    Nothing wrong with a straight graded P01. 👍🏻

    I’ve taken to throwing coins with similar tarry looking junk on them into the bottom of my washing machine when I get home. Especially ones I get from the corner convience store that’s a block from where I’m living. I always check my change when I go there and have recently found a lot of gemmy looking new uncirculated coins, which I save for my albums, but also a bunch of older coins with similar splotches of tarry gooey stuff. Me and my wife half-jokingly call them black tar fentanyl coins because of those internet rumors that have been going around recently. But I have taken to putting them in the washing machine when they have that gunk on them. In all seriously, I think it has something to do with people emptying out large coin jars into coin stars which is putting a lot of funky coins back into circulation.

    While circulation hurts, parking lots and roads kill coins, but they seem to sprout. I just found these while taking the dog on a walk.

    With one exception........P0-1's in my opinion. I believe (in many cases) a straight graded P0-1 adds value to the coin. However, the coin's date must be ID'ed.

    Well, this, for me at least, is an exception to that rule. ANACS only certified a few No Date examples in the small slabs, and of those, how many are toned?

    You're exactly right! I would have bought that coin in a second just for that small soap bar slab!! 👍

    I'm afraid to ask. You call them soap boxes?? Hmmm, okay. I thought they were soap bars. People use both terms?

    I use both sometimes interchangeably. Why? I’m difficult.

    I would think FR2, too much detail for poor IMO.

    I was thinking P0-1. That's why I was asking but you're probably right.

    And now it’s time for Guess The Mintmark! Is it a W? Probably, though we’ll never know.

    P.S. @OAKSTAR , last time I posted on this thread, I had no idea that you were actually in jail. I really thought that you changed your profile picture to add bars on purpose! I am sorry for the miscommunication. I imagine that you were rather displeased with me getting a laugh out of that when you saw it.
