Hello all and welcome to another blog!
Today I have several interesting purchases to share along with a few other things to talk about.
Let's start out with the purchases. So, on Fathers day I picked out a couple of nice coins on Great Collections and bid on them. I actually got them all for really great prices. I am thinking this may be because of the fact that they ended on Fathers day and less people were around to bid on the lots. Anyways, I won 5 really cool coins. Three are upgrades of some of my other PCGS graded coins, one is an addition to my toned dime set, and the last one is just a fun coin that I thought would be interesting to own.
First up is an MS-63 1941 walking liberty half dollar. This upgraded my MS-62 1942 walker quite nicely. It has a really cool looking reverse and a lot less problems than the coin it replaced. Next up, a really nice MS-63+ 1885-O Morgan dollar. This coin upgraded my MS-62 1884-O by quite a bit. It is blast white and has a lot less issues (and toning) than the coin it is replacing. Next up is a really cool nicely toned 1958 Roosie dime. I got this one for my toned dime set. It has some nice colors, including red, blue, and purple. The last coin is my first ever curved coinâ€”a 2014-D baseball commemorative half dollar. Although I haven't gotten this coin in hand yet, I can't wait until I do. Hopefully I'll remember to add some pics of it in-hand in my next blog (which will most likely be fairly soon).
Well, now that those are out of the way, how about I mention something exciting for us YNs. The 2022 YN auction is September 10th! I already registered, and if you are a YN and are planning on participating, you'll want to as well (otherwise you will not be able to win any lots). Although I don't have quite as many YN dollars as I did last year, I may be able to bump them up in the couple of months until the auction. I'm hoping they'll have the auction catalog out soon as I am very excited to find out what is being offered this year.
Lastly, I was just going to mention that I have recently been trying to clean out my collection a little bit. Mainly by selling off a bunch of cheap slabs. I just sold off the last of my NGC slabs (I've decided to stick with PCGS from now on), but I still have 17 PCGS coins (that have either been upgraded, or that I just don't want/need anymore) that I'm working on getting sold. This way I can focus on better quality, older, and cooler (and/or more expensive) coins for my collection. Better coins are also definitely easier to sellâ€”so that is also part of my reasoning.
Anyways, thanks for reading my blog, enjoy the pics (if I can get them attached this time), and have a splendid day!
