I do have sets on layaway at hoskins, and they are the only sets that I have. Everything else is just here and there.

Indian Princess

It was the fascination with a three dollar "Indian Princess" that started the journey. In my hand was a shimmering green gold beauty, the first I'd actually seen. Rick had hand picked this coin for me after a long talk about gold we enjoyed a few weeks earlier. This Princess was much more than I had previously spent on a single coin but she was so lustrous and beautiful I had to have her. The gold bug bit me hard. I ran off scouring shops and coin shows buying every book on gold coinage I co

Just Learning

I have been collection non-USA circulation coinage for some years now. More of a "world Travel" hobbie where you never need to leave home. I also have a number of USA coins, not many actually graded. So, I'm just learning about the benefits of grading, both USA and foreign. Of most interest in having graded now are a 1890 Morgan silver dollar and a 1961 Russian 1 rouble.

Washington Quarters

I am completing a set for each of my kids. In the Chicago area I am finding that it is difficult to get Philadelphia minted quarters and I generally have to buy those. Pretty sad. Not to mention that they look awful after a while, but that topic is for another time!

Purchased 1877-CC dime

I was at one of my local shops (yes I have two. One in Niles, IL and the other in Glenview, IL. The shop in Glenview, had an 1877-CC dime in an NGC holder, MS61, and really nice. It is toned a nice shade of grey and has a pock-marked surface, indicative of the rusted dies that were used in that heavy production year. There is no rub ervident on the high spots so I believe the coin is indeed mint state. It seems to have a little dirt accumulated on it, that accentuates the detail. Overall a rea

THE JOY OF COMPLETION

"What is it about looking at a complete, matched set of coins that brings such pleasure?" I'm sitting here; glass of wine in hand; looking at an attractive group of coins lined up on the desk; and feeling pretty good about today's numismatic accomplishment. For today, the last coin needed to complete a set, arrived in the mail- an 1875-CC, 20 Cent, NGC-63. My 4 coin uncirculated set is now complete! I've been searching for this coin, in this condition for a couple of years, now. It's anot
 

First coin show

Held at Washington Middle School, Honolulu HI How exciting it is to start a new hobby!   Being totally ignorant of everything involved, other then the limitted internet research I have done, I found myself in awe of all the different beautiful coins presented. The first purchase I made was the "Red Book" and as I scanned through it, it was overwhelming. I finally admitted to myself that what started as a few nice coins being given to my little boy as presents have sparked an interest that

Saint-Gaudens' designs for American Coinage

Oh what could have been! A week ago, Eric von Klinger had an article in Coin World on the Saint-Gaudens pattern coins, telling a lot about the design process for the double eagle. Well, Teddy Roosevelt fully intended Saint-Gaudens to redesign every circulating coin in the country, to rid the populace of the "atrocious hideousness" of the then current designs. The other day I was thinking, what if Saint-Gaudens hadn't died before he finished the reworking of American coinage under Roosevelt?

Binion Collection

My first pedigree coin. My first pedgree coins are from the Binion Collection. It's just like a Hollywood movie, greed, sex, and murder. I enjoy this collection, but wish there were more dates and mints to collect, I don't think you can get a complete collection. I've only found Morgan, and Peace dollars for the registry, with a couple of Walking Liberty's.

MISSING GOLD EAGLES

Finding the missing eagles is a challenging task to say the least! Can anyone help!!!!!!!!!! I thought my set was starting to come together until I added it to the registry. Boy was I wrong! I am still filling the empty slots but it sure seems slow some times. I have quite a few extra 69 & 70's that I would be willing to trade for the ones I need if anyone is interested.
