  1. The U.S. coin that found in phillipines.

    I apologize if I came off abrupt or rude here.......I really try not to do that but I see how what I wrote could sound that way. Sorry to all if I did.
  2. The U.S. coin that found in phillipines.

    Well, I have some bad news for you. You won't be able to sell them anywhere because they are all fakes. First off, there was never a US Trade Dollar made dated 1797. US Trade Dollars were minted from 1873 to 1885. As for the two 1804 dated pieces, they both look like fakes of the 1804 US Silver Dollar in different metals. The 1804 Silver Dollar is one of the premier rarities in all of US coinage with I believe 15 specimens known. You would never find one randomly for sale. All of your pieces are poorly struck and all appear to be made of base metal alloys and the designs do not look correct. I'd say that they are Chinese counterfeits.
  3. Update-I'm out of 1979 S Type 2 Anthony Dollars for the moment and I've updated all links. I'll be getting some graded items in stock soon, so keep an eye out for those. Thanks So Much!!
  4. Update-The Proof Philippine 1983 1 Piso has sold and the link has been removed. Thanks So Much!!
  5. Update-Everything is updated and some new coins have been added. Sorry I took so long to update this once again, I've been super busy with my current class (Higher Education Finance)and I was waiting for some new items to come in before I updated....I wanted to get it all updated at one time. Thanks So Much!!
  6. Is the Clad Quarter Market Strong?

    That is so true Cladking. And about those collections that younger collectors will inherit.....I actually doubt that the younger generation of collectors will actually want such collections. If they don't like full sets of Morgan dollars now, what will they think when such a thing gets dropped on them, for want of a better term. And what about a non-collector inheriting a full set of Morgans or any other US Classic? I think that the long term trends for US Classics are looking like downward price corrections. Many of these sets will be sold off, and all within a similar timeframe.......no demand with a lot of supply....bad news pricewise. I guess like yourself Cladking, I'll have to wait and see if my projections are correct
  7. I think i have a rare 1982

    Actually, there is a rare 1982-D Copper Cent but it has to be a 1982-D Small Date that is also of the copper composition weighing 3.1 grams. A copper 1982-D Large Date or any of the 1982 Philadelphia Cents are nothing special. Here's a site that shows the difference in the dates: http://www.lincolncentresource.com/smalldates/1982.html The reason a 1982-D Small Date copper cent is a big deal is that it's a coin that is not supposed to exist. According to the US Mint, all of the 1982-D Small Date cents are zinc. But there are a very small number that were minted on leftover copper planchets from earlier in the year. A 1982-D Small Date Copper cent is a transitional error, like a 1943 Copper cent or a 1944 Steel cent. Any 1982 cent aside from a 1982-D Small Date copper is nothing special. I hope this helps! Good Luck! ~Tom
  8. Is the Clad Quarter Market Strong?

    Interesting discussion guys! But I thought I may chime in here with some things I've noticed that will likely impact pricing for clads and other circulating moderns. The first is changing modes of collecting among collectors of the Millennial generation (according to my research for my Doctor of Education program, birth year range from 1980 to 1996). Being born in 1980, I'm one of the first Millennials and I know some collectors in my age group, quite a few actually. One thing that collectors in this age group do not seem to do in any large numbers is series collect. I do not know of any Millennial collectors that series collects in any sort of serious way. I'm sure there are some who do, but I haven't met them. Collectors in my generational group couldn't seem to care less about having a full set of anything, be it Morgan Dollars or Clad Washingtons. Most collectors in this age range either collect by type or they collect thematically. I myself collect coins with birds and other dinosaurs on them. One of the employees at my favorite coin shop, who is in his early 30's, collects coins with ships on them. My girlfriend, who is 29, is thinking of starting a collection of outer space and sci-fi themed coins. Going back to my favorite coin shop, the owner's son, who is the other main employee, is working on a US Type Set. And talking with the guys at the shop, and employees at other shops, they have noticed the same thing. Thematic and type collecting is on the rise among collectors of the Millennial generation and I can't even say series collecting is on the decline among collectors of this generation because I don't feel that it was ever a big thing with many collectors of this age group. I myself tried my hand at series collecting in my younger years and found it less than satisfying. Also, when I was series collecting, I was an oddball among collectors in my age group. No one my age or younger got why I was doing it, and spending serious money on it. Eventually, I realized I agreed with them and gave series collecting up, which was a good move for me as I enjoy thematic collecting better. However, there are still plenty of collectors who are of different generations that are keeping series collecting alive. However, that is not to say that series collecting doesn't happen at all among younger collectors, however it is not where the younger collector's main financial resources go. Many younger collectors I know that search rolls and pocket change do build sets in Whitman folders. I do this myself with Canadian Small Cents and other Canadian denominations out of my 80% Silver bullion purchases. But I certainly do not spend serious money on it. The cents are all found in rolls or in circulation. I have about 19 spots in my two Whitman folders to fill, and if I find them in my circulation hunting, great. But if I don't, I certainly do not plan to go spending money that I could use for my thematic dinosaur collection on buying a 1985 Pointed 5 Cent or a 1947 Blunt 7 Maple Leaf cent. It's a fun project, but its fun in the parameters of low cost and a lack of seriousness. It's not something I would ever start spending serious money on. But I do spend serious funds on my thematic collection, both in buying coins and grading them so I can share them on here. Going back to the clad Washingtons, I'd say that's probably what is happening to a lot of the coins Cladking was talking about. They're going into people's not very serious, just for fun Whitman folder collections. However, does this mean that these coins will rise in value from these Whitman folder collectors moving into a serious, high-grade series collection of Washington Quarters? I'd say no, not unless the collecting tastes of younger collectors change which I highly doubt will happen. I can't predict the future, so I cannot say it definitely will not happen at some point, but I honestly cannot think of what would spur that kind of a change. As far as younger collectors, from what I've observed, NCLT is king. There are so many beautiful and amazing coins coming from the mints all over the world that push the limits of technology, offer diverse themes, and offer a beauty beyond what most regular circulation coins can offer. I see many series collectors complain about the large number of issues, but I think the mints are evolving to survive and that means catering to the tastes of the younger generation of collectors. If you look at the large number of NCLT issues from a series collector mindset, the mindset of needing to have everything, it IS frustrating. But if you look at this diversity from a thematic collector's standpoint, it's exciting! There's a few new things for your thematic collection coming out every year from a variety of mints, allowing for amazing diversity within a thematic collection, allowing one to construct a truly unique collection. I'd say the mints are evolving with the tastes of the younger generation and the younger generation is continuing to collect in ways that allow them to make the most of collecting the NCLT issues they enjoy. So I agree with you World Colonial. I do not think high grade Clad Washingtons will ever have their day. Series collecting is declining among younger collectors and compared to the NCLT issues that most younger collectors enjoy now, a Clad Washington is very bland and boring. The Gen X and Baby Boomer collectors who do series collect view them with disdain because they have no silver content and extremely high mintages while Millennial and Gen Z collectors view them with disdain because they are bland and boring compared to NCLT along with having almost no interest in serious series collecting. So the clad Washington loses on both sides.
  9. Update-The 1979-S Anthony in PF 69, the 1981-S Type 2 Lincoln in PF 68 have sold and the links have been removed. I have also added several new items, including some rare 1983 Philippine Proof Singles! Sorry that this update is so late in coming. The 1983 Philippine Proof Set was coming from Australia and I wanted to wait for it to arrive as I knew I'd be adding most of it to this thread. Thanks So Much!!
  10. Is this a dropped letter or mint mark

    It could also be a die gouge that has a shape similar to an S. Just a thought. As far as a misplaced mintmark, I doubt it. As you said JKK, the mintmarks were on the reverse, so it would be logical to conclude that one would not find its way to the obverse. People at the Mint make mistakes, no doubt, but I doubt a mistake like that would happen. It's just too big of a blunder.
  11. 2017 S ASE

    Yes, that is correct. From 1986 to 1992, all proof ASE's were made at San Francisco and carried the S mintmark. From 1993-2000, all of the proofs aside from the 1995-W were struck at Philadelphia and had a P mintmark. And in 2001, the duty of striking the standard proof ASE's was transferred to West Point, but as we all know from all of these special sets and offerings, Proof ASE's are made all over the place now, based on what the US Mint thinks it can sell.
  12. 2017 S ASE

    As far as I know, that is incorrect. Only the 2017-W was sold by itself. The 2017-S was only in the Limited and Congratulations set. Later this year, there will be a 2018-S ASE sold by itself but the 2017-S wasn't.
  13. Update-The 1981-S Type 2 Dollar in PF 69 and the 1981-S Type 2 Raw singles have sold and the links have been removed. All of the links have been updated as well. Thanks So Much!!
  14. There we go......now the right link is there!! Department meeting notes and sales thread creation don't mix!! I've also sold the 1970-S Small Date in PF 67 Red. Thanks So Much and sorry for any confusion!!
  15. Oops!! Looks like I made a mistake copying and pasting there. I was getting ready for a department meeting at the college where I'm an adjunct while I was doing this the other night! Sorry about that and thanks Rick for posting the correct link!
