  14. Hi everyone I am very excited to tell you all that I have just opened my first website, With the sole purpoes of learning and sharing information about sample slabs. This is NOT a coin form, just a place for sample slab collectors to learn and soon even be able to help each other. The website will be a place that I will now be posting all my sample slab articles. I have been working very hard to build enough information in my sample slab articles, to create an archive, a place to read older articles you may need for information that may be of help to you with your sample slabs. The hobby has been growing so fast I can hardly keep up with it. As I have been saying for a wile now,samples are selling for fare more than ever before. I have just seen some sell for $200.00 to over $300.00 and the rest are not only selling for higher prices, but selling at a very fast rate. I hope this website will be of help to you, also help with answers you may have. It has just opened and I will admit it is still in the beginnings stages, I am learning just how much work there is to running a website, as well as writing articles. So as I learn more the website will grow, with information for the sample slab collector. Please let me know what you think, and remember, I am very new at this website stuff, so please be kind LOL. Here is a link to my new website All the very best Alan http://samplecoinslabs.com/index.html/2012/03/05/sample-slab-values-what-you-can-expect/
  15. <p>Hey Everyone I have been saying that samples are becoming very expensive and they are. But I also have been saying there are bargains out there if you take the time and look. Well I just won this sample for under $4.00 and the funny thing is I had forgot I even bid on it. Like I have been saying they are selling so fast that they do get missed. I have been seeing these same type of samples selling for around $30.00 . So keep looking they are out there. Sorry for the bad picture it is not mine All the best Alan
  16.

  20. Hi Everyone I just bought this large cent and after looking at the picture I saw two errors on the coin. The letter A in GRATIA, and the C in CANADA I made the one picture large so the errors are easy to see. I could use some help identifying these errors, as I know nothing about error coins Thanks Alan
  21. Thanks Guys Te great part of collecting these coins, is the prices are very reasonable. I paid less ten dollars for these coins. The really great part is the Victoria is an error coin. Alan

  23. Thanks everyone for the kind comments All the best Alan
