    Senior Momentum!!!

    Luke 15:8&9, New Testament. This has been happening for many years.
  2. nice photos of a tiny coin, 1/2 gram? super research, thanks.
  3. Thank you for your prompt response. friend has an inheritance of early date coins and some WW2 paper, from a Merchant Seaman relative. I know how a lawyer friend feels when i ask for free advice.
  4. A friend has asked me to ask the forum, if anyone knows a comprehensive price list for Phillipines coinage?
  5. I agree with everyone. I have improved my collections as I always have since 1952. But according to CS my collections have deteriorated. I rarely add new purchases to my collection mgr unless they are NGC, even though a couple were finest known, in the wrong holder. As to WHY, there can be only one answer, money. Someday CS will ask "what happened". Must have been the Russians.

    The Beginning

    1 am 72. In 1952 I was fortunate to view the coronation of QE 2. At that time my parents gave me the money to purchase a 9 coin coronation commem Mint set. I still own that set in it's original pkg. I look at that BU Mint set and consider my collection from over the many years. My only regret is that I never seemed to have enough money to spend on coins.
  7. Is it possible to get Variety Plus to recognize an unlisted RPM? If so, how?
  8. I think many coin collectors select coins on the basis of the artistic beauty of an individual specimen. Some of those people believe that two coins should never touch each other, (contact marks). I still remember the first time I saw a BU Merc. "Diffrent strokes 4 diffrent folks".
  9. many consider the 40D to be a better date. Might have to pay above melt for that example.
  10. The nicest example of that variety that i have ever seen. makes me wish i knew how to send pictures.
  11. An interesting history lesson in the form of numismatics. Apparent substantial research. Claudius impressive?
  12. i was told 18 years ago, "there is no such thing as an unsearched role of Wheat cents". 1909 S VDB, 1914 D, 1955 DDO. I believe it.
  13. does anyone have knowledge of this RPM? have owned this coin since 3/25/10. was sold to me as a RPM by Heritage auctions with a clear D/D, four serifs visible. pcgs graded MS63, # 04674727, but not attributed. Walter Breen says he has heard of this RPM but that is the only information i have been able to garner. Thanks for any help. Not a newbie, just ignorant.
  14. ? the planchette does not look like a SF coin of the 19 th century. but i'm no expert.
  15. i have an old cherrypickers guide, vol 4, 2001 that has an excellent section on Jeffersons and buffs varieties but only goes to 1968. i believe that a newer version has been printed. great diagnostics. 100X? some prefer a 10x or 5x. if it takes a 100 times magnification to see, then it might be questionable.
