  1. Hello. Always looking to buy coins from Stolberg counties of Holy Roman Empire (Stolberg, Stolberg-Stolberg, Stolberg-Rossla, Stolberg-Wernigerode). Interested in higher grade well preserved coins with most details intact VF+ and up, but will consider all offers. Coins graded by NGC or PCGS are preferable, but not required. As long as you see my collection publicly available online search remain ongoing.
  2. Howdy folks. I collect coins from a small county of Holy Roman Empire. Most of the coins intended for circulation issued by theis county would be at least 300 years old today. The problem I'm facing is that many coins on the market from that era are cleaned or polished. What I do not understand, is that some obviously cleaned coins get numeric grade and some Details - cleaned. For instance, MS61: and UNC Details: I just got another 5 raw coins I plan to add to my collection, and I would say 4 out 5 them with visible chaotic hairlines on the fields. Will all those get Details grade, or there are some sort of criteria that grading companies follow when they decide which coin gets a nail in the coffin?
  3. Hello, Can Stolberg counties be added to the list of German States registry sets? Most interesting sets probably would be: Thalers, Stolberg-Wernigerode, Commemorative Issues Thalers, Stolberg-Wernigerode, Circulation Issues Gold Ducates, Stolberg-Wernigerode Gold Ducates, Stolberg-Stolberg Fractional Ducates, Stolberg-Stolberg (maybe unify with Gold Ducates under same set) Fractional Ducates, Stolberg-Rossla 200 years of Reformation by Martin Luther, Stolberg-Stolberg, Commemorative Issue of 1717 Best regards
  4. Thank you, guys. I decided to send it for grading, and it seems it either could be an expensive mistake (mostly in form of grading expenses) or a little bit of luck. Before sending I was able to determine that mint mark is likely to be 'D'. Interesting, if it's a double strike could such mint error worth some extra premium? So far plan is if it's a mint error and worth a grand or two I would probably sell it to cover collecting expenses. If the coin won't be graded, well in such case it would be a hundred dollars lesson. Six Mile Rick, I would be able to send more pictures in a month or so once the coin is back from grading. Hopefully, I sent it in time to get a free Trueview image from the grading company, so if it's a real deal we would have a better look.
  5. Hello, Found this worn 1916 (D or S) buffalo nickel. There is appears to be a doubled die mint error on the reverse of the coin. I'm new to collecting, trying to find out if it's a mint error (some folks voiced an opinion that such effect is due to a scratch from rolling machine), and if it's a mint error should this coin be sent for grading in such worn condition. Any advice is appreciated.
