Re: 2021 Morgans and Peace Dollars - Orders are processing

I also received an email that my 3 s Mints have shopped. Then I received a missive from Santa Claus saying not to expect them until Christmas.

Re: Sending 2021 Morgans/Peace for grading-

According to coinweek, D and S mint 2021 Morgans are indeed minted at Denver and SF, hence the use of a mint mark rather than a privy mark.

Re: 2021 Morgans and Peace Dollars - Orders are processing

Yes, they charged my card for 3 S mint. Status shows "processing." I guess they need our $$$ so they can go out and buy the silver they need to mint our Morgans, LOL.

Re: Pennies and nickels

According to the linked chart, a penny costs 1 1/2 cents to make, so there must be a cottage industry where people melt pennies to make dollars. After all, where are the 8 billion pennies minted last year? However, before you all start melting down your pennies, here's some math...a one cent coin we...

Re: OT A Little

“Anything other than the gold and silver coins are not worth the time to collect in my opinion unless you are going for mint errors or some strange varieties.” For years I have gone to the local coin shop and sifted through his buckets of foreign coins. At 10 to 15 cents apiece I could pick out a h...

I'm going to wait for the S mint issue, which has an actual mint mark rather than a privy mark. June 1 at 12:00 EDT.

Re: Maybe Off Topic, But Not By Much

My Utah goldbacks arrived in the mail Saturday. As you can see from the photo they do have a stiff curl and do not lie flat easily. I purchased from one of the dealers linked from goldback.com and paid roughly $3,455 per ounce plus shipping/ I could not find dimensions listed anywhere so here they a...

Re: Award time... me too!

Couple of dumb questions...
1) It looks like the reverse die is rotated about 120 degrees. Is that normal?
2) What is the meaning of the hand with pointing finger above the 15?
Thanks, and congratulations!

eBay Managed Payments Restriction

I hope it's OK if I posted a question for Mrs. Neals. She is an ebay seller using their "managed payments." She tried to list some coins for sale (not Morgans) but the listing was rejected. "No coin sales are allowed using manged payments." I really don't know much about ebay selling procedures, but...

Re: Best Place to Keep My Little Treasures

Thanks everyone for the helpful replies! I moved everything to safe deposit yesterday. Took a little shoehorning, but everything fit into my 10 x 20 box. Marriage license might have gotten a little wrinkled in the process.

Best Place to Keep My Little Treasures

All the fires we had recently has me questioning whether my little treasures (Silver $) are safer at home in my home safe, or tucked away in the bank safe deposit box. In the (hopefully unlikely) event our house burns down, I don't think our home safe is rated to keep silver from melting - advantage...

Re: USPS Shipping What a Joke

It would also save if they were to skip Saturday delivery, or even go to alternate day delivery MWF or TThS by route. Is there anyone out there who would be seriously hurt by this?

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."
