      You should get one of the graded PCGS Eagles that have Mercanti’s autograph on them.

    • John Walter LaFollette 16 hours, 16 minutes ago

      Seriously doubt the authenticity of the signatures. They are normally just photocopies.

    • Cecil S 14 hours, 58 minutes ago

      NGC does the photo copies. PCGS has the authentic signed ones. I have a set signed by Gen. Tommy Franks.

    A little something different today. Nothing special about it, I just like it…. 1973 series Canadian $1.00 bill. Canada started minting dollar coins in 1987 and stopped printing paper $1.00 in 1989. Paper dollars no longer found in circulation although still legal tender.

    • Todd Abshire 17 hours, 59 minutes ago

      I like foreign currency. Their color and designs put our currency to shame.

    Here’s pics of today’s flea market purchases. I did see a toned Morgan Dollar that was very reasonably priced, but I didn’t like the crescent pattern.

    • Lonnie Czinder 18 hours, 18 minutes ago

      Nice assortment! I saw my first Hawaii dime a couple weeks ago but passed on it. Just didn’t want to get going in another direction at this time. The bust quarter is very nice!

    • Todd Abshire 18 hours ago

      Thanks! I’m sort of like an A-D-D coin collector. There is no method to my madness. I buy whatever I like, don’t have or want…PERIOD. :-)

    Here’s my Silver 1976 Bi-Centennial quarter with some nice toning. This one came from the same seller that originally sold the MS67 Secure Plus toner that Andy mentioned on here. I can tell you that I paid less than $135 for this one which is nowhere near what he’s asking for the other.

    • Cecil S 1 day, 19 hours ago

      And this one looks much better to me. I wouldn’t go up to $100 for the other one.

    • Todd Abshire 1 day, 10 hours ago

      Thanks Cecil! I do agree with you. Even though the other is graded higher, I liked the color on this one more.

    • Lonnie Czinder 18 hours, 16 minutes ago

      Very pretty!

    • Todd Abshire 18 hours, 1 minute ago

      Thanks Lonnie!

    I see this “1799” Large Cent that sold on Ebay for $660. Do you guys think this is a true 1799? Looks like a 1798 to me.

    • Robert Davis 2 days, 12 hours ago

      I see an 8!

    • Cecil S 2 days, 4 hours ago

      At first I felt like it was an 8, but now I’m not sure, I think I might be able to see a 9 also….

    • Stephen Skorupowski 1 day, 23 hours ago

      Looks like an 8. With rare pieces like these I would stick with Certified pieces at least you know it is genuine.

    • Cecil S 1 day, 21 hours ago

      Agreed, too scary to buy loose coins.

    • Stephen Skorupowski 1 day, 18 hours ago

      Ask yourself this question, if you owned this coin and thought it was a 1799 wouldn’t you want to have it slabbed to get the most cash for it….

    • Cecil S 23 hours, 1 minute ago

      What kind of price difference for 98 vs 99? I’m not too familiar with these years or denominations.

    So, there is a new auction coming up in January and I have my eyes on these beauties. Doubt I will win any as they tend to get bid up pretty high. What would pay for each one? I like the 1881-S MS67 the most and then the 1879-S MS65+ second.

    • Todd Abshire 1 week, 1 day ago

      The 80-S in the PCGS OGH gets my nod. I think they’re all nice, but I love the blues in that 80-S. Ironically, I do believe that the 80-S will fetch the lowest price of all 4 and the 81-S will fetch the highest price. I’ll take them all!

    • David Bloomberg 1 week, 1 day ago

      All beautiful, love the blue,but keep staring at the first one

    • Cecil S 1 week, 1 day ago

      I like that one as well Todd, just seems like it doesn’t have the same luster as the others though.

    • Robert Davis 6 days, 18 hours ago

      They are all beautiful!

    • Cecil S 1 day, 18 hours ago

      Well Todd, bidding has opened and the one you like the most is up to $800 already. $1,000 for the MS67, $350 for the 1879 MS65+and $350 for the 1884 so far.

    • Todd Abshire 1 day, 10 hours ago

      Wow! $800 already. That’s already more than I’d be willing to pay.

    This is my latest silver eagle just picture up from my mailbox yesterday, 2013 w proof, bought in Nebraska USA. Over the last years a bought over 200 coins in America and never lost one single coin perhaps because i use the same 5 – 6 dealers and i ques the are serious.
    oh, sorry about my brocken english.

    • Todd Abshire 1 day, 10 hours ago

      Congrats on all of your purchases Finn. I guess we take for granted how easy it is for us to find U. S. coins over here.

    Wish Capitol Plastics would make holders for 1999 & later proof sets. Haven’t decided yet how to display them. Here’s some of what I’ve done, along with my “birth date” set.

    • Cecil S 3 days, 18 hours ago

      Need to get one of those for 1979.

    • Jackson Turner 3 days, 18 hours ago

      Cool sets!

    • Todd Abshire 3 days, 13 hours ago

      I love the look of those Capitol Plastic holders. These sets are very impressive.

    • John Walter LaFollette 1 day, 19 hours ago

      Cecil S- I checked, have a spare ’80 & ’81, but no ’79.

    • Cecil S 1 day, 19 hours ago

      79 is my birth year, I have the set that is in the hard plastic from the mint, but these look better. Mine is also the SBA Type 2 coin. Which are these?

    Todd – check out the ebay auction “1976-S Washington Silver Quarter PCGS Secure+ MS67 Super Rainbow Toned”. Interested?

  • 1 day, 21 hours ago

    Todd Abshire

    Here’s another from my toner type set.

    • Andy Pilon 2 days, 21 hours ago

      I know I use this word a lot on this site – WOW! That is an incredible high grade toned half! Looks like JFK is having a party!

    • Todd Abshire 2 days, 20 hours ago

      Thanks Andy! I post pics to this site as well as a few other pages to show other collectors the beauty that nature can do with a coin over time and I certainly appreciate all of the positive comments. I do understand that toning isn’t for everyone, but I like to show this type of beauty to all interested. :-)

    • Cecil S 2 days, 19 hours ago

      I think the black holder around it really makes it pop.

    • Robert Davis 2 days, 12 hours ago

      Is that black around it the holder? I didnt know they do that ??

    • Todd Abshire 2 days, 11 hours ago

      The black around the coin is the background that the coin was photographed on. This is the typical PCGS holder without anything special about it. It just appears to be a black ring in this photo.

    • Cecil S 1 day, 21 hours ago

      The reverse toning looks like a confetti style in the photo, is that how it appears in hand?

    • Todd Abshire 1 day, 21 hours ago

      In hand, this coin doesn’t have nearly the depth that this picture portrays. It has mind boggling luster. The colors are accurately shown in this pic but like I said, not nearly as deep due to the luster on the coin. The toning is almost iridescent when viewed in hand.

    Here is another one that I saw with you in mind Todd. The guy wants $1,000. What do you think of the price? Seems high but at the same time, she is pretty!

    • Todd Abshire 2 days, 11 hours ago

      Wow! $1,000? This is not my kind of toning. I prefer 100% coverage of the obverse or reverse and I’m not partial to crescent toning at all. With that said, this one has some nice colors and the 64+ grade helps, but I don’t see anywhere near $1,000 for this coin. I could see it selling for $325 with the possibility of some collector giving…[Read more]

    • Cecil S 2 days, 4 hours ago

      The little purple spot around 10 o’clock is nice and vivid. $1,000 does feel pretty steep for it though. I feel like just about everything on eBay is highly marked up. Like they are just sitting out there waiting for a big fish to bite.

    • Stephen Skorupowski 1 day, 23 hours ago

      Sound advice Todd.

    • Todd Abshire 1 day, 21 hours ago

      Thanks Stephen!

    • Todd Abshire 4 days, 13 hours ago


    • Stephen Skorupowski 4 days, 13 hours ago

      Thanks, not bad for a MS61, wish I could find a nice Toned version but I figure once it sits in my type book I might get my wish.

    • Kayla Hoss 2 days, 16 hours ago

      Amazing coin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it!!!! Can you tell?

    • Lonnie Czinder 2 days, 13 hours ago

      Definitely a keeper!

    • David Bloomberg 2 days, 6 hours ago

      Love that mint!

    • Stephen Skorupowski 1 day, 23 hours ago

      Thanks Everyone!

    • Cecil S 1 day, 21 hours ago

      Nice coin, I’m just not overly fond of this design on the Obverse to be honest. The Reverse is nicely designed though.

  • 1 day, 21 hours ago

    Jackson Turner

    Here is a good looking one!

    • Andy Pilon 3 days, 17 hours ago

      Wow! That one hurts the eyes it’s so blazing white! That is one sweet Morgan!

    • Jackson Turner 3 days, 17 hours ago

      Thanks Andy. It’s not QUITE this bright in person, but is definitely one of the most vibrant white Morgans I have seen!

    • Todd Abshire 3 days, 13 hours ago

      WOW! This coin has it all. I’m not a big fan of white Morgans, but this one would fit nicely in my collection. :-)

    • Cecil S 2 days, 18 hours ago

      So bright in that photo it looks like it was altered. That’s a nice and shiny one for sure.

    • Robert Davis 2 days, 17 hours ago

      How is that NOT a cameo????

    • Cecil S 1 day, 21 hours ago

      I agree Robert, the reverse must not be nearly as shiny, only thing I can think of.

  • 1 day, 23 hours ago

    Kayla Hoss

    Well just wanted to stop by and say Merry Christmas to all my coin friends! I have not purchased anything recently, but I am hoping to get some for Christmas from my boyfriend. If he’s nice! :) Hope everyone is doing great!

    • Todd Abshire 2 days, 14 hours ago

      Merry Christmas Kayla and I hope you get a nice coin surprise for Christmas. :-)

    • Lonnie Czinder 2 days, 13 hours ago

      Merry Christmas to you! And if worse comes to worse, you can always give yourself a special coin!

    • David Bloomberg 2 days, 6 hours ago

      Merry Christmas!

    • Stephen Skorupowski 1 day, 23 hours ago

      Merry Christmas….!
