I started hearing back around March last year that the Mint was asking for submissions for the design of the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins. The winner really threw me a curve ball....I mean a curve coin that is and I think we will all agree that the design is something with a bit of flair to it....
Later in 2014, we will see the first-ever “curved” coin issued by the U.S. Mint. The winning design, submitted by Cassie McFarland of San Luis Obipso, California, depicts a baseball glove on the obverse (heads) side. Meanwhile, the reverse (tails) side depicts a baseball. Thus, the curve not only simulates the pocket of a glove, but the look and feel of a baseball. It’s really quite nifty. Be ...
While walking their dog, a couple from Northern California struck gold — literally.
Last spring, the anonymous couple dug up rusty tin cans with 1,427 gold coins, dating from 1847 to 1894. Nearly every coin was in mint condition and has never been circulated, according to the Professional Coin Grading Service of Santa Ana, which recently authenticated the coins.

With so much excitement and to avoid a modern-day Gold Rush — a swarm of amateur prospectors with metal detectors in tow — the middle-aged husband and wife want to remain anonymous. They found the coins on a rural property...
The Massapequa Coin Club was created in the year 1968 and if you live out on Long Island I encourage you to meet up with this group which meets the second Thursday of each month......or at least during the twice a year show... stop bye when they hold this very nice small show with about 25 dealers / club memebers selling coins at the Elks Lodge #21262, 2162 Veterans Blvd. Massapequa, NY 11758.
I had a chance to stop bye today and walk the floor, I guess that is what we do searching for hidden treasure, selling a few pieces, and catching up with old friends. Was worth my time as I picked up several nice coins which will be on my site shortly....This club puts a lot of effort into their show and its worth helping .........
