I'm sure every sorter out there has come across a few of these from time to time.Some have masonic symbols,or liberty bells,lincoln smoking,or some little weird guy on them? Who is that guy?
And do the masonic ones get you into some secret club,or party

I've come across a set of 1975 pennies in a board that has 50 coins in it,one for every state stamped on them,are these worth anything,rare,or are they common?
It reads across the top, Land of the U.S.A.
Thanks in advance,PP

I've came across a few. None have ever been worth much. They are just a giftshop novelty.

That weird guy is probably John F. Kennedy.

I have been collecting the states as I come across them in my sorts. Much more difficult to build a set that way. They aren't really worth anything.. just for fun.

If your percentages are low.. just sort more. If your percentages are high.. just sort more.

I think that it would be worth something, A complete set in a board. Can you post some pics?

You can sell anything on E-bay if you market it correctly and have nice pictures.

Well true.. it would probably sell on eBay.. but they would probably take all the profits. These were very common for the Bicentennial.. maybe 33 years is enough time for them to get back to a little premium.

Slick is right about you being able to sell anything on eBay. I used to sell Roadkill Brand Possum Parts there. You guys would have loved the ad.

I have a complete set. No fancy board or anything just the coins in a tube. I picked them up from a member here just as a novelty. Maybe hand-outs in the future.

Deal

Live free or die.
Plain and simple.

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your council or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

That is cool! Sounds about right that it would have been something for the bicentennial. The person producing this item for sale couldn't wait for the 1976 pennies to be out so they would have had to use the 1975 minted coins.

Neat!!! Thanks for posting the picture.

Enjoy your searches, everyone.

I have only found one stamped with FL. Which is appropriate since that's where I am. It was 1975 also. I wonder if there would be a annual market for this. I could see it marketed in one of those Sunday newspaper magazines like "Parade" where they "found" a huge collection in a bank vault and it's now available to the public for the unbelievably low price of $19.99. Don't forget to add the shipping and handling for a mere $12.95.

I have several JFKs. No others. Some of the JFKs are in zinc, so someone had been striking them pretty recently.

Someone should counter stamp a bunch with realcent. I'm sure counterstamping is legal - no intent to defraud.

If someone stamped with RealCent, then it would have to be only copper ones.

The only counterstamped coin I've found was a canadian 1948 cent with a "B" stamp. I'd be interested to know the story behind it.

Counterstamping appears to be legal as long as it isn't advertising, I think. It would be cool if this was legal to do Realcent.

That's neat about finding Florida!

I am sure that if someone thought they could make money from it and they were still around in large enough quantities they will appear somewhere for sale.

If we started stamping the coins, we could start, "where's Lincoln, where's JFK" type tracking for coins, or at the very least a fun seasonal contest to find the handful of circulated coins with a specific realcent stamping.


though we all know these would end up in either HCBTT or Highroller's hoards so what's the point

From seeing that board, with Alaska and Hawaii on top, I would be willing to place a substantial bet that it was originally produced in 1959 or shortly after... two new states that year, and a new reverse on the cent... add a little patriotism, publicity, cardboard... and voila!

Very early on in my copper sorting I was counterstamping all my 1982's with "C" or "Z" so I wouldn't have to check twice. Now that I'm more familiar with this hobby I can detect the difference quick enough to make the stamping unnecessary. If you find one I stamped, it would be cool if you let me know!

Found a '71 LMC last night with what looks like the lunar landing module and an astronaut on the moon with the earth in the background. A date of 11-19-69 was stamped on it below the scene. I set aside all my stamped cents. What the heck, the majority of them are copper pre-'82s anyway.

Wow, I get between 60 to 80 1982's per box. How long did it take to counterstamp all of these and what kind of equipment did you use? I'll be on the look out for them in the wild.
