You're quite safe with that one, pennies where the year doesn't show won't be worth much regardless.

Exactly

I like looking at the years even if they aren't worth anything. It's just cool to know that a coin may have been used by someone in a completely different state a number of years ago.

Re: THE Thread

Collecting all the different years of a series is a popular activity among collectors You in the US are lucky, you have different mintmarks as well, giving more variation.

There used to be 3 mints, but then they got rid of one in Sacramento IIRC. Now it's just Denver and Philadelphia. Lucky for me, I live in Colorado so I've had the unique experience of visiting the Denver mint.

Re: THE Thread

Re: THE Thread

Yes I do, but I only use it to follow people. I myself don't tweet anything.
That depends if I consider the content of your tweets worth following.

Feaky how many reds infractions have u received so far?

Do you follow Hian/Filo/Sap?

If my content was equivalent to my GM analysis here, would you consider following me?

I have 12 red cards IIRC, hbu?

I didn't know they had a twitter account. Knowing Sap and Hian I'd say there's 99.9% chance that u are trolling me on this one.

I don't know about Sap, but Hian has one.

What don't you like about my analysis?

And I think it's quite obvious I'm closer to a perma... Remember I was perma'd at the beginning of the year?

There was even a mint in Carson City if you go back long enough. Coins from there are sought after, as they are rarer.

Visiting the mint must have been fun

I always wondered why Carson City was the capital of Nevada and that mint was probably the reason!

All I really remember is getting 2 unmarked Pennies which I still have

Could be, I guess...wouldn't know about that tbh.

Those pennies must be a nice memento

A recent auction set a new price record for one coin, did you know that? A bit over ten million dollars.

I didn't know that! Sounds completely insane to me, but whatever floats a person's boat!

A bit over my budget too

US collectors have the deepest pockets in the world. An equally rare European coin would not fetch nearly as much as that, even if it was in gold.
