The Gold and Silver Mine – A half-dollar collection with a twist The Gold and Silver Mine – A half-dollar collection with a twist If you would like to collect something more challenging than the run-of-the-mill cents, nickels (five-cent coins) and dimes, and one that will not break your budget, I have a suggestion. My choice would be Capped Bust Half Dollars, those coins minted from 1807 until 1839. These are very attractive coins, generally can be found in high grade, and many sell for under $100 each.

The Bust Half Dollar was the highest denomination silver coin minted during their time, and generally were used in bag quantity for bank-to-bank transfers of cash.

Letter: Mayor reaches out to Brigantine’s unemployed Letter: Mayor reaches out to Brigantine’s unemployed To the editor:

I believe a big “Thank You” is in order to Mayor Phil Guenther for, as always, showing his concern for the hundreds of Brigantine residents who will soon be unemployed.

On Monday, Aug. 13 Mayor Phil Guenther invited casino workers to a town meeting held at the Brigantine Community Center. The meeting was a gesture of goodwill and support for the soon-to-be-unemployed workers, as three Atlantic City casinos (Showboat Hotel and Casino, Revel Hotel and Casino, and Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino) are slated to close during the coming weeks.
