blank Jefferson page. Mostly G-VF with a few AG and poor.
Thank you to Will at CRB and Takeda!
