What's the difference?

4 posts in this topic

I was reading the latest issue of "the numismatist" and it had an ad about bowers and merena. It had a bunch of pictures from one of there auctions. Under the pictures it said how much they sold for. Some say "sold for $$$" others say "realized for $$$" and some say "brought $$$." What does each of these mean or are they just different ways of saying how much they were?

It's also a bunch of ineffective marketing. In the latest Numismatist, you ought to see the adjectives used on nearly every single item in that B&M ad. Of course, you could say I'm B and M'ing... Here are some:


"important 1797 Eagle"

"Landmark 1793 Wreath Cent"

"Outstanding 1806 Half Eagle"

"A Rare 1798/7 Dime"

"A Gorgeous 1931 $20 Gold"


Talk about overuse!
