  1. South American coins are amazing! Pulled out an old coin tin I have from when I was a kid and found all these cool South American coins, including some from Argentina. Better get back to work now….

  3. I have a 1896 coin that was stamped oddly the first stamp coins were placed in the die one on top of the other then they were removed and the single coin was placed back in the dye and stamped again so the first stapling is in reverse and the last stamp is the way it should be. Is this coin of any value? Thank you David
