  1. Alright, today I am going to offer an entire beginner's coin collection. One lot takes it all. This would make an *amazing* gift for a beginner, a young numismatist, a grandchild. There is a wide range of stuff here - Flying Eagles, Indians, Wheaties, Liberty nickels, Buffalo nickels, Mercury, Walker, Standing Liberty quarters, some foreign stuff, some modern stuff, some low grade stuff, some high grade stuff! There are some errors and varieties... like I said, a little bit of everything. There is a total of 8.3 ounces of silver in this lot. There are 100 coins cataloged, plus a giant pile of wheat cents in addition. Please make an offer on this! I have included the full catalog of what is included below. Based on my grade estimates, I think the price-guide value is around $780. I think a more realistic value is probably $500.... So I will offer this lot at $350. Make me an offer. If there is anything you would like to see closer pictures of, please let me know. As an added bonus, I will include a signed copy of my book, "The Art and Science of Grading Coins." Shipping will be $10, as this is a huge and heavy collection.

    How Would You Grade This Ancient Coin

    NGC Does not use numbers for grading ancient coins. The levels are "MS", "Choice MS", and "Gem MS" Yours would probably make Choice MS.

    Learn how to Grade Coins!

    Strike. Luster. Wear. Eye Appeal. Surface Preservation. If you understand these 5 basic building blocks, you will be able to grade any coin. In this book, I will teach you not only how to judge these pieces, but why a coin looks the way it does. I'll point out common problems with coins, and how it affects the grade. And finally, I'll pull everything together and show you how to grade the coin. Soon, you'll be grading coins like the pros! I hope you enjoy this book, and I hope that you are able to learn something from it. It is available on Amazon, so please take a look: The Art and Science of Grading CoinsThanks, Jason Poe

    Thoughts on this 1889 Morgan

    I don't think it is natural terminal toning. It appears to me either like fire damage, or AT that has turned. If you have some acetone, give it a soak - if you have some dip, give it a bath. You can't really hurt that coin any more, but you may be able to improve it.
  10. I agree with the majority: while it has AU details, that spot removal in front of her nose would probably disqualify a straight grade.

    New York World show in January

    I keep thinking about going to this show. On the one hand, I would have access to world dealers and possibly find coins to add to my collection that I wouldn't normally otherwise. On the other hand - FUN is usually the same week, or the week before, and it is a bigger show - FUN is in Orlando, which is vastly cheaper to attend - NYINC is in New York City - probably the most disgusting, foul, smelly, and awful city I've ever been too. I've vowed to never return to this cesspool unless there was a compelling reason. This coin show is not reason enough. Oh, I guess that's enough reasons not to go.

    At least 3 out of 4 of these are fakes....

    Prooflike (PL) Buffalo Nickel

    Well, they have a Peace Dollar in 65PL listed for $75,000..... which is also equally insane.
  15. Yes, I remember well my purchase from the famous 41D roll!
