    It has been fun.

    I have sold somewhere around half of my collection of coins and bank notes and will sell the rest over the next few weeks. I will not make a profit, nor did I have any prospect of making such - at least not in the monetary sense. I do feel, overall, that I will do very well. I started collecting coins as a means of passing the time and in this respect I have profited greatly. The entertainment provided has been well worth the price of admission. Especially, considering the fact that most of the admission price is redeemable. For ten years of entertainment – I call that a bargain. I paid what I thought each coin and bank note was worth to me - sometimes less but never more. At auction, I expect the bidders to do the same with my coins and bank notes. It would be unreasonable to expect otherwise. Great Collections was my choice of venue because I believe, for my particular coins and bank notes, it was the best option available. If I had coins and bank notes worth tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars my choice of auction venue may have been different. These message boards have also been a great source of entertainment for me. If I have offended anyone over the past few years, I hope you will accept my sincere apologies.
  6. Here is the first installment of bank notes I am selling at Great Collections. The auction ends on Sunday 10/8/17.

  7. Capitalistic and socialistic concepts become corrupt when the human element is added to the equation. Both are workable in theory but not in practice. Our propensity for corruption has no bounds.

    NGC Marketplace

    How do you get hyper-links to work in the marketplace. Never mind, it seems to be working now.
  11. It is as it should be. People are willing to pay for what they want. There is no correct price for a given coin, anymore than there is a correct grade for a given coin.
  12. All nice quarters! I particularly like the S.
  13. Without the potential for profit, coin collecting returns to its base existence as a means to alleviate idleness and as an academic pursuit. This latter state of coin collecting is the foundation, upon which the former was constructed. It is also the more sustainable of the two, and will likely abide for many, many years to come. I was attracted to coin collecting by both of these states, to alleviate boredom and also as a means to save money. While the latter meant I would not save as much money has I would have via other investments, I have never been satisfied with the sterile accumulation of money. I am presently in the process of selling my collection of coins and bank notes. I do not expect to make a profit on either, but the entertainment I received collecting them has provided more than adequate compensation.
  14. I believe it is more likely that the future of coin collecting will be shaped by the potential for profit. If you want to predict the future of coin collecting (Will it be in US coinage or foreign coinage?) the prospect for financial gain will be the determining factor. Any desirable commodity inspires designs of potential profit, but it is the commodity that produces the most profit potential that thrives. When it comes to coin collecting the hook that pulls in the most fish is the potential for profit, not the actual realization of the same, and this hook determines which country’s coinage garners the most attention, and which coin type and which attribution.
  15. Nice Franklins! Some nice colors.
