Injured collector needs help!

I have a friend(fellow collector), who was seriously injured in a car fire and really needs some help! If you can do anything to help him and his family please follow this link: https://www.gofundme.com/6k3cba8 If you can't that is understandable at this time of year, send a prayer his way! Please add William to your churches prayer list also. Thanks for your time, help and prayers and I hope you all have a Blessed Holiday Season!

SP70 DPL ENHANCED FINISH SILVER KENNEDY's

I GOT 6 SP70 DPL(2) & PL(4) ENHANCED FINISH OUT OF 15 SETS OF THE 50th ANNIVERSARY SILVER KENNEDY FOUR COIN SETS. WITH ENOUGH OF THE OTHER COINS TO COMPLETE 8 SETS OF 70's SO FAR, I HAVE SENT IN 40 SETS OF THE "50th ANNIVESARY SILVER HIGH RELIEF KENNEDY HALF DOLLAR SETS". OF THE FIRST 20 SETS GRADED I GOT 4 COMPLETE SETS OF 70's, AND OF THOSE 15 SETS THERE ARE 8 COMPLETE 70 SETS, STILL WAITING ON THE LAST FIVE SETS TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED. I WILL UPDATE WHEN I GET THE RESULTS. THANKS FOR LOOK

WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO DO!?

THINKING OF SELLING MY BASEBALL HOF COINS! I WENT TO THE BALTIMORE WHITMAN COIN EXPO, AND WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET THE BASEBALL HALL OF FAME COINS AND GET THEM GRADED AS "OPENING DAY RELEASES". BUT, THE DELIMA IS, I AM BEHIND ON MY MORTGAGE AND MY MORTGAGE HOLDER HAS OFFERED ME A REALLY LOW BUYOUT AND I WOULD OWN MY HOUSE OUTRIGHT! WELL, NOW THE PROBLEM IS COMING UP WITH THE CASH TO DO SO, I HAVE SOLD MOST OF THE COINS FROM THE EXPO ON EBAY, I AM NOW DOWN TO MY PERSONAL COLLECTION COINS MINU

Dont just delete survey's!!

Heritage Auctions taught me this lesson. Roughly two months ago, I was running down the hundreds of emails i had received in my personal e-mail account. Normally i would just delete most emails based on the title of it, and surveys usually get deleted the fastest. I dont like people prying into my preferences of collecting, reading, listening etc. etc. But that day i decided to open the e-mail, i read how they would be awarding some of the respondants a coin as a prize. So i answered the quest

LET ME APPOLOGIZE PUBLICLY

I GUESS BY ASKING FOR PRAYERS I WAS SOMEHOW WRONG! I AM THE ONE WHO A FEW DAYS AGO ASKED FOR PRAYERS ON THE TWO ROLLS OF 1987 SILVER EAGLES, TO GRADE OUT WELL. I AM DISABLED AND STRUGGLE WITH MY FINANCES FROM WEEK TO WEEK AND THOUGHT THAT MAYBE A FEW MEMBERS WOULD PRAY THAT GOD WOULD BLESS MY FAMILY AND MYSELF. I RECEIVED A NASTY RESPONSE FROM A MEMBER, I WON'T NAME ANY NAMES BUT BY READING A FEW OF THE PREVIOUS JOURNALS I AM SURE YOU COULD FIGURE IT OUT. THIS MEMBER SAID HE WOULD "PRAY THA

I HAVE A FEW ROLLS OF THE 2010 CENTS IN HAND(SEE PHOTO)

I AM THINKING ABOUT SENDING THESE IN FOR A PRE-RELEASE LABEL IF I CAN GET NGC TO PUT THE PRE-RELEASE ON THE LABEL!?! I WAS ABLE TO PURCHASE A FEW OF THESE ROLLS THIS WEEK, UNFORTUNATELY ONE OF THE ROLLS WAS BUSTED WHEN I RECEIVED IT. SO I AM DEBATING ON GETTING THAT ROLL GRADED. THERE WASN'T ANY LOOSE COINS BUT THE ROLL HAS BEEN TORN A LITTLE. BUT IF I CAN GET NGC TO PUT SOME KIND OF DESIGNATION ABOUT BEING RELEASED EARLY ON THE LABEL IT IS A SURE THING TO HAVE THEM GRADED.

What do you do when you are stuck spinning your wheels with no hope of getting out?

With noone to speak to about my problems I turn to the "society". Well I want to appologize in advance for bringing this personal matter to you all here, but I have no where else to turn. I also, appologize for bringing such dreadfull problems here in the season of what should be happiness and joy. I have had a few years of feeling hopeless, helpless and uselessness. I am disabled, i hurt my back on March 23, 2002, working for our local trash collectors, recycling division. I lifted a hea

SILVER-BETTER THAN GOLD? I'M BEGINNING TO BELEIVE THAT WAY!!

GETTING RID OF MOST OF MY GOLD AND INVESTING IN 90% SILVER. WELL IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS I HAVE AQUIRED AROUND $300.00 FACE OF SILVER COINAGE. I AM SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING SELLING MOST OF MY GOLD COINS TO INVEST IN SILVER(TAKE A LOOK MOSTLY PF70UC AND MS70 EARLY RELEASES) I WOULD BE WILLING TO TRADE FOR 90% SILVER U.S. COINAGE AT AN EVEN EXCHANGE FOR THE CURRENT MARKET VALUES OF THESE COINS. THE 1 OUNCERS ARE NOT FOR SALE NOR ARE ANY BUFFALOS. THE REST CAN GO! IF ANY OF YOU ARE INTERESTED CALL(513

I SENT IN 5 AND GOT THE FOLLOWING: 1-MS69 EARLY RELEASES 4-MS70 EARLY RELEASES NOT TOO BAD, NOT TOO BAD AT ALL. NOT A BAD INVESTMENT FOR $900. I WAS HOPING IT WOULD HAVE BEEN LESS, BUT AFTER ALL THE FEES ON FEEBAY THATS WHAT IS LEFT. I WISH I WOULD HAVE WAITED TO SELL THESE TILL THIS WEEK SINCE GOLD HAS WENT UP $31 IN THE PAST 2 DAYS. BUT

here is a photo for you to enjoy this is my 09 double eagle, the one i was worried about getting before the early releases cut-off date. I received it three days before cut-off, and had to overnight it to get it there in time to receive the Early Releases designation. She turned out to be the coveted MS70 Early Releases. Thanks for looking!

Fairwell to part of my collection, but for a good reason!!

What do I do when i want to keep my coins but want something I have dreamed of as far back as I can remember? I have come across an opportunity to purchase a 1969 Ford Mustang Convertible, and I am torn between my collection and this car. I have done a little research on this car and have found that it is potentialy a very valuable automobile, but I will have to part with some of my coins to finance it. When i came upon the car the seller wanted $10,000.00 for it, after viewing it and research

FIND THE GOOD IN THE SITUATION, INSTEAD OF SEEKING OUT THE BAD, LIFE IS JUST EASIER THIS WAY, LESS STRESS EQAULS LONGER LIFE!! FIRST OFF. THEY ARE NOT ASSIGNING A NUMERIC GRADE TO PROBLEM COINS, THEY ARE ADDING A DETAILS GRADE: FOR EXAMPLE IF THE COIN WOULD GRADE AN XF40 IF THERE WASN'T ANY SURFACE ISSUES, THEY ARE CALLING IT AN XF ONLY, NO NUMERIC GRADE OF 45!
