  1. I have 95% of the coins cataloged in Coinmanage. So there is a value set on the coins. But how many young people nowadays will wait it out on something they are not interested in to get the best price?
  2. I meant pennies on the dollar in today's market, ie, they would have no idea what to sell them for or to whom. And because of their lack of interest, would sell for less than market to get rid of them and have a little cash.. Tha vast majority of the coins I have were collected back in the 50's and 60's. The value has risen tremendously if I use that as a cost basis. I could go buy a roll of silver dollars (morgans and peace) for 20 dollars at the bank. I have several thousand of those that are circulated in various conditions.. Money is not tight, but that is not the issue. I worked ha

I worked hard collecting what I have, and just do not want someone who they have no meaning to selling them. I would rather be the one to do it. I could chose who gets them, like
  4. I'll just say this. While my dad and both loved collecting coins over the years, absolutely NO ONE in my family is interested in coins at all. I am at the point in my life where I know that if I die, my collection will be sold for pennies on the dollar by my heirs. I am seriously thinking of selling my collection at this point in my life (65 years old) and just having fun with the proceeds. I am having a hard time deciding what to do. Very sad.
  5. And how do they do this? Another reason I do not buy from the US Mint anymore. Ebay US Mint
  6. I needed to complete my National Parks silver quarter set for 2020. Went to the US Mint site, 60 bux, and not in stock. Got a set from E-bay for 49 bux. (20AQ) Looks like we need to just wait and get coins aftermarket for 20% less!
  7. Same here Bobby. I stopped in 2018. The mint has priced themselves out of my business. Not even buying proof sets anymore.
  8. Poor coin. It already had issues, then you came along.....
  9. There is some discussion of one along with photos at this link. https://www.cointalk.com/threads/1879-half-eagle-with-l-stamp.39904/#post-407395
  10. While there are those that love toned coins, I am not a fan of DMPL coins of that type. If I have a DMPL coin, I want to see it shine! Nothing like a coin that looks like it did the day it came off the press over 100 years ago! There are some very attractive toned coins, but the splotchy toning of the ones pictured are not attractive to me.
  11. Unless it is an exceptional coin, they are as common as dirt. You'll be lucky to get a dime for it. Millions were minted. 1943 (Steel Cent) 684,628,670 1943-D (Steel Cent) 217,660,000 1943-S (Steel Cent) 191,550,000 EDIT: BTW, Congrats Bobby on your number one song!
  12. Interesting that my coin and the one above could have been struck on the same press with different dies.
