  1. Hello, Can you add the 2020 W V75 Silver Eagle $1 75th Anniversary of End of World War II to Multi Denominational (Walkers and Silver Eagles) as well as anywhere else that would be appropriate? Thank You !
  2. Hello All ! I have a question that I hope that I can receive some guidance on. I am looking to purchase a slabbed VAM/Variety Morgan Dollar but, unlike "standard" or "non VAM/Variety" graded Morgans (which I can either look up on greysheet or on the PCGS or NGC websites price guides for a rough estimate of what I should be expecting to pay for such a coin), I'm flying blind on what is a reasonable price I should pay for this Morgan Silver Dollar VAM. Where would you recommend me going (on the internet preferably) to find out what is reasonable/ballpark for what I should be paying for this particular VAM on this Morgan? The seller is asking for much more than the typical year/mintmark for this Morgan. Thank you, in advance, for your help !
  3. Under United States, Multi-Denominational, Walking Liberty Design Set (Half Dollars & Silver Eagles,) 1916-Date, Circulation Issue/Mint State, can you add a slot for the 2020 W Burnished American Silver Eagle? Thank You !
  4. Hi Ali, I'm not sure that you answered my question. It's probably my fault. Let me try again. 1) My goal was to start a new "Custom Set" in the Registry referencing the instructions on the website ( reference "For collectors who assemble sets in their own unique ways, custom sets are ideal. Custom sets let you define the theme and choose which coins are eligible. NGC and PCGS-certified coins as well as raw coins are eligible for NGC Registry custom sets." and "....some collectors choose to assemble sets in unique ways, as personal expressions of what they find fascinating about collecting. Custom Sets allow collectors to post sets of any type." 2) With that goal in mind, I created (on February 15, 2020) a Custom Set entitled "Rarity versus Scarcity? What is the difference, if any? Fine Examples of Rare and Scarce Coins" and wrote my collecting goals for this custom set. 3) I just found this set created on February 15, 2020, but am now unaware as to how to add NGC coins (already scanned and added to my competitive coins) and PCGS coins (awaiting approval) and Transfer images of these coins to this newly created custom set. 4) Can you advise me how to go about this? Thank You
  5. Hello, In Mid February 2020, I started a custom set by giving it a title and starting/finishing an introduction to this custom set with the goal being to add coins to the set at a later date. Now that I am ready to add a coin to this already created set and have scanned that coin using my iPhone, and trying to add that coin to this custom set, I cannot find that custom set created back in February in which to add that coin. Can you advise me as to how to find that set so I may add this coin? I gave a lot of thought to that introduction and hope that I do not have to start over. Thank you, in advance, for your help.
  6. I'm new to the world of pennies and am looking to purchase a 1909-S VDB penny in MS. But I see that this penny comes with further classifications of BN (brown?) and RB (red brown?) ( and maybe more?). My question is, which classification is more desirable and/or worth more -- the BN or RB? Thank you in advance for your help.
  7. With on 30,000 minted, I think it had the potential to appreciate in value as the 1995-W ASE did. I'm curious as to what the audience thinks?
  8. Excellent video !! If you have a mailing list of videos, please add me !!
  9. This is my first Journal Post, so please bear with me. I'm in a quandary I purchased a rare 1893-O Morgan in AU53 from one dealer's website and the pictures were great and the price reasonable.. I cannot afford anything over a AU53. Once I received this AU53 Morgan it did have pretty good eye appeal without magnification. It is more "white" when looking at it with my bare eye. However, under 7x magnification is EXTENSIVELY bagmarked which takes away from its eye appeal in my opinion. Now, along my internet travels, along comes a 1893-O Morgan from another dealer's internet site that is an AU50 but with a CAC sticker at a $55 discount to what I paid for the AU53. The picture is just "OK" with the coin showing some black rub and some distracting marks, but now I know now that an internet picture can be made to look anyway the photographer wants it to look. So, this AU50 is CAC-stickered but, in my opinion from the picture, the eye appeal isn’t as nice with the black rub and all. Now the quandary. I can still return the AU53 with no financial penalty so I don't know what to do. Does a CAC sticker tell the buyer that much or add that much value if/when I decide to sell? Do collectors out there buy for eye appeal or potential resale value down the line? Should I just hold out until I can afford a Mint State 1893-O? if you can't tell already, I'm new to coin collecting, so any guidance/opinions are really appreciated as is your opinion on how or what to do to solve my quandary. Thank you in advance
