Rudolph the Red Nosed Dime
I have a 2000 S silver Proof Roosevelt dime that the face has turned a rich rust RED color and Roosevelt's nose is really red.
It is still in the original Mint proof case and came with a silver proof set. The raised areas (primarily the head) including the lettering has turned this Deep color while the cameo portion is 100% like normal. This seems strange to me.
The picture is a scan and has some trash on the scanner and on the plastic case that the coin is in.
they came in US Millennium Coinage and Currency Sets
they came in US Millennium Coinage and Currency Sets which had the silver eagle, the sacagawea dollar and the $1.00 bill from the year 2000 in the set. Hope this helps, here is a picture of the set from a auction on ebay

i to have a coin graded and slabed that is not regestering as anything.
it is a 2003 s$1 american heroes edition jessica lynch pcgs.
the number on it reads: 72318137
it is a graded silver eagle but it wont add to my collection regester.
if it is not going to go on i think they need to buy back coin.
New and popular Registry sets (maybe).
British gold coins are becomming more popular everyday. Most of the dates from 1902 through 1932 from the seven mints were considered bullion, now they are trading at more than 50% over melt especially mint state certified pieces. Would be nice to have date sets of Victoria, Edward VII, George V and Elizabeth II
Maybe throw in the two 20 franc Swiss sets and the 10 franc set.
Thanks CoinGuy, I thought there had to be more to it. I have worked on many digs in historicaly known places and have dug up many coins. I never stopped and thought about silver and salt water not getting along that good before I posted. Thanks again.
when i sent gsa morgans in ....
i sent them in the boxxes with certs. BIG mistake!
now that i know how to send i will know,but not sure what they do with these types of things. being that ppl on ebay sell just the boxxes for 30 bucks or so i think they came out nicely in this deal. got paid for grading a coin already slabbed and 30$-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
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
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.

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
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
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
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.
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
