Anyone around here actively collecting these? Seems like the premiums have gone up a little since I was active in this series. It was always fun for me finding these.
Anyway, I just found a nice 1956 bugs, ms64 unattributed in an NGC holder, with Toning. If you need one, I’ll send you the bay link.
The coin is neutral to dark toning, wrong plastic for me taste, and I already have two for my all varieties dansco

    I am, the problem is so many are hard to see with a loupe so eBay cherry-picking is a nightmare. The valuable ones too are even less noticeable. I’m going to keep trying though!

    I have a few. You have a better picture of this coin?

    I got down to a lot of other diagnostics when hunting the more minor appearing varieties on ebay. Often the eagles left wing and marks in letters.

    I love them. I have a couple ‘55s. Not actively hunting and it would have to be pretty noticeable for me to catch one in the wild.

    That was not one I chased... I have a set of Franklins, and spares. Frankly (see what I did?), I have not even checked for any Bugs Bunny coins in what I have. Obviously, I likely do not have any that are significant, or I would have noticed. Cheers, RickO

    I recently doubled check my circulated sets again. I pulled out a couple (a few years ago) I didn't even realize I had and put them in empty holes (then labeled them) in the back of my Whitman.

    I’m not. I have several raw of various dates and an NGC top pop 1955.
    They’re cool but common enough to not get excited about.

    It's been so long since I perused my Frankies I'm quite not sure that I have one in my collection. One of these days I might just have to take a look. Thanks for a reminder, I would indeed like to add one if absent from my set.

    Actively hunting?... No. Happy to pick one up if it's a cherrypick?... Yes.

    Oh yes, when I was looking for them years ago. I just happened to see this one when buying a Liberty nickel from the dealer. I’m not looking for these anymore.

    You guys might find this useful if you haven't already seen it.

    I did the same thing. I didn't check....until I checked. Not that it's that critical but it's always fun to cherrypick your own collection.

    Don't readily search for them but If I find one for the right price I'll pick one up and add it to a blank Dansco.

    You want one? PM me. I think I have a few extras.

    But then won't you have to put your return address on the mailing envelope? :o

    I'll have to take a look which dates I have compared to what I need to add.

    You're being a little picky for a free one aren't you?

    Somehow this is a variety that I have zero interest in.

    Just picked this one. From a Pawn Shop.
    The more common date with a very dramatic example.



    I paid $20, probably worth about $60 - $70

    About 35 years ago, I bought a roll of UNC 1955 Franklins. I gave 4X face value. Many years later I opened the roll to see if any were worth grading. It was a complete roll of Bugs Bunny. I pulled what I thought to be the best coin and it came back as a 64. I still have the roll. They would probably grade 62 to 63. Not worth the fees to have them graded in my opinion.
