  1. No. Very much no. So if I run a temporary mint museum at the Fogo de Chão in downtown Philadelphia and strike Morgan dollar lookalike medallions, will they have been made at the mint? these lookalike medallions WERE struck at the former old carson city mint in nevada a former united states mint which is quite different from striking morgan tokens at fogo de chao in downtown philly that has no history or ever striking a morgon dollar sort of comparing apples to oranges and orginally all i posted was that these were struck at the former carson city mint there is no need (and this is the second time you have made a big deal out of something) again no need to nit pick or be mean spirited if you have a personal bone to pick with me why dont you pm me and tell me what i have done in the past to you?? so we can resolve this?? it might surprise you but i do know the difference that morgan dollar coins were never struck at fogo de chao as it never was a federal mint all i did was post a friendly post on this topic and just want to participate in friendly board discussions False. Fogo de Chão is at the location of the 2nd Mint building, which is where Morgan dollars were first minted. It is no longer a mint, much as the CC Museum is no longer a mint, rather simply at the site of a former mint. Not trying to be hostile. sure you are ............................................. not correct semantics again no morgan dollars were struck at the restaurant maybe at the building long ago a clever play on words and twisting my meaning and the carson city mint building is still standing as a tribute to the cc mint and looks about the same; it might not be a current mint but people still refer to that and most everyone knows ( reasonably knowledgable) collectors who collect coins that the cc mint building doesnot currently strike coins but many still call it the carson city mint and it is not a totally refurbished building that is now a restaurant.

  3. agreed Will the debris on this Jefferson nickel keep it from grading? along with the bad carbon spot on the letter L i think it will no grade at NGC and IF BY SOME CHANCE it does grade both the debris and carbon spot will greatly limit the grade in my opinion sorry to say
  4. i got an e mail about these coins a month ago from moderncoinmart anyone with any sense can see they are not genuine original coins and might have been struck at the original carson city mint, mint museum etc long closed slabbed ........................................................
  5. yes very much yes.............................. a question of semantics
  6. and if my memory serves me correctly these were struck at the carson city mint in nevada!!
  7. with cc mintmark on the reverse below the eagle
  8. why bother with silver when you can have brand new carson city collection gold also slabbed by ngc https://www.moderncoinmart.com/gold/1885-cc-2015-5-gold-carson-city-mint-collection-commemorative-ngc-gem-deep-prooflike.html
  9. someone private messaged me and asked if this was MY report NO ............. it is john agre's report on his website www.coinraritiesonline.com
  10. Coin Commentary Our Opinions on All Things Numismatic October 31, 2015: October by the Numbers As we remove our thick, pancake Halloween makeup and neatly fold and put away our usual B. Max Mehl costume, it is time for another installment of CRO’s ‘By the Numbers’ in which we highlight a month numerically starting right now: 0: Coin shows attended in October. Also 0: Air miles flown this month, which was a rare treat. Over 600: Total miles driven to meet with collectors and dealers to conduct coin business this month, including many local meetings, and one collection purchase in a nearby state. $250: Least expensive coin we bought in this month. 100x That Amount: Most expensive coin we bought. Though I can say in all seriousness that there is a possibility we will make more money on the previous item than this one. Just One: Early Bird Notifications launched this month. 40.7%: Early Bird items in total sold from said list to date, which is a bit better than we usually do. Half a Dozen: Orders received for the single most popular item therein. More than 6 Centuries: Age of the oldest coin among them. 1969: Date of the only raw item we sold this month, acquired by us at a show earlier in the year while quite literally killing time waiting for a dealer at a different table to finish some paperwork. 16: New people who clicked on the gold Early Bird button on our home page and added their name to our mailing list this month. 4: Number of them who ordered a coin from the very next list. We really like when that happens. 2 and Very Nearly 3: Layaway deals which were consummated in October. 9,631: Distance in miles from our office to the furthest recipient of a CRO coin. Roughly 3 and a Half Hours: Shortest holding period of any coin sold this month. Almost 4 Years: Holding period of the longest one, a coin we bought in late 2011, chucked in the safe back then and figured we’d get to eventually. 23: Coins we sold on Ebay this month. ½: Unplanned, unexpected portion of a coin we purchased in the middle of the month with another dealer, and then delightfully sold right after. 4 or 5: Other coins dealers offered to split with us that we declined. Unfortunately Once: Times the CRO mascot dog had an accident in the office. And if that’s the worst thing that happened this month, things must be going pretty well. Finito
