Coins & Paper Money

"Muhammad Shah, Rupee, Shahjahanabad, AH1135/Ry.5 assuming it weighs 10 - 11 grams."

This was Gary’s identification of the coin shown below that is now in my possession. It weighs 11.4 grams, 20 mm in diameter, 3mm thick, non-metallic, however, it does not “sound” like a silver coin when dropped on a table. I think I found Gary’s listing (KM #436.56 - Type 436) on page 802 of my NEW Krause catalog, 6th edition. The characters on my coin do not match the image in the book and there is no year AH1135 (only AH1131-AH1133). Does the rupee appear to be genuine and can someone also verify the KM number or point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

Information on a coin

............my first copy of Krause's Standard Catalog of Wold Coins 1701-1800, 6th Edition. I know these catalog prices are sometimes way off, but it looks like some are within my budget. I particularily like the German States. Hours of fun browsing for sure !

I JUST RECEIVED......

Just announced TODAY, April 1, the US Mint is discontinuing the 1¢, 5¢ and 10¢ coins starting in 2016. Full production will continue through September 30th, the end of the Mint's fiscal year.

 

According to the Mint Director's office, currently vacant, "those coins represent 90% of the coin volume we produce, and their elimination will allow us to achieve considerable cost savings (as mandated by Congress) and give us funds to begin the process of designing the new 75¢ and $1.50 coins due to start production sometime next year.

 

In addition, the quarter dollar's metal composition will be changed to copper plated zinc.  This decision, also mandated by Congress, was made to ease the hardship on zinc producers that the elimination of the 1¢ coin would have caused. 

 

The Mint Director's office added "the 1¢ - 10¢ coins will remain legal tender until the last day of March, 2026.  Beginning the next day, the process to begin withdrawing those coins from circulation will begin."

 

In seperate news, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing announced the new $200 bill will feature a portrait of Ronald Reagan.  The final design details will be released later this year.  Production to begin 4/1/2016.

 

--------------------

Wow!  Exciting news today.  Personally, I think the zinc producers must have a powerful lobby in Congress.

United States to discontinue coins

I am not new to selling on ebay but i am new to selling coins and notes on ebay. I have some uncirculated star notes that i would like to list. I have read the guidelines and have viewed some listings. Is there anything i should know about selling notes? Is it a bad idea to use a picture of the exact note that i am selling? I have noticed some listings that do not show the serial numbers and other listings that describe the note in the picture is not the note that the buyer is bidding on. Any information for a novice note seller would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
