The Coin Contains 90% Silver And 10% Copper

YOUR coins could be worth a lot of money, just like a dollar bill that sold online for nearly $3,000.

But you need to know what to look for in your coins.

1

The coin contains 90% silver and 10% copper

Some elements might relate to the specific date and mintmark, but where exactly to find them depends on the coin.

For others, you can find value in mistakes.

Rare pieces can be found in simple places in your home such as: B. in coin jars, piggy banks or anywhere where you can keep small change.

It’s also worth buying a coin roll from the bank as there are no downsides – any regular denomination coins can simply be deposited back into your bank account.

What Is The 1944 Lincoln Penny And What Makes It Worth $1.1 Million?
Rare Bug Dime Sells Online For $1,277 - How To Spot This Coin In Your Change

In fact, coin expert Eric Miller found a $1,000 Lincoln penny and five bug coins by trying these simple tricks.

This month, a dollar coin sold for a total of $2,905 after nine bids on eBay.

Here’s what to look for to possibly find one too.

How to recognize it

The dollar piece sold is part of the Morgan Silver Dollar Series.

In addition to silver, these coins contain 10% copper.

Above all, the series ran from 1878 to 1904, followed by two more in 1921 and 2021.

That means collectors might consider these antiques and you might fetch a lot more than the $1 face value.

The year engraved on the coin sold is 1883, which can be found on the obverse bottom center just below the image of Liberty.

Also, there is no mint mark on the coin – meaning it was minted in Philadelphia.

If there is a mint mark on a Morgan Dollar, it is on the reverse.

how much is it worth

Always remember that the value of your coins will likely vary based on grade and condition.

In average condition, the 1883 Morgan dollar is worth $31 according to the USA Coin Book.

The particular coin in the eBay listing is described by the seller as “rare” and “high quality”.

However, the exact note was not disclosed, but the seller claimed it was circulated.

What other dollar coins are valuable?

For other Morgan Dollars, look out for the 1893 date.

If it happens to have an S letter character standing for San Francisco – congratulations because you’ve just found the rarest in the series.

The 1893-S coin has a mintage of just 100,000.

In an auction that ended in May, one buyer paid almost $13,000 for a piece in circulation.

And then there’s the draped bust dollar dated 1795.

It could be worth $2,448 in average condition and up to $513,313 in an MS-65 grade.

Another dollar coin to watch out for is the 1872 Carson City (CC) piece.

Mintage is extremely low, with just over 3,000 of these coins minted.

The piece could be worth up to $109,541 in an MS-63 grade, or $3,316 on average.

To see if your spare change is worth something, you can search eBay for the full name, select the listing “sold” and then toggle the search to “highest value”.

This gives you an idea of ​​how much the coin might be worth, as your quarters, dimes, nickels and Lincoln pennies might also be valuable.

The CEO who developed Tesla’s electric scooters shares innovation tips

The Ceo Who Developed Tesla'S Electric Scooters Shares Innovation Tips

Horace Luke is not a fan of the word “no”.

“If I ask the first time [whether] I can do something and it’s a “no”, I’ll find another guy to ask. If the second guy says no, then I’ll do it,” the entrepreneur said.

“I’m just going to do it myself because I really believe in the idea.”

His ‘don’t ask third time’ philosophy took the 52-year-old far – he is the founder of Gogoro, a Taiwanese manufacturer of electric scooters and a battery exchange network.

Launched in 2011, the startup claims to have since built a network of more than 2,300 swap-and-go battery stations, powering 350,000 daily battery swaps for two-wheelers.

“By the end of this year, we will have more locations than gas stations in Taiwan,” Luke told CNBC Make It.

Its investors include Al Gore’s Generation Investment Management, Foxconn – one of Apple’s biggest suppliers – and Indonesian app GoTo.

Despite its success, Luke’s approach to urban mobility and sustainability has not always been well received.

“Not only was nobody working on such a topic, at the same time nobody believed in us…when we launched our flagship store, people came [and] asked, ‘Who will possess [this] battery when you go bankrupt?’”

The CEO added with a laugh, “That’s a really rude question to ask. But I think the user-friendliness and convenience of battery swapping has really won consumers’ hearts.”

I see innovation as an upward spiral and my daily job is to maintain this spiral.

Horace Luke

Gogoro Founder

Luke is no stranger to innovation – he worked at Microsoft, where he led product ideation and brand development for its major products, including the original Xbox and Windows XP.

Before founding Gogoro, he was also Chief Innovation Officer at smartphone maker HTC.

With over 15 years of experience under his belt, Luke has a number of tips for developing new products. CNBC Make It finds out what they are.

1. Listen to others

When it comes to innovation, it’s never your job and yours alone, Luke said.

“If you come into my office, you will find that my office is really noisy. Lots of people coming in and out…chatting and talking about things.”

The most important part of creating new products is actually using “your ears,” he added.

“It’s the ability to hear 1,000 ideas and choose them [that work]combine them and then bring people together to now culturally work in the same direction.”

You need to provide something that makes people smile [faces] when they use it, they will adopt it.

Horace Luke

Gogoro Founder

However, having good ideas isn’t enough – it’s the ability to execute on them that’s “really important”.

“The guy who says a car can fly, but he never flew the car – he’s just crazy. But the guy who flew the car, he’s a genius,” added Luke .

That’s why, beyond listening to his team’s ideas, he sees himself playing a huge role in rallying them to work towards the same goal of creating new products.

“I see innovation as an upward spiral and my daily job is to maintain this spiral.”

2. Think outside the box

One thing Luke would never do? Work on projects where “someone is able to say, ‘You mean, like this?’”

“Instantly this project is killed because I don’t want there to be an example out there. You have to come up with your own idea… think outside the box,” he added.

It was, he said, the approach that led to the creation of the original Xbox.

“That’s why the Xbox was born – it was a box that provided computing technology that was beyond what a game console could do,” said Luke.

“Instead of a device that plays games, what about a PC that entertains?”

3. Find the right product

Convincing consumers to go electric is a challenge. But Gogoro’s mission to provide a seamless vehicle charging experience paid off.

Its battery swap system allows drivers to swap batteries in seconds, unlike charging stations, which can take hours to charge electric vehicles.

“You need to provide something more convenient, with a better user experience so people can turn around. It’s not about price,” Luke said.

“No matter how cheap something is… nobody wants to use it. You need to provide something that makes people smile. [faces] when they use it, they will adopt it.”

The hilarious Britbox TV show everyone needs to watch

The Hilarious Britbox Tv Show Everyone Needs To Watch

A quick reminder: with streaming, you don’t have to discover a show the day it comes out. Finding a great show is equally rewarding whether it’s a year old or an hour old. The Cleaner came out in 2021, but I still feel like I would have to chase people down the streets and yell at them to watch every episode. It is so good.

The Cleaner is a British comedy starring Greg Davies as a crime scene cleaner whose name we barely learn. (It’s Paul Wickstead, but his name is “Wicky.”) Wicky is a giant (Davies himself is 6-foot-8, or just over 2 meters) and fearless. He’s not afraid to wipe blood and brains from coffee tables and counters. He speaks frankly and loudly to the odd variety of people he encounters on a daily basis.

Wicky doesn’t even seem disgusted by his job. He pulls up in his funky work van, dresses in a huge hazmat suit, and carries an array of cleaners and sprays. When a curious customer sprays one of the cleansers on his hand, Wicky calmly tells him that he uses it to melt flesh – before admitting he’s joking. But ha, man, stay away from that man’s chemicals.

Wicky is kind of a klutz. He collapses a book shelf, ruining a book autographed by Dylan Thomas when he splashes his cleaning fluid. (Don’t go easy on that good bucket of bleach.) He’s briefly kidnapped by a murderer who returns to the scene of the crime. He chases a pet cat he thought was a stray. Davies delivers all of these scenes with the perfect blend of slapstick, awkwardness, and inescapable charm.

The Cleaner is not what you might think of when you hear of a crime scene cleaner. The show isn’t about death horror, it’s about the charismatic and hilarious Wicky, goofing around from house to house with his cleaning sprays and protective gear. He could almost be a meter reader or a postman. Working the crime scene is just a way to put him in a different bizarre situation each episode.

But he knows his murders.

“You only need five stabs,” he complains when meeting this returning killer (played by a major star whose name I won’t reveal here). “Everything else is showboating.”

There is currently only one short season of six episodes, but good news! The show was recently renewed for a second season – plus a Christmas special. Um sure? Ho-ho-homicide?

“It was such a pleasure to bring Wicky and his bloody career to life and I’m beyond thrilled that we can do it again,” Davies said, according to Radio Times. “So thrilled that I intend not to mention how sweaty this hazmat suit is under the lights. Put it like that, we had to burn it. Either way, I’m still excited, thanks BBC.”

Here’s the catch as far as listening goes: I came across The Cleaner on BritBox, the streaming service specializing in British shows and movies. Yes, you must have a BritBox subscription to watch. I can’t find it on any other service. But BritBox has a seven-day free trial, and then it’s $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year.

It’s a shame that BritBox’s reach is so limited. I get it – people choose between a million streaming services, and something like Netflix, Hulu or Prime Video has way more options. But Britbox isn’t as limited as you might think. It is home to an excellent range of films, Britcoms and a frankly ridiculous amount of Doctor Who. And if you love Agatha Christie and the Royal Family, classics like Blackadder, Last of the Summer Wine, Downton Abbey and All Creatures Great and Small, you’ve come to the right place.

If you fancy trying out the seven days free, or even earning $7 for a month, BritBox is worth it just to meet Wicky and tackle some crime scene cleanup humor.

Tejashwi Yadav says Nitish Kumar ‘fearless’, BJP ‘vindictive’

Tejashwi Yadav Says Nitish Kumar 'Fearless', Bjp 'Vindictive'

Patna:

A day after being sworn in as Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar, Tejashwi Yadav today praised United’s Janata Dal chief for his ‘brave’ stance despite BJP’s ‘vindictive’ stance towards the opposition. In an exclusive interview with NDTV, Mr Yadav also said claims that his party cannot govern are “garbage”.

“The Mahagathbandhan (grand alliance) is the real government – the people’s government of Bihar. This is what people want – Nitish ji and Laluiit is gathbandhan,” he said.

Nitish Kumar’s “bold move” to get rid of the BJP, Tejashwi Yadav said, left the party “worried and bruised”.

“Our duty is to protest against the constitution. The people are on our side. We have to work for them now. If the BJP worked for the people, then they wouldn’t have needed central agencies like the CBI and the ED to stay relevant. The slap that the people of Bihar gave the BJP and the bold move by Nitish Kumar left them worried and bruised. They are vindictive people,” he said.

Tejashwi Yadav, 32, also said the new government would tackle unemployment and poverty as a priority. “Creating jobs is our priority… We will fulfill this commitment together,” he added.

Asked if the alliance will complete the term, Mr Tejashwi Yadav said: “We are socialists… We (Nitish Kumar and I) have traded allegations but we are one family. We can fight but we will be at the service of the people”.

Tejashwi Yadav, whose party was often attacked by the BJP over the crime rate when his father was chief minister, also accused the BJP of creating a false “perception in people’s minds”.

Jungle Raj it’s when people can’t say a word. Show me some data about Bihar in our time and then we can talk about crime in Bihar. If you analyze the data on which government was better, you will find that crime was rampant when the NDA was in power,” he said.

Rashtriya leader Janata Dal has also dismissed the BJP corruption charge against him. “I had no corruption allegations against me,” he said. Corruption was among the main reasons cited by Nitish Kumar when he returned to the BJP in 2017 after a two-year alliance with the RJD.

Nitish Kumar was sworn in as Bihar’s chief minister for the eighth time on Wednesday, the day after his split from the BJP, citing a range of reasons including his concerns that the BJP might try to make a Maharashtra in Bihar, that he had worked behind the scenes to dig the JD(U) from within.

The swearing-in ceremony was attended by Tejashwi and his wife Rajshri, former CM Rabri Devi and RJD leader Tej Pratap Yadav during the swearing-in ceremony at Raj Bhavan in Patna.

The Mahagathbandhan has a total of 164 Assembly members, the BJP has 77 MPs.
