Default Well, well, well...this is certainly different!

Normally KT hopes to find silver halves in His Royal CRH Hunts, and the finds may run from Walkers to Bens to 64 Kens and various years of 40%Ag Kens....But this week was different! And not in a bad way!

Here is the recounting:

Box 1 - 1 keeper NIFC, and 1 clad Proof.
Box 2 - 1 clad Proof, 1 87 Ken, and 1 D. McArthur Korean War sticker Ken.
Box 3 - Here is where it got different....1 Ag Proof, 1 Ag bicent. Ken, 1 keeper NIFC.
Box 4 - 1 NIFC keeper, 2 clad Proofs.
Box 5 - a total blank!

Sot the total is: 2 silvers (1 proof and 1 bicent.), 3 NIFCs kept, 4 Proofs, 1 87 Ken, 1 D. McArthur Korean War sticker Ken.

So a real nice variety with oddball silvers to boot!

Now to the pics, the first of which shows the two silvers, Proof on the left, then pic shows their edges, still with the proof on the left. Both are real pretty and went in the 90%er tube! No pics of the 3 NIFCs (2 2007 and 1 2012, KT needs more of these years to finish his tubes of them. The rest of the pics are self explanatory. Enjoy them!

Now tomorrow is the big day! Flea market in the morning to find that coin seller and see if he brought me those 30 90%ers. If he does I will take some pics and post them in the Family Friendly Post section....Wish old King Totsalot some luck!

Nice hunt my lord. But the bicentennial is a 40% not a 90%!

The bicentennial is just clad, no silver, correct?

I thought the 40% stopped in 68 or so. Am I wrong?!?

Incorrect! There were silver 40%ers minted of the bicentennial coins made in sets for collectors. There were also clad sets minted. Both as Proofs and standard mint sets. Check again nsfr1206 the edge picture of those two coins...there is no copper showing!

Aha. Ok. So most of the bicentennials are clad. How do I tell the difference?

Just look at the edges closely. Once you get the "eye" for spotting silver, then you will spot them before you check the edge!

40% ers stopped in circulation in 1969, but continued in special mint sets into 1970. They are very hard to find, due to small mintage and they were in collector sets, which have to be broken to reach circulation!

That bicentennial is a 40% silver mint set only version. Not the circulation strike
