Because if you think the Left was mad at the beginning of the day Friday…they got madder when Ruth Bader Ginsburg finally succumbed to cancer.

Expect double the prior intensity!

This is the WQTH Daily Thread. You know the drill. There’s no Poltical correctness, but civility is a requirement. There are Important Guidelines,  here, with an addendum on 20191110.

We have a new board – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.

And remember Wheatie’s Rules:

2. No running with scissors.
3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
4. Zeroth rule of gun safety: Don’t let the government get your guns.
5. Rule one of gun safety: The gun is always loaded.

The Mandatory Coin

This week something a little less eclectic.

President Theodore Roosevelt thought our coinage was ugly. In some cases that was true, but even the non-ugly items were still rather…boring. He wanted our coinage to resemble ancient Greek coinage, many of which are legitimate works of art.

At the time, 1907, coins of the same metal tended to simply repeat the same uninspiring designs, for instance the $2.5, $5, and $10 gold pieces had essentially the same thing on them, and had had them since 1839. The $20 gold was different, at least, but it had been introduced in 1850, and by then the mint had a new chief engraver, Christian Gobrecht having been replaced by James Longacre. (Longacre, by the way, had one big weakness. He couldn’t, to save his life, get lettering lined up properly.)

So here it was 1907 and Gobrecht’s design was still being used on most of the gold coinage after a run of over seventy years, and Longacre’s, not much newer, was still on the double eagle.

A similar situation obtained for the silver. The silver dollar (not actually being issued in 1907) was of one design (the Morgan design), but the other silver denominations, the dime, the quarter, and the half dollar, had all been designed by Charles Barber in 1892. They all bore the same thick-necked androgynous head of Liberty, with virtually no detail in the design–deliberately, so the coins wouldn’t turn ugly and lose detail as they wore. (I guess they couldn’t turn ugly if they were ugly in the first place!). These replaced the Liberty Seated series (another Gobrecht design but considerably degraded in execution), which I believe I profiled (some) last week.

Interestingly, the Barber series can actually look pretty darned nice…if the coin is pristine, in a high uncirculated grade.

But the minute it started to wear…blah. Boring.

OK I will fess up to owning one of these…not the same year, though. But this one in the picture has a piss poor strike with lots of detail on the eagle completely missing. It’s not worn–it’s just that they didn’t stamp (“strike”) it properly. The tails of the arrows are an indistinct blob on this coin, the wingtip on our upper left has a lot of missing detail too. Mine is not perfect, but shows a lot more detail. (And I will bet it grades lower in spite of this.)

I bring up the quality of the strike because it becomes key to the story.

Anyhow, I mentioned that Roosevelt found our coinage boring. He then embarked on what he called his “pet crime”–getting the coinage redesigned. He managed to see through changes to the gold coinage, and some of those new designs are renowned for their beauty (and I’ve talked about them previously). But the silver would have to wait–there was a law mandating 25 years between design changes, and it had, thus far, only been 15 years.

So action on the silver front would have to wait a while. But we did get, in 1909, the Lincoln cent. And in 1913 the Indian Head or buffalo nickel.

Finally towards the very end of 1916, new designs rolled out for the dime, quarter and half dollar. (Yes technically that’s slightly less than 25 years but they were so eager to make the change they counted inclusively to justify getting rid of the Barber stuff as quickly as possible…and: Oh by the way, Barber was still working for the mint while this was going on!) And these were different designs for the different denominations, for the first time (other than the dime having a wreath instead of an eagle on the reverse, since 1837).

But with greater artistry came another issue. The new coins did not strike very well. Collectors today know all three of these designs for habitually not striking up well.

The new dime immediately got the nickname “Mercury Dime.” Yes, that is still the head of Liberty on the coin, but it is wearing a cap with wings on it to symbolize freedom of thought, and that reminded people of depictions of the Roman god Mercury. Often enough the details of her hair don’t show very well.

But it’s on the reverse where people look for a weak strike.

That thing in the middle is a “fasces,” a symbol of power in ancient Rome. The magistracies (everything from aedile to consul) all had fasces as their badge of office, and numbers of people called lictors would accompany the office holder (who had to do his job in person), carrying these fasces in their arms.

Edit, Thanks to Wheatie who made me realize I had elided too much. The fasces are a Roman symbol of unity and strength. When carried by the lictors, they represented the power that had been invested in the magistrate that they (the lictors) were accompanying. Roman magistrates, at least during the Republic, had to do their jobs in person. They couldn’t delegate their powers. The US often used the fasces for the same reasons the Romans did, but Mussolini then perverted the meaning of the symbol and so it would eventually be dropped here.

Fasces, of course, is the root of the word “fascism,” which was Mussolini’s name for his movement designed to make Italy great again for the first time since the 400s. So once World War II ended we put Roosevelt (the other one) on the dime and replaced those fasces with a torch.

If you look at the fasces, in the center, there are two bands running horizontally across. On many “Mercury” dimes, those two bands don’t strike up properly and the line separating them will be weak or completely absent. And again, this is the way the coin is actually made in the first place, it’s not wear. Today, when a “Mercury” dime is graded, in addition to the actual grade you might see the designation FSB for “full split bands.” Depending on the year and mint (and you’ll notice this coin has a D next to the E in ONE, making it a Denver mint product), that FSB designation could be common, or rare, and if it is rare, it can make the coin much more valuable than the same grade without FSB.

The Barber Quarter was replaced with the Standing Liberty Quarter, and even there, there were two major types of these quarters. Here is the first one:

(By the way if anyone can tell me how to get Wordpus to put pictures side by side, let me know.)

Notice one key, PG-13 detail about this coin…the exposed breast.

There’s a story that there was a huge public outcry about it and something Had To Be Done about it, but there’s no evidence of any such outcry in the newspapers of the time.

But they did change the design, midway through 1917.

Now Liberty is wearing chain mail and the shield has been redesigned. On the reverse the eagle has been raised a bit and three stars appear below it (and fewer stars appear near the edges, leaving the total number of stars at thirteen).

The mint hated this coin. It was nearly impossible to get to strike up. The overwhelming majority of the coins that came out looked poorly made. As it happens the 1917 coin is fairly sharply struck here, but there’s weakness on the 1924, especially on the date itself. The very next year the mint recessed the date because it was wearing off the coin too quickly. This 1924 is actually very well struck, for a Standing Liberty quarter. You can see most of the detail on Liberty’s head…and that’s the first place people look. Fully (or almost fully) detailed heads get the FH designation and it, too, can add huge money to the value of a coin.

But where you really need to look to evaluate the strike is at the shield emblem, and the rivets, on the shield.

The mint was glad to stop making these coins in 1930–and come out with the Washington quarter in 1932 (the 200th anniversary of his birth).

Finally, the half dollar. Here we have what is probably the most popular silver design in US coinage, though collecting Morgan dollars is more popular than collecting “Walkers” (for “Walking Liberty”).

Most people like to focus on the obverse–and our host occasionally posts a picture of one of these that has seen a lot of use, focusing on the motto.

But I think that is absolutely a kick ass eagle on the reverse.

This, too is a coin that is prone to striking issues. Liberty’s hand in the center of the coin is usually at least partially absent. You’ll notice on this one her fingers merge with the branch she’s carrying. People look for a complete thumb, but really those two fingers are the first thing to go.

I’ve yet to find a perfect one for my personal collection, though to be honest I haven’t really spent a ton of time looking.

But, as weak as this looks, in many cases, the entire center of Liberty is not struck at all. Instead of the fine details of her robe and the flag she’s draped in, there’s nothing but a blob of what looks like pitted metal running up and down through the center of the coin…the pitting being the way the silver looks before it’s struck, as well as after it isn’t struck. Truly sloppy workmanship!

There’s no special designation for this coin, but strike can make a huge difference in price nonetheless. People who collect Walkers know which dates are almost never fully struck; if you can score one of those, well, you’ll probably be eating Ramen for a few months afterwards to save money.

One interesting bit of trivia is that this is the only “mainstream” regular issue US coin to have a US flag on it.

This series run through 1947, to be replaced by the Franklin half dollar, with the Liberty Bell on the reverse (and people look for “Full Bell Lines” on that one).

But these are the coins that saw us through the Roaring 20s, and in two of the three cases, through the Depression and World War II. Today we have, I believe, much more boring stuff. (And the Jefferson nickel suffers from striking issues too, though the mint has finally figured out how to get all the steps to show up on Monticello, consistently.)

Standard Disclaimer: None of the coins shown are ones I own, though I’ll admit (in this case) to owning some examples of each of these designs. Prospective burglars should note that gold and silver aren’t the only heavy metals I collect, and that the other, unnamed heavy metal is kept a lot closer to me than the coins are.

          1. I agree, DP – the methods she used to defend females in a male-dominated world offended me – while she claimed she was defending equality – the genders will always be different mentally, physically, and emotionally – they cannot be equal even if she thought they should be – it is not a matter of equal pay only – in my mind – it is another affirmative action ploy to equate the sexes – in ways they can never be equated – know what I mean?

  4. I gave myself overnight to think before commenting about RBG, her death, and how I think/feel about it.

    I have seen disagreement from people around how it is “appropriate” to respond, as a Christian and/or as a human being, so I wanted to be sure I had given myself time to think it over.

    I didn’t know RBG so I don’t know how I would “mourn” her passing as an individual, no matter what. I could, if I were a leftist, mourn the passing of her hateful ideas and power. But I am a Conservative; I despised those things, so I’m glad they are gone. They were only departing this earth when she died; Ginsburg herself was making damned sure of that by hanging on to her power when she could and should have relinquished it long ago.

    I don’t believe in the concept of canonizing the dead simply because they are dead. I am not celebrating her death, but I AM celebrating her loss of the power to damage and indeed destroy human lives. It is on Ginsburg herself that her very death was the only was for that loss to come about. That was her option, she took it, and I am glad it has been taken away from her by death. Condemn me if you will, but I am VERY happy she can’t hurt us anymore.

    All in all, RBG led a despicable life. I don’t care if her actions “paved the way” for women in some way; I would prefer to make my own way, not in the path of evil, but under my own righteous steam. I will meet my Creator on those terms, and I will be glad to say that I rejected RBG and her ilk when that day comes.

    1. A dear friend of mine emailed me this about RBG–

      “RBG was truly a ‘great lady’, as the world judges such things. She was blessed from the beginning, to be born into a stable loving Jewish family, faithfully carrying on the millennia-old traditions of steadfast loyalty. All the promises of Blessing upon the Children of Israel, and all the promises of Curses upon the Children of Israel came to bear upon her narrow, fragile-looking shoulders. Read Chapters 27 and 28 of Deuteronomy, and pay special attention to the Last Curse (27:25), which is the curse upon those who shed innocent blood.
      Which outcome …… Blessings or Curses……depended upon her Choice, for the God of Heaven, the Creator of all Mankind and the Universe in which we live, He gives us Choice.
      Hear what He says. “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore, choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Deut. 30:19)

      {A snippet from the Great White Throne, Judgment Day:
      “Next case.”
      “Sir, we have had to move it to the Big Courtroom.”
      “You mean the one I had to build extra-large for Hitler because of the six million Jewish witnesses?”
      “No, Sir, I mean the really, really gigantic one you built for Mao.”
      “Who is the next case? And how many witnesses?”
      “Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Sixty million babies. About half of them black.”}

      The RBG story, not yet publicly acknowledged, sounds like a classic Greek tragedy. On one hand the heroine has the demi-god dimensions required for the protagonist. Brilliant, beautiful, charming. Outstanding at any endeavor to which she set her hands. Choosing the highest calling (Justice) at which to learn, grow, and exercise her abundant talents, and thereby to grace and stabilize modern American society with her tireless efforts and industry. She had chosen one of the most demanding professions, and she served her calling with her utmost efforts through constant partisan opposition and a plague of old-age-related impairments, almost to the day she died.

      But….

      But for this one thing. Seemingly, at first, a tiny thing. But then it grew, and multiplied, and threatened to take over. Much like an anthrax bacillus in the blood stream. What was that initially tiny thing that took over her life and wrought near havoc upon our nation? When we drag it out into the light and examine it, it looks very familiar. It is the same “tiny thing” that brought every every Greek Hero to his tragic end. It was hubris.

      For RBG had sworn allegiance to the Law, as does every lawyer, and every Judge, and every official in our government.
      In this country we operate according to the principle of “rule of law, not rule of men”. (That, incidentally was one of the few great advances in government that has blessed all mankind.) That Law is written in our Constitution, and it is written in plain English for all to see. It is established, and can be changed, by the Legislative. And even the Constitution can be canceled, replaced, or modified by the States in concert. But as long as it exists as our current standard and guide, it rules over all citizens, whatever their rank, for “no man is above the law”. Few of us are ever tempted to violate that principle. But there are the few, whose innate qualities of excellence and expertise (the means) and outstanding rank (the opportunity) set them in high positions of power. All that is needed is the motive. And we need look no further than the human heart, wherein this motive lurks.
      What is this evil thing? ‘Ambition’?, ‘Pride’?, preferring one’s own judgment over that of others? It is “I will choose what I have chosen !” The psychologists call it Choice-Will-Ego. The Greeks call it hubris. God calls it rebellion. To those caught within its tentacles it seems normal, courageous, and right. But, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but the ways thereof are the Ways of Death”. Time and again, in RBG’s admirable career, she encountered situations in which the Constitution pointed one way, but she, trusting herself and her judgment above that of the Founders and Legislators, pointed another way, because in her eyes her ways seemed right. And, as is true of all Supreme Court decisions, others suffered the consequences.

      Trusting in His eternal justice and mercy, I commend her soul to the Judge of all Mankind.”

    Their chief tactic is to alter the meaning of words while terrorizing the population. This is a MKUltra technique developed by the Nazi Party during such events as Kristalnatch, the burning of the Reichstag and Operation Canned Goods.

  8. Hey, a thought 🤔
    Since bill Clin toon appointed rbg, wouldn’t you think one of the first things we’d hear is a comment from him in the news of her dying?? Hmmm, anyone think he can’t get to a camera from wherever he is!? Inquiring minds want to know…

  9. Last hours alter indescribable suffering. (at least those I know with similar conditions endured such to the point of incoherence ) and no massage of love to loved ones, no prayer for the afterlife?

    We are to believe that she went to her end with “instructions” for the President?

    Wonder how that is going over wherever she is.

    One thing we have in common with her right now…Obama’s input has ceased to matter.

      1. Well, it’s not as if Khan thought that anyone who might miss him would be alive. (He had, after all been in cold sleep for a couple of centuries, at least according to “Space Seed,” the original series episode to which this was a sequel.)

        But of course that just makes RBG’s actions look even worse.

              1. Thanks…hope this comes out on some of the talk shows. Show us the proof (not that it matters, but it certainly was very convenient for everyone to immediately jump on it…almost looks planned….hmmm), but then we all know how quick Obama is quick to do that, don’t we?

    1. He doesn’t think there will be more riots over the SCOTUS nominee because the rioters do not keep up with politics. But all that has to be said is one word: abortion. They will melt down, march, loot, and riot over the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned.

  10. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, January 30, 2012, giving advice to Egyptians on writing a new constitution:

    “You should certainly be aided by all the constitution writing that has gone on since the end of World War II. I would not look to the U.S. Constitution if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa — that was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, had an independent judiciary. It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done. Much more recently than the U.S. Constitution, Canada has the Charter of Rights and Freedoms — dates from 1982. You would almost certainly look at the European Convention on Human Rights. So, yes, why not take advantage of what there is elsewhere in the world?”

    1. We do see what South Africa has done with their constitution? They are free to murder white farmers and when and where does the S African constitution kick in?

      I like our constitution and Ginsberg has never lived under any other constitution maybe she would have learned a thing or two? Grass is always greener on the other site until one has to live with it.

        1. Yes so true! Ours was created for ethical people and we see when unethical people get hold of it how they abuse it. We have to many judges who do not respect the constitution.

  11. Air Force Harnessing the Power of Directed Energy

    18 Mar 2019 | Posted by Flanker41

    The U.S. Air Force has an unprecedented power to direct energy in a way that serves, protects and champions freedom. From powerful electromagnetics to electro-optics, they are always exploring new ways to give our warfighters the upper-hand.

    Harnessing the power of the electromagnetic spectrum to enable Airmen to effectively and affordably strike critical targets at the speed of light.

    Directed Energy also enables experimentation, prototyping and exploration of materiel and non-materiel solutions that align with force capabilities and strategies. Learn more.

        I just didn’t want to use up anyone’s storage keeping the results around. (And I don’t trust third party sites not to deep six things two months from now.)

    1. The sinner in me is sorry not sorry.

      The Christian in me is very sad for them.

      I war daily with myself. Some days are better than others.

      I would like to be kind, gracious, and generous towards them. I tried that for a long time, but they kept getting worse and worse….making it harder and harder. Now they are literally making war on my country…promising to “burn it down”, etc.

      Fuck ‘em.

      Dust off my sandals, at least until the war ends in their total defeat.

  14. Biteme’s dementia is SPREADING…here’s Nadless making no sense…a lame duck? POTUS is gonna nominate a pick and get it voted on before the end of his FIRST TERM…what’s Nadless talkin’ ’bout?

    Filling the SCOTUS vacancy during a lame duck session, after the American people have voted for new leadership, is undemocratic and a clear violation of the public trust in elected officials. Congress would have to act and expanding the court would be the right place to start.

              Remember that picture of the two penguins where one hits the other on the head? That’s him!!

              He walks like a penguin – and – he is duck-toed, too – plus he wears his pants up to his chest – the guy is a duck-toed dork!

  15. The DIMs can take their RANTS of “WAIT” and SHOVE ‘EM…

    VP LBJ had himself sworn in as President aboard AF1 returning President Kennedy’s body to Washington, with the blood-covered widow forced to stand beside him…

    NEVER forget that.

    “The King is dead. Long live the King.”

    The SCOTUS has a vacancy. That vacancy MUST BE FILLED. Our Republic depends on it.

    Ginsberg should have stepped down under Obama, and she chose NOT to… she wanted a vagina to replace her. Well, it’s HER fault it could not happen.

    1. I do NOT fault LBJ for taking the oath immediately. We can’t have a vacancy in that office.

      Everyone who wins the election has the oath administered to him privately before the inauguration ceremony…in case it runs late, or someone drops dead unexpectedly at the wrong time. The presidency is filled by the new individual at 12:00:00 ET no matter what happens, even if for some whacky reason he doesn’t get to take the oath in front of the crowd until 12:30.

    1. It’s sad that people are too nice. If I were in that car, the minute the window was smashed, I would have reversed at full speed, then at full speed forward swerve left and drive off. I wouldn’t have care how many I hit and maimed. Self defense!

  17. Twitter is simply amazing today.

    Leftists actually believe that Biden will win, AND that they will flip the Senate.

    Psychologists will spend decades unpacking the left’s insanity over the past 10 years.
