  1. Besides Walkers; I always liked the 'Grand Watermelon note'. I think it sold for a couple of million dollars. Graded about new 50.
  2. Got these at a local sale for around melt.
  3. I don't think that I ever shared this one over here. Picked up about a month ago....
  4. Doubtful. It would make zero sense to restore the registry only to scuttle it once again.
  5. Even an expert can feel like a 'Dummy' by paying up, in the current market, for a much needed coin.
  6. Nice slider! It has 'the look'. It's nice that you purchased it together. It will certainly have a special place in your collection from now on in.
  7. I am VERY happy about it but it does seem redundant, now that the all inclusive NGC Registry is back. I was wondering what will set it (ANA Registry) apart from the NGC Registry? Can someone from NGC please chime in and explain the strategic plan here? Thank You.
  8. As usual, a fantastic report. Thank you for taking the time to write this and put this together. I always enjoy reading these.
  9. My bad for not understanding your comment. Now that you explain it better, it makes more sense. Custom sets are indeed a different animal and are not strictly point driven. Thank you for clarifying.
  10. I liked some of the Franklin Mint products. RIP, Joe. Condolences to the family.
  11. Peoples Choice awards aren't a bad idea, however, I don't think that annual set updates make sense nor should be a priority. If you worked hard, sometimes for many years, and have a very high-scoring set, then you should be rewarded. Besides, in many instances, it is difficult to improve on an already top-tier set. Plus, it gives the trailing set owners something to shoot for.
  12. I won THREE for 2019!! I won Best in Category for the 5th year in a row for my One Per Date Walker Set. I won Best in Category for the 2nd year in a row and 3rd year overall for my Early Walker Set. And MUCH to my surprise; I also won NGC Best in Category, as well, for my Early Walker set. This happened with the addition of my 1921 NGC MS 65, which was worth 6453 points and put me in the lead. Since 2010; I've won 10 Registry awards, including Best Presented in 2013, and I couldn't be prouder or happier. Thanks NGC!!!! You ROCK!!!
