The ANA YN Auction

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_32273

Today marks my first YN auction and I thought I might try to talk about it to help new young numismatists in following years. First off I recommend you get there a few minutes early as it starts immediately at the designated time so if you show up a few minutes late chances are you already missed a lot or two. Another big thing is the amount of yn dollars spent do not feel discouraged if there is somebody who is winning most of them you always have grab bags which go for a pretty low price. I saw the amount of yn dollars some people had and felt discouraged because of how little I had but I still walked with a great prize I recommend making blog posts like these twice a week as if you make the two blog posts a week every week for a year you make 2800 yn dollars without leaving the couch! I recommend setting up a game plan especially writing down max bids like for instance lot one bu 1909 wheat cent: 200 dollars Doing this helps to eliminate the chances of going over budget or paying for something you do not want just because you acted in the moment. Make sure you don;t make any plans at the auction can last 5 or 6 hours easily. Make sure to consider saving yn dollars for next year as 500 yn dollars wont get you a fraction of the winning bid on more expensive coins. I highly recommend you print out bidding increments and also a list of which coins you want also several reference books ie. the red book, the blue book, cherry pickers guide etc. and if you do not own those books several apps are available to my favorite being the pcgs coin facts app. I also want you guys to try and stay positive even if you aren't winning as the auction is meant to teach us about auctions with real money and also keep kids interested in the hobby. The ANA video is also ten seconds behind by the time auction end message is up they already closed the lot so don't get mad if it looks like you got the bid in before the end they do not play favorites. Hopefully this helped some of you guys out there and hopefully you guys enjoy the auction and get to take something home for yourself remember that in the end that there is always next year to it's your first year you will be able to get tons more yn dollars in the future and might even be able to win the gold piece they have ever year!

Ancient Coin of Unknown Origin

Ancient Coins | user_32273

I recently came into possession of an ancient coin I know almost nothing about them I was thinking Persian but I'm not sure if anybody knows what coin this is could you please tell me thanks! Of the 108 languages google translate recognizes this is not one of them as for the characters I haven't found anything like them I suspect this is a dead language which makes this search a more complicated endeavor.
