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

Presidential Dollars

Not totally gone but made just for us now The government in its "wisdom" decided to stop the US Mint from producing the presidential dollars for general circulation. Souns like the dollars would still be made for the mint sets and the specially wrapped rolls in the white boxes. No more $1000 boxes. The government really has been another chance to stop making the dollar bill. The public would then start using the dollar coin which lasts up to 7 times longer than the paper currency. That wo

2010 P Sacagawea Great Law of Peace NGC MS67

There is an error on the reverse but what kind is it? I had a couple fo these with errors graded and both came back as MS67 from NGC. I did not indicate they were error coins though. Now I know the grade, I need some advice from all you experts. Is this a gradeable error by NGC and what type is it? To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here.

2010 P Sacagawea Great Law of Peace Dollar Reverse Error

What would you call this error? I just received two $250 boxes of SAC 2010 dollars. I have only gone through a few rolls and already found 6 of these error coins on the reverse. May not be worth much but sure is fun when you find something new! To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

US Mint Site is down

Too many orders for the 5 oz Hot Springs silver coin I got thru to the US Mint site at 10 mins after the official selling time today for the 5 oz Silver "P" Hot Springs coin. 1. 2010 ATB SILVER COIN - HOT SPRINGS (NP1) Not 100% sure if I will get one yet but I am pretty sure since I just tried to log back into the US Mint site, They took down the catalog section.... or it crashed. I feel lucky to order one now. Good luck to everyone else that is still trying! Keith To see old com

1995 D Kennedy Half Dollar Struck Thru Error

Quite the Error Find! Going through another box of circulated half dollars and finding another 13 - 40% Silver Kennedy Halves, I just happened to glance at one of the roll ends that caught my eye for the date. I find this amazing that this Struck Thru Error which is quite the error made it to circulated rolls. Course if it had not been at the end of the roll face up, I, too, would have not found it either. Makes you wonder what else is sitting in a box waiting in some vault to be discovere

2011 P ATB 5 oz Silver Coins

US Mint changes I just noticed that the US Mint now will allow up to 5 ATB's from the same address instead of only one. Like that stopped dealers from ordering more than the limit. And now the US Mint is going to mint 35,000 per coin but will still charge $279 each. Hopefully they will start producing better quality... Happy opening NFL season!

1971 P nickel

Another Six step nickel I have been lucky enough to find a six step 1987 P nickel and came back MS67 from NGC. Now I am lucky again with a 1971 P nickel MS66 six steps from NGC. Only 3 at this grade and only one higher!! I am not always correct with the grade at times but I am getting the hang of full steps. Everyone enjoy the MLB playoffs...Go Brewers!

Changes are needed now for Registry Set Awards!

Registry Awards have lost their luster! Again, This may come across as mean and a poor sport but changes are needed for the registry awards. Cancer has spread across many registry sets and doesn't seem to have any cure and is not slowing down. LLC's have taken over many modern sets buying up all high grade coins overpaying many times what the coins would be worth in the future all for a small piece of paper saying...I'm am number 1 again... but it also is saying "I have unlimited resources

1981 D Jefferson Nickel Business Strike MS66 NGC 5FS

Only 4 exists in the NGC census!! Once is a great while you find a coine worth grading while looking for something else. I usually buy 1981 mint sets on Ebay now and again looking for that MS67 SBA. I have been lucky before so I am still hopeful it will happen again. This 1981 D Jefferson Nickel Business Strike MS66 NGC 5FS coin has lots of luster and a great strike, hard to find from the 70's and 80's. I usually don't collect business strike nickles but I could not just toss it away eith

2010 P Sacagawea Missing Eye

Mutiple errors Lately the US Mint has created some very interesting errors with their Sacagawea Business Strike Dollars. This one has a missing eye, parts of the mouth and face are missing. A Hugh Die Break too. I don't collect error coins but I know other collectos love them. Amazing when you are looking at how the strike is on the coin and then your eye catches that she is missing hers! To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here.

2010 NGC Silver Eagles MS70

I found a place still taking orders online for $99 After watching the activity on Ebay on the 2010 Silver Eagles and others reporting the poor quality and the USMint limiting production... its hard to get a good feeling just what the real situation could be. I broke down and ordered one from the very company that advertises on our webpage here. http://www.moderncoinmart.com Their site said they sold out right away but are expecting more for delivery later this week.

Early Releases

Just what does Early Releases label offer?? Let me first state that I am not against the "Early Releases" label but I do not understand why we need it at all. I could see it when it was just the Silver Eagles and how some collectors want just that label or collect every label that exists. So... as a collector...do we collect the coin or the grading company or the label? Does anyone really care if they get an Early Release nickel or Presidential dollar when there is no extra points given t

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?

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
