  1. Unlike many other collectibles markets, on the whole, the space artifact market has been trending upwards, particularly over the last several years.
  2. While I wouldn't mind getting an original Apollo 11 flown Robbins medallion, I'm not willing to spend the ~ $25,000 - $35,000 they would cost to get one. These restruck medallions hold no interest for me, but they might interest someone else. http://www.collectspace.com/news/news-081418a-apollo11-robbins-medallions-50th.html BTW, if you've got the scratch, Armstrong's Apollo 11 flown gold Robbins medallion (1 of 3 gold Apollo 11 Robbins medallions, one each for Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins) will be going up for auction within the year. I wouldn't be surprised if it goes for $250,000.
  3. That's a beautiful looking gold Robbins medallion! That sucker is gonna' go for a bundle.

    Not a good time to sell gold

    Blame the seller? Pardon me, but that sounds like blame the person who got raped. You buy and you sell, and while you hope your timing is good, sometimes it isn't. For all we know the seller might be into these coins for $250 - $300 a coin. C'est la vie.

    U.S. Coins is on Life Support

    Actually, it is not just a matter of cut and paste. For text it is just cut and paste, but for images you have to do them individually for each of the three major coin board sites (here, PCGS-CU, and Coin Talk).
  6. Here are my 1943 PDS Washingtons for my Registry set. The images are by Bob Campbell, and I think he did an excellent job. The P is a PCGS MS67, the D is an NGC MS65*, and the S is a PCGS MS66.
  7. Peace dollar. Common date/mm. Every few years I'll donate the current piece to a (younger) person who shows interest in learning about the coin. Hopefully one or more has/have gotten interested in numismatics through this.
  8. While I would NOT crack these out, I certainly have cracked a fair amount of slabbed Washingtons to put into my toner Danscos.
  9. These were put into my NGC Registry set before the NGC only rules took effect.
  10. I love the reverse design of the Monroe.
  11. Here are the 1942 PDS Washingtons for my Registry set. All three coins are PCGS MS66. The 1942-D was imaged by Bob Campbell, and I think he did an excellent job. It sure is a lot harder to get decently toned Washingtons from the early 1940's than it is from the 1950's.
  12. Here are the 1957 P and D Washingtons for my A toner Dansco. The P I cracked from a PCGS MS66 slab, and the D I pulled from a Mint Set. The D was imaged by Bob Campbell, and I think he did an excellent job.
