      Try the new NGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      NGC has launched a new and improved NGC Journals! Available on NGCcoin.com, the new NGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new NGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the NGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old NGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the NGC website. Old NGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new NGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new NGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new NGC Journals or go to the new NGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!

        Click Add Journal Entry to add a post to your journal

        Commenting on another user's Journal is easy. After selecting a journal to read, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the field where you may enter your comments and see the comments others have posted.

  2. Newcomer here and I am looking to buy the 2016 Silver John Kennedy Half Dollar and Silver Franklin Roosevelt Dime NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo if anyone has these to sell Thanks for your time William
  3. Hi, can any please help me to fine the pop list. Since that change this I can not fine any thing, I only hope that I can fine your Nasser. Thanks don
  4. Your coin appears to me to be the small date variety. It is also missing two of the identifiers found on the large date variety. Coagman: I do not disagree. When I sent it to PCGS, I was convinced-- from my comparison of the same markers you looked at-- it was a Small Date and was quite surprised (and still dubious) it was designated Large Date. But who am I to question the almightly authority of PCGS (!?) Seriously, were I to get down to brass tacks in selling this coin, I would let any buyer know of my doubts. Thanks again, Mike

  6. Hi Mike, I am happy to read that you found my comments useful. I find the story of the Fort Capron Treasury hoard interesting and for me it enhances the fun of owning such a coin, even if it can’t be definitely traced to the hoard. I once owned an 1856-S $20 with saltwater surfaces. Like your coin, it had the same matte-like granular surface texture and was free of bag marks and abrasions. I am somewhat surprised that these coins are not more in demand considering the popularity of the gold coins from the 3 major shipwrecks. The large date variety makes up approx 15% of 1854 double eagles, and the differences between the small and large date variety can be challenging to distinguish if you don’t have a lot of experience with the series. Your coin appears to me to be the small date variety. It is also missing two of the identifiers found on the large date variety. Sorry to be the bearer of this bad news, but it is still a cool coin.
  7. Rick - sorry to hear about your wife. Sounds like an ordeal. Hope tht you are not exiting the hobby by selling everything. You've added some to the conversations here. Best of luck.
  8. I have an NGC 70 2011 (w) PM with offer if you like. I don't think they were a big seller early on, now registryguys can't find them.
  9. Coagman: A sincere thanks for furthering this discussion by pointing out the possibility of the Ft. Capron hoard as possible (yes, I understand, totally unproven and unprovable) provenance/attribution AND noting but for the inability to establish provenance and the often slight difference in PCGS/NGC rating between a 55/58 and a 62, this might be/have been a 50K coin. Pictures are attached. IMHO, this coin is a stronger strike with less rub, if any, than the NGC 55 Large Date shown on their site. It also has a pleasing matte appearance and would fit in with a high grade or Registery Set of (Early) Liberty $20 Gold Pieces. For the right price, it is for sale to yourself or any other interested party. Thanks again, Mike
  10. We lost a few along the way, yes Michael, EZ_E, daft Dooly and Mike King has not been around. I miss these guys.
  11. If you are doing research, I know that you can arrange to view some of the portions that are not on display. I have not been, but I would really like to. One day, it would be awesome if they could build a dedicated NNC museum....
  12. Whatever happened to michael? I haven't seen that guy around in a while.
  13. Only a small portion of the collection is displayed - it would be nice to view the entire collection - but that will never happen.
  14. Nice - I especially like the half sovereign and half eagle.
  15. I would like to see the National Collection also. When I get time, I would want to know what is there. Back around 1975 we tried to see some of it but were told many were in storage and many others were not there but were in exhibits at other locations such as museums and other such locations.
  16. Completely agree - also love the photo of the older than dirt gang!
  17. Very nice - Charlotte Dude.
  18. Seems to me the 'bar code' adhesive sticker and straps would lend more credence as to where the monster box came from, that a the signed off packing slip inside the box. Course only the certifying company gets to see that first hand in this case.
  19. Bump....please pm if interested. thanks, Chris
  20. I am thinking about making the trek to the Smithsonian to see the National Collection. Since they renovated - has anyone been to the exhibit? If so, what did you think about it? Do they have anything displayed that is not on their web-site? Also - what is their gift shop like? Pure tourist junk or do they have anything for real collectors?
  21. Thanks to all who commented on this post. I have a better understanding on coin collecting, especially with "Moderns". I'll be a little more cautious on buying in the future.
  22. Please post the results when they come back.
  23. It has been a few months since this journal was posted. It seems this place has been converted into a ghost site. With that being the case I bid farewell to all the friends that I have met here over the past 10 years. Sincerely, Rick
  24. The final conclusion is might be mints regular business strike from the polish proof die version of what myself believe However myself decided to send these beautiful silver coin to these company for grading purpose and wait for result Surely come back to show everyone later after receive it again from oversea respect my thought without arguement
  25. Thanks for the info guys. I have a paid account so I'll look into other places to move my images.
  26. I'm in agreement!
