  1. Beautiful coin and great photo. Congrats on both.
  2. I was on the Fl Turnpike this weekend and stopped and looked for crushed penny machines. They used to have them at all the rest stops. None there. šŸ˜­
  3. Beautiful coin. Very nice photo. You're doing very well.
  4. Art1.2


    Beautiful coin. I hope someone grabs that one quickly.
  5. Artificus Platicus II --- a really bad translation of Art's Placque II.
  6. Nice grouping of elongated coins. I have always enjoyed these. It seems most of the machines are disappearing. A shame as they are such fun and make great souveniers.
  7. I like Ikes...I like Morgans....I like Peace....I like.....
  8. Slabbed Ikes are usually neat coins. The true uncirculated versions and the proofs show such nice detail. It seems that many of the circulation strikes were poorly done from the start and thus lack detail and nice fields. I hope you do well on your quest.
  9. I used to really enjoy the dealers junk boxes. Cheap and lots of neat stuff.
  10. No shows for me. Didn't even make the local show the last few years. šŸ˜«šŸ˜«
  11. I haven't even seen a coinstar machine in a year or more.
  12. Nice tripods are not very expensive and will save you a lot of work and headaches. It needs to be sturdy but not backpackable and so the older metal models will keep the cost way down.
  13. Ike proofs, esp the clad coins are not really worrh very much so putting them in an album should not really be an issue for many collectors. I believe Dansco makes an Eisenhower Dollar album thtpat has spaces for the clad and silver proof coins.
  14. Iā€™d guess around 35-50 cents depending on where you sold it.
  15. I think the good old days of coin collecting are past - for now. Even the local club and shows and such are not really even close to the way they used to be. Small crowds. Dealers only looking for elite buyers, etc.

    Beautiful coins Colin. And a nice auction. I will start the bidding. $5.16
  18. I have a few that I've gotten in change this year. BUT I spend money so infrequently now. I used to pay cash for everything but switched to one of those cash back credit cards. The rewards don't amount to a lot but I started using it for some big purchases where it was beneficial and got into the habit. Now I'm using it most of the time. Get like 1 or 2 or 3 percent back plus like 3 cents per gal on gas. No big deal but you have to pay with something. I do have a few "store" cards that refund like 5 percent or at certain times 10 percent. I don't buy anything that I wasnt going to buy anyway and I never let the balance sit. On my "books" it's the same as cash but there's never any change to search.
  19. Beautiful and a wonderful price. The coin is worth far more that that, imho.
  20. I started a collection of commemoratives several times but never followed through on it. Many are available in decent condition at a reasonable price and I do like the designs of most. Not sure why I never collected them. I have three or four different in my type sets.
