  1. His 1929-S Walker MS 66 is phenomenally gorgeous and his 1940-S Walker MS 67+ is likely the finest known example. His 1938-D Walker MS 67+ is not bad, either.
  2. Thanks. That's exactly what I'm talking about. I will not begrudge someone trying to own the finest known. Also, I can assuredly appreciate the beauty and conditional scarcity but the difference in quality vs. price just does not make sense to me. My set was constructed at my optimal grade level and I am perfectly happy with it. However, I have nothing but respect and admiration for the new number one set. Everyone has their own collecting strategy and goals. Although my coins are lower grade, they were hand-selected and cherry-picked by me. To me, that's more fun and has more potential for profit than buying a coin that is already maxed out.
  3. It has been a very good run for me, as I have won Best in Category overall for the last 5 Years, in the One per Date category. I have been overtaken by two new Registry participants and am now number three. I urge you to check them out, especially, the #1 position. I have the link posted below. His coins are simply amazing and in very, very high grade and high quality. He is 100% complete and he has a 1934 S in NGC Mint State 67 * !!! He has over 125,000 registry points in this One per Date category and there is, absolutely, no way that I would want to compete with that. He is also #1, now, in the 65-coin Walker Full Set category. My hat is off to you, Sir....I want to take this opportunity to say 'Congratulations'! The torch has been passed. P.S.- My 1919 D is still better than yours!

  4. I think you're out of luck. Slab it yourself or enjoy as is.
  5. Sad but not surprising. I am hoping to go to a show in late October. I will be severely disappointed, if it is cancelled, as well.
  6. If you mean the journals here on this site; I don't think that you can change it.
  7. Obviously, I like the Walker and the Standing Liberty is a close second. I collect BOTH. If forced to choose a third from the options given; I'd pick the Buffalo Nickel. I like Morgans better than Buffs, however, but they came a bit earlier, of course.
  8. Hi James!!! Glad you're back!! I have noticed some STRONG prices but only in select areas.
  9. You left out Herman McNeil, which is probably my very favorite. Then Saint Gaudens, Gobrecht and Longacre, in that order. All are stunning in their own way.
  10. Weinman was a student of St. Gaudens, so he was heavily influenced by him, anyway. Their work bears a lot of similarities. I like them BOTH.
  11. Maybe someone will find a rare variety or make a top pop! It has certainly happened before.
  12. Some very well-known and long time posters got axed over there, this week, and it got very ugly. They don't tolerate political agendas well, over there, as it is not coin related, and it became very abusive and discriminatory towards certain groups. Honestly, I don't blame them, as it doesn't reflect well on PCGS, especially, in these turbulent times. Although, I will miss the members who had a momentary lapse of reason....It is very unfortunate. I post a lot over there but the NGC forums was and is my first home.
