GSA CC Mint bags

Post by jlojek00 » Fri Jul 06, 2018 1:54 am

Does anyone know whatever happened to the mint bags that the GSA CC dollars were stored in? Did any find their way into the numismatic community?

Todd Pollock has a few Carson City GSA bags for sale right now. Saw them at Long Beach. They're so sweet.

Someone forwarded me a letter a few weeks ago where the the GSA said the had yet to determine what to do with the bags. The letter was dated 12/13/77.

In reality there are some out there. There are some CCMint bags that appear to be GSA bags, and some are not. The GSA bags have writing on the back that appear to correspond with the year inside the bag and a number, likely the number of the date of bag.

I spent a grip of money having a few of mine framed. They are beyond cool. The are framed with a GSA coin correct for the bag based on the writing on the back.

No idea if the pics will work but will give it a shot.
