    Taking shits are like dating women, you never know what your gonna get, sometimes it's pleasurable with a splashing ending, other times it's pure misery and allot of wiping! The only difference is you can't divorce your asshole, in sickness and in health it's an inseparable union to the very end!

    Figuring it out

    Re: Ghost hobbies?

    I'll ring in with my childish hobby. I've been collecting Hot Wheels off and on for 20 years. I have way too many and was thinking about quitting and was losing interest in things after my wife passed, then my son got interested in collecting them too. So that's something me and him go out and do together a couple days a week. I've also started collecting coins. Especially the new West Point minted quarters released in 2019 and 2020. I'm trying to pick up things now that will increase in value for my son's future. Pertaining to coin collecting, I had no idea the worth of some of the coins you find in your pocket change.

    I remember as a boy in the early 60s how my dad would take the change out of his pocket for whatever reason and there would be buffalo nickels there. We thought nothing of it, but yet I still recall this.

    I started collecting coins when I was 10. I had a 1946 silver dime one day (this is in the USA), didn't think much about it, left it in my drawer and left for school. When I came home from school that same day and emptied my pockets of change I saw I now also had a 1946-D dime. Two dimes, same year, different mints. I decided, hey I think I'll start collecting coins as I'm off to a good start!

    So much of my collection came from pocket change. My friends would let me look over their change and swap out any coins I wanted. Later, in the mid-70s, I would go to the bank and they would let me look over their 20-dollar bills for the pre-1957 ones that did not say "In God We Trust" and let me swap them out. In 1976, when the 2-dollar bill debuted, they came from the treasury banded in packs of 25, sequentially numbered. I bought a banded pack, still have it, sequentially numbered and pristine. The only thing I failed to do was to take it directly over to the post office to have it date-stamped as First Day Issue. I didn't know about doing that or if it matters today.

    I got good at spotting old coins in other people's change that if they briefly pulled out their change my eyes could notice the particular wear of the old coins even in the few seconds they would have their hand open, and I'd ask to see their change to swap out the good ones! I got so good at judging wear, especially nickels, that I could look at the reverse side of an old nickel (the side with no date on it) and be able to tell you the date on the other side, within a margin of 1 year either direction.

    In mid-teens I used to hang out at a coin shop after school, looking at all of the old coins and the proprietor came to know I was just a kid with no money. One day, he offered to sell me one of those tri-fold coin books, this one full of Canadian pennies dated 1920s to 1950s. I looked at him hesitantly until he said it would cost me only 50 cents. I was ecstatic. What a nice man.

    At age 15 my best friend stole a portion of my collection. The betrayal wrecked me and put a damper on my hobby for the longest while. But, I still have my collection today. Love the war nickels.

    I had have a copper wheat penny since my youth that has the date 19 5. Yes, the third number is missing. I assume maybe 1955. Now, whether it is a true mis-struck coin (valuable) or from long-ago after-factory damage (not valuable), I've yet to bother with finding out, if that's possible.

    Re: Ghost hobbies?

    I would say if that 19 5 penny is in good condition it is probably worth a decent amount. A person removing the number should leave so noticeable marks. When I find coins with errors or they don't look correct, I search for them on ebay and see if it is something people are looking for. I bought a jewelers loop a couple months ago so I could look closer and some coins for double dies and things. A guy I know that is really into the coin hobby told me I needed to invest in a scale that measured grams. He said there are lots of error coins that can only be found by weighing them. That's a little more invested than my interest is at the moment.

    Thanks Unboxxed for your history on coin collecting. I'm sure having who you thought was a friend steal from you was a heart breaker.

    I spent tonight looking at my coin collection, took pictures of that 19 5 penny:






    And then I found a brothel token I bought back in the 70s from that coin shop proprietor. Man, it took me a lot of guts to buy it because I was 15 and was sure he would not sell it to me. It had something to do with that forbidden world that I had not yet entered:



    Ha, I see you can buy them online for $3.99 USD. I paid 50 cents, I think.

    Maybe it’s my eyesight – I’m not getting any younger (LOL) but does there seem to be some disfigurement around the missing digit as if it was intentionally removed?

    If so, then how? Maybe a better question is why? Maybe there’s a story to the coin that could increase its value if only that story was known?

    I thought about that, knowing a little about metal fabrication, I'm figuring there was a seam of contamination in the copper sheet, casing the digit to break off and remain in the die, filling the hardened die's digit with a sliver of copper, then continued that way until it dislodged or removed after inspection. Kind of like chewy candy getting stuck in your molar. It could be a legit misprint. Anything that gets between the bottom and top impressions, gets stamped into the coin. When it's a damaged die or misaligned strike they tend to be worth something.

    1955 double strike was caused by failure to advance the copper sheet causing the die to stamp twice, like a couple broken teeth on a timing chain causing it to jump timing, lots of mfg machinery makes this kind of mistake, you should see what a puzzle looks like when it's stamped two or thee times before it advances!

    In the beginning, it only ate men, now it's coming for the women and children, and nothing can stop it.

    I played a little D&D when I was in middle school and really enjoyed it. I'd love to play again with people that actually knew what they were doing, but there aren't any groups near me.

    If you come across one of these in your pocket change, you just hit the jackpot. Since it's worth so much though, there are fakes out there too.
