Re: Who else is growing a Quarantine Beard?...

Not sure who all got word, but I was in the hospital for just over a week. Had to have a couple surgeries that saved my life. Working on recovery now from home as an outpatient. Since I will probably trim down my beard and cut my hair tomorrow, I thought I would post an updated shot. Lost a lot of ...

Re: Neat mail call... Odd Plactic & Toned 1F Peace

It is great. I mean in general Peace dollars don't seem to tone the same as Morgans. Why or am I crazy?๐Ÿ Oh, well the leading theory is "new" Planchet wash & prep techniques relative to how they did it for pre-21 19thC. The newer dollars weren't conducive to toning. Same reason why 21 Morgans share...

Re: COVID Business Failures O/T

I feel extremely lucky to live in the Bay Area of CA. My county was the first to shut down in the country and hope we're the last to open back up. As of Friday it will be mandatory to wear a face mask in public. (which I already do) Have you read about the new first known people to pass in the US f...

Re: Neat mail call... Odd Plactic & Toned 1F Peace

Score is right. Great pick up. Your gamble paid off. What is it with my beloved Peace dollars and this kind of toning?? Thanks๐Ÿ My pics dont even do the neon pop color justice. Very unusual for a Peace but also doesn't look out of place. It does have some sort of very light, cloudy brown-ish layer ...

Neat mail call... Odd Plactic & Toned 1F Peace

It seems this plastic is pretty rare. First time I've seen one, so I bought it for giggles. The other one tho, whoo boy. A sexy toned 1F Chinbar! (I could just barely make out the possibility that it was a 1F from pics, I was 50/50) the color was a complete surprise. Looked fugly and dark in pics. S...

Re: OT Original bag of 1964 JFK Halves

What, you think that's excessive for what is at best a $30 coin otherwise? Well, when you're at the point of not being able to decide whether to admonish them for gouging, or praise them for the sheer size of the big brass balls it takes to offer them at that price, excessive seems like an understa...

Re: OT: old foreign overdate

I'm not much of a goldnut but here are a couple of sweet pieces I own. The slabbed one is one of the 50 Dave Emslie struck & the raw one is one of the ultra rare 8 that Dan Carr struck. These are the ONLY 2 of either type I had -and still have- ever seen available on the secondary market and I own t...
