  1. What a cool find. About 40 years ago, I found a 1919 dime in the garden. That's the highlight of my buried treasure finds. Usually it's a rock.
  2. I totally agree. Climate change is real and a huge concern.
  3. Do white spots affect the NGC grade? NGC will factor white spots into its grading of modern silver coins just as it does for black spots on copper coins and red spots on gold coins. Larger and more distracting spots will result in lower grades. Heavily spotted coins may receive an NGC Details Grade with an Environmental Damage notation. The development of white spots after a coin is graded by NGC is not covered under the NGC Guarantee because these white spots occur unpredictably and through no fault of NGC’s.

  4. I always enjoyed reading the posts he used to make here. I don't read posts on CT.
  5. I see @cpm9ball (Chris) hasn't posted here in 5 years. I wonder why?

  7. Looking forward to seeing some pics of these coins.
  8. I'm in the RV for the winter so, i'm not set up to get some good pics. Here's a group shot. I have to pick up a magnifying glass to make out the dates and mint marks. I left mine at home.

  11. 20 USD $25 is the minimum. Although, I would choose the premium account for $149, since you get it all back in credit.
  12. Happy Thanksgiving all. It was just my wife and I this year. Still did the full dinner. Toll House and Pumpkin Pie not pictured.
  13. It's still happening to me as well. Ironically, when there is significant lag here, it happens on the comic forum, too. It's the same format as this site.
  14. Well, I see it as annoying. His last thread stated "I may have"
  15. Well, one's behavior is totally unacceptable, and the other is slightly annoying. I'll choose multiple pics of the same coins over rude and insulting posts any day.
  16. He is ruining the coin forum, insulting people in multiple threads.
  17. I'll choose 1913 D Thanks for hosting the contest.
