    First coins purchased in 1972 from Woolworth’s from those revolving cases (remember those?) that you could stop and reverse with the buttons on top.

    Then I made friends with the coin guys in Gimbels and Macy’s...while mom and dad were shopping.

    Memories...I laugh now thinking that they could safely let a little kid go shopping alone in a department store back then.

    I don't own an American coin from 1967, so a couple of Canadian coins will have to do. The quarter is in an ICCS flip which makes photography difficult.

    Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthday! We are in the same boat, turning 50 this year. This is not my coin, but I would like to obtain one of this "vintage";

    Love those 1967 Canadian commemorative coins! Especially when they look like this! (Nope, not mine anymore. But I did well on it.)

    Happy Birthday @RichR!

    Kind regards,

    All I have from '67 is a cent and I'm afraid that you wouldn't be able to see it anyway. ;)

  • HydrantHydrant Posts: 7,773 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Can't think much of anything from 1967 that would cheer anybody up. Except, I do recall a certain young lady. She was, ah, um....Oh well...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    50 is a cool age. Nice round number. Easy to remember. :)

    I'm 74 and still pretty cheerful. However, it would be nice to be as young as 50 again.

    Are you cheered up yet?

    Cheer up! I graduated from high school in 1967 so it could be worse ...

    Here is a 1967 Canadian commemorative $20 gold piece. A lot of U.S. collectors wanted one of these pieces in 1967, but it was illegal to bring them into The United States. Now that they are legal, some people think of it as a lump of gold.

    1967 Canada silver medal (silver dollar sized) - I believe that a lot of these went to the Pot back in 1979-80:

    Happy Birthday... don't have really any 1967 U.S. coins imaged, so this will have to do...

    Thanks for all your best birthday wishes.

    Some nice '67 coins on display there...but jeez, 1967 was really a mundane year (along with '65 and '66) for US coins, wasn't it?

    I tried to explain the concept of Special Mint Sets to my wife (lack of Mint production capacity in addition to avoiding hording silver coins)...and she said, "That sounds lame...and makes no sense. Why does the Mint always have its head up its as*?"

    Sadly, I could only agree with that assessment...it made no sense.

    A big part of the trouble was that the mint director blamed coin collectors for the problem. The real problem was a fundamental shift in the silver price that too many people anticipated accelerated by the introduction of the Kennedy Half Dollar.

  • RichRRichR Posts: 3,841 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Funny random story...I actually found myself in the same department store building today where I purchased my first coin-related item at the age of 5.

    It was a Gimbels back then and today it’s Macy’s (in Westchester County, NY). Haven’t stepped foot in there in 25+ years and suddenly my wife asked me to pull in to pay a credit card bill.

    The first item I bought way back in the day was a paperweight in the form of a 1964 proof set locked inside a clear lucite cube. My dad liked it so much that he ended up using it on his desk.

    I couldn't find anything from 1967 or 1767. This will have to do.

    Slightly OT - medical - at fifty years old...

    Be sure to get the fifty year-old physical examination, the nuclear stress test for the heart, the colonoscopy, a sonogram check of the carotid arteries, the pneumonia shot, maybe a few other tests, if you have not already done so.

    Fifty years-old is the age when the hidden little bombs inside a person need to be detected, because that's when they start to go off... in my case it was coronary artery disease about the heart - a couple of well placed stents probably kept me from a major heart attack that was looming.

    FWIW, the nuclear heart stress test is much less intensive than 10 years ago (I started my fifty year-old tests at 48 because I was very leery of my overall physical condition). Today's heart imaging is amazingly good.

    Perhaps '50 is the new 35' in your head/mind/attitude, but your heart/arteries and your gut may not know that! Get all those tests if you can get your health insurance to go along! They made a lot of difference for me or I might have made a sorry corpse at fifty-two or thereabouts!

    You can't take your coins with you!

    Colonoscopy YES

    Pneumonia vaccine no

    Carotid ultrasound no

    Stress (cardiac) test no

    Yearly physical exam YES

    Flu shot YES

    Happy Birthday!
