This is another common date but something interesting about this coin - is this double die?
I have heard of the "hot lips", those Morgan dollars that were struck at the New Orleans Mint in 1888 with a doubled die obverse that produced significant doubling of Miss Liberty’s lips, nose and chin and the other is the 1901 Double Die Reverse but for this 1881s Morgan, the date on "1881" looks like a double die
The Buffalo nickel is one of those numismatic coins that I admire. I like the artistic design and this is one of favorite coins among collectors in the US
It is estimated that over 1.2 billion Buffalo Nickels were minted from 1913 to 1938 at Philadelphia (no mint mark), San Francisco (S), and Denver (D). Most Indian Head nickels were removed from circulation in the 1950s and 1960s in various degrees of wear. By the end of 1937, planning for the new design to replace the Buffalo was way. It was to be replaced by the Jefferson Nickel which continues in production to this day.
On June 15, 1933, the United States Congress passed an act to authorize the minting of the Texas Centennial silver half dollar coin to celebrate the upcoming one hundredth anniversary in 1936 of the independence of Texas.
Jim Rogers buying silver
Jim Rogers, the legendary contrarian investor, author and chairman of Rogers Holdings, is still betting on $2,000 gold in 10 years. He is bullish on silver and says that Silver is 60% or 70% below its all-time high. Gold is making all-time highs. He is suggesting that people should perhaps look at silver, platinum, palladium. Palladium is also 50%-60% below its all-time high. Platinum is maybe 30% below its all-time high.
