Re: How Long Have You Collected our Beloved Morgan Dollars ???

Anyone that knew my Maternal Grandfather would be kind and generous to describe him as a real Character (read nut.) His endless exercise of vocal exhibitions in Opera and Yodeling were a constant source of distraction, until he went outside to tend his peonese bushes. And sang to them. Aside from hi...

Re: Nice little upgrade for my 91o set

Thanks. I use a slightly modified drill press, and if my photos are left wanting, it is my fault.

Beautiful coin, thanks for sharing.

Re: Cannot bid on HA

I just got off the phone with HA, and they told me that I was not the only person that had that experience. The coin I tried to bid on would have been an upgrade for my study set, so I was a little bummed out.. I did win the previous lot, so things were working properly just seconds prior to the pro...

Re: O/T Metals /Volatility/Bigger Picture

I always appreciate your posts. And when my views or understanding differs from yours (as with every other expert I have encountered in life) I ask myself, "What did I miss?" There have been times when I was the smartest man in the room, but for the most part, I learn more by being the least educate...

Cannot bid on HA

A few minutes ago I was bidding on a coin that I very much wanted for my die study set, on HA's live online auction. As you may know, one has only a few seconds to submit a bid. When I did, I got this screen. And was blocked from bidding. Before I blame HA, I would like a little input from others. T...

Re: Pickin auction sites 2021 results sharing

I thought I was doing well with my paper investments - getting quarterly dividend checks with no labor input. But now that I see the real money is made in bottles and cans, there will be one more crazy old man pushing a shopping cart through the park.

Re: Because I couldn't afford the Morgan die cap

I believe that History is for us to learn from, not approve to of. With the topic of a coin featuring the Crossing of the Delaware, it might be appreciated by some if I share a related story of a participant -Jocko Graves. https://www.blackpast.org/african-american-history/graves-jocko-1764-1776/ Jo...

Re: Vampicker

One of the most important features of the ANACS holder is the word "Discovery" and/or the VAM designation. That makes ANACS holders tops in my opinion.
The market for TPG will change and these advantages will bear fruit.

I'm on the phone with ebay at least once a week. Their computer programs leave a lot to be desired. I would not feel qualified to criticize had I not written the programs in the field of Thermodynamics for the state university.

Re: Struck Thru Grease?

If you were to line them up in a manner to show the progression of the "feature" you might ask is it getting bigger, or smaller? My understanding is that regular dies do not progress to PL dies, but the other way around. Thus, this feature may be contributed to the use of the die. A result of wear o...
