Four Nice Pick-ups in one Shot

Entry posted by jackson64 · - 737 views

I've been so busy lately with work, family, yard work and pre-Christmas activities I've barely had any time for hobbies. Even after I made a purchase last Sunday evening it took me 3 days before I even had time to swing by the post office box and pick up my new additions-- and this was because I had gifts for family out-of-state to mail.

I've gotten into replacing some slots in my Washington album with mint state coins if the price is right and I found a nice 4-coin lot of all MS64 PCGS coins from the early 1940's at a recent auction. You know the drill--an early low-ball bid to get the items on my Bid list and then about a half hour before auction end I checked and the price was still pretty low. Someone had outbid me but not by a lot. I waited until 2 or 3 mins left and bid a moderate level with no expectations. Win or Lose I wasn't doing any chasing. There was one more bid under mine but I still won the 4 Washies for just $65 plus $8 buyer's fee-- a nice score. Out of curiosity I checked the Price Guides and the 4 coins combined have a $178 list value, so it seems I did well indeed.

Three are nicely toned and the cheaper one ( 1942-P) is white--overall some sweet additions for my album. I haven't cracked them yet, all are solid for the grade so I'm not worried about cracking out over-graded coins which I never do.

The Washington album is rounding out nicely with mostly 3 pages of AU sliders and BU coins. The first page which are the 1930's issues will remain problem-free circulated issues.

 

Happy Hunting E1 and a very Merry Christmas to all.......

In the absence of acceptable raw coins this is a great way to add those attractive uncirculated coins for a great price. It seems that your Washington Quarter collection is coming along nicely.

I checked to see if I had same date coins in NGC holders to trade--a 1937 in NGC 64 was closest.  But I did see a 1941 in an ANACS 63 holder--it's the double die obverse (old FS 12.7).  Do you check for varieties?  Variety finds make my day.  Happy holidays!
