Still Curious: What will be "hot" in Long Beach this week?

13 posts in this topic

For the first time in awhile I will not be at the Expo after having moved out of California and having put much of my little collection up for auction. I still visit the boards and look at coins. A collector is a collector...what can you do? I'm just not buying these days. I have a lot to learn before I go back to spending significant funds on numismatic items. Two years of impulsive spending is enough.


With all that's going on, I wonder what you all will be looking for. Is gold hot with the dollar stinky? What about type coins? Toned coins? Scarce/rare dates?


Is the market indeed "hot" or "hype?" What DEFINES a hot market anyway?


I look forward to your responses and have fun in the LBC,

Color coins will be hot, IMHO. High, GEM grade with attention grabbing rainbow color.


Also, PCGS FA02 Albany's will be hot.


Ok, so it's a POP ONE coin and a Dealer I know just made it and is holding it for me... I think it's HOT.


When's the last time you saw a Beaver in FA02?!

Gold will be hot. We're starting to hear the chatter that gold will hit $400, $500, $1 BILLION!!!! All the clueless gurus are jumping onto the bandwagon.

All those gurus are wrong. Gold prices will soon be dropping, after all they are finding gold by the truck full over in Iraq now! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

What will be hot will be whatever PCGS has graded a bunch of in the last few weeks. An article will appear saying that Roosevelt Dimes is hot if they got a couple thousand coins in the last week or two. If someody is bulk grading generic Morgans, generic Morgans will be hot.


Can't speak for the other auctions, but the Heritage auction is going to do well. Even the generic stuff is high quality, and I've been outbid already on two generic Type coins. A non-FH SLQ in 65 and a No Motto $5 Liberty in 58. And I had solid bids on both.

I got to agree on the dime thing. The registry people will be lining up to spend big bucks on the new designation.

Mark- Did I come on the PCGS MS68 Lexington thread and ask how much you sold the coin to Bruce for? Why are you coming on here and asking questions you have no right to the answer to about the Albany? You obviously passed on the coin at the Central States show when it was raw and now I own it in the WONDER GRADE of FA 02 and am entitled to the windfall for receiving the incredible downgrade. grin.gif

By the way, if you want to compare notes. Give me a call and we can trade information about prices on the two coins. wink.gif

Is a FA02 Albany really up for competitive bidding? If both Pat and I are in the house, it could be a four figure coin! Is an image available.


Four figures?!? shocked.gif893censored-thumb.gif
