I always paid more attention to the prices of silver and gold more than the Dow when it came to coins, but I certainly wouldn't know.

For every action there is a reaction, called a correction where the bears recoup some of the gains.

 

Except for this year the Bears will win the superbowl!

How many times have they made it to the Superbowl, and then had the plug pulled? :ninja:

 

Once. Of course that's better than a lot of teams that have never made it to the Superbowl, or like the Detroit Lions, who came closest to the Superbowl by hosting Superbowl XL.

OSU just couldn't handle their own offense being turned against them. I laughed so hard it wasn't funny.

 

 

I've never really noticed a big swing in coin prices related to the stock market, other than bullion values.

I would guess that if a lot of money is lost in the market that could adversely affect any and all hobbies, especially coins. However, the negative effects would last as long as any such correction lasts.

As for the stock market, Gold and Silver prices, the weather, or anything else effecting coin prices, I doubt that very much. I've heard so many stupid stories from some coin dealers say hurry and buy this Silve coin because the price of Silver is UP. SO WHAT. The price of the coin is not based on the Silver price. Not even the stock markets ups and downs. True the weather may have an effect. For example if we have a heavy snow here in Chicago the coin shows will not be doing so good so the dealers will have to lower thier prices.

I've been collecting coins since my first coin in 1943 and have never seen coin prices drop at all. During some bad times they may have leveled off, but never dropped at least around me. Through recessions, stock market drops or rises, housing markets up or down, new coin issues, the Beanie Baby craze the coin market as far as I've ever seen has not dropped.

Of course this is based on the area I live. It may fluctuate in some areas such as states where there are not so many nice people like here.

Why feel bad for those that refuse to just do a little studying. If you go out to buy a coin, you should know what you are doing at least a little. To many people buy things without any information as to what they are doing. They buy cars, boats, coins, stamps, rabbits and on and on and on. Then you hear all the horror stories about the bad sales. You just can't feel sorry for everyone that falls into a bad situation due to thier own failure to learn about things. Don't forget that person selling the coins probably has a family to feed too.

im sure he did have a family to feed but he prolly would of sold more coins if he lowerd his prices.. but the thing that kicked me was he had ihc for 25cents each!!! i grabbed all 116 of em and gave him my phone number hehe he must of inherited the coins which is my thought..

Unfortunately there are many differences of opinions on coin sales among dealers. Some say charge as much as possible because you may never see the buyer again. Others say charge as little as possible in order to accumulate steady customers. Pending on the situation, either one could work. If your a dealer that has no plans to maintain a local location, then true you may never see the same person again. If your are around a lot, it may pay to attempt to build up a steady clientel. Of course I've talked to such dealers and they say that regardless of either situation, make as much as you can as fast as you can because tomorrow you may not be there to make more.
