I think the Mercury Dimes are better than the half dollars... I checked 1929 prices, and the average is $3 value. Maybe a bit less for condition. But a collector might still be interested.

I'd check dates and mint marks, just to be sure.

Sorry to hear this disgusting habit has hopped coasts.

I used to be. Now I mostly use my old coins for cufflinks.

I agree. Some types of coins with certain mint marks (S as opposed to P as opposed to D, denoting where they were struck) are particularly rare and valuable. It depends on coin type and year. I can't recall whether any of these are the kind that might have potential, but it might be worth a quick check.

Through the portal: I believe this might be Chet B's Sulka tie featured on LA Law. (Looks exactly like one I found, though a different color).

Attic thrifting: A rayon Girbaud shirt Parker Lewis wore on Parker Lewis Can't Lose.

More to come...

General consensus with wearing ties with a button-down collar? 

post #23513 of 51164

Ha that's awesome @noob in 89. Thanks for posting. I love that tie. 90s (or 80s?) in the best way.

I mentioned a while back about posting some knowledge on my blog about how to decipher Patagonia tags. Here's my first crack, inspired by the conversation earlier today... I photographed Snap T's from 1988, 2002 and 2014 for this post.
