  1. Update-the 1939 5 Groszy and the 1981-S Type 2 Lincoln in PF 69 have sold and the links have been removed. Thanks So Much!!
  2. Hello again everyone! I've recently gotten some new items in stock and listed up on Ebay, so it's time for a brand new, fresh sales thread!!! As always, we'll start with NGC graded items first. Do you need a 1981-S Type 2 Anthony Dollar for your collection? Well, I have five of them, all NGC PF 69 Ultra Cameo. They can be seen here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/112485772182?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/122603847334?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/122603848051?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/112485774771?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/122603850485?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Next, I have a 1981-S Type 2 Lincoln Cent, a PF 66 Red Ultra Cameo. The PF 66 is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/112485781172?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Next up, I still have this 1979-S Type 2 Anthony Dollar in perfect PF 70 Ultra Cameo. If you're a Registry collector seeking perfection, here it is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/122566826442?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 And here we have a gorgeous 1972-S Kennedy Half Dollar in PF 69 Star Cameo. The only way to get better on this coin is a PF 69 Ultra Cameo. This coin is much more affordable than an Ultra Cameo and is just as gorgeous: http://www.ebay.com/itm/112457542361?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Now or some raw items. I still have some raw 1979-S Type 2 coins in stock. I have some Lincoln Cents, Jefferson Nickels, Roosevelt Dimes, Washington Quarters and one bargain priced Anthony Dollar available. The cents are here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/112457802808?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 The nickels are here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/122592438973?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 The dimes are here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/112457793093?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 And here's the bargain priced Anthony dollar. It is bargain priced due to reverse scratches: http://www.ebay.com/itm/112485767501?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I also still have some 1981-S Type 2 Jefferson Nickels and Roosevelt Dimes. The nickels are here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/122559239818?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 and the dimes are here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/112473811934?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 and I have one 1976-S Type 1 Clad Proof Eisenhower Dollar here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/122603855590?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 And that's all for now! As per the usual, I'm taking offers on everything, so please send them! The worst I can do is say no. More often than not though, we'll make a deal. I also know that some of you on here dislike using Ebay. That's ok. If you have a PayPal account, we can complete the sale though here. Just PM me here. My Ebay feedback is excellent and my stuff on here always sells and I haven't had any complaints yet, so there's no risk. I take returns on anything I sell. As always, I thank you all for checking out my sales threads and for buying from me. I really do appreciate every single view and sale!! Until Next Time... Best Regards ~Tom
  3. Thanks Rick! It's always good to hear from you, my friend. Speaking of life taking funny twists and turns.......with the help of my significant other, I have actually come up with a new coin collecting project that I'm now very excited about that I think will fit well with my other interests. Talking to her often shows me new paths, something I highly value in our relationship. It's a set that will soon be going up on the Custom Set side of our fine Registry. And yes, I have been doing well with the Type 2's.....I'm fortunate in getting great opportunities to purchase them at prices that are fair to the seller but leave me room for nice profit as well. I actually make most of my profit by grading, but I do alright with raw coins too. I'm planning on expanding into some Modern World coins as well with my selling.....it'd be fun, make me a few bucks and give me a chance to piggyback some coins for my new project in NGC submissions. So what are you up to these days? Still chasing moderns? I hope so......I like seeing great collectors staying active in the Modern side of things!! It's my favorite part of the hobby! Best Regards ~Tom
  4. Agreed. Refocusing isn't bad at all. Lately, my main activity in coins has been selling and buying and grading for resale. I haven't been very active in collecting at all aside from some Canadian Whitman folder sets that I'm putting together from buying generic 80% Canadian Silver for bullion ( I like to have a little bullion around and the Whitman folders make it more fun!). I've been doing other things. I've rediscovered my artistic side ( I was an art student once upon a time) and I've actually been doing a lot with that lately. It's been nice to reconnect with a part of myself and an area of interest that I haven't pursued since right after high school. There's nothing wrong with stepping back and reassessing what direction you want to move in. It'll happen naturally given the right amount of time and thought. That's my plan right now. I know that I'll likely always be a seller of coins. I enjoy that greatly and it funds my hobbies. Right now, it's just funding my art projects and other collectibles rather than my coin collection. I may never get back to active coin collecting, and I'm actually ok with that. Life is a funny thing, and offers up a lot of roads. It'd be a shame not to walk down those roads just to keep going in one interest. Enjoy your hiatus and refocusing!! ~Tom
  5. mint error

    Hi Dean, Welcome to the forums. Sadly, I have some not so great news for you. The error 1977-D Kennedy Half Dollars that the Redbook refers to are Silver Clad or 40% Silver, the same composition that was originally used for half dollars from 1965-1970. In 1976, the San Francisco Mint produced special Silver Clad/40% Silver Bicentennial Sets for sale to collectors. These sets contained silver clad examples of the Bicentennial quarter, half dollar and dollar. Typically, at this time, the San Francisco Mint produced Proof Sets in the standard metals for sale to collectors along with Lincoln Cents for circulation, though these have no mintmarks after 1975 to distinguish them as SF products. I read years ago (sadly I cannot remember the exact source) that it was standard procedure at this time for the San Francisco Mint to send planchets (coinage blanks) that they deemed unsuitable for Proof coinage to the Denver Mint for use in circulation coinage. Now, the San Francisco Mint was only supposed to send planchets of the standard composition (copper-nickel clad in the case of dimes, quarters, halves, dollars) to Denver for this purpose. However, at some point, some of the silver clad planchets from the special Bicentennial sets were sent to Denver in error. These weren't caught by Denver Mint employees either and the Silver Clad 1977-D Kennedy Half was born. There are similar errors for 1974-D, 1976_D and 1977-D Eisenhower Dollars and for 1971-D Kennedy Half Dollars. Now, all of these errors are very rare. From your photos, you just have regular copper-nickel clad Kennedy Halves in circulated condition. They are only worth face value. I would definitely not grade them. If they have a special meaning to you or you just like them, by all means hold onto them, but if they don't, just spend them. I hope this helps even if the news isn't great. ~Tom
