The Newest Addition

One day on the DLRC(David Lawrence Rare Coins) I found a beautiful coin. A 1904-O Morgan Dollar. Just one problem. It cost 52 dollars! So after much debating, I took out my hard earned cash and bought it. On a side note, it was a 1*****(A beautiful coin). The days passed by and I literally was running around in circles waiting for it. Then it came! It was beautiful! I guess I have DLRC to thank and myself for being crazy enough to take out a wad of cash to buy it!   EDIT: After being messag

It's all about the journey.

I blame the Boy Scouts. Some of my facination with this hobby stated around age 9.Then coin collecting merit badge entrenched it in me. With myself it is Indians and buffalos.I keep looking for that better grade.Well through the years enthusiasm is up and down ,but my desire to keep searching has never left me,loking for indians and buffalos in mountains of old coins.Besides I can think of nothing better to collect than money.

Morgan Dollars: Why do we love them?

A nice type coin? Sure, they're pretty and desirable, but can you love them, and can you find them? Yes, I know, Morgan collectors are nuts. We break out in a sweat at the sight of a frosty MS-67. We mortgage our house for that 66 DMPL cameo. But just ask us to fork over the cash for an MS-65 Type 1 Standing Liberty Quarter, and all of a sudden we're short on cash because we have to fix the car. Or we have promised the wife "no, honey, I'm done buying anything else for a while." Never admittin
 

PCGS vs NGC Grading

Are PCGS coins graded more conservably than NGC coins? Then why are PCGS coins worth so much more when reselling? I recently submitted 7 lincoln cents graded pr70 ucam by NGC to PCGS for cross-over. Want to guess how many did?

Top 100 Liberty Seated Dime Varieties signature template available

Now that PCGS has recognized the major VAMS, can Top 100 Seated Dime varieties be next? Variety collecting is still in its infancy, but better web informational resources are pushing the collecting frontier. Finally I have found time to use the NGC Signature set forum as a vehicle to display a Top 100 Liberty Seated Dime Varieties template for others copy and use. The template is complete but I will be adding more descriptive details in the next few months. Right now, I'm trying to populate
 

Discovering a Beautiful Set of 1910 Gold Coins

What an Adventure! I seem to have something good here. Going through a storage unit last August 2005, I discovered a set of four 1910 gold coins [saint-Gaudens $20 and three Indian Head Type $10, $5, $2.5] that my grandfather gave me many years ago. They are protected in a United States Gold plastic and white vinyl case, and seem to be in near perfect condition. They may never have been out of the case. I'm starting to investigate, appreciating the beauty of the set, and learning the terms

THERE'S NO ACCOUNTING FOR TASTE

Why does one coin type appeal to a collector, while a similar denomination or design leaves him disinterested? Recently I brought a large group of coins home from the bank for a weekend visit. While looking through the collection, I began to notice what seems to me, at least, to be a bit of an oddity. And that oddity is my collecting preferences.   This is what I noticed: I love Barber Dimes and Quarters, but have no interest in the Half. I own but one for my type set.   I am an e
 

1971 Proof Kennedy errors?

Lint or hair stikes I have 2) 1971 proof Kennedy halves that have been struck with lint or hair on them. One has 2 places on the front (by the date and by the Y in LIBERTY), the other has one that went through the first L in DOLLAR that goes up to the top of the second L. Is there a market for such a thing?

New guy on the block

How does a person with half a mind learn what he needs to navigate this world of numismatics? My mother told me allot, "I've half a mind to. . . " So, I figured I must have the other half! I've been fascinated with numismatics for most of my life. Although I've never had any collections to speak of, especially a graded one. So here I go embarking on a journey that I hope will not only enrich my mind of the short but interesting history of our coinage, but maybe even enrich my safety deposit bo

BUY THIS BOOK!

UNITED STATES COINAGE A Study by Type by Ron Guth and Jeff Garrett. If you open this book, you will buy it. Let?s start with the photos. These are not just photos, these are works of art. Every page is headed by an obverse and reverse photo of the type coin discussed. In many cases the photos depict the finest example known.
