6. Scarce Silver Nickel
During the Silver Rush of the 1980's, when Silver hit an all time high of $50.00 an ounce, millions upon millions of the Silver Wartime Nickels were dumped into the melting pot and refined for their silver content, thus adding to their present day scarcity. Wartime nickels were made from a silver alloy from 1942 to 1945 during World War II because Nickel was a strategic metal needed for the war effort. The 1943 "D" with its low mintage of just over 15 million is the lowest mintage of any of the Wartime Silver Nickels and is by far the most difficult date to obtain.
10. Short Trip
You like the idea of being a Jet Setter but you don't want to be away from home for a long period of time? Then, plan on ordering our "Short Trip" assortment. This assortment has 50 Mixed Coins that were also pulled out of that old barrel where we keep our bulk supply of unsorted foreign coins. There is a good mixture of dates and countries from around the world in this assortment.
19. In Short Supply
In 1955 the total combined mintage from all three mints for the Roosevelt dime was a mere 45,297.381 coins. That's a very small quantity compared to the years just prior and after 1955. I estimate that approximately 75% of the entire issue of 1955 dimes went into circulation. That doesn't leave many coins left in Uncirculated condition let alone in a GEM B.U. grade. We are offering you the complete set of these low mintage 1955 Roosevelt dimes, Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco in GEM B.U. condition at a bargain price. Order one or more sets today!
26. Obsolete Currency
During the period of 1840 to 1870 various southern states and many private banks in the United States were allowed to print and issue their own currency. Many of which failed and the currency that they issued became absolutely worthless. This worthless currency became commonly known as "Broken Bank Notes." Although they are no longer redeemable at their original face value, many of them are worth far more than that original face value to collector's. These notes are historic remnants of America's history and art, being beautifully engraved, with interesting vignettes and fine artwork from the 19th century.
27. By The Pound
There are 16 ounces to every pound, but if you're talking about a pound of "Lincoln Wheat Cents" there are at least 150 coins to that pound. If they happen to be the older dates that are worn down a little more, it takes even more coins to make a pound.
37. Rolled Steel
This is an ideal assortment for everyone who wants the famous "1943 Wartime Steel Cents" in quantity. Each roll has a good mixture of coins from all three Mints, Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. All coins will be in good or better condition.
41. Rusty Crusty Junkers
We call them as we see them. We gave this assortment of Indian Head Cents the name "Rusty Crusty Junkers" because that's exactly what they are, these Indian Head Cents are rusty, discolored, bent, scratched or damaged in some way.
54. Heavy Weight Champ
The "Heavy Weight Champ." contains no less than 5 full pounds (750 coins) of numismatically UN-searched Lincoln Wheat Cents that were scooped out from the bulk barrel.
77. Noltgeld Notes
The very first issue of German and Austrian emergency money, called "Notgeld" in German (Note meaning need or necessity and word Geld meaning money), appeared on July 31, 1914. There were several reasons for issuing this emergency money: shortages of silver coins due to rising silver prices, copper and nickel coins were melted down and the metal reused for the war effort and, last but not least was widespread coin hoarding in general. This resulted in a severe shortage of coins in circulation which lead to the issuing of these Notgeld, which were than used as money. They were issued by various cities, towns, clubs and private organizations. We are offering these interesting, attractive and very colorful historic notes, in groups of ten different, for the collector who desires something really different to add to his or her collection.
100. King Of The Jefferson Nickels
Without a doubt the 1950 D Jefferson Nickel is considered the King of the series. This is the lowest mintage regular issue date in the series with just slightly over two and a half million minted. That's not very many to go around when you consider the number of coin collectors there are. We currently have a few Choice B.U. rolls in stock which we are breaking up into single coins at a very special price. Take advantage of the savings on this rare date and put some away.
112. Silver Certificates
It seems like it was only yesterday, but, as a matter of fact it has been 38 years since the redemption deadline date of United States Silver Certificates. Silver Certificates were at one time redeemable for silver - payable to the bearer on demand - and that promise was stated right on the face of each and every note. In 1968 our Government went off the silver standard and called them in. According to law they had to make good on the promise stated on the notes and redeem them for silver. The ones that were not turned in still retain their face value, but are no longer redeemable for silver. The $1.00 Silver Certificate is by far the most plentiful one available today. Followed by the $5.00 which is somewhat Scarcer and the $10.00 being the most difficult to obtain at times. Today they are unique mementos of that time in American history when silver coins jingled freely in people's pockets and a dollar was worth its weight in silver.
139. World War II Cents
The demands of World War II caused shortages everywhere. By 1943 the need of copper for the war effort became so acute that zinc coated steel was substituted for the making of one cent coins. This practice was ended after only one year because the hardness of the steel planchets caused excessive wear and damage to the dies. This historic one year type set of 1943 Lincoln Steel Cents has a coin from each of the three U.S. Mints, Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. They are reprocessed and look like new, but cost several times less. They come in an attractive plastic snap lock display holder.

250. War Dictates Change
It was October 8, 1942, when wartime nickels composed of copper (56%), silver (35%) and manganese (9%) were first introduced. This substitution of alloy was necessary, during the war years of 1942 to 1945, because the metal Nickel was a critical war material. A large mint mark was placed on the reverse side of the coin above the dome of Monticello (Thomas Jefferson's home) to indicate the change in alloy. This was the first time the letter "P" representing the Philadelphia mint was used on United States coinage. This set of eleven Wartime Jefferson Nickels, commonly referred to as the "short set" or the "set within a set," has long been popular with collectors. All sets are in nice average circulated condition and are mounted in an attractive display panel as pictured.
311. Obsolete $2.00 Note
Remember the old type $2.00 bills with the red seal? These United States Notes date back a minimum of thirty seven years and are no longer being issued. They are not all that plentiful today. Put some of these old-timers away today. All notes are in a protective archival quality currency holder.
416. Mint Halts Production
In the year 1955 the San Francisco Mint halted production and closed its doors after 101 years. One of the last coins it produced was the 1955 S Lincoln Wheat Cents. When it reopened in 1968 it resumed production of cents but, now they were the Memorial type. The 1955 S cent is the last issue of the Lincoln Head "Wheat Type" Cent to bear the famous "S" San Francisco mint mark. The quantity minted was extremely low that year. In fact it was less than half of the total amount minted the year before making them very difficult to find. We are offering these 1955 S cents, in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition, in lots of five coins. Put some away, you'll be glad you did in the years to come.
450. Australian Pennies
This Australian Penny Combo is one of our most exciting Specials. In each assortment you'll receive 5 different Australian half pennies and 5 different Australian large pennies. Yes I said half pennies. When was the last time you seen a half penny? Better yet, what can you buy for a half penny today? These bronze coins have been in circulation in the "Land Down Under" during the reign of three different Rulers, George V, George VI and Elizabeth II.
581. $1.00 Radar Note
The word "RADAR" can be spelled forwards or backwards and it will always be that same word. That's how the serial number is on these unique Crisp Uncirculated $1.00 Federal Reserve "RADAR" notes. Read the serial number forwards or backwards and it will always be the same number. This phenomenon of these serial numbers is a real rarity, as it only occurs about once in every 10,000 notes printed. All notes come in a clear plastic protective sleeve to preserve their tiptop condition and value. All notes are in a protective archival quality currency holder.
1083. 7 Varieties 1982 1c

1900. Millennium Dollars
This terrific Millennium Dollar Special consists of 6 different United States dollars. It starts off with a 1900 Morgan Silver dollar and ends with a Silver Eagle dollar dated 2000. In between those two are the following 4 different dollars: A Peace type dollar minted between 1921 and 1935. This type is Silver. An Eisenhower dollar. These were only minted for 8 years, 1971 to 1978. A 1999 Susan B. Anthony dollar which was the very last year of issue. A Sacagawea "Golden" dollar for the year 2000. All of the coins are in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Each coin is encapsulated to protect its beauty and value and mounted into a display card within an elegant solid Oak frame. The display cards are available in black, blue, burgundy or red. The frame, which measures 10 1/2 " W x 8" H can be mounted on a wall or stood upright with the free brass easel that accompanies this Special. The Oak frame also comes with a Brass Identification Plate so you can personalize your Millennium Dollar set. If you were to purchase all of the items in this incredible Special separately you could easily spend approximately $120.00 or more depending where you purchased them. If this Special were to be offered on one of those TV coin shows programs I have no doubts that the price would skyrocket to the $175.00 or $200.00 range. The TV coin shows have a tendency to be about double the everyday low Jake's price.
2000. 1900 - 2000
This two coin millennium Silver Dollar set starts with a 1900 Morgan silver dollar and ends with a Silver Eagle dollar dated for the year 2000. Both coins are in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition and housed in the attractive Capital Plastic holder.
