    Learning the Ropes
  1. Nice Pick Ups for the Semi-keys

    The nicest example of that variety that i have ever seen. makes me wish i knew how to send pictures.
  2. Roman Empire, Page 4 = DECADENCE

    An interesting history lesson in the form of numismatics. Apparent substantial research. Claudius impressive?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. New here... is this worth grading

    ? the planchette does not look like a SF coin of the 19 th century. but i'm no expert.
  6. Finding Possible Errors

    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.
  7. variety price guide?

    thanks again physics-fan. it was kind of you to provide the info and links. i think you are correct about 1965. the year our coinage was debased. i would rather invest in an upgrade, than spend precious funds on on a book. a fatal flaw in collecting, it is said. The F/S books have paid for for themselves many times over. i am thinking about selling a collection with several varieties and errors and was hoping to fix a price in my mind for the total. perhaps the best route would be to sell the varieties separate. anyway thanks again for your time.
  8. variety price guide?

    thank you physics-fanpi for your response. the book looked helpful but a 10 year old price guide? i already own a 1965 red book, hard bound. it's fun to peruse when i need it. i guess as far as prices go; just see what the market says, and hope for the best.
  9. variety price guide?

    thank you skippy for your response. my cherry pickers has been very helpful in identification, but not so much in pricing. perhaps too many variables.
  10. variety price guide?

    thank you conder for your response. just hoping there might be one that i didn't know about. maybe something for a future numismatic writer.
  11. does anyone know of a price guide especially for varieties and errors?
  12. it is my understanding that Queen Elisabeth ll issued a 9 coin, Coronation commemorative Mint set in 1952, dated 1953.
  13. the Scottish crest looks the nicer of the two.

    I agree with your remarks about colors needed to be called rainbow toned. I have also seen White coins with a Rainbow colored tone due to the iridescence of sunlight on the fresh appearing patina. Some have also called that effect, Rainbow toning.
