  1. I’m happy to answer that. I am not completely consumed by things. It’s obvious that I have a busy life with many interests. I’m in the process of restoring my 1972s Porsche 911. I work 10 hours a day. I won’t pay today a prices for coins. I think grading companies are way to inconsistent so I no longer participate. I want to sell the coins I have but I can’t take good pictures. I’m going to try a good old fashioned camera. It’s obvious I don’t know how to use my phone camera. They need to be seen in person to really be appreciated. I have gone to two dealers here in Ma. They both tried the sam
  2. Yea it is what it is. I’ve had these coins 40 years and I never cleaned them. That’s really what I mean who knows what’s happened before. The things I have heard that have been done in this hobby make it a suckers bet now. Hell you can have an undetectable rare coin made. Maybe even one from the 1700’s. A rare variety. Whatever you want. Where there is money there is corrupt people. It’s so easy to see now. It was t like this before. Bunch of greedy principals now.
  3. Your absolutely correct. I just have so many of them. I pulled out 20 additional coins today. I did not realize how many double eagles I had. I was buying them for $282 each. I bought 14 in a three year span. I just love them. I have a guy for gold coins he pays a nice premium. I even got a mint gold Rolex Prez in trade. So it cost me $846! If I could go back to 70’s again I would have put every dollar I made into buying double eagles. Oh wait a minute. I should say I’m glad when I was a teenager instead of blowing my dough on weed and beer like all my friends I would have bought double eag
  4. Everyone talks about getting stuff graded but they also complain it takes to long. Am I right?
  5. And here’s mine. The suckiest picture. I need to learn how to take coin pictures. It has
  6. It’s funny you mention them. I have a small California gold piece. I couldn’t find anything similar. They are on my list of websites to check out. low and behold look what’s there-
  7. I’m going to sell some of these coins. See how it goes and go from there. I think it’s possible to use FaceTime to het a real life look at the coin. Move it around under different light. Questions can be asked. The technology on these phones makes it less of a challenge to sell a coin and have the person buying it know what they are getting. When I put a couple up in the BST will be when I have imaging sorted out.
  8. I’m not going to even look but take a legitimate guess. 1794? I don’t use the red book I prefer the PCGS app. I was thinking of getting the NGC but I will wait for it to improve. From the reviews it’s not very good.
  9. I’d love to get them graded but man I don’t have the time or patience. What I need is someone who lived near me in 01844 who is honest to look at them and be fair. I know what they are. Trying to take pictures is a real PIA. I’m going to try a video. Just one.
  10. It was directed at nobody in specific. However, if you feel a reason for you to feel it may have been directed towards you there needs to be a reason. I can assure you that it was not. It’s really this simple. I’m new here but I’m not a child. Wherever I go I can recognize when someone is being rude, overly critical and just plain mean. In this great country I am also entitled to my opinion. I did give everyone some good advice. You can be reported as a bully and you will be looked at. This country is changing and it’s not all good. They have a file on all of us. Just ask Johnathan Snowden.
  11. I just don’t think my images are very good. It has occurred to me immediately that we have some nice guys here. I also have noticed there are a few people who are rude and take pleasure in there hoping to hurt another person pleasure by insults. Why be like that? This coin is not cleaned. I know it’s not for a fact. It’s just lousy images but you took advantage of that to make another person you don’t know feel like you are a dominating force. Do you know that the sign of a psychopath or some kind of a mental illness. I want to look back and check out your post see if this is your MO. If
  12. You. An always PM me. This coin is a sweet RB problem free. Totally BU . 100 real. When you get it and if you aren’t happy send it back. Probably shouldn’t post this here. I won’t do it again. It just led to this.
  13. I know I’m new here but I can jump in on this one. I need to get one of my coins graders. This one is so original I believe. I don’t know about doubling. If you guys can see anything from my lousy pictures please tell me. I’d love to know. I’m going to take a good long look. Im going to sell all my coins because I need money. This might be my hardest to let go off
  14. I pulled my coins out the other day. I have a few things in one of the boxes in my SDB. I had 10 coins written on this box. So I pulled out 10 coins. I’m getting ready to sell them but dragging my feet. They are hard to part with. Anyhow. I went back into the box to look at the receipts. Wrapped in a receipt was number 11. I had no idea it was in there. What do you guys think if it? I played with the reflection a little.

This might be my hardest to let go off. I will probably sell them raw. But I didn’t post to advertise. I wanted to add one of my favorites.
