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

Mint State Presidential Dollars

Banks may not order any more future rolls??? Isn't it strange that the local bank branches which is part of a large midwest banking instition has decided not to order any more business strike presidential dollar rolls? Their reasoning is that they believe there is more than enough dollars in circulation now. SAY WHAT?? Isn't that one of the main reasons why the US Mint and our government started with dollar coins again for circulation is to eventually replace or least reduce the amount of p

US Postal Service....

Indeed....quite the service indeed! Anyone else have registered packages lost in the mail over the last few months? I have been expecting one from NGC since it departed March 9th from Sarasota to Wisconsin. There is no info on the USPS site since it left there and its been 9 days. It has never taken over a week before usually its 3-4 days. It would be a shame because I may never get to replace those coins with any other ones like it.

A SBA's Wide Rim Journey

No Respect for one Susan B Anthony dollar coin My life and times for me is a dark and unrespectful journey. I was first born with several other millions just like me. Except early on, my creator had decided to recreate me to be more pleasing to the beholder and make my rim larger. To me I think my cousins looked just fine the way they were. I had been given a special status....or least my creator called me special. Along the way, we were all given homes, some in nice warm cloth homes and

USPS revisted

Finally but... My registered package finally arrived after 10 days from Sarasota to Wisconsin. It never took that long before...but get this...Another package left NGC a week later and I got that one today...less than a week...Did I pay for the first one to take a extended vacation thru the country side?...hmmm.... Anyways...thanks for the special responses I got to hang in there. So what was all the worry you ask? It wasn't for any expensive or older coin but a 2009 SAC. I really like th

re: Why are there so many PCGS sets in NGC's Registry?

Because PCGS overgrades their modern coins and everyone knows they can buy it cheaper with a PCGS label. I have stated before that NGC needs to start exclusive sets that only allow NGC graded coins. There are too many sets with most or all PCGS coins in the NGC registry. This is really unfair that buy the coin and the label and are given no credit at all for this. I believe PCGS coins should have to be sent in to be CrossOver within a certain timeframe or have their points reduced to the ne

1999 P SBA MS 67 W

What does the "W" mean? I was going through some of my graded SBA coins. I came across this 1999 P SBA MS67 W. What does the "W" mean? I checked the number 119661-066 and it doesn't show anything other the norm. If you know what the "W" means and if this is rare, please let me know! Thanks

Something has got to change!!

PCGS SMS and First Day Issues most will not Crossover! The registry really should be for NGC graded coins alone. PCGS has their own registry and those coins should not be allowed in here. I have several Satin Finish Presidential dollars MS69 that I know will not crossover. If you can visibly see stains or marks with the naked eye, everyone knows that they would never be a MS69 SMS with NGC. There should be an allowance for those collectors that only want NGC in their registries. I chall

PCGS Crossover to NGC

More times than not, modern coins do not crossover. With all the hype how PCGS coins are valued higher, it doesn't always mean their grades equal NGC. I have come to a conclusion that PCGS over grades most modern coins meant for circulation. Perhaps they don't value modern coins importance so they don't examine as carefully as they do with the Commemorative coins and the older classics. I usually buy a few PCGS modern coins hoping they crossover to NGC to keep my registry as close to NGC co

Lousy Presidential Proof Sets

Tempted to return this sets but not sure if I would get any better next time. I gotta tell ya, these new Presidential Proof Sets are the worst I've seen from the US Mint in awhile. Remember the commemorative Old Mint from last year. Most had fine scratches and/or tiny pit marks. They are on these proofs as well including most are stained as well. If you look at the design closely, you will see why it will be near impossible to obtain a perfect PF70 on these coins. Also, I have found what

1956 Franklin Type 1 or Type 2

May the real Franklin standup I just purchased a complete collection of the 1956 NGC PF68 penny thru half dollar. They are in the older NGC holders. I noticed that the franklin doesn't have marked Type 1 or Type 2. My question is....is there a plain 1956 Franklin that isn't either a Type 1 or 2? and what is the diffence between those types? Thanks!

New Categories Needed!!

Open and Closed Set Types From my last journal entry, more agree with me and a few diehard PCGS collectors do not. They do not believe they should give up there ranking now. I take great pride when I select coins to send them in for grading to NGC. I do not send in bulk like most dealers who do not care about the coins' appearance just the grade. When I purchase coins for my registry, I look for only NGC coins first after all, this is a NGC Collectors Society. How would you feel if you j

A Strange but interesting Error

A SAC star is born... I found this error on a 2009 P SAC dollar from a bank roll. I don't collect errors unless it a true variety from NGC. I know this will be a one of a kind indeed. This can be seen with the naked eye as well. The question I have how would the "star" get there and where would it have come from. It looks larger than the stars on the edge. Would this be considered a "Die Clash"? There are two parallel lines that are near this star as well but does not show up on the pictu

2009 Sacagawea mintage figures

Silver and Clad Quarter Proof Sets

Its easy to weigh the sets from Ebay It looks like each year can vary just a couple of tenths but I weighed the 2005 Silver and Clad Quarter proof sets and here's what I found out. All 5 Silver Proof Quarters with the plastic case = 76.8 grams All 5 Clad Proof Quarters with the plastic case = 73.2 grams It might help if someone has all the sets straight from the Mint to weigh them and post all the results so we can protect ourselves from cheats!

Washington Dollar MS67

Went thru a few boxes only to find a few worth grading. After 5 boxes of "P" dollars looking for that infamous edgeless coin and taking time to pick out a few that was worth grading. I figured I had one MS67 and the rest MS66. I was correct on all of them except one MS65. My eyes must have tricked me again... Being from a small populated area in Wisconsin, the banks don't get the new coins in right away, making it impossible to ever get that gem MS67FD. I think there's too much weight p

Excellent NGC submission

Sometimes I even surprise myself! I've only been an active member here for 2 years and I can honestly say I am obsessed with the modern coins. I know that most seasoned collectors don't really consider modern coins worth the time to bother with them. I do appreciate the early designs and especially the history that goes with them. My pocketbook wouldn't allow me to invest with many early coins. I learned from a local coin dealer that they only way to learn how to grade coins is just sta

Adams Crossover

PCGS does not always grade stricker than NGC I submitted (7) 2007 Adams MS66 to crossover to NGC. Only two of them got the MS66 grade to crossover...This makes me wonder if we are all paying too much for slabbed PCGS when their grades could be less than than NGC. Sounds like more hype than real to me. Just had to add my two cents! Has anyone else come across this recently?
