  1. Nice coin. I am unfamiliar with WINGS. Is that a new CAC wannabe?
  2. I believe it makes a coin easier to sell when the time comes. Sort of like an insurance policy.
  3. You are saving money by being a year behind the issue. I collect modern commemoratives and find that their price drops after the initial excitement has subsided. How great is it to have a helper with your collecting? Keep up the good work.
  4. Nicely done. Smooth flow and good photography plus historical information made this very interesting. Good Job
  5. what a great idea. well done

    General Observation

    Hi Bill. It is great seeing you post again I am ambivalent leaning towards happy that NGC reversed their decision about PCGS coins in the registry. I was upset when they initially eliminated PCGS coins from the registry as that left me high and dry in every one of my collections. I will now complete two collections because I have PCGS coins that I couldn't enter before and that is a very satisfying feeling to me. As to value increase or decrease I am not certain how that will effect coin values, if at all.

    FIRST DAY OF ISSUE LABEL?

    The whole first day of issue, first strikes, and early release labels are scams. The coins are not any different but somehow have gained a premium????? Buy the coin not the label/plastic. By the way Welcome home Brother.
  8. Last bump before Christmas. Treat yourself to some of these beauties:)
  9. A little Thanksgiving week bump for those who want to do some early Christmas shopping:)
  10. I am downsizing and upgrading at the same time. I know that sounds counterintuitive but that seems to be the path at this time In any case as I was making a list my collecting buddy asked me to throw a few of his coins on it. So without further ado here is the list from A-Z. The prices listed are from the price guide and while I would be delighted to get these prices I will accept offers. Happy hunting I am not here every day so please be patient if I don't respond immediately.If you are interested in more than one coin I am willing to do a better deal. Buy three coins and I will provide free shipping. Otherwise shipping is $3. Pictures can be provided but most of these are common in appearance. The 58D washie will be a tricky picture but I will give it a whirl on request.

    I Couldn't Be More Pleased!

    Congratulations it is always nice to be "right" once in a while in this hobby. It helps heal the pain of missing so many other times. That is a nice a nice looking both before and after. Your thread has encouraged to send in an 1870 IHC that is a bit of a mess. I will keep you posted.
