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at least, but it had been introduced in 1850, and by then the mint had a new chief engraver, Christian Gobrecht having been replaced by James Longacre.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. For some inexplicable reason, we do aspirate initial (start of word) p’s t’s and k’s when they are in front of a vowel. (pot, top, and cot [k sound].) Put an S in front of those letters, and suddenly we don’t aspirate them: spot, stop, and Scot. (Put your hand in front of your mouth as you say the words, you’ll feel a puff of air in some cases (the aspirated ones) and not in others.)

      I say it’s inexplicable, because in English, the aspiration doesn’t distinguish words. There’s no difference between phot and pot, except that you sound a little funny if you can say pot without aspirating the p. There are languages, however where the difference between ph and p is greater than the difference between p and b.

              Both open casket funerals and cremation are doctrinally not allowed in Judaism. Jews are forbidden to “gaze upon the face of the dead” and cremation is a violation of the Jewish belief that the entire body must be “inviolate” upon death.
              Battlefield deaths and deaths at sea or from aircraft accidents are treated as if they occurred at home or on land — the body, in the most intact state possible, must be buried in the ground, in a plain wood casket, within 24 hours, or within a couple of days.

        1. Yes, convoluted scenario: The media knew she had died in 2019 and had kept it secret all this time, as well as all of her family, all the SCOTUS justices, and all who worked and interacted with her. The alternative to that being that a double was able to impersonate her successfully with every single person she would come in contact with, up close and personal (even if on the internet) — someone who looked and sounded exactly like her and had all of her inside knowledge in order to fool people. I can’t believe people think it possible.

      2. Keeping a person ‘alive’ does not necessarily mean they are physically ‘alive’ – they could have a double for appearances – and law clerks can write decisions based upon past references – it has nothing to do with her ‘health’ – it is all a hoax because they did not want PT to be able to put up a replacement. If they slipped and falsely reported she died in 2019 – what did they know – backtracking and deleting their reporting does not change the fact that maybe she did die then – but admitting it would provide an opportunity for PT to select her successor.

        Then – there is the alleged note written to her granddaughter – when did this happen – last week or better than a year ago.

        So – nobody is putting forth crazy conspiracy theories – they are looking realistically – how could a woman with pancreatic cancer survive for so long? Questioning and discussing possibilities is not putting forth falsehoods – it is looking at what we do know – which is very little – and logically discerning what might be truthful and what is not – keeping her ‘alive’ in the minds of the public has nothing to do with extraordinary medical procedures – it has to do with substituting another long after she has expired.

        1. In my opinion, Joe M’s talk of “keeping Ginsburg alive” sounds and is crazy.

          law clerks can write decisions based upon past references
          Possibly. But can you state exactly how that would be accomplished? the schedule of SCOTUS and how each justice writes, reports, and relates to the others? how and with whom they eat lunch? whether it would be noticed if one of them were absent without explanation? Here’s an elementary accounting of what the justices do. https://junior.scholastic.com/issues/2019-20/101419/a-day-in-the-life-of-a-supreme-court-justice.html

          how could a woman with pancreatic cancer survive for so long
          She was diagnosed with early stage pancreatic cancer in 2009 and was presumed cured after she survived over five years. This is a standard occurrence for early stage diagnosis. She had a recurrence in August of 2019 and died a little over a year later. This is not uncommon, either. According to Johns Hopkins, “The average patient diagnosed with late-stage pancreatic cancer will live for about 1 year after diagnosis.” That is exactly what happened to her.

          keeping her ‘alive’ in the minds of the public has nothing to do with extraordinary medical procedures – it has to do with substituting another long after she has expired.
          If you mean having a body double step in and interact with every person she would have come in contact with, please explain in detail what her day would be like — what she did as she worked on SCOTUS — coffee in the morning with others? lunch in the cafeteria? whom she saw and talked with, how the justices deliberate on cases, all the situations the double would have had to face, etc.

          Were RBG’s doctors examining the double, too? Or did her multiple doctors, dentists, and other health professonials know she had died but went along with the scam, jeopardizing their professional standing and medical licenses?

          I would like to see an example of a situation where a double interacted with all the people someone knew (speaking with them, writing to them, etc.) and fooled them all. If you know of one, please provide it. On true crime programs, the families of missing loved ones who receive purported texts can tell they are not from the person. And that’s text, which does not involve appearance, sound, gait, height, weight, posture, mannerisms, and all the nuances of behavior and accumulated knowledge and experience that a person has that no one could possibly know all of.

          People who insist on the “double” theory never provide explanations of how it could be done, practically and thoroughly, based on the person’s actual schedule and contacts. Stating that clerks could have written opinions for her — which might be possible, but is highly unlikely — does not explain how her absence could have been pulled off in all the other ways. It doesn’t even explain the details of how her clerks could accomplish that without anyone being the wiser. It comes from a lack of knowledge of how SCOTUS works — which we all have — and invents scenarios without attending to all the pitfalls.

          Do you think you could be fooled by an imposter pretending to be someone you know well? Do you not think you would notice something? Even in the movies, doubles (twins!) are not able to fool people for long, if at all. That’s because it’s not possible for a person to become another so thoroughly that no one would be the wiser.

          1. Truths, I just presented the ‘possibilities’ – normally, people reject what they cannot perceive or justify – whatever one might think is ‘just crazy’ could be ‘possible’ considering the devious nature of those who have much invested in all of the ‘craziness’ we are experiencing.

            If ‘doubles’ do short, limited public appearances or ‘old’ videos are used – it is ‘possible’ to fool the public.

            As far as ‘created decisions’ is concerned – she has written many papers and decisions over time – it is ‘possible’ to write a dissertation in light of her thinking – even using her own phrases – how she ‘talks’ on paper.

            satan ‘creates’ deception – and we are constantly being ‘fooled’ by his ‘creations’ – the Internet is full of them.

            I am not trying to convince anyone these things are the whole ‘truth’ – and nothing but, the truth – just putting out there what ‘might’ be – I have no idea of what ‘is’ – we have been fooled before – and will be fooled, again.

            If someone would answer the questions I have presented about how such things could be possible, I would listen. But no one ever does. Even saying her clerks could write opinions for her does not explain how the process works on SCOTUS. No one is willing to back up what they’re saying with facts.

            “Joe M” says “precisely why they were keeping Ginsburg alive.” Okay, show me how they did that. I’ve never heard of any human having the power over life and death, except in the case of murder. So exactly how did they keep her alive? With a double? Then show me exactly how that worked, down to the last detail regarding the SCOTUS procedures; her doctors; her family; people who worked with her like hair dressers, accountants, home aids, etc.; all the public appearances she did during the time she was being “kept alive” and who all had to be fooled, and how that was accomplished. No one ever explains those things. If we’re going to put forth such scenarios, we need to be able to back them up. Until someone does that, I will not see them as “possibilities,” but impossibilities.

        We need to get ready to get kicked off Twitter for news and possibly WordPress for daily comms. Twitter has changed its policies without notice to include “misinformation about the election” as reasons to limit network and suspend accounts. When people can’t post real Trump information Twitter, even if one goes on without logging in, Twitter will become as worthless as a car on cinder blocks.

        Not a problem – my best information now is coming from Gab already.

        Gab is now going to be running with its own hardware for things which were being hosted out, so that they can stay online after Big Tech pulls the plug. Parler is also going to remain “censorship-free”, but I suspect they will have to deal with deplatforming and may or may not be able to beat it – they will undoubtedly suffer interference.

      * Harry Reid changed the rules to allow a simple majority vote for Circuit Court nominees dealing out the minority.

      * Chuck Schumer and his friends in the liberal media conspired to destroy the life of Brett Kavanaugh and hold that Supreme Court seat open.

        1. I don’t believe Circuit Judges are called “Justice” which is why I thought the account had to be fake. She hasn’t even been NOMINATED yet (unless something changed very recently), so she’d not be calling herself “Justice.”

    Once you figure out Democratic leadership in Congress, Hollywood, academia, etc. have all gone stark raving baying-at-the-moon-and-eating-their-own-sh*t insane you’ll understand why they literally can’t stop themselves at this point.

    No no don’t thank me.

    This is what I do.

    A must-listen! Kevin McCarthy takes a closer look at the famous portrait of Washington crossing the Delaware. His insight is powerful and inspirational on a historical message relevant to our continued commitment to our incredible country. @GOPLeader

    1. I’m gonna have Nov 3 & 4 off from work. The 3rd to vote, and the 4th to sit back and watch the left jump off tall buildings.

      Might have to start up a one way moving agency. Maybe this time dims really will just leave.

    1. Republican US House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, in an interview with Gregg Jarrett, shared a couple of important items related to the Durham investigation of the Deep State players involved in Obamagate.

      In addition, Jarrett said the following:

      Former FBI Director James Comey knew Carter Page was a CIA asset when he signed multiple FISA warrants to spy on Carter Page and candidate and President Trump. He knew this because Carter Page told him.

      Comey already knew Carter Page was an asset of the CIA. You know how I know this? Carter Page before the first FISA warrant application, he sent Comey a direct letter that said I work for the CIA. I’m not a Russian spy. How do I know that? Because he gave me a copy of the letter, it’s in both of my books. It’s also part of his Congressional testimony you’ll recall. So isn’t it true that James Comey concealed this information from the FISA Court and perpetrated a fraud when he signed the FISA warrants?

      1. Yes, this is big. Comey’s only lie out of this doesn’t hold water. He MIGHT have been able to say in his defense “I didn’t believe Page – I believed he had been turned by the Russians”, but that information would have had to have been provided to the FISA court in the warrant, including his reasons for thinking it true, and the judge would have had to have made the final call on it. Keeping that information out of the FISA request would have been criminal, IMO.

        Is there information like that in the redactions? If there is, and it includes LIES, Comey’s goose is cooked.

        Comey gave Dylann Roof the gun. I don’t believe anything that comes out of his mouth.

      1. Yup. Interesting. But what this means is that Durham was on things BEFORE the 10/17 appointment. As in 7 months before that. WOW. Something was up. That was even before a lot of their shenanigans like Charlottesville, and stuff preceding it in the early part of the year.

    2. Gee, that’s good of you Lindsey. Least you could do given that you did absolutely nothing with the Senate Judiciary Chair for 2 years, you sniveling wormtongue.

      1. If you read Brian’s thread, you will recall that it was Graham and not Grassley who defended Kavanaugh, who aggressively went on the offensive AGAINST the DIMs’ attack on Kavanaugh… while Grassley was all about, let’s all play nice.

        And we are being reminded also that there was nothing his committee could do about subpoenas to former FIB peeps until Durham was finished with them. He’s my senator and I have been very vocal to his Aides and very angry in my emails, and I feel now that I was already biased when I judged him as you are doing now. You don’t have to agree with me of course, don’t think for one minute that I forgive his past (which I believe POTUS has), but you might consider looking at Cates’ thread and his reminders. 😉

        1. Would not surprise me, Wolf – seems to me – they are determined to serve their ‘overlord’ – the CCP – they obviously do not care about America – and there is definitely a demonic influence in their behavior and/or actions – they should be arrested for the traitors – they are.
