If only the attic was a great place to store coins....
Considering that the attached coin was found in an attic 3 years ago, it's got great details and slight cameo on the obverse. This coin will turn 40 in a few days. Goes to show, along with the previous post, how much better a preserved coin looks.

Boxing Day, if I remember correctly, is celebrated the day after Christmas. Also, if I remember correctly, it is when the master of the house and the servants trade places for a day. Unfortunately for me, I happen to be both master and servant, so I guess that means tomorrow I will have a split personality. I have a beautiful Australian half dollar from 1966. It is a raw coin but beautiful nonetheless. I hope you like the picture.
Recenly I received couple of coins back from grading, and I would like to resubmit some back for regrading for possible higher grade. Because in my opinion the coin could possibly upgrade. I like to get some opinions for my 1894 O Morgan.

Kennedy Half PF 68 Ultra Cameo
Well, I FINALLY got my 23 coins back, and was please to find that one of the five 1971 Kennedy Halves was graded a PF 68 Ultra Cameo! Yea for me! But wait! There's more! I also had 3 graded with stars (*) two graded at 68, and one at 69! and, as a small bonus, I also had a PF 69 Cameo Lincoln cent! Time to exhale..............
That's a great story......
I like to buy morgans, graded, ungraded, circulated until the rim is gone, cleaned, rim dings and I even have one thats bent.
The fact is that I just love having them, looking at them and showing them to people.
It's a lot of fun to give a cleaned 1889-o to someone who really isn't in to coins. You get to see that spark that got you started into this. I buy silver eagles in holders for the kids around this time of year. Not an expensive gift but one that in so
I am always reading how those shows on the Home Shopping channels are a rip-off and that they are no good for the hobby. I hate to say it, but if it wasn?t for that channel, I probably wouldn?t be hooked on the hobby today.

It's not on the coin, its in the package...
Ok, I like finding a good die crack here and there. So, I get out my 2005 Legacy set just to check the O! The Joy! nickel. I struck out there, so I start to look at the obverses. I see this shiny line across Jefferson's forehead. Maybe paper thin, but there is something there. I'm thinking, "what a crack!" I twist and turn the coin under different lights.
Turns out I got a piece of hair from one of the US Mint workers going right down Thomas
Absolute exquisite coin pendant. This has a wreath on the back and the number 5 is I think what might be called slanted. It has a slope like shape on 5.
I love to wear this every now and then. One of patients gave it to me as a gift. I have kept this a long time it in a dry area and it has kept its gold tint. I never see anyone wearing this nice coin.12-23-2005
Should NGC change the Registry Awards Criteria?
I am one of those who has some 100% PCGS sets in the NGC Registry. Even though I agree that I should have some NGC coins in the set, according to NGC, it is not necessary for me to have any. I am looking for some NGC coin upgrades but those available will be few and far between. I started with PCGS and I have been quite pleased. From all the articles I have read over the last several months, I have come to the conclusion that, if NGC is more cons
My thoughts on the current topic of solely PCGS sets being listed.
When I first started collecting coins someone said to me to buy only NGC or PCGS graded coins. That piece of advice has served me well over the years. I know some people like only one or the other company exclusively. I think they both do a fine job but can't understand why PCGS coins sell at higher premiums than does NGC's. Are PCGS graded coins better coins? Are PCGS grading standards higher? If they are than why is it that N
This Marquee is not longer at this casino. They have since changed this to another casino. This is the Cowboy Marquee that stood out of the casino. I recieved a few of these about 15-20yrs ago, when I got lucky.
Encased and never been opened. Beautiful and Decorative. .999 silver. Reverse has race cars, horses and cowboys in nice detail.
Recieved playing $1.00 slot machine, when lucky. Racing at the Salt Lake Flats. History memory breaking speed records. I do belive the record breaker engine was made by Harley Davidson. Sports car record breakers. Collection for cars and race cars. Makes a beautiful coin. Encased in holder for 15-20 yrs
Reverse with the Salt Flats and the Desert Scene. Old time record breaker race car. Showing power engine thrust. .999 silver.
One of the few I have collected when the State line casino existed in Wendover, Nevada. .999 silver
This is another rare coin I recieved playing the $1.00 slot machines. I have had these at least 15-20 yrs. This reverse of this coin is beautiful Western Cowboy Roundup time. Roping steer.
