  1. Thanks! Most of them were purchased online, I have a couple places I frequent, although they sell out really quickly if you're not paying attention. What show are you going to Mokie? And if you pick one up, let us see it.
  2. Hello everyone, I wanted to share the results of the batch of coins that I submitted at the FUN show a few weeks ago. It only took 18 days for NGC to grade them and get them back to me. That's pretty good for the volume of coins they received at the show! I submitted 9 Libertads, and 4 of them came back a perfect 70, so I am quite pleased. My only disappointment is the 1/10 oz gold coin came back MS 68. I suppose that's just how the cookie crumbles sometimes. If you can't tell from the picture, here is the list... 2019 1/2 Oz Gold Reverse Proof - Reverse PF 70 2019 1/10 Oz Gol
  3. Hey Revenant, I'm glad you went to that show and found something you like, and thanks for the shout out! That's a really nice buffalo nickel too.
  4. Congrats Revenant! I too like to read your journals, they're always interesting.

    FUN Show fun!

    You’re welcome. If you go, let me know how it was

    FUN Show fun!

    Revenant, I actually got it for $110, which is the lowest I’ve seen. And if you’re anywhere near Houston.... thanks Lastufka, I need to own more of them too! Lol

    FUN Show fun!

    I was able to go to the FUN show this past Friday (the 10th), and it was probably the best time I’ve had at the show since I’ve been going. Living in Orlando has many advantages...and this is one of them! This was the biggest show that I can remember, with over 1000 booths. It was tough, but I saw it all in just over 3 hours. I was able to pick up a 2019 Libertad 5 piece silver proof set for a great price, along with 3 other coins that I needed for my collection. The gold panning people were there again, and I think in 10 years I might find enough to trade for a 1/10 oz, haha. I also par
  8. Yep, that's how I feel Walkerfan. This coin is in my collection to stay and will never be replaced or sold until it's time to sell everything.
  9. Congrats Revenant! A top pop is a top pop no matter what kind of coin. I don't think I've read a journal about it, what got you into collecting the Zimbabwe coins and currency?
  10. I wanted to tell a story that we can all relate too that happened recently. I had a rare instance where I wasn't paying attention and got caught flat footed, and now I probably paid a lot more than I should. About two months ago the 2019 Antiqued silver Libertads were released, and they sold out without me even knowing about the release until it was too late. So naturally I was kicking myself for not being on top of things, and after scouring the interwebs I couldn't find anything anywhere. A few weeks later I was killing some time at work and saw the 1 oz version online, graded NGC MS 70.
  11. Thanks Revenant, I didn't realize it has been that long.
  12. 1000% agree with you rons. The whole first strike label is especially scammy, because it is literally impossible to know what coins were struck first. The mint strikes a certain amount, in this case 30,000, but releases them all at once. How can you possibly know what coins were "first strikes"?? Somebody tell me if i'm wrong...
  13. Thanks for the comment gherrmann44..it’s funny you should say that about your retirement portfolio. That’s what I tell my wife too, that I’m not just buying for kicks and giggles, it’s part of our retirement. It doesn’t always sway her, lol. Fortunately I’m far from that day. Here’s the PF 70..
  14. Hello everyone, I have been an NGC member for a few years now, and a lurker on the chat boards. I have never posted on there, or created a journal, but I wanted to create a journal to document my progress. I recently realized that I had made a tremendous amount of progress this year on my collection of Mexican Libertads. Like a lot of people, when I first stated collecting I didn't really have a focus. I just bought a lot of random "junk", like silver bars and rounds, silver bullion coins from different mints around the world, and the occasional gold bullion bar or coin. That all changed
