Pierce a Loser Again

Franklin Pierce Dollar

From Coin Update News:
Franklin Pierce Presidential Dollar Rolls went on sale at the US Mint on May 20, 2010. In the debut period, sales of 23,960 of the Philadelphia Mint rolls and 24,160 of the Denver Mint rolls were recorded. These amounts are 2,048 and 1,261 behind the debut figures for the previously released rolls featuring Millard Fillmore, suggesting that collector's attention may have faded.


  1. Have you mentioned the bombardment of Greytown yet in your Pierce rumblings?
    BTW- I've enjoyed following your blog(s). I visited the Pierce grave/Manse last year. And thanks to your alert, I obtained the Pierce bobblehead via membership in the NH historical society.

  2. Catplace88,

    Thanks for the comment and congrats on being the owner of a Pierce bobblehead. I hope to make it to NH someday to visit the Manse and other Pierce sites.

    I had read a little about the Greytown bombardment, which led me to research the filibuster William Walker. I was going to write about him, but that project is languishing unfinished for the time being.
