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... :)

Persistance Pays Off

One big WOW too! Here is my latest submission results. I been chasing the 2011 P Sacagawea and the P Garfield for some time. I got both MS68's this time. I wasn't going to pay $300 or more for either of these modern dollars. I have now looked at about 40 - 2013 US Mint sets and I have to say that the quality has really took a nose dive. It will really take some effort to get all the 2013 Presidents in MS68 year. I may need to even purchase a few but no way would any be worth $500 or mor

Silver and Gold take a tumble

Will the Mint lower prices? With Silver and Gold prices plummeting to over a 2 year low. How long will the US Mint adjust some of their Commemorative coin prices and Eagles? My guess is sometime next week? To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

2011 (w) struck at West Point Silver Eagles

Check out Ebay If you were like me and collect Silver Eagles and avoided buying the 2011 (w) Silver Eagle because it was not originally part of the Silver Eagle registry slots until real recent, check out Ebay. Though they are PCGS bullion, I doubt if you will find any that are still affordable with NGC. BTW... I don't sell Silver Eagles...just buy the ones I need to fill my slots is all Good luck!

1989 S Jefferson Nickel PF70 UC NGC

This even surprised me. Earlier I posted I upgraded my Nickel Proof collection and thought I would never be able to purchase any PF70 UC nickels under the year of 1990. One seller kept having a weekly auction of the 1989 nickel. They were going between $85 and $125.00, I placed a bid on one for this past Sunday for a max of $85.00 and no one bid on it after me so I purchased it for only $76.00!!

1969-S NGC PF 69 Ultra Cameo Jefferson Nickel

A EBAY steal Usually I don't mention on here what I purchased or added to any of my collections. I have been searching for a 1969 S PF69 UC nickel for awhile that was affordable. There was one being auctioned on Ebay I noticed over this weekend. Starting bid at $139.00 with less than 24 hrs left and no bids. I bid $146.00 and hoped for the best. I am one of those that question paying too much for a modern coin. If I can't get a deal, then I just pass on it. Low and behold, No one else

NGC slow to update census

Is it because of major dealers? Anyone else notice that NGC is slow to update the census after any major dealer has had many submissions. I know that NGC had the results before end of day on Friday because the dealer was making many of the coins for sale on Ebay starting around mid-week last week. The census is a very valuable tool for all of us coin collectors to know just how many are graded. Seems to me NGC waits to keep the numbers low to please the major dealers. For examaple, If I

Where's the Beef???

No 2012 dollar census It has been over 4 weeks at least that neither the Presidential or the Sacagawea mint state dollar census has been entered. Anyone else notice this? I really would like to know the census numbers one of these days. Keith To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

MS Nickels - Six Full Steps

Its not easy finding these in higher grades with full steps. Its been awhile since I posted anything to the journal or have been able to do much collecting since my unemployment beginning of the year. It seems the market place is not as eager to hire a Vietnam-Era Vet over 55. As the line goes from the movie "Youth is wasted on the wrong people"... Here is my lastest attempt for those nickels: 001 1988 D 5C MS 66 6FS 002 1989 P 5C MS 66 6FS 003 1989 D 5C MS 65 6FS

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

What happens if ...

Returned 25th Anniversary SAE sets These late coming 25th Anniversary SAE sets makes me wonder. What do you think the U.S. Mint would do with returned 25th Anniversary SAE sets?? Sets that the original buyer bought, opened the boxes and saw the poor quality and returned them. Would the U.S. Mint repackaging them and resell them again?? This might be a buyer be aware!! I hope sure hope not but just wondering is all. Keith Stevens To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here

Wondering where some of those Anniversary Sets went to?

Hundreds of sets?? Here an email I just received from ParadiseMint: 2011 American Eagle 25th Anniversary Silver Coin Sets   This is the set that sold out in approx 5 hours at the US Mint. The mintage was half of the 2006 20th Anniversary Sets. While we have hundreds of sets coming in or at NGC. We do still expect to sell out quickly so don't delay.   Hundreds??? Hmmm...talk about abuse and lack of any consideration over greed and sheer profit! They are selling raw sets for over $100

Preferred mailing address?

UPS/FedEx or USPS for anniversary sets I need the building address for NGC to submit my one set of the Anniversary set. I would rather use UPS for this submission than the Postal Service since is fairly large. What has everyone been using for a carrier? An address would be greatly appreciated!!

Circulated Half Dollar Rolls

Bank Wrapped from $500 boxes I have noticed there are a few sellers on Ebay offering $10 half dollar rolls unsearched. Talk about a questionable way to search for 40% silver Kennedys and 90% silver halves. First, just about anyone with a bank connection can buy a few rolls for face value of the rolls. Banks, by law, can not make a profit, some though charge so much a roll to cover their expenses. Second, Silver weighs more than straight clad coins. Even though dealers are stating "unsearch

First Day Issue Presidential Dollar set

All will go!! I made a decision last night and felt the same way this morning. I been collecting the Presidential dollars since the start in 2007. It gets to be a lot to have a FDI set, a Business set, a SMS set and a proof set. I have stopped the SMS set about two years ago. I realized I would have been one of those collectors what would have loved to try to order the 2011 25th Anniversary Silver Eagle set. I could only afford to order one set. A set that could really appreciate over the

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!

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!
