Just to help me keep track of what I buy for the week-

 

 

7/16/06 - Won on eBay - received in mail 7/15/06:

 

 

1954 BU Franklin Half Dollar

 

 

I graded it MS-60 (I grade conservatively)

 

 

I will also be trying to get pics up on my collection over on OMNICOIN as soon as I can. Will probably be putting a couple up each day. Only one problem is I don't have a digital camera so I will be trying to scan them, which doesn't always represent the coins very well. I also have most in Dansco albums and hate to take them out so I may just scan the ones I have in airtites or 2x2 cards at the moment. Thank you all for having a good forum here and I look forward to posting more of my buys of the week.

Sorry folks and those who e-mailed me and asked, but the pics for OMNICOIN may be a while. I tried scanning in one of the graded American Silver Eagles and it just looked pitiful. I will have to wait until I can get a digital camera which may be a bit before I can do that as we are pretty financially strapped at the moment from our move to Tulsa, OK. Wife unable to find a job yet and I dont get rich from building cabinets so I will try in the near future to get something up on the site.

Hi again akdrv,

 

I tried those tips on the website you sent me and the scans looked just as bad. I am beginning to think it could be the scanner. It is about 6 years old and may not be as good as it once was. It is a Canon Canoscan N650U and was one of the top of the line when I got it. I am going to try and mess with it a little more this weekend. Take it off the USB hub and maybe hook up directly to my comp and see if that helps.

Finally got some pics up on Omnicoin. They are only scans but I would say they turned out ok. Alot of my other coins mentioned are in albums and I am going to find a way to do that this weekend and get a few of those up as well. Coppers are going to be a challenge but we shall see.

 

I haven't had many buys lately, that is for myself, I have bought some things for the wife's world collection. Mostly Canadian nickels for her Gardmaster Canadian nickel album. I did get a few Franklin halves in between all of that however. I will add them and try to get scans of them up later this afternoon.

Hi all. I haven't posted anything lately as my hours have been cut back at work and the bills continue to increase (especially the electric, $227 for a cruddy 2 bedroom apartment). Hopefully some day in the future things will be better as the weather gets cooler and maybe we will get some of our hours back. So for now, until this happens I wont post anymore buys. :ninja:
