Rich Uhrich Rare U.S. Coins Inc. News & Newps  October 29, 2009
Lots of New Seated Half Dimes, Dimes, Quarters and Halves

I have acquired quite a few new coins from the  Whitman Philadelphia show, the recent PAN show in Monroeville, PA, and some local shows.  The newps include some real rarities including an 1841-O Closed Buds Small o dime in Good-4, an 1866 dime in Good-4, an 1825 B-2 quarter near the terminal die state in Good-4 with an unlisted obv. counterstamp, an 1871-S quarter in Fine-12, an 1802 half in Fine-12/VG-8, 1808 half in NGC AU-55 CAC with incredible toning, an 1850 half in VG-8, a pretty 1872-S half in AU-53 dipped, 1868 and 1870 3c silvers in XF, an 1887 3c nickel in AU, and a 2000-P "Cheerios" Sacagawea dollar in PCGS MS-67.  I'm not sure which of the coins above is the rarest, but they're all very difficult to obtain, so if you need one of these for your collection, contact us as soon as possible before someone else gets it.  I will be posting the pictures over the next few days, but you can reserve any coin and decide on it after the picture has been posted.

I have a NEW table at the upcoming Baltimore show (#1504) which is a bit closer to the action.  When you enter the door, turn right, then turn right at the auction lot viewing and you should be able to find us by looking for the colors matching this newsletter.

Thank you again for your business and I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween!

We still don't have a winner for last month's trivia question.  So we're going to try it again.  I didn't know this question was so difficult, so I will give you a hint.  Please note only one answer per person per question, so if you've answered this question before, you have already used up your one answer for this question.

What year from 1800 to date had the fewest total silver coins issued by the U. S. Mint?  Note:  For this question, we will be using the date on the coin, not necessarily the date of manufacturing.  HINT:  The fewest total silver coins issued was zero!  But no eligible contestant has provided the right year so far. 

E-mail us the answer, first one with correct answer gets the 2009 ASE.  An American Silver Eagle is worth about $20 in today's market.  Full rules are on the About Us page on our website.
