** Where Is My Collection Going? **

Coins-United States | Kepi

While on my coin collecting journey I've had to put some thought into what the heck am I doing... Where is my collection going? I think after awhile maybe we all have to ask ourselves a similar question. My collections venture into a lot of different areas. My favorites Mercury Dimes and Buffalo Nickels. From there collecting crazy bullion designs that caught my eye for one reason or another. Old stuff, new stuff... Now I've been into Civil War Tokens and Currencies. What next??? I know we have all said "collect what you like" and I believe that to be very true. So with that I have decided to add one very special piece to my collection each year...Something that I have always wanted, admiring from a distance and has a real numismatic value, history and desirability. Something serious for some serious $$$. An investment coin perhaps??? Yes! This is a great idea! So for 2018, I choose a 1955 Lincoln Cent Doubled Die Obverse, Graded AU58 by PCGS. To top it off my little beauty has a CAC sticker too! Now at this point I could list all the specs and history about this coin, but that's not what this blog is about. I guess I just want to say "buy what you like". But also think about the future of your coin collection, the pleasure it can bring to you now and the rewards later. Coin collecting *IS* an investment. Especially to our YN's. Try to collect the very best you can and you'd be surprised the outcome! I really enjoyed writing this blog and hoped you enjoyed reading it as well. Comments are always welcome. : )

** A Classic Trade Dollar**

Coins-United States | Kepi

This is by far one of my prized coins! My 1874 CC Trade Dollar AU 53 "CAC"... Was once in "The Col. Green/Eric P. Newman" Collection. I really feel so honored to have this piece in my collection now. I hope you enjoy the photo's! Thanks!

1881-S CAC Would You??

Coins | Longstrider

So, here are some photos of a new coin I won from an online auction. It's a beautifully toned, in my opinion, MS 65 1881-S Morgan Dollar. It also happens to have a CAC sticker. The "Green Bean". My question to everyone is: "Would you pay more money for this coin, or any other, just because it has a CAC sticker?"
