Got my first Sally Ride quarter in change today. It's a 1922 D OOPS! We usually don't see many new Denver mint coins here for a few years. First woman in space. 2 cool. What is coming out of the 2? Die scratch or what?

    a 1922, nice silver find! I'd be through the moon with such a nice old coin! Slap that thing on eBay ask an astronomical price. If the stars align, you'll get a bidder with stellar feedback.

    Whew 101 years is a really long time for the Denver coinage to circulate your way! ;)

    Maybe @jesbroken is throwin' back some of grandpa's old cough syrup and distorting his vision a touch?

    At 75 only being one number off is a win. 19 to 20, huh hardly nothin'.

    1st AMERICAN woman.

    3rd woman.

    Valentina Tereshkova got there 20 years earlier.

    Are you suggesting that Valentina didn't fly in space?

    Looks like a die scratch on the 2... picture is not very good though. Cheers, RickO

    I assume he considers Svetlana Savitskaya to be the first.

  • jesbrokenjesbroken Posts: 9,244 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Both wrong. Actually, only vaguely familiar with either name and not their history at all. Was just kidding about Russia, I thought a wink eye would satisfy, guess not.
    @ricko I guess we will never know, my wife/boss took my change off my desk today for asnack and the machine at her work ate it.
    Oh well, unimportant anyway.

    "Svetlana" is Russian for "Sally".
