  1. I have to agree - that's one of the prettiest commems I've seen in a long time! Sattlers - I remember going there in the 60's. There was a Grants department store in Lockport that used to have coins in a carousel that you could spin...that brings back memories
  2. I really like the waves of color progression through Liberty's hair...gorgeous dollar!
  3. My package (USPS Tracking #9506 1123 5692 9040 2691 55) was shown as delivered to NGC on 2/11, but it still doesn't show when I look at submission status. When should I expect to see it there? Thanks
  4. Thanks for sharing about the coin shop in Shortsville - it's not too far from me and looks like it would be a great place to pay a visit to. My wife and I have stayed at several B&B's around Canandaigua and like to go antiquing to places like the Ontario Mall Antiques and other smaller places. Sometime you luck into coins, but typically we find other things that we collect together. It's a great area to visit - and, what's better is all the wineries (and now craft breweries) that dot the Finger Lakes. Awesome area to spend a long weekend!
  5. Tom - I was reading this thread when I realized you're not located too far from me depending upon where you are in the Finger Lakes. Small world indeed!
  6. Congrats on getting the 66 from NGC on your quarter. As I've submitted over the years and have taken my knocks - and learned in the process - I've become much more selective in what I submit.
  7. I submitted an order consisting of 5 coins - 3 Jeffersons and 2 Roosies - for strike designation consideration. 3 of them had it added...good so far. Here's the issue: all 5 coins were re-slabbed and retained their original cert #. However, when I add them to my registry sets, if I use the original cert # the strike designation isn't included...instead I have to use the new submission number that I used to send them in along with -001, -002, etc. to have the strike designation recognized. Can you correct this in your database to show the original cert numbers with the strike designation?
  8. Take #2. Images don't do justice to the actual coin.
  9. I'm clearing out some more duplicates and am listing them here first before trying anywhere else. Along with the date and mint mark, the assigned NGC value is listed before the amount I would like to get for each coin. After checking several other venues where similarly graded coins are available these are priced lower than any I've found. While the images are representative of the coins being offered the images are nowhere near the high-end quality of those exhibited by others. The white balance has been adjusted and the image cropped but there has been no other juicing. Payment is via Paypal, shipping is free, and you have a week to return for full refund, no questions asked, so long as the slab isn't damaged in any way. Thanks for looking and coins will be added as time permits! Here are 3 Mercs in early generation slabs with each coin exhibiting different amounts of toning. 1942 Mercury Dime, PCGS rattler slab MS65FB - NGC Value: $48 - Asking price: $35 1942-D Mercury Dime, NGC no-line fatty slab MS66FB - NGC Value: $60 - Asking price: $45 1943-D Mercury Dime, NGC no-line fatty slab MS65FB - NGC Value: $45 - Asking price: $32 Take all three for $101
  10. I'm clearing out some duplicates and am listing them here first before trying anywhere else. Along with the date and mint mark the assigned NGC value is listed before the amount I would like to get for each coin. After checking several other venues where similarly graded coins are available these are priced significantly lower than any I've found. While the images are representative of the coins being offered the images are nowhere near the high-end quality of those exhibited by others. The white balance has been adjusted and the image cropped but there has been no other juicing. Even though the steps may not appear complete in the reverse images of the nickels they truly are five full step examples. Shipping is free and you have a week to return for full refund, no questions asked, so long as the slab isn't damaged in any way. Thanks for looking and coins will be added as time permits! 1948-D Roosevelt Dime, NGC MS67 Full Torch - NGC Value: $190 - Asking price: Sold 1953-D Jefferson Nickel, NGC MS65 5 Full Steps - NGC Value: $415 - Asking price: Traded 1956 Jefferson Nickel, NGC MS66 5 Full Steps - NGC Value: $450 - Asking price: Sold
  11. Great pix and sweet error! Do you have more complete images of both sides that you can share?
  12. Agree with this comment from Physics-Fan: Phone cameras are often good enough these days to take decent pictures So long as the lighting is good an iPhone does a pretty good job and the results look sharp.
  13. How about old cigar box labels? The stone lithography could be pretty artistic and the subject matter makes for a nice collecting diversion.
  14. PM sent with images of several toned MS Jefferson nickels.
