Annual YN Auction

| JudeA

Well guys, the YN auction is 4 days away. I am so excited, this is my first year doing this. First of all, let me just say how great the ANA staff is on putting all of this together! They do all of this for the YN's, and it has really helped me be more interested in coins. In this blog, I am going to be highlighting what I think are the coolest things in the auction.Lot #1 - 1828 Half cent: Even though this is in terrible condition and has enviormental damage, it is still an almost 200 year old coin. If you are looking for something old or to impress your friends with, then this is a great coin. Open is only YN10Lot #3 - 1909 VDB Brilliant Uncirculated: What a beauty! This coin would definitely get a high grade by anyone! It is a semi key date in the Lincoln cent series and a high grade coin. One of the lots I am looking forward to. Open is YN50Lot #30 - 1893 Morgan Dollar: A key date to the Morgan Dollar series, it has been cleaned. But if you collect Morgan Dollars this would be a great way to obtain this pricey example. Open is YN100!Lot #51 -1927-B SWITZERLAND 20 FRANCS – CHOICE BRILLIANT UNCIRCULATED: Sorry for caps, but I was to Lazy to type all of that out. As always, sometimes the highlight of the auction! The gold coin! This year the coin has almost 1/5 of an ounce of gold. After the intermission make sure to be there if you want to bid on this. Open is YN250!Lot $90 - 1960 proof set with small date penny: The small date penny was HOT on the market in the '60s. It has cooled down, but it is much scarcer than the large date penny. It is also a relivitaly old proof set. Nice coins, proof set collectors take notice! Open is YN60Lot #99 Series 1953 $5 Silver Certificate: I always find old notes interesting, and here is an old(ish) $5 silver certificate. Perfect for the bank note collector, also the only US bank note offered this year. Open is YN10Lots #101-110 Grab Bags!: I would recommend buying one of these, I don't know what is in them, so if anyone wins one, could they please share what you got? You can only get one of these if you did not get ANYTHING from the auction. Open is YN25 and they all went for YN300 and YN250 last year.That's it for this blog. Good luck all YN's!Question for the blog - If you could own one coin, what would it be?

Thanks for making the 1953 Silver certificate only oldish. I to am a 1953 vintage. I agree with Mokie. Us old dudes are starting to think about licking the bucket. Donating is a great way to pass our passion for coins on to you YN's. I try to do my share. I like it that you consider a cleaned coin or some other "problem" a great chance to get a higher end coin. I have done so personally. Have fun and good luck. My go to coin would be the mysteries and elusive 1964 Peace Dollar..

this year's YN auction is certainly looking to be a good one. I personally have never won a grab bag, but I believe former YN Kenny has a video of when he opened a grab bag he won one year. I don't remember the name of the YouTube page though.... I think it's something like, "Coins with Kenny". I agree with Mokie, this is definitely a great time to be a YN. Do you mean coin from the auction, or in general? I'll state one for both I suppose. From the auction, it would probably be the either the 'o' mintmark lot(I love getting coins from closed mints), or the gold lot , though both should command high prices. If speaking in general terms, hmmm, that's tough, as there are so many coins I could chose from. Probably it would be either a Ultra-High relief 1907 St. Gaudens double eagle, or a 1876 CC twenty cent. But then again, a high grade Fugio copper would be cool too, and I can't forget a key-date Liberty Walking half dollar with FD(full details). I just don't know, too many choices. Thanks for the blog, "Break a Die" at the auction!

It's Mokie

This is the Golden Age for the Young Numismatist as the Old Guard starts to ponder their mortality and think back to their own salad days of Coin Collecting. Have a great time during the YN Auction but don't forget to Pay It Forward when your fays of youthful vigor are nigh.
