I'm so excited. I mentioned to my Dad that I wanted to get some half dollars for coin magic and he showed me a jar where he had about fifty of them stashed away. They are mostly Kennedy's, but there are some Walking Liberties and Barber's too. Yay! Some are pretty beat up but most are in decent shape and some een brand new. He said I could pick about twenty of them to use so I'll be set for a while!

That is awesome!
I only have six half dollars that I use, and I happened to get a '64 from the bank once.
Lucky.

I also have some strange coin that my dad gave me, that has the left-side profile view of the American eagle on the back, where it says, "AMERICAN EAGLE," "1 oz." and ".999 Fine Silver."
On the front, there is some long-haired guy's right-side profile, with the initials "HJB" on his neck, as well as a thirteen-star border, and the words, "World Wide Mint Inc. 1981" at the bottom.
It's about a millimeter larger than a silver dollar.

I don't know what coin this is, but let me know if you find one in your cache, Patrick!

Sorry, I am not sure I understand....
:?

This all reminds me that I want to buy a good set of four silver '64 halfs.
That's about $40, though, and I don't want to spend that kind of money on half dollars that look nice.
Onto the wish list it goes...

Wait, mine says, "American Eagle" on the back, not "World Wide Mint."
