  1. Well, apparently I actually joined this sight over a year ago but never posted. Upon rediscovering it...I tried to register and I got a message saying my email was already being used so I tried to long in and here I am. So, I'm a new posting member (who apparently has been here a while). Anyway, I just wanted to say "hello." My name is Richie and I'm a 22 year old from Oregon. I have been collecting coins for about a decade and recently became interested in paper currency because I started working at a bank. A little about me...I recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a
  2. I have always considered PCGS and NGC to be about equal grading companies. I know some people have preferences one way or another (for example, I prefer NGC because I like their holder better)...but both are top tier grading companies. Now, with that said...it seems that PCGS coins carry a premium with it comes to coins graded a 70 (even over NGC). PCGS doesn't post their grade populations for free like NGC does (as far as I know) but I would imagine that PCGS grades far fewer coins 70 than NGC. I don't know for sure...but that would make sense to me anyway.
  3. The only cents that were special during that era were from 1943-1946. 1909-1942 and 1947-1982 were standard cents. As everyone knows, 1943 cents are zinc plated steel and are therefore "silver" in color. The cents from 1944-1946 were made from metal which had been used in the war. Specifically, spent brass casings from ammunition was melted down for them. Because of this, the coins contained tin. Uncirculated examples are said to be slightly more yellowish in tint than a standard bronze cent. Unfortunately, I don't have a unc example to post. However, all Lincoln cents made from 194
  4. OK, well I went ahead and ordered them. Hopefully it will work for me...it sounds exactly like what I want. I used those brand of pages for my sports card collection when I was younger and I like their product. Hopefully the sleeves will work too. Thanks for your help!!!
  5. I hope this is allowed...but I think I found what I was looking for on eBay. Does this look right? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...A:IT&ih=007 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...A:IT&ih=002 I don't want to buy the wrong things...and I don't want to damage my notes.
  6. Do you know where I could get the pages and sleeves online?
  7. I have been trying to use the link to my BankNoteBank page and it won't seem to work. I get an invalid user ID error. Does anyone know what the problem is? http://www.banknotebank.com/?collection=69CamaroGuy I copied the link straight from the page. Even when I click on it when I'm in "my collection" page (where I can add more notes) I get this error message.
  8. I have been trying to do this same thing, but I would prefer to put the notes in a sleeve first. What I would like, is to find a somewhat rigid sleeve (mylar-d?) and then put them into the pages. Then, if I wanted to add a new note (and thus rearrange) I could. It sounds like these pages are safe and will hold a sleeve. Is that the case?
  9. Hello everyone, I am new around here. My name is Richie and I am a 21 year old college student. I began collecting coins when I was about 12 years old and I recently have returned to the hobby after a couple year break (I didn't have the money or time for a while-I still don't but I missed collecting). Anyway, I collect mostly American coins, my favorites being the Morgan Dollar and Indian Head Cent. Just a little info about me personally, like I said I am 21 years old and am a senior at the University of Oregon. I am working on my B.S. in Biology (with 2 minors, one in Ch
