  1. I recently started collecting after seeing a few random videos about the silver market. I started out doing coin roll hunts and checking some of the change I had around the house. It has rapidly evolved into a minor obsession with all kinds of coins. Being a computer engineer and prior service member, I have been conditioned to absorb a lot of information for work. This new hobby has lead into learning a great deal in the last few months. So much to learn and I feel rather pathetic at times about how enjoyable a roll hunt can be for me. The wife is not to happy about me taking over the dining room table a few nights a week but my son's love it. I have not bought a membership yet, but I'm interested in doing it soon as I have a few coins I want to have graded. Any advice on whether to go with PCGS or NGC would be great. My interest are somewhat evenly split between the precious metal stacking and numismatic collecting. I see value in both. Definitely on the hunt for the West point Quarter but I am somewhat suspicious about the process of releasing the coins into circulation. Would love to see what the logistics or the strategy that is used in scattering the W coins into circulation with P and D mints. Recently I found almost an entire roll of War in the Pacific Quarters, about two weeks ago full of P and D war in the Pacific quarters but they have been sparse since. Lowell's are very abundant though, I have 4 of the die chip errors. I suspect many others do as well and would love to hear some opinions on what the real value of the Lowell errors are. I see such a wide spectrum of valuation on the web.
