Stretching Your Shopping Budget With Surplus Stores

When you're looking to get great products and even better prices, one of the things I've learned is how to shop surplus stores. When you shop a surplus store, you can buy overstock items from your favorite name brands at a fraction of the price. After shopping stores like this for many years, I've learned how to maximize my money when I'm looking at overstock like this. I created this site to help others learn how to save money on their shopping adventures as well.

4 Coins To Be On The Lookout For

If you're a neophyte coin collector, you might be having some difficulty deciding which coins for which you should be on the lookout. Luckily, you have this brief guide to help you out. The coins listed are uncommon enough to make them valuable additions to your collection.

1913 Liberty Head Nickel

Liberty Head Nickels were in print between the years of 1883 and 1912. They earned their namesake due to the fact that the reverse side features a prominent silhouette of the Goddess Liberty. Liberty Head Nickels were printed in relatively large numbers before being replaced by the Buffalo Nickel, but there are at least five known Liberty Head pieces that were printed with the year 1913 on their reverse side. One of these pieces became the first known coin to fetch over $1,000,000 on the collector's market.

2007 Presidential Dollar Coin

Starting in 2007, the U.S. Mint began pressing dollar coins that prominently featured an illustration of a president. Many of these early pressings, however, contain numerous spelling errors, or are sometimes missing letters altogether. The George Washington misprints are the most common among these coins, but other do exist.

2004 Wisconsin State Quarter

In the early 2000s, the U.S. Mint began pressing quarters with illustrations featuring state themes on the backside. In 2004, the Wisconsin state quarter was pressed, featuring a cow, a log of cheese, and most notably, an ear of corn encased in a leaf. Some of these pressings featured an elongated version of the leaf, sometimes referred to as the "extra leaf". This mispress will command you significantly more than the 25 cents that a normal quarter will afford you.

"In God We Rust"

Much like the Wisconsin state quarter, this quarter also belonged to the line of state themed quarters that were released. In 2005, Kansas received its state quarter. Although the condition that created the Wisconsin state quarter was most likely due to the use of prototype plates during the pressing and then having those coins erroneously sent out into public, this quarter exists due to a simple mispress or cleaning mistake. On the face side of the coin, the text "In God We Trust" is printed; however, on these Kansas quarters, the T is missing altogether.

Be on the lookout for these coins. Although not all of them will command $1,000,000 like the Liberty Head Nickel, they all make for great addition to a collection. Check it out -- there's a lot more information online for those interested in coin collecting.
