  1. Before 2015 it was a mess...prices all off the charts, too high, too low...many Dealers would come to my table(s) and try an show me the prices..saying, "it's right here in the guide, see, your asking too much", and I would reply, "those prices are wrong and that's for regular coinage of the type, weak strikes and basic generic material, not what I'm selling....let's compare".... Pissed alot of them off but oh well...sharks on the bourse...many of the shows before 2015 and until January this year you couldn't use the CDN.....unless buying/trying to get an edge on someone... Many of the coins I offered were from a Midwest collection, CAC candidates and off market for 2 generations... Funny how they ended up paying my ask later on anyway or paid MORE AT AUCTION FOR THEM LATER.....
  2. Like light, champagne toning....very pastel, nice coin...
  3. Heavy++ on the DCAM...extraordinary coin, most are dull on the head, E,R, eagles feathers.... That's actually a rare coin in that condition....Rick's got it right....
  4. I can see some retained luster around the stars and letters....nice coin...
  5. Yes tough, I have one in same grade, same holder...nice, yours looks more flashy than mine, mine has some toning on it....
  6. Yes, exactly this....I enjoy reading the knowledgeable persons posts and it reminds me of things I forgot...crazy... Some people I'd like to be like, "I don't buy Rare Violins because I don't know anything about them"....and I sure as h*ll don't argue about it with those who do!!!!!!
  7. It does me also. I start to think about a coin and my stomach gets kinda queezy and I start thinking about how to pay for it, what angle at auction, I go through other coins and then don't want to sell them so I stretch for another one. My nervousness starts because I go and do it again and I know it. When I think of all the Gold and Silver and Rare Coins I tremble. Sometimes "barf" as you described. The fact that my addiction has lead to personal Family concerns, yeah barf .....I'm right there with you.... I used to hoard every coin, simple change etc..separate the best looking ones but keep them all....started when I was very young. Love of Money can be a seriously powerful thing...Good and unfortunately evil. mon trésor est caché......
  8. I'm in the 69 camp or less if a grade if the coin has outstanding attributes or a deep, as intended strike...maybe even heavy luster on s lower grade over a 70.... However, the connoisseur or Registry owner may argue different. In the end is it about $$$$ or Prestige.....bragging rights....? I personally have seen certain year eagles, like 1997....tough year for a perfect 70....many of the Gold Bullion Coins in Smaller denomination are like that also...(early 90's)....
  9. I agree with this....however, we've had people just insist on us sending it in for them and we risked a lawsuit for not doing do when we even charged them applicable terms on doing so... They had cash so....as I said, we had no choice really. Lawyer said we were providing a service to all and we were getting the money do....I lost that battle.
  10. Totally worth it. Is it a heavy Cam on reverse or....love this year....those Ultra Cams from the 50's can break my piggy bank.....I like your coin....
  11. Dark midnight sky purple/blue transcends into burnt serria..with a bold almost evenly faded center...boosts originality and it screams eye appeal...nicer than some higher grade specimens with luster... I would seek this type of coin out personally.....congrats!!! I salute you!!!
  12. I have a mobile station, which is not my hobby creation. I have an ancient collection. I did not find this site by affection, and I could help students from all over the world, but my brain is knurled...... P.S. this Gin & Tonic is Supersonic...
  13. That will do it for me also...I like the subtle color peeking it's way through...almost vibrant but reserved...sweet!!
