America's Favorite Coins
<div class="text-justify">More coins! Further clean-of our deceased parents' home revealed more coins. There does not seem to be one set place for them to be stored, although that would <b>not</b> have been true when my father still had his eyesight, as he was a very organized individual. So, we're finding little things here-and-there.<p>
  </p>

My brother found a really cool set of "America's Favorite Coins" nicely mounted in a plastic display case. The set includes a Kennedy Half-Dollar, a Bicentennial quarter, a Winged Liberty Head Dime, a Buffalo Nickel, and an Indian Head Cent.<p>
  </p>

<center>![FavoriteCoins1.png](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/thekittygirl/KRk6E22z-FavoriteCoins-1.png)</center><p></p>

My brother has been graciously suggesting that I keep most of the loose coins we've found to add to my collection, so when he surprised me by saying that he wouldn't mind having this set if I didn't especially want it, I had to let him take it. So, this set will be going home with him. 😊<p>
  </p>

Details of the coins are as follows, copied from the display card:<p>
  </p>

πŸ”Έ 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollar
1965–1970. Designed by Gilroy Roberts and Frank Fasparro, this 40% silver coin pays tribute to John F. Kennedy with his inaugural medal portrait.

πŸ”Έ Bicentennial Quarter
1976 only. Designed by John Flanagan and Jack L Ahr, this coin features a Colonial drummer on the reverse.

πŸ”Έ Mercury Dime
1916–1945. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman, this coin shows Liberty wearing a cap representing freedom of thought, often mistaken for the Roman god, Mercury.

πŸ”Έ Buffalo Nickel
1913–1938. Designed by James Earle Fraser. The difficult-to-find 3-legged 1937 Denver Mint specimen is a collector's find.1909

πŸ”Έ Indian Head Cent
1859–1909. Designed by James B. Longacre and modeled after his daughter, Sarah, wearing an Indian headdress.

<center><img src="https://steemitimages.com/DQmYQQsL3qqbyQYsn1rxJ8WuN4e9NBHCt1HrtsaYERFJmzn/__pearls.png"></center>

There were also two loose Winged Liberty Head dimes, called "Mercury Dimes" by some folk, as Lady Liberty with the winged Phyrgian cap resembles Mercury, the winged messenger of the gods in Roman lore.

<center>![TwoDimes1.png](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/thekittygirl/IafQSlsq-TwoDimes-1.png)</center><p>
  </p>

The 1943 dime is in respectable condition (at least on the obverse), but the 1917 specimen is heavily worn on both sides from being in circulation for so long. The mass of a newly minted Mercury dime is 2.500 g <sup>[<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury_dime">source</a>]</sup> and these two show their wear at 2.43 g and 2.22 g, respectively, on my scale.<p>

@ninahaskin · (edited)
Very interesting post and the 1943 and 1917 dimes are a great addition to your collection! @thekittygirl Vintage coin collecting definitely was a thing when my brother and I were growing up. I remember the feeling of excitement we got whenever a relative or family friend would gift us with a silver dollar or one of the coin sets as pictured in your top image. My mom saved my brother's collection after he died suddenly 15 years ago and one day I will cherish them as much as he did. In the meantime, my son tediously collected all of the United State's quarters as they were released about ten years ago and keeps them in a display case.
This might not be turned on but worth trying! @tipu curate

Very nice...  I'm sure your Brother is very Pleased...  

How would you like seeing "Clad" Mercury Dimes and Buffalo Nickels Circulating again...???  

Do you think all the current Dimes and Nickels would Vanish...???

Always neat to see the different collections that people have.  I don't pay for many things in cash anymore, but I still find myself looking out for wheat pennies whenever I get change since my dad has always collected those.  Definitely fun to trace the history of a country through its currency. :)
