About this journal

Time to switch gears.  Focusing on buying some investment property and need some capital. I haven't really added much

to my coin collection in awhile either.  I decided all my SAC, Presidential dollars and Silver Eagles must go.  If anyone is

interested, please look at my sets and let me know what tweaks your interest.  I am not done being part of this society just

clearing house... :)

I have returned to Collectors Society!

I have not been active in this society for a few years.  I have been slowly selling off my collection. I have been battling a rare blood cancer.  I may only have only a couple more chemo treatments left, fingers crossed.  Prays are welcome! I have lots of time on my hands and been forced to retire middle of last year.  I decided that once I am indeed in remission, full time retirement is not really for me. I have recently  started to submit coins to NGC once again.  I got my

2016 Poor Quality Mint Sets

Submitted only 15 coins Out of 55 Mint Sets, I was only able to find 15 coins to submit. Other than the dime and a couple of the nickels, everything else is average.

NGC's reponse to adjusting the Presidential MS point

WE ALL HAVE BEEN DUPED! I did complain to NGC and got the same response posted on my earlier post. So let me respond to that. After 10 years of having the same points issued with very little change, NGC now believes the points are way over the top and had to be adjusted. Well, I am not buying it. We all have been DUPED. The series are coming to a close after this year. That means NGC will not be making more money on Presidential Dollar submission. I can tell you that anyone th

Feel betrayed and very disappointed

Presidential Dollars, 2007-Date, Mint State Registry Point. How in the world can I lose over 51,000 point??? Some are very low mintage and low in high grades. I have worked on this set for 10 years. Half the dollars are ones I found raw and had graded. We will conclude this series this year and how can NGC strip all the points away now???

2016 Oshkosh Coin show

Braided Hair Half Cents, 1849-1857, Circulation Issue I went a coin show in Oshkosh, Wi last Sunday morning. they usually have about 50 dealers. A lot of them I have seen now and again sometime at the smaller coin show in Green Bay. By the time I arrived, the place was fairly crowded and some dealers had them in line so it was hard to even get a glance what they had to offer. As usual, most dealers had the staples of Morgan dollars, Walkers and Quarters. A lot of customers were busy lookin

Latest Submission - Mark Twain

My best so far I had ordered 20 proofs and 20 U.C. from the Mint the very first day offered. The Proofs were not high quality so I was only able to submit 3 of them. I am pleased with this result since the previous two submissions was a disappoinment. I was starting to think my eyes were starting to fail me. 001 2016 P MARK TWAIN S$1 PF 69 ULTRA CAMEO 002 2016 P MARK TWAIN S$1 PF 70 ULTRA CAMEO 003 2016 P MARK TWAIN S$1 PF 70 ULTRA CAMEO 004 2016 P MARK TWAIN S$1

Ego & Vanity vs Principles & Integrity

What would you do? I could easily be NGC Best in Category for the Presidential Mint State series. All I would need to do is buy the two MS69s available on Ebay and I would be in the lead. The price is not too bad for either of those Presidents either. Here's the issue: I could sell out my principles and integrity for what is simply for Ego and Vanity. Awards are nice but if it all it takes is who has the most money in the end to win, its not much of an accomplishment. And, in hundred yea

1960 Uncirculated Mint Set

1960 TYPE B REV 25C I just received a 1960 mint set I purchased on Ebay. I always inspect the coins to evaluate the conditions of the coins to see if any are worthy to send in for grading. Something told me to see if there is any Varieties. Sure enough clear as day the "P" quarter has the 1960 TYPE B REV variety. This is my first variety find. The quarter is possibly MS66. So now I need some advice what you would do. Should I leave the mint set as is or break the quarter out to grad

2015 Business Strike Submittal Results

The 2015 Roosevelt MS69 FT dime was a real surprise so was the 2015 Bombay MS67 PL quarter.Over all, not too bad. My real desire is with the Presidential Dollars. The series is about to come to a close too. Only one MS68 dollar of the ones I submitted. I had bought 55 Mint sets and did not find many at all to send it.The 2015 Roosevelt MS69 FT dime was a real surprise sowas the 2015 Bombay MS67 PL quarter. This is my first PL quarter too.

Disturbing Discovery

This one gives other coin dealers a bad rap in my opinion. I have recently discovered a dealer on Ebay that goes by two different names. He use to go by what looked very similar to a name of Gotcha. Most dealers will put forth the effort and send in raw coins for grading then sell them on Ebay. This one does the vulture method and buys up newly graded coins from other dealers on Ebay that no one bids on. Basically taking graded coins away from real collectors. Anyways.... the more recent t

Merry Christmas to me!

One of my best submission ever!! I have been finding a coin here and there and had waited until I had enough for a submission to make it worth while. I just learned of the results and I am really impressed. The 2014 P SAC MS69 and the 2014 D Kennedy MS69 blew me away. I should be collecting Mint State nickels but I thought collectiing the proofs was enough. The 1972 P nickel MS66 6FS was more than I expected as well. There is only one that exists in that grade before this one. Merry X

1959 Proof Set

Usually they are disappointing. I purchased a 1959 Proof set for $22.00. I did not really have high expectations. Usually they are stained and poor strikes and a few dings.   This time...wow...I was very impressed and excited.   I didn't waste anytime to submit all five with some others I have been holding on until I had enough to make it worth it.       Here is my prediction:   Penny PF68 (maybe Cameo)   Nickel PF68 (possible PF69)   Dime PF68 (outside chance for Cameo)

Another Mediocre Submission

2014 Mint Sets still are not impressive. At Least I got four MS68's and there was a few I could add to my registry. I must be a glutton for punishment though. I ordered another 25 mint sets. What is the definition of crazy?... I am quite pleased finding a pair of Lincoln Shields though. 001 2011 P ANDREW JOHNSON $1 MS 67 002 2011 P JAMES GARFIELD $1 MS 67 003 2012 P GROVER CLEVELAND 1ST TERM $1 MS 66 004 2014 D 1C MS 67 RD 005 2014 D 1C MS 68 RD

Nearly 60 but can not retire and just was laid off

See anything you like below, let me know WOW... One can never really be prepared when you get laid off from work. When you get close to retirement age and realize you may never get to really retire, it does get depressing. Doesn't matter how old you are when it happens, it feels the same way. Problem is that I have three grown children and all of them are out of work as well. I been trying to help out with two of them moved back home...again. Most of you have already experienced this you

Poor 2014 U.S. Mint Sets

Submitted only 18 coins from 55 Mint Sets What can I say. You wait all year for the next annual Mint Sets to arrive hoping to find just one MS69 coin. For me, that hasn't happened yet and after going thru 55 Mint Sets, it won't be this year either. Out of 1,540 coins, I was only able to find 18 good enough to submit for grading. My only real goal is to populate my Presidential Business Strike Registry set. All duplicates and other coinage are sold to support my habit. Here is the res

Silver Eagle Set

First its all part of the set now its all removed NGC just adjusted the Silver American Eagle registry set. From 2011 to the present, NGC had all the "Struck" Eagles part of the set. I was about to give up trying to collect 6 - 7 eagles every single year was getting way too much. Now its back to where it really belongs. So now what do I do with all those other Eagles I never really wanted to buy in the first place.. Merry Christmas everyone! Keith To see old comments for this Journ

My latest NGC submission

Not bad but once again...nothing new for my registry. I thought I would get at least three MS68's and I did but not ones I really wanted. I didn't have much cash to submit a whole lot but did spread it around on some nickels, quarters and dollars. I was able to replace the 2011 P Hayes Early Releases with a regular label. I really don't care much for those "Releases". I see more of the dealers got the message this year and hardly any offered those...Thank goodness. My secondary goal is to

Personal Family Dilemma

To Sell or not to Sell.... I know we all collect for different reasons and we, at times, change the direction what we collect and certain times. I started the SAE set a few years back. Silver was low so I expected to buy the West Point Eagles directly from the US Mint. I could afford to buy around 10 of them and hopefully find a few that could be MS70 to keep one and sell the rest to support "the habit".....collecting that is. I know I would never be able to afford to purchase those earli

2013 P MS67 NGC Jefferson Nickel Reverse Die Clash

It came back just as I predicted as MS67. Sometimes you get lucky and find a MS67 6FS nickel. But you have an angel with you when you can find it with a Die Clash. This is the same one I posted a couple of weeks ago. I first stated it was a Struck Thru but a member corrected me that it was a Die Clash. I even knew that but forgot the term... anyways.. I didn't bother sending it as a Mint Error since it was not enough of it. To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here

Presidential Business Strike Dollars

Its been rewarding and a challenge thus far. First off, I want to thank "SBH" for the compliment he left on his own registry set about mine. Not everyone appreciates sticking to only grading or buying NGC coins. Secondly; I still have a few FDI dollars left in the First Day Issue set, I've been selling them off one of one. I could add them to my Business Strike set but that is not the intent to that set and I could never get the Number One set in my lifetime unless I was for

2013 P Jefferson Nickel Reverse Struck Thru Error

A MS67 too! I went to my local coin dealer in Green Bay. They sell more trading cards than coins. Not surprising yeh? Anyways, I bought 4 of the 2013 Mint Sets. There last four they had in stock with 3 still sealed brown boxes and one open for display. The best of all four sets was....the opened one... Going thru the coins in the sets something caught my eye and I relooked and sure enough there is a few impressions on the Reverse right below the steps. The photo didn't show it all b
