Monthly YN auction wins!

Coins | JudeA

I received my Yn auction win in the mail today! It is a 1937 d, with an obverse strike through error. You can see the strike through much better when you see the coin in person. It looks like it is in between the N in IN and the G in GOD. I still believe it was wire or some grease. Feel free to comment what you think it is!

YN Auction Wins!

Coins | JudeA

I finally won a monthly YN auction! I won the October auction, lot #1. This was a struck through penny. I am not really sure what it is struck through, but I think it is at the top on the obverse. I will put a picture on here, please leave comments on what you think it is. You can also see the coin on the YN auction part of this website. Please tell me what you think this coin is!

Monthly YN auction glitch?

Coins | JudeA

I was on my email and I got an email for the monthly YN auction. The struck through penny looked cool so I went to go place a bid on it. I went to the YN auction tab and it doesn't show any lots on it. Can anyone else see the lots, or is this a real glitch? I emailed Sam about it, should be resolved soon. Comments?

2008 "Perfect" Oklahoma Quarter

Ancient Coins | JudeA

I got home today and checked the mail. I didn't expect it to come this early in the mail, but it did. I finally got my thing I won from the YN auction! The package included my quarter which is graded by NGC as being PF(70) Ultra Cameo with 90% Silver. It also had this holographic token thing in it. I don't really know what that is and if any other YN's got that could you please let me know. I also got my YN dollar requests, (YN80 total.) They also sent me a random 1 YN dollar bill, so now I have the type set to YN dollars. There is the YN100, YN50, YN20, YN10, YN5, and YN1. Also I received a 2019 D cent and a blank planchet cent in the YN dollar request form, I don't really know why I got that, but I'll take it! If you guys want to see the coin I won go to the 2019 auction catalog and it is lot #85. Happy Hunting and I hope that the other YN's will be receiving their wins soon to!

5th Annual YN Auction!

Coins | JudeA

September 14th marked the 5th, (my first) annual YN auction! I messed up my 6 day blogging streak, but it was totally worth it. The bidding increments were a huge help, and I feel like, based on what other YN's said, that this auction went a lot faster than the others. This auction took 4 hours. There were some amazing lots this year. The gold coin broke records when it sold for 4.7k YN dollars. I didn't get my first pick of what to get, which was the 4 coin set of PF(70) Lincoln Bicentennial coins. I did get something, a 2008 Oklahoma Silver PF(70) Ultra Cameo, which was my 2nd pick. I would like to thank the ANA for putting this together, especially Sam Gelberd for sitting in front of a camera for 4 hours, reading off lots for the YN's! Overall I had a great experience and will be back next year!

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?
