    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?
