I continue to learn more about this coin. This one has one staple with patina on it and Only one stable means it is legit…. Not that it matters, rhis coin is basically worth 50 cents but I got it from the family who got it from chick fil A back in the 1970s! In 1976 I was 6 years old…how old were you and what were you doing for the bicentennial…!!???
Post your coins from 1976!!!

    In just 3 more years and our country will have its 250th birthday. Anyone heard if the Congress already has proposals for a special commemorative coin for our nation's Semiquincentennial?

    How old was I in 1976?
    Well... my dad was born that year :|

    Here is a 1776 eight reales love token, likely engraved at the centennial exposition!

    @Che_Grapes .... I was 34... living in Europe, about to return to the U.S.. I have a lot of quarters and several halves from the bi-centennial. No Chick-fil-a's.... Never been to one of those. Cheers, RickO

    Here is a 1776 British guinea. This piece came from Lenard Finn's collection. He was a collector I knew from my days in the Boston area. Lenny was a great collector and had many unusual items. He had an example of the first paper money that was circulated in what would be the United States, from the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the 1690s. I believe that piece is now in the Smithsonian.

    "Staple with patina" Ha! I got a chuckle outta that! I was going to community college and got the $2 bills postmarked the first day of issue and gave 'em to my brothers and sisters. I think my younger sister still has hers. I just sent this to a buyer as I've been downsizing just a tad lately.

    I went to a parade in Morristown, New Jersey on July 4, 1976. Yea, I'm an old guy. I was working for the Allied Chemical Company which was headquartered in Morristown.

    I was 28 and I ran a John Deere dealership in Kingsport, Tn and watched a parade also from the front.
