I'm ready for my closeup...

After the wonderful response to my previous Journal entry, the first in my Collection Highlights series, I decided to turn the idea into a video series as well. So from here on out, each Collection Highlight post will be presented as both a text Journal entry, and a short video like the one featured here.

This being the first video in the series, I hope you'll check it out and let me know what you think. Any feedback on information or features that should be added to future videos in this series will be duly noted!

I like it, especially when you show the coins luster. The historical context with a picture of the Liberty Bell is especially compelling. Perhaps a few more pictures along with the artifacts you show would better give the viewer an idea of how big this event really was. The only other thing I noticed was a technical error. You stated the coin was struck in pure gold, technically speaking the coin is only .900 fine. Otherwise, it looked very professionally done. Gary

One other thing after watching the video the second time I noticed that you said that MS coins of this coin are rare. I think what you really meant was that Gem BU coins (MS-65, 66) of this coin are scarce.

Thanks so much! Regarding the technical error, you're right, of course, I guess I meant to say it was struck in gold as opposed to copper or brass or any other metal (obvious to collectors, but not so to my facebook friends and YouTube followers). Unfortunately winging it without a -script usually ends up with small errors like that. But when I've tried working with a --script in the past, I sounded like a robot. So I'd rather have the more-human presentation with the potential for a few small errors than the perfect robot presentation. If I were a better actor or voiceover performer I could have perfection of both, but c'est la vie! :)

Edited to add: I put a note about the gold/copper alloy in the video description on YouTube.

Hmm... Yes, I like it!

To the point, no unneeded fluff. Held my attention the whole time and that's no small feat.

Agreed, reading from a -script can really throw people off. Especially if they look off -script and loose there place, although that can be very entertaining. Always good to be accurate though.

Good Job,

Very nice video, I would be somewhat concerned about security by mentioning your name on a platform like youtube, but otherwise well done.

Thanks! Most of the valuable coins aren't kept here at the house most of the time. And I work from home, so I'm always here, the house is not left unguarded ever. It's been well known that I collect coins on my social media for ten years now without incident (aside from a few people assuming I'm super rich and asking for "loans" from time to time).
