I hope by this time of year, each of you have found all of the 2014 models in circulation. I happened to have received them all at once in a single handful of change. That has never happened to me this early in the year. That handful of coins consisted of two quarters, one of which was a 2014 P Shenandoah Quarter. It also included a 2014 P nickel and a 2014 P dime. There were three cents, two of which were 2014 P’s. I still have other new quarters and “D” mint issues to find.
Cents: Found some nice “early” Memorial cents this time. Found lots and lots of2014 P cents, they must be minting them by the millions.
Nickels: A few 2014 P nickels, not much of interest this time.
Dimes: Plenty of 2014 P dimes. People must be storing their change again.
Quarters: Received 2014 P Shenandoah Quarters on several occasions, waiting on other new ones. Finally received a 2013 P Fort McHenry Quarter just in time for the Fourth of July.
Currency: At the last MCCA meeting received another “Where’s George” note in change. This is where you can track your dollar on-line by the serial number. The only post on this dollar came from Marietta, Ga about a month ago. If you come across one of these go to “Where’s George.com” to track it. None of my entries have received additional post.
Last weekend I caught an interesting story on the morning news about an artist named Mark Wagner. This guy cuts up currency and puts it back together as works of art. I suggest looking him up on-line. Amazing … Well this street level collector can’t afford to be slicing up his money, he is just trying to put enough together to pay his bills.
