Pat,

The Marketplace forum is a board for the purpose of buying, selling and trading coins between members. So it may indeed be the place for advertising ones coins.

I will discuss this with you over on that forum if you would like???

Pat,

Those three dimensional rubic's cubes are so easy.You should try a four dimensional rubic's cube.Instead of six sides they have twelve sides. That one took me a long time to figure out.

Pat,

That cube hurt. It took a long time. It was shaped like a pentagonal dodecahedron.

It is long gone now by about 15 years.I never want to see one again nor figure it out again.

A serious question for you Patrick. You strike me, after reading your comments here and on the PCGS side (I don't real the CoinWorld forums-) as a pretty smart guy.

Anyone that can solve one of those Rubic puzzles is REAL clever and intelligent in my book.

Now, with all this going for you- and I'm not being a wize ass here, why are you so involved in these quarters?

 

If you're not comfortable answering on this open forum, possibly the courtesy of a PM?

Thanks.

Pat,

If there were a thousand of the coins I would not be interested in the coin. I have been looking for more over this seven month periond and have only have found twelve of them. It strikes me odd that it is a proof coin with a big error on it in that conspicious spot. BTW my oldest sister is a seargent, my second sister a dispacher superviser and her husband is a detective down in south Florida.Myself I would have made a bad cop because I would have busted to many heads open.

I can't say I know much about this coin, or any error coin for that matter. But, when I see that you've only located 12 samples of this, I think that it's because so few people even bothered to note that they have an ``error'' coin as opposed to a USMint-sucks-they-sent-me-a-damaged coin.

 

It is entirely possible that you may be onto something with your unabashed Minute Man SQ. But, it'll take quite a bit of a marketing campaign to garner interest in this error.

 

Error coins, in general, do not hold great interest within the general collecting populace. As an example, Early Dollars are HOT, HOT, HOT right now. Multiply-struck ED's are MUCH rarer than the singly-struck specimens, yet they command little interest.

 

Pat Braddick's comment earlier about supply versus demand is particularly relevent in this case. Not only do you have seemingly far more specimens than collectors of this, but you may even have more specimens of this than people who actually care to take the time out of their busy day to think about this.

 

Please keep in mind that I'm no error specialist, and that I'm only speaking as a seasoned generalist...

 

Regards,

I like it EVP!

I think you should start a cooking and coins show called "The Seasoned Generalist."

I know you've got the coins, and I'll bet you have some good receipes too.

My wife has the food channel on around here 24-7, at least I'd finally have something to watch.

Many examples exist in the price guide books with low mintage or high mintage coins. They have errors on them that bring high premiums. Hopefully, this coin will be the same.

If kinkoin really wants these to take off, all he has to do is bribe the Whitman people to make a place for " Minuteman" in the state quarters albums. Well, since Whitman doesn't have as much market share as they once did, he might want to bribe the Littleton people, also. Once it's recognized as a "must have" for those trying to fill their coin albums, demand will jump.

 

Until then they'll stay like any of the other die crack, die scratch, etc. varieties out there.

King- Don't let these nincompoops discourage you. I'm sure the dude that discovered the three-legged Buffalo nickel got the same flack.

 

My only suggestion is you've got to come up with a better name.

The proper name- the proper recognition- I think you and I have a real winner here.

What do you say?

Partners?

Is there a 13th coin? I hadn't heard that.

I did bid on an eBay auction for one of these about a month or so ago (was it yours?) and lost out.

 

Let me think about the name.

Maybe a "three legged Minuteman" would work!

Shiroh,

 

Quit baiting. This isn't PCGS, and we are discussing coins here. If you pay attention, Pat has brought up some interesting questions so far, including grading standards for errors, and questions on other modern mint errors.

Keith- Which Pat? Me or KinCoin?

Now, I'm hoping to generate juuuust enough interest to get this Thread over the 1,000 viewed mark.

I don't think another thread has done that yet.

 

If anything, we've educated the masses on these truly rare and desirable collectibles.

 

The topper would be if we could just get OlderTrader3 or EVP to pipe in.

Braddick, you always bring up good points. wink.gif

 

I think that Kingkoin has brought some interesting insights into a speciality area of the market that many don't deal with -- modern errors. It also brings the lesson of supply and demand -- used to be, you couldn't give away a PR-70 or MS-70 commem. They sold on CU auctions for about $100 a pop. Now see what Teletrade prices bring for these pieces.

 

Granted, the same thing may not happen with this piece, but one day, you never know, state quarter errors may become a hot market.
