GOOD NEWS .....OR BAD?

AS THE PRICE OF SILVER AND GOLD CONTINUES ON THE INCREASE, HOW LONG BEFORE COINS START DISSAPPEARING FOR THERE MELT VALUE??? Now, I know that collectors are not going to have their high end coins melted down. But what about those who have a hoard of coins stashed away that were collected in a jar over the years. Or those who were handed down a cigar box of coins and have no idea that a rare/collectable coin may be included. I really get concerned when metal prices skyrocket. I just know that f

New Signature Set

21st Century Type Coins! OK, so the set is a little boring right now, I mean it only comprises six years worth of coinage. But if there can be 19th century and 20th century type sets why not start a 21st century set? I feel almost guilty leaving out the 1999 state quarters. My real dilemma is, should I include the 1st Lady gold coins when the presidential dollar coin series begins? Any thoughts on that?

Ike set complete

Ranked number 6 I finally have completed my Eisenhower Proof Registry Set. All coins in the set are PF69uc. While the set is currently ranked number 6, I will try to upgrade. This will be hard as I will need PF69uc* (Star) or a PF70. Those 70's are pretty spendy items. I wonder if I have any old, rich relatives that could leave me money in their will?? Just a thought. I have attached a link to my Ike's http://www.collectors-society.com/registry/coins/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=167

Additions to my Wild West Set

What I really want for Christmas is... not my 2 front teeth. However, I would really like to be able to add graded currency to my Wild, Wild West set. I can think of 2 examples right off, one being the Indian Chief large size $5 silver certificate. The other is a large size $10 Legal Tender note that features a bison flanked by Lewis & Clark. Both of these notes would be such a great addition to my set. I certainly hope someone at NGC sees this journal entry and helps me out. I can only wi

And the hunt continues

Key date Morgan Dollar - waiting for me Went to my local dealer the other day. He was all smiles. Business is good for him. We chatted for a moment and then said, "I got something to show you." He came back with a NGC Slabbed 1894 S Morgan MS62 with some nice toning. I did not even ask how much. I said to him, "I'll take it." He put it away for me and I am paying it off. I should have it by the end of April. With silver climbing higher and higher I was almost tempted to empty his cases of a

Grading Frustrated Today

Got back 5 PQ+ coins from NGC today that I sent in for upgrades and nothing...Trying to upgrade a set but my coins are nicer than the higher graded coins I see at auction!!! I get a bit frustrated at times when I look to upgrade a 64 to a 65 or a 63 to a 64 or even a 66FB to a 67FB and find that my coins are superior in strike, luster and cleanness.I recently sent 5 coins away for an upgrade/{grade correction!!} and got them all back with the packing slip I sent them with,the only difference w

Addiction Relapse

I had my addiction under control until recently, now my Liberty Gold Half Eagle collection has swelled to 20 examples. I have added some nice Liberty Half Eagles. This set has become my primary set of interest at this time. There are lots of coins in this set (over 200), many that I probably will have no chance of owning. But I am looking to keep getting the rarest ones I can afford. Gold is a good place to be right now! :^) 1886sLiber

"Poor Man's Insanity" 100%

What Next? The acquisition of an 1895-S Morgan in XF40 completes my registry set of Morgan Dollars. Currently, the lowest ranked 100% set of Morgans at #36. This number is not too bad considering the fact that Morgan Dollars are the #1 collected set at over 550 registered. I?m in somewhat of a quandary as to my next numismatic adventure. If this set remains untouched, I know that this ranking will only slip further down the list as time passes. I don?t have the funds to ever climb

Re: "Poor Man's Insanity"

Need to Upgrade! MWit, has a great looking set! However, you have two sets just below you, that will be passing you soon! You need to upgrade where you can. One of my sets of Morgans was getting ready for the TOP 100, but has been pushed way back, I'can't focus like you. You have done a great job THANKS!

RE: Poor Man's Insanity

I have wondered if Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday or some other person carried one of my coins around! First, a thank you to MWit for the kind words. I'm really flattered that someone else thinks my Wild, Wild West Signature set is a neat idea. And I promise to get some more images for you, if you can just bear with me for a few more days. And I do understand your dilemma on the Morgan Dollar registry set. I'm doing one also, and I really don't know how I can afford some of the rarities. I realize

!!!!BENJAMIN FRANKLIN $ !!!!!

There is a different die variety. I have received my B. Franklin Coins from the mint. On 04-13-06 I got my first shipment of the B.Franklin $ in Unc. & PROOF.On 04-14 I received my second order of the 2 PROOFS and while looking thru my 30 power microscope I noticed a difference in the letters above B.Franklins Head. Some of the letters where in MIrror type and some where frosted letters. FRANKL were in mirror shiny condition. IN letters were in semi mirror shape. the TERCE were in frosted

Re: PROOF 69 OR PROOF 70 ??????

Oh MAN! thats horrible! That is horrible to have something like that happen and I wish I knew what the answer was because thats a 300.00 difference in value with just the 1 point. I hope you either got a GREAT Deal on the coin or they rule that the registry was just entered wrong and its a mistake on that part (which I have defnately heard of before) There has been a few instances where the information was entered incorrectly into the registry so I hope that is the case in your instance

Agreeing With The Coin Guy

Morgans, Morgans everywhere I have found out the hard way, and I agree with The Coin Guy's journal that we can't collect everything. So I'm sticking with my Morgan dollars, at least until I get to the ones over $5000. I'm gonna try getting more images on here, as soon as I get better with my digital cam. Also trying to keep working on my Wild Wild West Signature set. I'm enjoying it as much as my Morgans.
