  1. I've always subscribed to the theorem of "buy the coin, not the holder." I have some very nice coins in ANACS and ICG holders, but the majority are in NGC and PCGS. I've cracked out a number of coins because the bulk of that series in my collection was raw (CBH and WLH for example). It has been a while since I cracked out any coin. The last couple of years I have stuck with more expensive ($300+) in NCG or PCGS only. If it is sticked with the CAC bean so much the better, although that is not the sole determinant in my purchase. I still buy what I like that is attractive to me and fits into my collection. I have become much more selective as the years go by.

    Very nice grouping of coins!
  12. Over 2K dollars for a toned Kennedy?

    I like attractively toned coins and am willing to pay a premium for them. The obverse toning is nice, the reverse doesn't excite me. I'd be in for $100 max. I'm happy for the new owner and seller. I would love to have been the seller (thumbs u
