re: Tips from MT Coin Collectors


Dont forget about the 1995W Silver Eagle. Looking at 3k+ for PR69DCAM.

Also for those looking for an "O" Morgan collection what are you considering good condition? Im in the process of putting one together and have noticed its gonna be quite pricey. Looking for mainly MS65 and 66 but will have to shoot for some AU55 and AU58 grades with the more difficult years.

That's going to be the final piece. There's a NGC PR70 Ultra cameo on eBay with a buy it now price of $17,500. Way over price IMO

For the Morgan O dollars, I'm going for those that are either: MS 63 or above, just look really new (usually uncirculated and ungraded), and for the rarer dates (1893, 1895) I am more concerned about just getting an uncleaned/non-damaged coin that is still legible.

Trying to add a few images of a small part of my collection but when I go to preview the post all it shows is a red X. I have a photobucket acct and click on the img button to the right of the post box and paste the link in there but get a red X. For the people who have uploaded images can someone help me with this matter.

Unfortunately I am not looking to sell any of the Eagles. I am putting together a full set for myself. The only one I am missing is the 1995W. I have all the proof and uncirculated ones as well as the multiple coin eagle sets.

Very Nice! I enjoy looking at what everyone has.

I will try to take some pictures soon. Would anyone, I'm looking at you Drew, mind posting the pics if I email them to you?

ETA: Photobucket and all image hosted sites are blocked here at work.

Thats about the going rate for the 82"O" based on previous sold listings in that condition.

Yep. Solid deal--you bought it on the lowest end of the price spectrum.

Lilyank: why the tape on the mercury dime - a graded coin?

That's an impressive collection man. Very nice variety you have. How long have you been collecting?

matthew25 - I bought it from a dealer and he put the tape on there writing his price. Some dealers will write their price on the coins as well as little notes.

drewnbrla - That is a very small part of my collection. I have been collecting for around 20 years.

For all you American Eagle fans, the 2013 proof is available from the USMint starting today.

Thanks for the heads up. Did they mint any special edition proofs for 2013 or just a regular proof?

ETA: Nevermind, just checked. Regular proof this year.

In may or june they will be issuing a 2 coin proof set. I havent read much on it but it will more than likely sell out even if it is a 2 coin W set. It would be more rare if they had a different mint mark or capped the W minted number.

Sounds good. I'll be on the look out for when it comes out. I picked up a 2007 & 2008 proof last night and ordered a 2013 proof from the mint as well

Bought a 1881-CC from my buddy who runs a gold/silver/coin shop for $180. It looks to be VG/VF as far as grade. I'm going send it off to get graded as soon as it arrives. Below are a couple pictures:

What shops in BR are reputable? And preferrably not in sketchy areas?
