  1. It'll probably be a lot of reference book work.
  2. Excel spreadsheet? I don't know... check on Google for reviews and such.
  3. Experience has taught me that rare coins rarely come to you by chance. I think uncirculated Morgans have grainy luster, my guess is that you haven't seen much silver yet.
  4. It has less wear on it, maybe what you see is some original mint luster.
  5. I've broken ANACS, PCGS, ICG, and NGC holders. ANACS's newest holders are popable, they can be taken apart by bare hands and persistence. The NGC holders I took apart had a rubber O-ring insert around the coin, the edgeviews sound similar. PCGS holders are like NGC holders. The ICG holder was splintered to liberate my MS66 Morgan.
  6. I agree with carl, make sure your family is aware of the situation. The 1922 you found most likely is cleaned and whizzed up. From what I've seen of cleaned coins they almost always have an unnatural shine.
  7. I once received a phony from Canada. Claimed it was a U.S. government grant check.
  8. Is the last one toned or stained?
  9. Hi guys, what's up with all the spammer stuff? I've been gone for a while I see. By the way an RSS feed is feature on your browser that allows you to "subscribe" to the content on a web page. Every time the web page's content is updated (more stuff added) the feed sends it your RSS feed subscription. I probably didn't describe it very well, but I'm not an expert on it either.
  10. I use a Redbook for relative prices, just to give me an idea. I also use Numismedia when Redbook doesn't list a certain variety. However nothing comes close to eBay's hard-fact true prices. Especially if you're a seller.
  11. Saflips all the way! Easy to use, attractive, and affordable. Although I admit to using slabs for better coins.
  12. Do you think that'll effect the price? I mean there's a lot of demand and limited quanities. I don't own any gold right now and it makes me concerned.
  13. Anyone else know anything about this? Seems pretty surprising in my opinion. The mint says they're temporarly out of one ounce gold eagles.
  14. So I see. I've used microsoft cashback before, but I don't know if they offer a referal program.
  15. You know I, and the others can't resist saying something like "wow!" or "nice!" don't you?
  16. No....! hahaha unfortunately for you no one that I know of wants to lose their 65' fancy 5 for your buffalo. Sorry...
  17. Pretty good, I'll have to do some research on my own. I like the simple ways Bigcrumbs does it though.
  18. Does that clear things up a bit? If you want to know more just sign-up and see what I mean.
  19. Sorry for the deceptive writing. No he did not use THIS site he used bigcrumbs.com. It sure looks funny though, know that I think of it.
  20. I was searching the net, when I found out about this guy on some other forum who said he used this website to save over 20% off his eBay purchases based on the sellers fees. I thought that sounded pretty good, so next thing you know I've signed up for some cheesy sounding website called Bigcrumbs. I was starting to regret it, but I knew I had to give it a chance to prove itself. So I went ahead and bought me a nice toned Morgan dollar I had my eye on for the last couple of days. It cost me close to 300 hundred dollars, so I check back on the "Money saver" website about 3 days later and true to
  21. Here's a question that's been burning a hole in my mind. How do coin dealers always grab the best deals from coin shows, online, other dealer, clients, e.t.c.? You must have a way, otherwise you'd starve to death on the already low profit margins.
  22. I wish I could photograph coins well enough to capture their true color!
  23. I'm not so sure what your getting at, but my guess is you think there might U.S. Mint opperated shop. I really don't think so, except maybe at the mint itself. You should look for coin shops nearby the city you're going to visit. I don't really know what North Dakota tax rates are.
  24. Sell it for as much you can get, just make sure it sells.
  25. I buy whatever I can afford. I prefer slabbed coins though.
