I have satellite TV and Internet and a long run of storm clouds just went over which also knocked power out for two plus hours. The three cent silvers are collectible and two cent coppers. Back then you could buy a mug of beer for one cent. The four dollar Stella is the most beautiful coin ever made and one of the most expensive.

edit: I could never afford a four dollar gold Stella but have completed the three dollar gold Princess Indian Head series.

I'm thinking it might be good to have a couple rolls of current uncirculated pennies. I expect there will be a rush on them when the US stops making them.

I sort coins while watching tv. It relaxes me.

If I ever find anything good it's all bonus. Doesn't cost me anything.

My advice is never buy coins off ebay. China has the fake US coin market cornered and Bulgaria has the fake Ancient coin market cornered.

I bid at auction with either Heritage Coins or David Lawrence Coins. I also used to buy from Teletrade Coin Auction but they went out of business some years back. I think Heritage could have bought that company because when I search Teletrade Coin it refers me to Heritage. I never buy raw coins and only PCGS or NGC slabbed coins.

I have slowed down on coins. But I only by direct from US Mint when I do buy any. When I do, I look for gold or silver, I prefer the proofs (yeah yeah I know probably a waste of money on proofs) and I look for the ones with low mint numbers. I love the American Buffalo series, but they mint to many of them.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

I don't how to do it but if you are a coin dealer you can buy directly from the mint for a little over cost. The Mint promotes coin collecting obviously because it is in their best interest. The Monster Green Box is what I wanted from the Mint and I am glad that I didn't buy it because silver crashed.

Condition, Date/Mint Mark and Rarity (Population) are what I look for.

They buy whats considered bullion coins. They also only buy in bullion price, which is why proofs really are not worth the money you pay. PGM and their first strike grading system is a fucking con. There is no such thing as a first strike or certified first strike proof coin. If its a proof the dies are new and are cleaned continuously as the coins are struck. There is no way in hell you can tell if its a "first" strike or the last strike in a proof series.

Quote:
The United States Mint has received inquiries from consumers regarding use of the term "first strike." The term has appeared in connection with the advertising and grading of 2005 and 2006 silver, gold, and platinum proof and bullion American Eagle Coins, and the new 2006 24-karat proof and bullion American Buffalo Gold Coins. Currently, there is no widely-accepted and standardized numismatic industry definition of "first strike." Coin dealers and grading services may use this term in varying ways. Some base its use on dates appearing on United States Mint product packaging or packing slips, or on the dates of product releases or ceremonial coin strike events. Consumers should carefully review the following information along with each dealerís or grading serviceís definition of "first strike" when considering a purchase of coins with this designation.

The United States Mint has not designated any 2005 or 2006 American Eagle Coins or 2006 American Buffalo Coins as "first strikes," nor do we track the order in which we mint such coins during their production. The United States Mint held a launch ceremony for the 2006 American Buffalo Gold Coin on June 20, 2006, two days before its release on June 22, at which two proof coins and two uncirculated coins were ceremonially struck. However, those coins were not individually identified and were put in regular inventory after the ceremony. The United States Mint did not hold any striking ceremonies for the 2005 or 2006 American Eagle Coins.
