Post your favorite coin purchase in 2015 that cost $50 or less

One of the things I really like about coin collecting is that you can do it for not much cost. Coin collecting totally spans the spectrum of coin values, from ultra rarities that cost millions of dollars, to coins you can pull out of pocket change for face value. Post your favorite coin purchase of 2015 that cost you $50 or less. Here's mine, it cost me $10.

1932 Washington Quarter- found in "junk silver" bin at a pawn shop. Paid $3.50!


Nice toning on obverse, very slight on reverse and hard to see in photo. My guess on raw grade at MS64. Maybe a bit higher?

Fun thread. Thanks for reminding us that it doesn't take a lot to have fun in this hobby!


I had a few nice sub $50 purchases this year but the below stands out the most. It's a lead die trial for a fantasy Confederate cent. I like the detail and workmanship which stands out from other similar pieces.


It was sold with a set of Whitehead & Hoag Confederate lead die trails with the same look. While the other pieces went for $200-300 each, this one went for just about $10.
