  1. LMFAO!! People on eBay are selling the quarters anywhere from $80 to as high as $139! Course I guess if they sell them, I won't be laughing!
  2. Guys, I agree. I'll probably get some rolls and see if I find any and if I do, great. If I don't, it's not the end of the world! Do you guys think that the banks would have them by now?
  3. I'm thinking that if I can get some that are "really" banged up, that they might be worth saving for my grand kids. After all, I seem to never know what coin might be worth something and what might be worthless!
  4. I was under the impression that the quarters were only in bank bags. Can someone clarify that?
  5. I see they're released the W quarters to banks a few days ago. I was wondering what you experienced collectors think about going out and finding them. Is it worth searching for them and do you think they'll have any value down the road?
  6. The problem with the Eagle is that you pay a premium price for the proof. So it isn't a sound "silver" investment. IF silver goes way up, there's so many Eagles out there, I don't see them going up proportionately. Yes, they may go up a bit, but imo, you're better off collecting rounds if you're investing in strictly silver. But I still think the Eagle is a beautiful coin. They just make too many!
  7. I see that the set sold out pretty quick. I didn't realize the Kennedy was a reverse enhanced proof. They're selling the sets on ebay for $70-$80. Does anyone think this is worth buying? I was told this is the first reverse enhanced proof Kennedy that's been out out.
  8. Mohawk, Great points. I think with the unlimited production, that will keep values low. It would have been nice if they came out with each coin being a limited run. Thanks for your opinion.
  9. This is from the US Mint regarding the "W" proof cent. It's the chat I had with an agent: 11:27:48 [Customer] the following true? The website shows an "S" penny.11:27:52 [Customer] The US Mint has announced that a 2019-W Proof Cent will be included with all purchases of the 2019 United States Mint Proof Set, which goes on sale March 1. This is the first cent to feature the ‘W’ mint mark of the West Point Mint. NGC is celebrating this historic coin with a special attribution of First “W” Mint Mark Cent, as well as NGC’s West Point Mint Gold Star Label, both of which are provided
  10. Ok. I'll see what happens with them. Maybe I'll get lucky and the ones I don't clean, will develop a nice tone. I doubt it, but you never know!
  11. Thanks for the response. The coins I would want to clean, are newer silver MS coins I bought a few years back. Like Eagles and Maple Leafs. I bought them new. I made the mistake of touching them with my bare hands. Sp maybe I'll give a couple of them a rinse with acetone, to take off any "grease" I left behind.
  12. Mohawk, So your'e saying that I can clean any coin with acetone without damaging the value? Some people say to NEVER clean a coin, so that's why I'm wondering if acetone is ok. Obviously it'll clean it, but I want to make sure that won't affect the value. Example: If I cleaned a coin with acetone and sent it in to be graded, would they lower the grade on the cleaned coin? Thanks
  13. I just got my innovation coins and I was shocked! One of the boxes has a big piece of tape on one end and the other box looks like it has "printers ink" on it. Actually, both boxes look like they're a couple of years old. The ends of the boxes are scuffed up too. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm going to return them, but now I'm wondering what they're going to send back to me! Please let me know if any of you had that problem. Thanks
