Thanks to @BigNubNumismatics

Young Numismatists Exchange | TheNumisMaster

Hello folks, and happy afternoon! I recently made a trade with a fellow YN, BigNubNumismatics! Due to covid and money issues, this year has been really hard for my numismatic growth. I haven't acquired any new pieces really at all this year, and decided to trade among some fellow YNs to change that. We arrived at a fair deal, and would love to share with you all what I received. First off, I got a Canadian cent with a chipped planchet. I have always been fascinated by errors, and need one of these for my collection. Among those errors I was missing was an partially unplated coin. I received a partially unplated penny, along with an off-center penny. I have a planchet/blank for every common US coin besides the penny, and BigNub provided one of these for me as well. He, as well as some of you, knew that I love to collect proof coinage, and cut me an AMAZING deal on nearly $24 face value of proofs. On top of that, $6 in SMS (Special Mint Sets) and souvenir sets. As the icing on top of the cake, he included 2 coins for my NGC registry. I received a 1948 D Franklin Half MS-63 FBL graded by NGC, and a 1957 D Franklin Half MS-64 FBL graded by PCGS. To wrap it all up, he gave me a silver nickel, as well as a G-4 Buffalo Nickel as a gift. I especially appreciated a 1974-S Ike proof he included. It was made of 40% silver, and 60% copper. I needed one of these silver Ikes for my type set. Once again, thanks to my fellow YN, BigNubNumismatics! Thank you all! Have a wonderful start to this new year. Until next time, cheers, NM

Trading and dealing done right can be really rewarding. Its hard to deal and trade with dealers, but with collectors its easier. Good work.

I am currently unemployed so I can focus on school. I plan on working next summer. Currently, everything I do is via trade, and if I need money, ill sell some of my coins.
