proof gold buffalo's and supply demand

price is right but i wouldn't worry anyway some of the flops as far as mint marketing of coins have turned into right pricey stuff in the real world. My real guess is it's a good hedge on inflation to have some of these and it would be smart to have a few for collector appeal. Afterall it is a beautiful coin.

like the bank of hamburg obsolete banknotes it follows right along your southern railroad theme also as it was the last leg of the original train route in the United States. The route ran from Charleston SC thru Columbia SC and ended in Hamburg SC which was just across the Savannah River from Augusta GA.

Received Coins from NGC..with a PF70UCAM

got back the 15 coins I sent away for my signature sets.. I have found that I really do enjoy collecting my signature set coins even more than working on my registry sets.My High Seas signature set in the thematic and topical section has truly become a hobby.It requires more time also than just checking auctions and my budget to see if I can squeeze them in.I buy beautiful coins with sailing ship themes, {often from as many countries/continents, metals, shapes and historical periods as I can.

1971-S Quarter Pop reports PGCS

Just a quick question Can someone who is a member of PCGS tell me what the pop report is for the 1971-S Proof Quarter in Ultra Cameo (or is it deep cameo with them?). I've gone back to 1952 (with the "superbird") on NGC and so far the 1971 quarter has 6 population in Ultra Cameo (4) 68 (2) 69). Of course after 1971, the numbers reverse for low number on the proof to high (er) numbers for the Ultra Cameo. How many 1971-S quarters has PCGS graded in Ultra?

Proof Gold Buffalo

Is it all Hype? I've seen the adds in Coin World about the Gold Buffalo Dollar. But I haven't seen any adds advertising sales. Before other new issues are released there are adds promoting sales at a premium over the mint. Normally stating Pre-release or mint fresh. How do we find out how sales are going. Will the mint reach it's goal of 300,000 or is demand not enough. Can sales continue after the end of the year or do they stop and any extra coins be melted and recoined next year? I love m

Part IV-Return to Collecting

Submission Obsession Admission Yep, I've got submission fever! Had I been asked even a few months ago whether I had any coins to submit to the grading services, the answer would have been "Maybe a couple that seem undergraded." That was before I noticed what was happening with US proof coinage from the 50s and early 60s. Now that I've dismantled a couple hundred proof sets from that era, the answer is "boxes full"! I had never thought of myself as a collector of proof sets-rather, I accumulate

Proud and thankful I am proud to be an American! In this country we have the freedom to do and go where we want. I am thankful that I am able to freely express myself by collecting beautiful U.S Silver and Gold coins.

All I can say is - THANK YOU to all who have served and who are still serving this great country, United States of America. Thank you for

How do you find the numbers

I have even e-mailed the mint. How many Proof Clad and Proof Silver States Quarters were actually minted and sold for each year. It is easy to tell how many have been graded, but knowing that probably leaves a huge number out there to appear one day and really melt down the now seemingly huge prices for coins that are not even 10 years old. I have PF70's in Clad and Silver, even both Delawares, but how do people justify these big prices. I started collecting these coins for my children, t

Re: How do you find the numbers?

Redbook mintage figures, as well as NGC online census would be a start... Depending on what kind of mintage figures you're looking for, The Redbook guide to United States Coins is a great start. They publish all of the mintages of most of the coins minted by the United States. I'm sure if you found a copy, you could find out the mintages. NGC Census provides a reference as to how many coins were graded in a particular grade, and of a particular type. As far as how many products of a certain ty

New to NCG....

Aquired some interesting coins yesterday! Unfortunately they're NOT graded by NCG so I can't put them in my set! Also aquired a HOT-Lips Morgan, but its in well, "not so good condition". It would probably cost more to send it in than what is worth. But its the IDEA that I own one! The coins I picked up yesterday were a 1912-S Lib Nickel F-12, and an 1837 Matron Head Large Cent MS61!!!! Got both of them at less than 200!!! THought about having them regraded by PCGS or NGC but they're alrea

2006 Silver Eagle error REVERSE STRUCK THRU

Anybody else have one? Now that 2006 is half way over, has anyone else heard or seen of the 2006 Silver Eagle errors? I got mine from NGC themselves when I renewed my membership! I thought it was a misgrade until I sent it back for review, and then it came back as an error. Anybody else? eagleminte

Upgrading Large Cents

Large Cents on the Rise I have been trying to weed out all type coins with a grade less than XF so I upgraded my Chain Cent to an XF40 and my Wreath to an AU58. The latter is one of the first struck evidenced by its ultra-high relief.

"Just a Big Kid"

sometimes a winning bid or favorable grade on a submission can bring it all back This morning{and I admit that I am not a morning person} I checked my email and visited this sight to see how my submissions were moving along. My morning and whole days' outlook improved immediately..it read "Finalized, Imaged, Shipped". With only a moment's hesitation.....should I wait until they arrive to find out the grades??...nah, click and ...woohoo!!The first thing I notice is that they have all been grad

Walked on the Kalamar Nykel..ship from reverse of 1936 Delaware Commem on Saturday

Here in Maryland we have a long great history in both numismatics{ever heard of a guy named Eliasburg?}and ship/sailing.On saturday I went to the annual "Tall Ship Festival" up the road in Annapolis and was delighted to find that along with the Schooner Sultana..Delawares Kalamar Nykel...the ship depicted on the reverse of the Deleware 1936 Commemorative Half..was also docked there. To make things even better we were all
