Know this is only my opinion and I may be wrong, But it seems to me that most people don't have any savings at all. Am I wrong to feel this way? I see LONG lines at food banks..🐍
Yup. And right now government is sending a message "don't worry about saving, we've got your back."

"None of the coins was examined for variety as attributed in Comprehensive Catalogue And Encyclopedia of U.S. Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars by Leroy Van Allen and A.

Re: New Legal Tender Morgan & Peace Commem...

Interesting that the legislation is sponsored by congresspeople from Kentucky and Missouri. Each coin will be priced at cost + $10.00. " 40 percent of all surcharges shall be paid to the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri, for the purposes of education and commemoratio...

Re: delete please

I have always thought the Comps were a weird and distracting way to help collectors attribute VAMs, especially when they are presented with no caption and no arrows highlighting the reason for each individual photo. Never said anything out of respect for those who have spent so much time putting VW1...

Re: O/T.. oh, this just happed too! (((DROOL ALERT)))

So, Original, with Eagle flying upward (alignment I) or restrike, level eagle (alignment III). I'm guessing Original as the restrikes usually have broken reverse die.

She looks a lot like Miss August - from messydesk’s 2019 calendar. But Miss August is a 1908, and, imho, much prettier.

Re: Ebuyer Beware!

True. But eBay policy says that any coin NOT of U.S. Mint origin be stamped 'COPY'. Auction is in violation. And a violation of the Hobby Protection Act of 1973. “An imitation numismatic item which is manufactured in the United States, or imported into the United States for introduction into or dis...

Re: 2019 Calenders

When my calendar arrived, Mrs. Neals whisked it away to wrap for Christmas. The photos are as spectacular as ever! And, to my surprise, there’s a photo of a coin that I have - the 26-S Oregon Trail. Of course mine isn’t anywhere near as spectacular as the beauty in the calendar!

Just curious - what is the silver object at lower right of the picture? Call me crazy, but it looks like a depiction of Rosie from The Jetsons.

Re: O/T KINDA Collecting/Investing

Well, this is just not correct. Coins are subject to capital gains tax...but most coin sales do not require reporting to the IRS, therefore you can simply not report your gains on you tax return. That doesn't mean the gains weren't taxable.

Re: Ebuyer Beware!

Hi, ORG! This is a running thread where our experts post links to suspicious eBay listings. Each entry will have a link to a coin for sale that is either mis-described, or, in many cases, a copy. These listings are also reported to eBay, hopefully resulting in the listing being canceled before someo...

Re: Getting to know you...

Hi, this is Neal. Same username as before. Have slowed down collecting some due to unexpected expenses and some health issues (better now!) but still check in here daily.

Many kudos for all the hard work on the site conversion, messydesk and others!
