The ANA Money Museum - Treasures of the deep

Money Museum | LNCS

I recently visited the ANA money museum. This is the first time I was able to view the treasures of the deep displays. What an incredible set up. Really makes one wonder what else may be laying at the bottom of the sea waiting to be discovered.

Web notes

Paper Money-U.S. | LNCS

The BEP's experimental web-fed press was used from 1992 to 1996. Does anyone still collect these? I had a bunch nearly 20 years ago, but spent most. I still have a couple in my small paper money collection.

Prices - comparing PCGS vs NGC vs CAC vs No CAC

Coins-United States | LNCS

For the past 15 years, I have kept track of prices realized from major auctions for Liberty Head nickels. For fun, I thought I would compare those graded by PCGS and NGC (with and without CAC stickers). I did this for grades MS65, MS66 and MS67. I started the run in 2008 as that was the earliest result that included a CAC sticker.

Liberty Nickels and the price of color: The holder, the sticker or the coin?

Coins-United States | LNCS

During the 2014 Heritage ANA auctions, I was watching a particular coin very closely. The coin was a 1906 Liberty Nickel, in an older green holder (large size, not rattler), with a Gold CAC sticker and very pretty color (lot 7286). For me, nicely toned Liberty Nickels are few and far between, so this coin had me interested. Quickly the pre-auction bids went over $2,000. (the coin is listed at $510 in the PCGS price guide, and had previously sold for $578 in 2003).
