Albums? by dlhii
Hello I recently purchased a partial album of silver eagles. The album is a 'mint' album I think maybe Harris made them, there are green tarnish spots on a couple of the eagles. I have the balance to complete the album but am cautious due to the tarnished coins. I like the concept of the album,...

PING: jamesdurham by Mr. Jaggers
Congratulations on your lucky find of a 37-S Lincoln. Those were not commonly found even 50 years ago, when I was doing the same thing that you are doing. To answer the question you posed in another venue, I am not collecting Lincolns any more, but am concentrating on "colonials", those...

PCGS Secure Plus by Michael Benveniste[_2_]
Did anyone notice the teaser blurb for PCGS's "new" SecurePlus service? http://www.pcgs.com/secureplus.html Quoting: Imagine a world without coin doctoring. Imagine a world without "gradeflation." It seems to me the whole idea behind "plus" grading is to get people to resubmit their coins so...

PVC or not PVC? That is the question. by Michael Benveniste[_2_]
This wasn't exactly a shining moment for me in coin photography. In fact, I was blowing off a couple of shots of film using a very odd combination of equipment. (Nikon F100, Ektar 100, a Pentax(!) 120mm f/4 Macro, and a pair of supposedly daylight balanced fluorescents). As a result, the color...

Precious Metals by Jud
A bit of a spike this morning for silver and gold. And yes, Petronius, I know that others know how to access prices...but when I see that they have gone up or down quickly, timing can be everything!

Obama Sells Out The USA by Scurvy Dog[_2_]
Obama heeded the call of his masters in the Kremlin and announced that the USA would not use its nuclear weapons EVEN IF ATTACKED. So go ahead Russia, bomb New York - Obama won't do a goddamn thing. Obama must be impeached and put on trial for what he is - a traitor.

Shield nickel struck thru cloth by [email protected]
Today I received an Ebay purchase of 2 Shield nickels. I was especially curious about one, which is atypical. I took it to a local coin dealer, who declined to speculate on what it was or what it was struck on. I have not photos, yet, on the coin. One side is described as an 1873 "closed 3" in VF+...

which countries remove legal tender status from old currencies? by yawnmoth
It's my understanding that in the United States, even now obsolete bills, like the $500.00 Federal Reserve note, are still legal tender even though they haven't been printed in decades. What about other types of currency, like United States Notes or National Currency? Are those still legal...

To Neg or Not to Neg by Scurvy Dog
Won a coin on eBay from a seller in Toronto Canada (I'm in the USA (NY)). After charging me $10 for "Express Mail", this dealer sat on his ass for a week before mailing the coin, which then took another 10 days to get here. To top it off, the coin was poorly packed and the slab had scotch tape...

Money Show in Fort Worth by Alan Bruns
I attended the ANA Money Show in downtown Fort Worth on Saturday morning. It's the largest show I've ever attended by far. I had a list of needed bust half Overton numbers I hoped to reduce by one or two (however far the budget would reach). I arrived a bit after 10:00am, parking on the...

The new Boy Scout Silver Dollar from the US Mint? Why a girl? by MKW
Can someone tell me again why there is a female featured on the Boy Scout silver dollar? I was at a banquet tonight for Boy Scout Alumni...and NO one had ever heard of a girl being in the boy scouts. That really is the dumbest design ever. Nice to see that committees dictate art that have no...

How much is enough? by Peter[_6_]
I purchased an 18th century Spanish 2 Reales coin from eBay. When I look at it (and I've seen a number of genuine examples -- from the Spanish mint even) it looks genuine. As I put it up on the shelf, it seemed just a little light. I weighed it (it is 5.53 grams rather than 6.77) and it is...
