    Some "Toners" would be cool to find in that roll.
  5. How do we see the photo?, wheres his "Album"?.
  6. PROOF SEATED LIBERTY!!!!!!!!!!!! The Owl is nice, but Ive seen better examples, The Seated Liberty is a GEM!!
  7. Another good reason to Slab a rarer type coin is upon your death, heaven forbid, your next of kin will get a fair assesment of you collection rather than being in raw state. Most kin will just want to sell and wont know anything about the coins or very little... Slabbing the "BETTER" coins, I would rest peacefully in my grave, (A little better!).
  8. I have had a few Slabbed coins in the past, I' am sort of old time when it comes to these. I feel that the "Good" points of haveing a coin graded is when you have a rare type of (Die Variant), or a 1922 p lincoln, 55 double die ect...or to authenticate a type coin. I do believe this will add some value premium to the coin rather than being in raw state. On the other hand I have experienced Dealers who will push this as explained when they sell you these coins, but when you go to sell the same "Slabbed" variant coins, they wont give you the premium of being slabbed! they will just gray sheet you regardless (Wholesale), but will most absolutely charge you for the same coin slabbed when it's back for sale in their shop!. So....The other helpfull advice for slabed coins is that it does take alot of the gradeing questions away from the dealers who otherwise would really "DOWN GRADE" your other wise "RAW" coins!.Yes, very few graded coins I will disagree with the grade, but all in all the coin has been checked-out by the pro's, so when I do sell my "Slabbed" graded variant coins to a dealer in the future, you bet if he wants it, he will pay me for it!!!!!!!Thats why dealers love it when you bring "RAW" coins in for sale, and hate it when you bring in "Slabbed" coins, because they know their chance for "DOWN GRADE" has been taken away but will still try and give you a wholesale "RAW" coin price. I love Raw coins and will still keep them that way, only exception is the rarer types mentioned. Happy collecting!!
  9. Hard to see the coins, they are as follows...1823(Ugly 3 variant)half,MS-64. 1833 quarter,with rare b2 reverse die, AU-50. the Dime is 1836 EX-fine, the Half-Dimse is 1834 MS-64..all nice toners.. Iam workin on the Bust dollar, and some of the older series.
  10. Reverses..I cant seem to scan very good......
  11. Here are some of my new additions!all toners...... Hope the scan works...
  12. I to have seen the "History channels" presentation on the US mint, way cool!!!!!!
  13. Stujoe is correct with the old style english "Dismes". I need one someday, but these are very, very pricy!!$$$$.The one shown has a great strike on the obverse, but looks like a filled Die on reverse.
  14. Welcome!, I to am a type US collector, I also have an interest in the Greek coins as well....
