  1. Is the Clad Quarter Market Strong?

    Clads of the early 1980s were very poorly made. Further, they are quickly deteriorating due to improper storage and die grease coatings. Streaks, spots, and corrosion are the norm. Every year, fewer of these supposedly hiding coins will qualify for high grades.
  2. Is this a dropped letter or mint mark

    This is post-mint damage to the 2, and it happens to resemble a deformed S.
  3. All $75 Face in junk silver SOLD Thanks for looking!
  4. Post your most recent ancient acquisition!!!

    This appears to be a Roman Bronze Sestertius of Emperor Galba (68-69 AD).
  5. Oops - Mechanical Error

    I recommend pointing out the specific lot numbers to Mark Feld of these boards, who works for Heritage. He has successfully intervened in the past when I've seen misidentified lots.
  6. Conder Collectors - Post Your Images

    Thanks for the information, Chris and Conder101! I did see the $75 digital D&H available, but it does sound like it is nothing but a remix of the 1910 original. I don't know if D&H contains the type of information I need. I'm seeking information on Proof Conders; i.e., how they can be differentiated from business strikes, whether anyone referenced them in the early days (1790s-early 1800s), and whether they are really Proofs, at all. If you remember any specific sections of D&H that mention Proofs, or any other books, let me know! Yarm has added some recommendations in another thread.
  7. World and Ancient Library Recommendations

    Thanks for the information, Yarm! I will have to look over some of these books for information on Proof Conders; i.e., how they can be differentiated from business strikes, whether anyone referenced them in the early days (1790s-early 1800s), and whether they are really Proofs, at all. If you remember any specific books or sections I could zero in on, let me know! It sounds like Doty's "The SOHO Mint and the Industrialization of Money" is the place to start.

    Does anyone know the best way to access the complete D&H reference for Conder tokens, i.e., is there a printed book available and/or is the complete book available online somewhere? Also, are there any good references on Conder tokens besides D&H? In particular, I am seeking information on Proof Conder tokens as well. Thanks!
  9. 1799 GIII Half Penny

    Minting technology was decades ahead of the U.S. in this time period. The British copper of 1799 in particular are nicer than U.S. coinage into the 1840s.

  11. Post your favorite coin purchase of 2017

    If you click on the Filters tab at the top right of your Census page, you can select Star and it will show you the Star population. NGC has graded 17 in MS67RB and an addition 10 in MS67*RB. None are graded higher.
  12. 1837 SOLD! Thanks for looking!
  13. Post your favorite coin purchase of 2017

    I was not aware of this site, thanks for the link. I'm still not not sure that this medal is silver-plated. It looks very much like copper, but you have a better view of it than the NGC pictures provide. However, Silver plated coins that have oxidized are not eligible for RD, RB and BN designations, so there is something wrong. Screenshot of https://www.ngccoin.com/certlookup/3259600-002/63/ :
  14. Error? Help please!!!

    Unfortunately, this piece appears to be damaged. through blunt force. The obverse is hammered flat, while the reverse received scrapes form whatever it was up against.
