MODERN PROOF? THEY'RE ALL THE SAME.

As the umpire said, "some are balls and some are strikes, but thet're nothin' till I call them." Why send them in for grading if they are all the same? Right. That?s what NGC and PCGS said. The reason dealers send modern proofs to be graded by the thousands is because NGC and PCGS will grade only a small percent 70. These are the ones that sell for big money.

HERE IS MY 1964 JFK PF 68. IT'S WORTH $27.50.

A PF 69 UC is worth $1940.   From an aesthetic point of view, if I have $1940 to buy proof half dollars I would get a nice Barber AND a nice Walking Liberty. From an investment point of view, who knows? But the Barber and the Walking Liberty seem safer. And would be a joy to own.   1964 PF68

THERE IS NO REGISTERED PRIORITY MAIL.

Priority mail, delivery conformation is much faster. I prefer Priority mail with delivery conformation. It can be insured and you can check delivery info on line. From Michigan to NGC is two days. If you have insurance on your collection look to see if it covers mailing and save the postal insurance cost.

2004 SMS MINT SET COINS?

Did the mint issue some SMS sets last year? I've been comparing my 2004 mint sets to the 2005. Two of the 2004 sets, but not the quarters, look like the satin finish to me. Anybody else see this?
