    Be Yourself

    Like yourself I started collecting U.S. coins because they are the ones to collect...Don't get me wrong I love these coins but they are getting very expensive now a days especially the late 1700's to mid 1800's and it don't help any that they need to be unc coins either. So I looked into collecting a country that has some meaning to me and since I'm part Icelandic what better then start a collection of Icelandic coins and the best part is that they are so so much cheaper the the U.S. stuff.....
  3. Thank You Gentlemen for the congratulations....Its the most meaningful when it comes from fellow collectors as your self's
  4. When I arrived home today I noticed a thick large padded envelope sitting on the kitchen table that my wife brought in sometime today from the mail box and it was from NGC and thinking what can this be and to my delight it was a plague with my Registry award for my Icelandic Kingdom Era Collection. Was not expecting this at all, maybe a paper certificate. Thank You NGC for this wonderful plaque and I will proudly display it in my home.
  5. Hi Everyone I would like to find a book or internet site/ paper....That may have details about the minting practices of the Denmark Mint for the coins for Iceland , Faroe Islands and of course Denmark it self in the first half of the 20th century. I would greatly appreciate any help...... Gudni
  6. And here is another Icelandic coin I got about two months ago ...A 1926 5 Aurar in MS-66 Bn graded by NGC
  7. Here is one of my latest acquisitions ....A Icelandic 1929 2 Kronur NGC MS-66
  8. That was a wonderful story and gift....Now if only someone in my family would do something like that....wait... my nephew went to Iceland one year and brought back a small jar of Icelandic coins he purchased at a store ...That meant so much to me.
  9. Hi Ali E I just seen the sets you added for Iceland and I made a reply above and would like to make myself better understood. This is what I would like to see in the new registry set for the Republic 1946 to 1980 Coins to be comprised in this set....No Commemorative's or Proofs only coins listed below which are all business strikes meant for circulation. Eyrir 1946,53,56,57,58,59,66 5 Aurar 1946,58,59,60,61,63,65,66 10 Aurar 1946,53,57,58,59,60,61,62,63,65,66,67,69,70,71,73,74, 25 Aurar 1946, 51,54,57,58,59,60,61,62,63,65,66,67 50 Aurar 1969,70,71,73,74 1 Krona 1946,57,59,61,62,63,65,66,69,70,71,73,74,75,76,77,78,80, 2 Kronur 1946,58,62,63,66, 5 Kronur 1969,70,71,73,74,75,76,77,78,80, 10 Kronur 1967,69,70,71,73,74,75,76,77,78,80, 50 Kronur 1968,70,71,73,74,75,76,77,78,80 It would be great to keep the Republic type set you made for people that would like to have a type set like this without having to complete all the years listed above Thanks once more Best Regards Gudni
  10. Hi Ali E Thank you very much. I'm not sure what you meant buy type set in your reply. Just to make certain what I would like is a set that has all the circulating business strikes from 1946 to 1980 with all the years these coins were minted like for instant all the eyrir's and Aurar's and Krona's and all the Kronur's...not just one of each type of coins that was used in circulation. plus no Comm's or Proof's Thank you Best Regards Gudni
  11. Hi.... I would like to know if you can create a Icelandic Republic set from 1946 to 1980 with only business strike issues only with No commemoratives of either silver or gold and no proofs of any kind...Just business struck coins used for circulation with any known varieties. Thank You very much Best Regards Gudni
