Jess Maytubby has Unusual Coin Supply
J. D. Maytubby, assistant cashier of the First State Bank has in his possession an unusual assortment of coins of the United States as well as some foreign countries.
One of his prize possessions is a $5 bill of the series of 1883 which in comparison to the smaller currency of today has the appearance of a bed-sheet to a pocket handkerchief. On its face appears the likeness of Grant and Sheridan and bears the signature of J. Fount Furlong as Registrar of the Treasury and D. H. Morgan as Treasurer of the United States. The bill is well preserved, but has seen much use.
In his coin collection his oldest one is a half dollar coined in 1827, with inscription around the edges, with a dime coined in 1832 running it a close second. Others in his collection include: a quarter coined in 1842, three five-cent pieces coined in 1867, 1868, and 1871, and a dime coined in 1867. All of these coins are worth above par with the premium differing the ages of the coins.
His foreign coins include Danish, Portuguese, Canadian, Japanese, French and Belgian coins of various values.
Altogether it is quite interesting collection and is quite intriguing to examine and ascertain the value of these coins.
If you have any coins of value or old coins bring them in and if you do not know the value of them, we will ascertain what they are worth for you.
