Condiments on Coins

Post them if you have them! B)

Mustard may be stereotypical, but to be fair, just because mustard is on a coin dealer's clothing does not mean it will be on their coins!

Here's a coin that I found in an online inventory, and as you can see, it does not have any mustard; rather, it appears to be either ketchup or barbecue sauce:

    I suspect that condiments on coins are not enough to make coins tasty to eat. :)

    Or perhaps jelly?

    I wonder if this thread will lead to an abundance of “GTC” (Guess The Condiment), as opposed to “GTG” threads?😉

    "GTG" can still be used for Guess the Gravy... ;)

    Are you sure that's not blood? Did you do the taste test?

    Would you like a PBJ on silver or some other Fluff?

    I vaguely remember that some folks have used Tobasco sauce to etch dateless buffalo nickels.
    Perhaps I’m mistaken on this?
    Also, I might imagine that the vinegar and acidic qualities of ketchup could theoretically work in a pinch for a light dip in the absence of some more potent stuff. ;-)
