The New Morgan's and Peace Dollars 2021

Coins | Mike

Well I hope everyone is ok.. I'm writing this about the special coins made by the mint this year. I said coins because there not commens. There not Medals. They are U.S. coins. I'm not a big Morgan Dollar fan but when I heard about these I set up a budget right away. When I received the first one in the mail there was a thought in my mind that I was at a table playing poker and throwing these up to place a bet. It was remarkable. These I can't believe the luster and not a bag marks for miles. I also ordered the Peace dollars they come next week. I can only imagine what beauty they bring. . I was lucky to get a chance to order these. It's all luck. There is no talent needed to get these. I signed on received some messages but I did get my orders. I never thought the mint could pull this of . Your talking over a million coins and mailing them. The one bad thing is the packaging. It's terrible. Cheap cardboard. I was lucky again they held up. To see a coin the way George T. Morgan ment them to be seen is breathtaking. I expected chaos based on the mints history. Yes I received messages but I just signed on again and the order process was smooth. Just like a regular coin. So some of the problems were gone. Many people are looking at these as.a continuation of the set . The rest of the order the Peace Dollars will be here Tuesday. I would be happy with a MS 69. I didn't buy the for value. Most of you know I do not sell my coins. They will be left for my boys. What can you say about a perfect Morgan. I believe he's looking down and is very pleased the hobby loved his hard work. To think the Barbers wanted nothing to do with him. There was no love lost. Morgan worked in his apartment for 80.00 dollars a week. Back then it was allot of money.. There is nothing else to say about these coin they speak for themselves. I will enjoy them for a very long time. I hope you enjoyed this short read of some wonderful coins. You all be safe and stay well. Thanks Mike.

Two Forgotten Nickels

Coins | Mike

Hi everyone. I'm sorry I have slowed down. It will pick up soon. Today's blog is about two Jefferson Nickels. How many coins have value in that set. Well I will mention one I will not be writing about. The 1941 D over horizontal D. You can pick that up for 10,000. But today I will be writing about the 1994 P and the 1997. So what is so famous about these.? Well the 1994 came in a set the mint made. It was called the Thomas Jefferson Coinage and Currency set. They put this i n with a two dollar note I believe it's a star note very low serial number. It has a Matte finish. That's why you get the beautiful hue around it. Now they made 167,703 of these. It also came with a silver dollar. Now the price of this set when it first came out was 34.50. So that's a very low mintage and a very low price. The nickel when you consider the millions and millions made everyday is a very small mintage. They put the nickel in with the mintage of Philadelphia that year. Be sure that's were it as made so you have the entire mintage. So unless you in a about this set you would never know about this great nickel. All three pieces go for a nice price. But I bought this for the set. It tells the story of Jefferson. It's informative and has three nice items. No you won't get rich but you will make allot more than a nickel!

Easy Way To Get Your Proof Set Graded!!

Coins | Mike

Hi well I hope your all ok. The Pictures are up!!Thanks Pete. Well this is a simple but interesting blog. Every year the mint comes out with there sets. Proof and others. .I noticed a company was selling these. One big thing different. They graded in the lens!!! Yes they were more money but easier than sending them to N.G.C.. Now if you look at the pictures you will see the lenses are sealed with silver tape. The lens has a sticker on telling you they are Gem . Now to send that in would cost allot more than sending them in coin by coin. Even the box has the N.G.C. label. It says N.G C. On the lens. . Sealed on the sides and top. Now I don't remember how much these cost.. I bought this set. I thought it was something different and allot simpler. The company sends them in and sells them to us. It's a great to store your coins and have them graded at the same time. I did buy this for one year and I saw one this year so I guess they still do it. Gem Brilliant usually means M.S.65. Could you get a hgher grade.yes you can. But packaging them paying for each coin and my all the fees this seemed like something that would catch on. Like I said I did see a company selling them this year. It up to you.I bought this set on a whim. . Only one year. I have books these coins to in. So I wasn't going to buy two sets a year. I thought I would show these to you. There are company's thinking outside the box. Either way they will be more money. But they have to be cheaper sending them in. You also would be a to be happy with a Gem Brilliant. Think about it let me know what you think.
