Hello everyone, It's been a long time since I made a journal entry, but I'm back. I didn't stop adding to my collection, I just got lazy and stopped writing about it. I had to share this story though. Earlier this year, my wife and I had been talking about going to our local flea market for a while, and we finally had the chance to go back in May. We were looking for old stuff that we could use in the new house we are about to start building. It was a perfect day to go picking, not too hot,
Hello everyone, I wanted to share the results of the batch of coins that I submitted at the FUN show a few weeks ago. It only took 18 days for NGC to grade them and get them back to me. That's pretty good for the volume of coins they received at the show! I submitted 9 Libertads, and 4 of them came back a perfect 70, so I am quite pleased.

I was able to go to the FUN show this past Friday (the 10th), and it was probably the best time I’ve had at the show since I’ve been going.

I was able to pick up a 2019 Libertad 5 piece silver proof set for a great price, along with 3 other coins that I needed for my collection. The gold panning people wer

About two months ago the 2019 Antiqued silver Libertads were released, and they sold out without me even knowing about the release until it was too late. So naturally I was kicking myself for not being on top of things, and after scouring the interwebs I couldn't find anything anywhere.
Hello everyone, I have been an NGC member for a few years now, and a lurker on the chat boards. I have never posted on there, or created a journal, but I wanted to create a journal to document my progress. I recently realized that I had made a tremendous amount of progress this year on my collection of Mexican Libertads. Like a lot of people, when I first stated collecting I didn't really have a focus. I just bought a lot of random "junk", like silver bars and rounds, silver bullion coins fr
