RE: closed society..and paid email only

your both right and both wrong As I enter this int0o my journal after a long and hot day at work I don't know whether to shake my head and laugh or vent. Surely this journal sight is not the place for free advertising and promoting an agenda.I clicked on the forum page that was in "ARCHS'" entry and was highly offended at his wording..quote" accepting only paid e-mail log ins is a way for us to keep out all the agenda promoting riff raff" I have had my same email for over a dozen years and whe

Is the grass greener....

When (if) you get to the other side?? I was going to ramble on about the member of this society who was recently suspended, and the several people who promote his coin trading sight, and that I was a founding member of that sight, only to leave because the founder is the "King of Censor" (in my humble opinion), but haven't we all had enough of that?? So... I wont say any of that... (snicker) I got back my latest submission from NGC and I had TWO bodybags...aarrggh... both were quarters from

Closed society? Nope, it's open to all who....Barbed wire? nothing bad about that number one...all you closed society types need to revisit the definition of a society...a group of people with a common purpose who band together, make rules to govern their group and promise to live by those rules. those that are not willing to abide by the rules of the society are no longer members of that group and are normally called criminals. IF YOU WANT TO BELONG, THEN FOLLOW THE RULES. OTHERWISE WE H

Well, that's it for me...I'm done

I thought that we had settled this buy/sell issue...but with 150+ views on two for sale entries (pure for sale ads)...I guess that this has turned into an advertising venue and if that was what I personally wanted I would join the boards...been nice knowing most of you...and good luck and good night

Anything to help fellow collectors..but there are limits

Some people appreciate the occasional for-sale notice...but I can see your point. But I can certainly see your point. I mean Im not sure I would head for the exit after two such posts.. but excessive spamming of the journal area would get annoying. I for one, found the PF70 Quarter post beneficial as I am currently working to complete my registry set. There are, however, other venues which are more appropriate for selling and/or trading coins. http://tradingslabs.com for example, might b

UNDISCOVERED 1917-S Buffalo Nickel Variety? !!! Third Ribbon across neck!!

who do I call..how do I get it listed as a recognised variety? Just got my 1917-S in the mail today for my year set and as I studied my new acquisition to my amazement I found some odd things about it.Most notably was a raised area which looks like a ribbon across the neck.I have had a few clashed-die coins from collecting 3 cent nickels and this is not that...neither is it a die-break..there are no cracks and misplaced metal, this is a well developed RAISED ribbon.Any ideas on whom I should c

1851 HALF DIME WITH DATE ON REVERSE

I can see "1851" coming and going!!! This afternoon, I received a new coin in the mail. Upon closer examination, I recognized it as V-1a, an interesting variety for its date placement "touching and slightly overlapping the rocks". This variety is known to have die clashing, and when I checked for this, I saw a form of clashing like no other in my collection. The date had beeen imbedded quite strongly on the reverse. Certainly not rare, but quite an interesting "impression"!

bought off more than i

planned to chew.... i was bidding on an auction site and noticed it was slow to process bids. Anyway i bid on a few coins that i wouldn't normally have bid on because i didn't think i had won and well guess what? I am the happy winner of all auctions i bid on. It's fine though because they are duplicate dates and well i have one grandaughter and my youngest daughter is also a collector so it works out nicely. I found a way to get them started early. Always give them some coins to play wit

Questionable authenticity

What gives now? In a conversation with my good coin dealer recently, he advised me to only buy slabbed coins and to have coins in my collection slabbed. I purchased another XF 40 platinum ruble from him recently. This is a three generation business that has been operating for over 40 years.So I took his advice and sent in four rubles purchased from him up to 18 years ago, before slabbing was a big deal. Each is supposed to be about a third ounce of platinum.What should have been fast turn ar

THANK YOU ERROR BUFFS FOR YOUR HELP!

I think Kirkpatrick is correct that it is a FOLD OVER/ROLL OVER error. He says this happens when an extra piece of metal is left over after the blanking process and gets rolled onto the planchette. I think he is right because there is an extra piece of metal on the coin. Thanks all for the response. 1854 REV 2

Questions need to be asked on the Chat Boards!

What does cleaning look like? What is the condition of this coin? How much is this green penny worth? I feel that questions about coins should be asked on the Chat Boards. The first reason is there are many more collectors monitoring the posts. Also this is supposed to be a "Journal" not Coin Collecting 101!!!

Re: Questions

Respectfully, I disagree.... Personally, I never visit the chat boards. Like any other chat room, they tend to be full of clutter and mindless prattle and very seldom have anything to do with coins. Most all of the collectors will visit this home page, so the chances are somebody, somebody who doesnt mind answering questions, will see it and respond. This is like a phone call, you dont HAVE to answer... you dont even have to read the post. There are many collectors who enjoy sharing the

re: questions also

some of us unlucky collectors spend our money on collecting and cannot just go out and "buy" a email account to ask questions with. to join the "chat" it clearly says you may not use "free" emails such as yahoo and such. wich is kind of inconsiderate to those who have used yahoo and such for many many yrs. i pay yearly to join in groups such as collectors soc. and such, i have learned many new things about collecting from using the "journals" and if you think about it "journals" are used
