Jefferson's Westward Journey

Why is there no Jefferson Nickel Type set. Not being a Nickel collector, I have never paid much attention to the set up of Jefferson Nickel Registry Sets. Recently I got the bright idea to put together a type set for the Jefferson Nickel. With the new Westward Journey designs there are 7 unique examples. In addition to the traditional deisgn we have the Silver WWII variety, the 4 "Westward Journey" designs from 2004 and 2005, and the new "Return to Monticello" deisgn. Since I like to mix t

Did anyone know about this ?

Is it true? A friend of mine sent me this. The S.S. Central America...coins sold exclusively by Heritage, David Hall, Bowers and Merena and others, mostly PNG members/PCGS dealers. Over 5,000 coins that had been buried at sea for over 120 years encrusted with coral were treated with all kinds of chemicals to remove the encrustations, were miraculously restored to PCGS MS-65 at $15,000.00 a coin. The PCGS holders do not say SEA SALVAGED nor SALT WATER nor CORAL ENCRUSTED, no they have been gr

found out the hard way

when i sent gsa morgans in .... i sent them in the boxxes with certs. BIG mistake! now that i know how to send i will know,but not sure what they do with these types of things. being that ppl on ebay sell just the boxxes for 30 bucks or so i think they came out nicely in this deal. got paid for grading a coin already slabbed and 30$-60$ in gsa boxxes and certs. reason i sent in with boxxes is it took 4 weeks to get coupon, and as u kan see im inpatiant. im still happy they came back how

Why bother to buy?

What would you do? I bought 3 coins thru e-xxx and when they arrived I was quite happy with what I received. I sent them to NGC for crossover and in anticipation of what I think is true I said I think they might be one grade high , and I would be happy to have them crossover one grade lower. Low and behold all three were regected for "MARKS" which I can't seem to find. Is this a ploy by NGC to try and force the "other" graders out? And if so should I break them out of the present slabs and sen

Now I get it

The story of the ugly rouble I took the plunge and became a Society member for several reasons. The coins in my very small collection of Russian coins were scattered and in disarray, with some pretty valuable ones being stuffed in envelopes and subject to being lost. Then I learned from bad EBAY experiences. (Those high ratings don?t necessarily mean much.) And my long-time coin dealer on the East coast recommended NGC for any coin purchase. My main area of interest is Russian coins date

Quantity vs Quality/Rarity

Should I buy..... The question... Buy quantity or quality/rarity. I thought about this today as I was looking through some Morgans. There were several common nice dollars to be had....but I thought... should I buy 1881-S dollars, nice and brillant or 1882-S PL dollars, which I can give out as gifts to the neices and nephews... or should I wait and buy low mintage or higher graded slabbed coins? There are so many nice ones to buy....what to do? Help Thanks for reading

Re: Quantity vs Quality/Rarity

Key dates and CC's If you are going to buy common date Morgans, I would go for a high grade PL and DMPL. But your better off buying key dates and Carson City's, as they will always give you your best returns when selling them. As for buying only slabbed coins? That is the only way I will buy the key dates and the Carson City Morgans. But, that is just me and not every one will buy slabbed coins. The only reason I do for the key dates is that they sell faster when slabbed. Most major Auction Ho

Another Western Addition

Pike's Peak Or Bust.... ... or maybe the discovery of Pike's peak and it's discoverer. This is an ANACS graded so called dollar medal of Zebulon Pike. The front has a front bust view of him, and the reverse features Pike's Peak. I've included a pic of the obverse.

Re: Quantity vs Quality/Rarity

Nieces and nephews? That sounds like my rationalization. I just spent about $500 from a reputable dealer for a beautiful coin rejected by NGC for slabbing. So my take is buy what you alone like best. And always consider slabbing first. Have fun!

Look at this...

What kind of error Morgan is this? Went to the coin shop yesterday, May 2nd. As soon as I got there he pulls out a long box with 'new' stuff all priced out and ready for my preview. I pulled out a nice 1880-S BU Toned Morgan beauty. (I'll post that picture in another article.) Anyway, going through about 20 or 30 coins and from the side of me he slides a coin to me and says take a look. I look at the obverse.. a few neat marks. I turn it over and notice the goodies. Some sort of blockage on th

Re:Look at this...

well.... it looks like it was struck through grease. At the first picture I thought it was just wear but when I saw the second and third picture I knew it was just struck through grease or something like that, I have seen it on many coins this is one of the most of the design gone because of this type of "error" I have seen in awhile though. I dont think there is any vam#'s assigned to any grease struck through errors though so dont really know if it would carry a premium over a regular morgan
