RECEIVED MY JAMESTOWN $5.00 PROOF

The Jamestown $5 Proof was just delivered by Fed X today. I was pleasently surprized at the door when a FedX driver had a package for me today containing the Jamestown $5.00 Gold Proof. After giving it a close examination under 30 microscope I have to give the quality control of the West Point mint my salute and hats off to them. I think I have a Proof-70 grade. Thanks to this mint good work. Bernar
 

Received my 2 $5.00 San Francisco Today

Fire the Quality Control person at this mint. The reverse of both of my coins would not grade Pf-67 or Pf-68.On the shields right side there is missing metal on the outer rim of the shield at 3 oclock and minute specks where the metal did not flow. Who ever was in charge of quality control should have spotted this error.I would not bother sending in either to be graded they are that bad. I can only hope that bullion will increase in value to make these coins profitable. I also use a 30 power

MODERN COMMERATIVES

The MARINE $ in PF-70 condition way overpriced To all Modern commerative collectors please be aware that the population of PF-70 is about 2,200 in this grade. That means they are way overpriced in the auctions at $180-$200. They probably will sell for about $75 each in less than a year.And PCGS are not worth the $500-$600 they have been receiving in auctions.ADD ON I still see those who try to sell their OVER PRICED coins on Auctions are nothing but Greedy so and sos.When will they Learn tha

Exp. on a coin with a POP. of 2 only I have seen a bid in a auction of $9,000.00. 5.. PCGS on their POP. report shows in MODERN COMMERATIVES COMPLETTE 11 coins th
