I just need one more to tie...
I have been VERY slowly concentrating on one proof set in the registry...the 1971. I have made a few purchases throughout the years, some of which got me a very verbal tongue lashing (but it was worth it!). More than 5 years ago, I did see the coin that my collection has been lacking, the 1971 PF 69 Ultra Cam Lincoln cent, and it was with Heritage auction, and bidding was @ $600. I knew from experience from my other purchases, that this one may make me a bachelor. You know that song "I'm gonna miss her" by Brad Paisley? ...only I didn't go fishing, and I didn't buy the coin. I've been doing some sporadic searching every then and now, and see the coin is commanding a little more than $600 now, especially if it is PCGS.
So, with a heavy heart, but hope still lingers, that I may actually come into a tidy sum in said amount, and as my prayers may have it, one come up for sale or trade in around said amount. Like I said...hope still lingers.
Thank you for reading. Happy Easter to all who believe!
