Premiums are down, maybe they only sell for about $120 now.

Wow Low prices , Well Im just wanting to finish the Registry Set , Just to get it out of the way . LOL . Im still working on the 1879S rev 78 set trying to get some higher grades on the VAM56 and 34B . That set has been my focus for the past 3 years . The 8tf and 7tf and 7/8 and 78S long Nock are just side line stuff that I want to complete and get to a #5 or higher rating in the registry at PCGS . Hard to do but fun .

That's funny... you're missing at least a zero.
When in doubt... don't.

Auction prices of SF Long Nocks have decreased. The 1878-S VAMs-60 and 72 have not been coming up for auction but my best guess is that if they do, their selling prices will be lower than historical auction prices. Not enough people are selling their VAMs 60 and 72, I encourage them to do so. Consider other hobbies, get outside more.

Nobody was buying SF Long Nocks, dozens were advertised in 2018, including a major collection that included Gene L. Henry's SF Long Nocks. I watched the Gene L. Henry Long Nocks sit unsold throughout the year, and still throughout January 2019 nobody was buying. Even people who were trying to complete SF Long Nock sets were not buying. So I treated myself and purchased most of them as a birthday present for myself in February 2019. It was me alone who piled cash into SF Long Nocks in 2019 and kept the market from entirely collapsing.

I finished my set in 2018. I'm always looking for the one coin I think I have a rational shot at upgrading.
When in doubt... don't.

Rare is still rare and I will be a buyer if the right coin is presented. Jim

Unless a better grade comes up better than you have there is no reason to buy it.
So there can be low grades for sale and no reason to buy.
To me does not mean no buyers.

Ok, I didn't accomplish all this on my own, I had help from God. With His assistance We managed to score about 90% of the SF Long Nocks offered in 2019. I can't imagine such an accomplishment without God's help. Anyway, Gene L. Henry had a nice collection of SF Long Nocks (I bought many in an effort to keep his collection intact), I'd wager that God had assisted this feller as well. Can't do too much in a lifetime without God's help.

Just as God granted finances to Hetty Green and then used Hetty to save America from financial disaster, God granted finances to me and then used me to save the San Francisco Long Nocks from crashing in value. Other VAMS took major hits in their values, but thanks to God and continued collector interest, San Francisco Long Nocks continue to sell for insane prices. Incredible story, couldn’t make it up if I tried.

February 2019 saw an unprecedented number of SF Long Nocks sold via the internet, hopefully this year the annual February SF Long Nock sale will eclipse the record set last year. With any luck, collectors will be throwing their hands up in utter disgust and selling off their collections now, for they well know that their VAM investments will be prone to greater losses in the future. Those with some degree of common sense are abandoning their VAMS and re-allocating their investment capital into platinum, marijuana, ammo and such. And many now see that February holds the greatest promise of financial return on their SF Long Nock investments, as historical records show that they are most likely to sell their coins then. These sure are exciting times as collectors shift their attention to the annual February San Francisco Long Nock sale!!!
