Re: Heart aches of coin collecting
Well my friends here at the collectors society I have finally found the 1940 proof set from Iceland that I was talking about last April when I wrote a journal entry about NGC grading a complete set of 1940 proof coins from Iceland and how I lost the bid on a seemlier set that was being auctioned off in Australia in July of 09 that sold for $2600.00 AUD and only to see that very same set being sold by Strand Coins (Who won the auction) in Australia for 15,000.00 dollars AUD. And then seeing that NGC graded a 1940 set from Iceland.....Boy did that make me depressed. Well that very same set that NGC graded came up for auction at Stacks last month and I won. Well to say the least I was so happy that it made me nerves because I was afraid that the internet bidding made a mistake because all the bids was not in yet because of delays....Well any why I got my invoice,,, payed for the set and became a very very happy camper once again. When I got the set from the auction house I see that the coins has a thin layer of film on them so off to NCS they go and to have them placed in individual holders
