In my last post, Buying and Selling Part 1, I described how I sold circulated gold coins to acquire mint-state gold coins. In this post I will talk more about the proceeds from the other sales to finance two upgrades and a new purchase.

An Opportunity I Couldn't Pass Up

Coins | coinsbygary

I wasn't looking to buy this 1835 Half-Cent piece, but I came across it searching e-bay listings and couldn't pass it up. Fortunately, the coin it replaces in my collection was targeted for an eventual upgrade. In the new piece I get exceptional color and a very strong strike. In other words this coin has exceptional eye appeal. It also fits my plans to add the best looking coins for the price I can afford into my 7070 Type set.
