  1. Most Russian coin collectors in the USA live in large houses anyway
  2. Greetings GXseries once appraised a regular hard plastic 1974 USSR mint set with blue plastic background at 1,000 euros. I know these days are gone, so what are those "unusual" sets are going today? Thank you.
  3. Greetings Looking to purchase USSR mint set 1970, buying other soviet sets and collections. Thank you.
  4. Let me speak for myself - I am a Russian immigrant, came to the USA in 1995 to get my MBA degree. Then decided to stay "one more year" to get professional experience in the field of Informational Technology... So I have been living here since. I think Russians in general have a much bigger appreciation toward history and cultural artifacts and that's why they would rather spend money on valuable pieces for their collection than on sports (for instance). And my personal opinion is that Russian coins are hugely undervalued now (compare with US coins) and represent an interesting investm
  5. Hello As a part of a large coin collection (that I am selling now on Ebay) I have acquired BU 1 Zloty with nice double die struck. The coin should grade at least MS63 if not higher. My question is - should I grade it or is it not worth the effort? How valuable are double dies in Polish coins? Thank you!
  6. Please help me to determine if this is brass or bronze (please note the coin id RD not common RB). <table style="width:auto;"><tr><td><a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/rRx6iX5pe44lC-4-7pwvbg?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_8N6Jdb9PPRc/Sot6yRXnF5I/AAAAAAAAGas/0YHM0P4Duj8/s800/Poland%201923%20Gr%201.jpg" /></a></td></tr><tr><td style="font-family:arial,sans-serif; font-size:11px; text-align:right">From <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/khokhloma/Coins?feat=embedwebsite">Coins</a></td&
  7. Great coin, congrats! I would not send it over to PCGS as they view toning differently and that might result in a lower grade
  8. Hello someone I know has found this coin (yes, just digged out from the ground). What do you think is the approx. value these (wild) days? Thank you.
  9. Dear fellow collectors, Would you please suggest a good coins shop in the Denver, CO area ? I will be there next week, especially interested in Foreign (Russian) coins. Thank you all!
  10. Some coins that cleaned "too good" might have that "fake" view in my opinion...
  11. Picture is worth a thousand words - check my ebay listing with detailed photo of typical "mule" coin from 1979: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...E:IT&ih=019
  12. I have few for sale if you are interested, all in the sets - 1965, 1979 and 1988. Please check out my Ebay store, 1979 will cost you just $30 (the whole set) as that mule is rather common. 1974 is VERY rare though.
  13. Hi, I will be in Chicago next next weekend and would like to visit some coins shop in the area. Do not mind driving a bit. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!
