Well the 2020 registry awards are in the books, it was a good year for me with 6 best in category awards one better than last year. Hopefully I'll be able to make a couple of additions and hang on to those for next year, that task may be much more difficult depending on if the launce of the ANA registry brings in more heavy hitters from the PCGS registry. But maybe with a couple of adds here or there I can keep up on most of last years wins. Time to begin planning and chasing once again to fu
2020 what a ride, some ups and lots of downs. The year started off promising enough and then covid covered the world with a wet blanket like we have not seen before. A rough year of many especially those who lost loved ones to the pandemic, but a boon to some that were able to continue and even profit due to it. As I look back my life was not terribly affected by it overall from either a personal or numismatic perspective. As I do every December I looked back as what I did, what I bought, an
And I'm tired of writing, phew. Now I do not consider myself a natural when it comes to writing, I don't live on facebook or any other social media platform nor do I do much writing for my job so it just is not easy or natural for me the way it is for some.

Ok down you animals I'm already spoken for, no what I'm referring to here is that this year for the first time ever I will have a registry set (multiple sets in fact) that are eligible for NGC major awards. My 1936 mint set has 10 of the fifteen slots filled and all the coins are NGC certified, yep not one PCGS coin in this set. And I expect that I will have high quality photos and descriptions for all of the current ten coins in the set by Dec 4th. I have set a goal for myself to have this
Just added new pics to my Lincoln sets and a couple that are not yet availible to view.
In keeping with my desire to have nice high quality pics of my registry coins thru 1958, I sent another group of coins to Mark Goodman as his pics are wonderfull. As usual he did a fantastic job so now I have high quality pics of all but a few coins thru 1937. Most of these new pics are of the coins in the mid 30s thru 1937 and are your basic red coins, but if you decide to browse these new ones I espe
Great photos of common and not so common date Lincolns
For those of you that are following me I apologize as I am not much of a writer or blogger as you can see as I only post one journal entry a year . I once again have new pics that were taken by Mark Goodman. Every time I send Mark coins to be imaged I am amazed by his skill. This time I added 14 sets of obv/rev photos (all Lincolns in this group) to coins in my inventory and sets. I say inventory as two or three of the coins I have not
