over the course of coin collecting i saw many adds and listings on multiple websites in which the seller had a picture of the entire lot and the description said what type of coins the buyer would receive. i know that these are not the best items to purchase as a coin collector but my question is are these pictures real and where exactly do these sellers get a coin lot of that size. most of these lots contain thousands upon thousands of coins (at least based on the content in the picture).
this blog is my opinion. I am open minded to any other opinions that people may have and you are free to ask any question on the topic as you please.

Memo to Ann Whitman (Eisenhowerâ€™s personal secretary) from White House Office staff member suggesting the use of the 48-star place card and envelope with the "coin" (thus forming the presentation set).click this --->>> (Video that I made)
I was inspired when I was on Twitter yesterday. Two beautiful photos of 1881-S Morgan dollars were posted. As a longtime Morgan dollar fan, I know this particular coin is one of the most attractive in the set. Strike is good, eye appeal is usually high. Many are available in Mint State. It's not an expensive rarity. It's an old fashioned silver dollar, over 130 years old.
these are some of my oldest coins in my collection (besides for roman coins). both of these coins had the possibility of being used in the colonial time in north america.
the original set cost of the collection was
i got the penny as a birthday present a while back and a few years later i was given the 1872 and 1864 as a 13th birthday present. i bought the 1868 in a lot of old nickels.
