Another Pick from the Treasure Box

Another Pick from the Treasure Box

The Treasure Box

I'm having fun going through some of my older collection that I found in the basement. These are various picks I obtained between 2007 - 2010

This time, I found a 2009 Proof set. Presidential dollar proofs, quarter proofs and a special penny set.

It's the penny set that caught my attention.

Special Designed Pennies

In 2009, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln penny, the design on the obverse featured special events in Lincoln's life.

Looking closely at the proof specimen, I noticed the bottom is turning "silver". It seems the copper plating is wearing off? Something odd is happening, I have proof pennies that are changing color!

Great post you have here, I don't know much at all about numismatology

No worries! I'm Benjamin and my wife is Lauren. We're thinking of restarting the "Ben and Lauren show" in a few weeks.

I have a bunch of mint sets. I think they are pretty cool, but for some reason they don't have much value.

Did not Lincoln walked 10 miles to return a penny?

☠️Shiver me timbers, what a clever way to hide your treasure chest, by disguising it as an ordinary file box.☠️
