    Wish I could photograph these better, but this toner has golden centers with icy blue/green toning around the peripheries. Not a high grade, but one of my personal favorites that I own.

    • Stephen Skorupowski 1 day, 10 hours ago

      Great look both front and back, very nice!

    • Andy Pilon 1 day, 10 hours ago

      This is one I wish I could see in hand! I can imagine how incredible this one would look in the right light! Very nice toned Morgan Adam!

    • John Smith 1 day, 9 hours ago

      I wouldn’t doubt this one is undergraded. Can’t go wrong with that one!

    • David Bloomberg 1 day, 2 hours ago

      Beautiful soft coloring. Love how the ring frames the face of the coin.

    • Lonnie Czinder 13 hours, 49 minutes ago

      Very nicely toned Morgan!

    • Todd Abshire 2 hours, 48 minutes ago

      She certainly is a looker Adam. I would have to agree with John on this one, she’s definitely under-graded. At least 63 in my book and possibly 64 if I could see her in hand.

    Anyone know the deal with the photo of the month? My PCGS 1893-S Morgan is the headliner but I swore when I looked yesterday it was some common NGC State Quarter??

    • Todd Abshire 2 hours, 49 minutes ago

      I didn’t know they had a “Coin of the Month”. Where did you see that at John?

    Who’s the wise guy that always thumbs down any comment I make?

    • Todd Abshire 2 hours, 50 minutes ago

      I think some of the comments you make are not very friendly, as stated before, but it is not I who thumbs down your every comment. I think that everyone has an opinion, whether liked or disliked, and personally, I could care less what others think of me. I only worry about what I think of me. :-)

    • Bruce Boyce 12 hours ago

      Is this photoshopped??????????????????????????

    • Todd Abshire 11 hours, 44 minutes ago

      This coin is not nearly as vivid in person as it is in hand. The colors are there but the luster hides the “dull look” of the colors in the photo. They are easily visible, don’t get me wrong, but the depth of the colors aren’t their when viewed in person.

    • Bruce Boyce 11 hours, 43 minutes ago

      How do you take these remarkable photos?

    • Todd Abshire 10 hours, 26 minutes ago

      This particular pic was a stock photo from the seller that I purchased this coin from.

    • Lonnie Czinder 10 hours, 21 minutes ago

      Looks pretty good!

    • Kayla Hoss 9 hours, 55 minutes ago

      Another amazing coin Todd!

    • Todd Abshire 7 hours, 56 minutes ago

      Thanks peeps!

    • John Smith 6 hours, 53 minutes ago

      You should post a video of some of your toners one after another. I would be curious to see what they look like when they aren’t professionally photographed

    • John Smith 6 hours, 53 minutes ago

      Amazing coin by the way

    • David Bloomberg 6 hours, 3 minutes ago

      This is another WOW

    • Todd Abshire 2 hours, 52 minutes ago

      Thanks again fellas. I try to post the most accurate pics of the coins that I own but sometimes they are so hard to match. This one has a lot more luster but less color in hand. Most of the pics are as accurate as can be. I try not to “doctor” the photos. It’s not about bragging or showing off when I show the toners that I’ve acquired over…[Read more]

    A superb 1927-D Peace Dollar in “MS63″ certified by PCGS. I have the grade in quotes because as you will probably notice, these is severely undergraded. I would guess it would resubmit as an MS64 or 64+ with a shot at 65 if the grader is having a good day.

    • Todd Abshire 12 hours, 17 minutes ago

      Outstanding John! I love the Peace Dollar design and this specimen is well worthy of the grade given…and some. MS64+ in my opinion. :-)

    • Bruce Boyce 12 hours, 11 minutes ago

      Nice luster and it does have pretty clean surfaces for the grade

    • Lonnie Czinder 10 hours, 18 minutes ago

      Now this is a beauty! Is the color from the coin or the photo?

    • John Smith 6 hours, 48 minutes ago

      It’s as white as me. My yellow tinged bulb makes some of my coins look toned

    • Lonnie Czinder 5 hours, 45 minutes ago

      I thought it looked toned but when looking at photos, who knows? Would be pretty either way!

    • David Bloomberg 4 hours, 28 minutes ago

      Big fan of the reverse. A very nice piece

  • 4 hours, 35 minutes ago

    Bruce Boyce

    I wish they put more thought into the designs of the majority of the modern coins besides the commemoratives. I just simply like the designs of most of the older coins better.

    • Lonnie Czinder 10 hours, 21 minutes ago

      You and me both!

    • Todd Abshire 10 hours, 17 minutes ago

      I agree 100%. I’ve been on the U. S. Mint’s subscription list since it became available and I’ve gotten away from all modern coins. The mint is more about making money than they are about making coin art. I’d much rather the older designs, as do most collectors, but the mint seems to have forgotten us.

    • Lonnie Czinder 8 hours, 29 minutes ago

      I’m not sure who they are talking to when they make some of their decisions.

    • John Smith 6 hours, 52 minutes ago

      I agree for the most part but at least they are changing some designs now.

    • Lonnie Czinder 5 hours, 39 minutes ago

      Anyone have any thoughts on the proposed 2015 high relief gold coin design? I kinda like it but I think Lady Liberty looks a bit like Medusa!

    • David Bloomberg 4 hours, 35 minutes ago

      I think we appreciate things more when they stop production. We like a Indian penny or nickel because we just don’t see them every day. How many of us my not have liked a certain model of a car, but ten years later, you might love it. Just a thought

    Here’s another well circulated old timer, with an O mint Mark!

    • Todd Abshire 12 hours, 16 minutes ago

      Superb design…superb coin! :-)

    • Bruce Boyce 12 hours, 10 minutes ago

      Oh how I love Seated Dollars. This one has all the detail you need and a nice look as well!

      Nice coin

    Here is what a PR68 Franklin should look like.

    • Andy Pilon 1 day, 9 hours ago

      I like Bruce’s better. I think PCGS messed up the grade on this one. I hope you didn’t pay more than $20 for this one!

    • John Smith 1 day, 9 hours ago

      ha-ha Andy. I think you guys are taking what I say the wrong way. I am a very, very experienced collector and have been in the hobby for decades. I am only trying to help out my fellow collector friends make the right purchases. Nothing more, nothing less.

    • Andy Pilon 1 day, 8 hours ago

      Look at the 4 thumbs down on your comment on Bruce’s post, look at the 3 thumbs up on my comment, and PLEASE take the hint! Stop trying to “help” us! Keep your PCGS/grading/appraisals to yourself! Bruce himself said your comments made him feel bad about his purchase. That is NOT what this site is for. And if you just can’t help yourself, I’m sure…[Read more]

    • John Smith 1 day, 7 hours ago

      Whatever

    • Todd Abshire 1 day, 6 hours ago

      I can appreciate the look of this coin John, but Andy has a point. You can offer advice or “help” with a little more tact. Not everyone on this site is as experienced as you are and some are more experienced than you. Maybe you should think about what you’re typing before it appears on this site.

      We share our knowledge, we learn from others, we encourage, we help celebrate everyone’s past and present purchases. Enjoy the hobby, enjoy the club. Everyone, let’s have fun!!

    • Bruce Boyce 12 hours, 9 minutes ago

      I honestly can’t tell any difference between the two but I am happy that you are happy with yours and I am happy with mine! :)

    • Lonnie Czinder 10 hours, 19 minutes ago

      And I guess that’s why we get them, whatever the coin or the grade, because it gives us enjoyment!

      That is what it’s all about

    Ok since I don’t have a lot to spend, I bought this Silver Eagle from ebay. I haven’t received it yet so this is their photo of it. I am hoping I didn’t get taken, but it sure looks pretty and I paid $50 for it. What do you guys think?

    • Todd Abshire 10 hours, 21 minutes ago

      It sure is pretty Kayla, but it’s still only 1 ounce of silver. Without all of the artwork, you would be able to pick this up for $2-$4 above spot price, which is around $17.21 as I type this reply. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I’m more of an investment type when it comes to silver eagles, so I’d pass on it for $50. But, with that…[Read more]

    • Kayla Hoss 9 hours, 56 minutes ago

      So the design on these Silver Eagles is worth the same as a regular Silver Eagle? I just assumed it was worth more, like it was rarer.

    • Lonnie Czinder 8 hours, 31 minutes ago

      Pretty coin, but the artwork is added later by someone else, not at the mint. It’s one ounce of silver so whatever the spot value is, that’s what it’s worth. Rarity of something only is relevant if there is demand. It’s a pretty conversation piece for you though.

    • John Smith 6 hours, 51 minutes ago

      Ya this is just a regular silver eagle with a sticker on it. Hate to say it, but you got had pretty girl. Worth about $20.

    • David Bloomberg 6 hours, 4 minutes ago

      Never saw one like this. Very nice coin. If it makes you smile when you admire it, than you got a great deal!

  • 7 hours, 53 minutes ago

    Here is a sleeper coin that is very rare. In fact, it is ranked #52 in PCGS’s top 100 modern coins. NGC will slab almost anything a 70, but PCGS is quite strict with their 70’s.

    • Todd Abshire 7 hours, 53 minutes ago

      It’s gold…it’s a buffalo…it’s 70…what is there not to like? :-)

    The posting a day or so ago of the 1943 steel pennies got me thinking of a couple old Canadian nickels I have in my collection from the same period. Known as Victory nickels, the composition of the 1943 coin is ‘tombac’, 88% copper and 12% zinc. For 1944 and 1945 the coins were chrome plated steel. King George VI is on the other side.

    Here is a prime example of overgrading with off brand slabs. Who in their right mind would grade this an MS60? It’s barely AU!

    • John Smith 1 day, 9 hours ago

      No glass necessary to see the wear on this guy. I would grade it AU50 cleaned. NGC says MS60.

    • David Bloomberg 1 day, 2 hours ago

      I would really have liked to see this one in person. I would say my small collection Is 50-50 NGC-PCGS. Equal trust in both.

    • Robert Davis 18 hours, 37 minutes ago

      It does have a lot of chatter and looks like it has wear but would need to see in person to be sure

    • Todd Abshire 12 hours, 13 minutes ago

      My guess would be that the luster must be the only reason this one was given an MS grade. She looks real “baggy” to me, but I’d take her either way. I’ve never thrown a Morgan in the trash, regardless of the look. :-)

    A primo Barber Half certified by PCGS. Reverse looks different than the obverse mainly because of the photo, but it also has some light champagne toning. Anyone want to guess the grade?

    • Stephen Skorupowski 1 day, 9 hours ago

      The front looks AU58/MS60, the back looks MS65

    • John Smith 1 day, 9 hours ago

      Stephen if I was grading by the photo, I would actually agree with you on that. The photo makes the reverse actually look a little nicer, while the light hitting the obverse accentuates the flaws. So what is your overall answer?

    • Stephen Skorupowski 1 day, 8 hours ago

      I’ll stick with AU58

    • John Smith 1 day, 7 hours ago

      MS61 is the grade on this one. It’s a 63 anywhere else.

    • Todd Abshire 1 day, 5 hours ago

      She’s a nice coin John!

    • David Bloomberg 1 day, 2 hours ago

      Nice

    • Robert Davis 18 hours, 38 minutes ago

      What a beauty you have there. In all honesty and it may just be the pic, but it looks like it has a trace of wear on the cheek. Could be slide friction.

    • Lonnie Czinder 13 hours, 44 minutes ago

      Nice looking half regardless of the holder!

    • John Smith 12 hours, 31 minutes ago

      Thank you gents.

    Here is a junker that I still have hanging around. At least it’s PCGS certified, but the grade is so low that I hardly like to even look at it!

      She’s good enough for me. If you’d like, I can PM you my address. :-)

    • David Bloomberg 2 days, 2 hours ago

      It has a lot of character. Some of my favorite coins to admire are low grade silver halfs which did not cost a lot, but put a smile on my face. They have character

    • Lonnie Czinder 1 day, 14 hours ago

      Nice clean looking coin! Would make some collector happy!

    • Cecil S 1 day, 12 hours ago

      I have this same in PCGS, however it is over graded. Slab says MS64 but it is really a 63.

    • John Smith 1 day, 9 hours ago

      Cecil you meant to say NGC right?

    • Cecil S 1 day, 5 hours ago

    Here is my PR68 Franklin Half. This is the highest graded one that I own. Definitely has some cameo to it as well!

    • John Smith 2 days, 12 hours ago

      Looks pretty to the eye. Most likely it would get a 64 or 65 from PCGS – maybe a 66 or 67 from NGC. Just so you paid $25 or less, you are A-OK!

    • Bruce Boyce 2 days, 8 hours ago

      I paid a lot more than $25

    • David Bloomberg 2 days, 2 hours ago

      Looks like it just left the mint

    • Andy Pilon 1 day, 16 hours ago

      Incredible Franklin half Bruce!! I’d be proud to own that guy!

    • Andy Pilon 1 day, 16 hours ago

      That is exactly what I was talking about John. Why do you have to throw in those stupid PCGS comments?! Nobody here wants to hear you talk about PCGS PCGS PCGS every time someone posts an NGC, ICG, or ANACS graded coin. And then you have to make a brainless comment about paying $25 or less, making the collector feel bad! Those go for around $100…[Read more]

    • Lonnie Czinder 1 day, 14 hours ago

      Very nice, Bruce! You know, sometimes our amateur photos just don’t do a coin justice. I know I feel that way when I try to snap some of my coins.

    • Cecil S 1 day, 12 hours ago

      I’m with you Andy, while I don’t buy ICG, I don’t bash anyone that does. To say this would trade a 64 in PCGS and a 66 at NGC is also asinine. Many of people have blogs where they crack coins and submit to both services, yes at times coins come back different but NGC and PCGS get it the same most of the time. I’ve even seen some accugrade and…[Read more]
