Great Day at the Coin Show!

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Today I went to a coin show and boy did I have some great finds! I finally got a seated liberty half dime! I needed one for around 6 months. One step further to completing my collection. I also got a 1921 P pitted reverse Morgan dollar, though I don't know the exact VAM. I found it for $45 and the person who was selling it didn't know it had a VAM, so I got it. It is in MS-63 and is worth over $100. The pitting is under the tail feathers of the eagle on the reverse. I also got a 1921 P Morgan dollar with four dots underneath the left tail feathers. It is in MS-61. Please tell me if you think you know what these VAMs are. Sorry there are no pictures- I can't take any right now. See you later!

American Innovation One Dollar Program

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Hi everyone. I have decided to start collecting American Innovation one dollar coins. But not from the U.S. Mint. Way too expensive. Instead, I'm getting them for around $2.50 apiece from ebay. I'm getting them all from the Philadelphia mint. The American Innovation dollar program is a nice program to start collecting coins from! They are also not too expensive, so you can afford them.

Coins I got

Coins | CoinCollector7777

I went to CA and my grandma gave me and my brother some coins. She had a half dollar folder halfway filled up, a Sacagawea folder, and a nickel folder. The half dollar folder had two proof half dollars! Also, she had a Chinese dragon dollar, but we can't figure out the date. It can sell for $3,500 but might be fake. I hope it's not! When I went to California, I didn't bring my laptop so that's why I haven't been on lately.

I'm Back!

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Hi everyone. I haven't been on ANA for 2 weeks because I went away to sleepaway camp. I forgot to tell everyone that. But I'm back. I might not be on that much in the summer. And I forget how to make forums. How do you do that again?-CC7777

Possible New Auction Record!

Coins | CoinCollector7777

When the May edition of The Numismatistcame, I read somewhere that the guy (Weitzman) who owns the 1933 double eagle is going to auction it. It also said he is going to auction the rarest stamp in the world, and another rare stamp. People estimate that the double eagle will sell for 10 to 15 million dollars, breaking the auction record. It will take place on June 8. Weitzman is 79 years old. He said: "No one takes a U-Haul to the cemetery." He says he's going to donate the proceeds to various charities.

2021 Morgan Dollar

Coins | CoinCollector7777

For this blog, I will be talking about the expensiveness of the 2021 Morgan dollar. First of all, I don't think I will be able to buy it without complete satisfaction because the silver value is (I'm pretty sure) literally worth like less than $20. The U.S. Mint is going to sell them for $85 (according to Google). $65 for what? The rest of the metal in the coin? The design? Is it high relief? Or does the U.S. Mint want to make money even though they'd probably make more if they sold it for like $75 or something? My conclusion: the U.S. Mint is WAY too overpriced.

Would Coins Be Worth Anything If Nobody Collected Them?

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Yesterday, I was on a Facetime call with my grandma and grandpa. My grandma thought that if nobody collected coins, then there wouldn't really be a value for collectible coins. We collectors only make them valuable. For example, if only two people collected coins, and they had all of the 1913 Liberty nickels, then they wouldn't sell them for a good price to each other because they were not in high demand. They would sell them for like a dollar. But since there are a lot of collectors that want them, and there is a low mintage of them, that makes the 1913 Liberty nickels rare. So if there were not any coin collectors, coins would only really be worth their melt value.Thanks for reading!P.S. My grandma had a Morgan and a Peace dollar, the Morgan a 1896 P dollar, and the Peace was I think a 1923. I was hoping that the 1896 had an S mintmark, but it didn't. It looked like it was in AU. (She sent me a picture.)

How I Got Interested In Numismatics

Coins | CoinCollector7777

This is how I got interested in Numismatics. One time two relatives came over to our house to visit us. One of them told us about the 1943 copper penny. Me and my brother thought we could find one in circulation. We didn't know there were only like 21 or so minted. I knew I had a 1946 wheat cent, so I looked up how much it costed. I thought $42,000 or whatever. We kept on searching. Then suddenly, we stopped searching. About a year later, we started again. We just couldn't resist it. Later, we found out we couldn't find a 1943 copper sent, so we just started collecting. Then we went to a coin store. I'd say we spent around an hour there, and we didn't get anything. Next time we went, we got some stuff. Then we get more and more interested in coin collecting, and we get better and better. Suddenly, I just started looking under my mom and dad's bed, and guess what I found? Two 1994 World Cup Proof and Uncirculated sets! I was so excited and showed my brother. We looked up how much the gold coins were worth, and bragged that we had real gold coins (made of some silver and I think some nickel). After that, I went to some more coin stores. And bought a lot of coins. I think I spent over $600 on coins! We are here now (or at least I am lol).

1878 S Morgan Dollar VAM?

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Just yesterday I was looking at some of my Morgan dollars for VAMs. On my 1878 S Morgan, in the motto, the "r" in "trust," well, the curve is cut off. It looks kind of like a little l. You can see part of the curve, but it looks kind of like a die break right onthe r. Do you think it's a die break or just chipped off? If you look at it real close, you can see that that part is shorter than the rest of the r.
