Wow! Bright mint state Lafayette dollars for $1.75, less than the issue price! 893whatthe.gif

All joking aside, I really do like the post. It's lots of fun to look back and attempt to understand what the collecting community valued when that catalog was contemporary. I sure would have loved to see how the early cent set was graded based on contemporary standards.

Yeah, I guess that explains it, but I still wish I had a time machine! grin.gif


Interesting but if you did how exactly would you buy the coins? You would have a checking account and VISA's weren't available. You'd probably have to buy some early currency to take with you. Hopefully, that wouldn't cost you more than what the coins would be worth once you brought them back. 27_laughing.gif


Clearly, I have too much time on my hands to think about this kind of stuff... 893whatthe.gif
