No one answered the question. What do you do if your a shut in. You collect coins and you like it. Ok those of you who hate t.v. let me know why a person with disabilities should be denied collecting coins. Everyone has all the answers. Just because they can go to shows and dealers they don't care about anyone else. I read an answer I am ashamed of. Real smart answers. Well I would like to see how he would collect if the rolls were reversed. Yes I'm upset. As long as your healthy your happy. Do me a favor forget the disabled you already have. I only hope you can keep your health. Thanks for the blog it was the comment I was addressing.

Rick Tomaska refused to sell the Kennedy gold coin because it was so over priced. Everyone else jumped on the band wagon. I believe it was almost a year before he offered it. And then it was only two or three presentations. There are honest people on T.V. I would say a bunch of maybe two. I check prices of the coins being sold Tomaska basically only sells slabed coins. His prices can be high. But when there are no dealers and you can't go to shows no one has answered were are disabled suppose to by coins. I've been waiting for an answer no one seems to have one.

Rick Tomaska professional all the way. And to those who can go to shows or coin stores your lucky people. These sows provide away for disabled people to collect coins. Yes there are disabled coin collector's. And we enjoy the hobby like anyone else. You should walk in someone else's shoes!

No . Let me correct that if I want a good laugh and feeling low I will. The one show I watch is Rick Tomaska Don't get me started on Barry Chapel. I hope I spelt his name wrong. The greatest day in N.Y. history was they they removed his so called coin comedy show. When Rick left Barry that was his greatest day. HSN you need a mortgage to buy something. Rick I can't afford besides I tired of Kennedy's and Franklin's. However he has written five books and does know an awful lot about coins. But can't watch it for long. Here's my question. What do you do if your a shut in. Where do you buy your coins. I can tell you it's not easy. Good question good blog thanks for taking the time and remember these are my opinions only.mike

I record Coin Vault and Art & Coin TV for later fast forwarding. I look for chances to see new material. I can usually watch a 6 hour show in 10 minutes (means there is a lot of old rerun material). No, I have never made a purchase through TV shows. I have seen neat items on the TV that I later purchased through Local Coin Shows! I do not currently have a favorite personality. I used to like Barry Chappell until his medical conditions took such a toll on his presentation abilities!

As for TV I watch the coin sales and marvel at the cost and since I am a Paper Hanger I never see anything that I want. As for a favorite presenter I like Ricardo De Leon Tallavas and his personal view of the issues of coins from the Spanish Colonial Period to the modern issues. As for TV watching I suppose I watch way too much, my wife says so! Big Bang and Blue bloods are my favorites. Put the 1913 Liberty Head nickel back in Hawaii and I'd watch that Too! I look forward to the Summer Seminars for a nice getaway and coin discussions worth listening to and seeing friends from other times!

Personally, I DVR some to watch later when I can't sleep. They seem to do the trick. I watch the recordings at +300 speed. It's actually amazing how few coins they show in a 6-7 hour show. Iv'e never bought a coin from them nor do I plan to. Just go to their mother company online if you just have to have a certain coin. My favorite is Rick Tomaska. I have learned some things from him.

I just saw something else. This may or may not apply to this blog. I feel the USA Mint is fueling some of the absurdity seen on these TV shows. A new NGC label was just announced for the USA Silver Eagle. It features each of the 2 teams playing in this current World Series. Each team gets its own slabbed coin. Of course, the winning team will get an additional label. A pice of the action goes to MLB. Similar to the current baseball commemoratives. Take this along with all the different Kennedy label choices and I feel that the Mint has turned into a gift shop! Just my opinion.

Straw poll answers: (just one man's opinion) Do you watch Coin shows on TV? Not unless I want to get really angry - there's plenty enough out there to make one upset, without the assistance of such asinine programming. (Are they still trying to dupe the public into buying their gold and platinum-plated state quarter collections for the low, low price of only about $1000?!? PT Barnum was right!) How many hours a week? ZERO. Have you ever bought a coin off of a television program? No, I still have full control of my mental faculties (for now.) Would you buy a coin off a TV show? Never, not even in my most un-sober moments. Who is your favorite presenter? Any of them who have or are already preparing to take the six-foot plunge into eternal darkness. PS: Coin Nazis?! I'm pretty sure they're still sorting out the madness from the Kennedy gold sales; too busy to bother with our website for the time being, lol.
