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

questions

Teaser? I was trying to help! You will get more answers on the chat boards than here!!! If anyone thinks that all chat boards are mindless they haven't tried NGC's example! E-mail accounts are FREE! Well I have never paid for one that is. As some suggested I will avoid looking at this place forevermore!!!

cleaning...what it looks like?

i am way to new to notice the imperfections... that appeir when a coin is cleaned. i know only 1 thing that if they use a rough item to clean it will show extra "hair bunches" like if you use a brillo pad on a pan. but what am i looking for if it has been dipped and other forms of cleaning. i have many coin books but none that explain or picture a cleaned coin. this is a big issue only on the full sets i have ae: peace dollar and morgans. is there a good book with photos and close ups on wh

1917 S Lincoln Cent is in rough shape....

Take a look and advise me please...is it worth anything in.. its present condition, can it be salvaged/restored? The two darker pictures show the actual color of the coin, the bleached out pictures are to help you see the coins condition. There is a shalac type substance on the upper obverse and some specks of corrosion as well. The shiney check, jar line and shoulder is a scuff. Any help will be appreciated... Thanks STeve 1917 S Pen

NGC Turnaround time

Getting Faster Yes I too have noticed that my last 2 submissions currently at NGC have gone through alot quicker than previous orders. which makes me extreemely happy. Especially since I have 2 orders at PCGS that have been there for 2 months now and everytime I call all I get is arrogance and the statement next time use the regular service for $30.00 per coin for 15 day turnaround. Usually I reply why would I do that when NGC can do it for 1/2 the price in 12 to 15 days. I don't think
