Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

Of course, I don't own the coin, thats owned by the ANA.

But what I do have is this curious photograph with a "interesting" inscription on the back, I obtained this quite by chance as it was being used as a bookmark in a 1962 copy of Yeomans redbook I picked up from a book dealers about 20 years ago, how it ended up there, in the north of the UK is anyones guess. (along with this photo were a bunch of photographic postcards with some popular coin varieties on them and a magazine clipping about the washington quarter from 1958).

Something a bit different
