​                             All the rolls are sitting under our blue lights same as everything we see. or buy for a week.


6/13/2020            Some how my system let me use small letters instead of all caps

                             I received 5 E-mails asking me why I answer E-mails from people.

                             Today in our  society nothing is really secret & I as usual am curious & it only took me 2 days to find out who sent me the E-mails.

                             I was surprised when I found out it was vest  pocket coin dealers who could care less about the business or customers..

                             So, if you leave me a E-mail be man or Woman enough to let me know who you are or I will find out & send you an E mail.

                             Here is a question  What happened to the big shot dealers saying keep the coin for 10 years to make money. Ya for them.

                             I bought a 1895 S Morgan Dollar   in 2016 from one of the largest coin  dealers office in New York & California for $28,600

                             with the economy the way it is this year I wanted to sell the 1895 S Dollar & when I was told the price I said that has to be wrong.                                             Before I decided

                             to sell the coin I took your advice & found out how many had been slabbed  PCGS Quantity of 4  & NGC a quantity of 12.

                             I am far  from not understanding this in this grade has to be Rare or close to rare depending on what big shot coin dealer you are                                             are telling you at  the time. . The sales guy said I can give you today $8,200. I said excuse me I have only had this coin 6 years

                                    I paid $28,600. The sales guy really made me mad & said that is not my fault but this is a good price today.             

                                    



6/2/2020               I JUST RECEIVED A E-MAIL FROM A NOT HAPPY  CUSTOMER. HE BOUGHT FROM ME BACK IN 4/4/2019 A 1895 S CAC 

                             MORGAN DOLLAR. HE SAID EVERY ONE IS SAYING ONLY BUY CAC  I  FOUND HMI A COIN & HE BOUGHT IT. HE SHOWED IT

                             TO FRIENDS WHO BOUGHT ONLY  CAC COINS .

                             LOOK AT THE BID  4/1/2019  IT IS $23,000  PUT IT IN HIS SAFE & SATURDAY  HE PULLED OUT SEVERAL COINS HE WAS GOING

                             TO SELL. HE WENT TO HIS LOCAL COIN SHOP ABOUT 30 MILES AWAY & THERE WAS A LINE OF PEOPLE WANTING TO SELL. &                               HE KEPT HEARING YOU ARE KIDDING ME . EVERY ONE WITH MORGAN DOLLARS MS65 - MS67 WAS SAYING THEY WERE                                       LOSING TO MUCH MONEY TO SELL.. 

                             WHEN IT WAS HIS TURN TO TALK TO A SALES PERSON THEY SAID THE BID WAS NOW $18,000 & THEY COULD PAY $14,000.

                             HE SAYS HE WAS SO MAD HE HAD TO ASK THE SALES MAN AGAIN SAYING LOOK  THIS IS A CAC COIN..  

                             THE SALES MAN SAID I KNOW BUT LOOK AT THE BACK COUNTER & A LOT OF THOSE WE BOUGHT TODAY ARE CAC DOLLARS

                             & PEOPLE GET PULLED INTO THIS ONLY BUY CAC & CAC IS JUST AS BAD AS UN  CAC. HE SHOWED  THE SALES PERSON

                             PERSON THE OTHER COINS & WALKED AWAY SHAKING HIS HEAD.

​                             I TOLD HIM TALK TO HIS ACCOUNTANT SEE IF HE COULD GET A  TAX WRITE OFF.

                             I SEE A LOT OF CAC COINS & MANY I SEE ARE BETTER OR  NO DIFFERENCE FROM A NON CAC COIN.

                             THIS IS THE ONLY BUSINESS YOU SEE PRICES DROP ALL THE TIME BECAUSE ONLY A HAND FULL OF PEOPLE CONTROL                                     THE MARKET  BUT REALIZE THE NORMAL NON OLIGARCHY COIN DEALERS ARE IN THE SAME BOAT YOU ARE IN, THEY BUY                                 A   COIN  MS64 - MS67  & THE NEXT MONTH IT DROPS IN PRICE.  THERE ARE NO CONTROLS ON THE COIN MARKET.

​                             THEY LOVE TO USE THE WORDS    COLLECT & ENJOY YOUR COLLECTION DO NOT  WORRY ABOUT THE PRICE IT IS THE                                       ENJOYMENT OF COLLECTING.


6/1/2020               I HAVE SEVERAL PACKAGES I HAVE RECEIVED & I WILL START LOOKING AT THE INVENTORY SO I CAN SEND OUT SOME                                       CHECKS TO PEOPLE. I WILL TRY TO PACKAGE UP SOME MORE OF THE COLONIALS. I AM FALLING BEHIND & LIKE IN MY                                       STORE YEARS AGO THINGS ARE ENDING UP IN THE BACK ROOM OR TODAY ANOTHER LARGE SAFE.

                             DOLLARS UN SLABBED & SLABBED.. I ONLY BUY MORGAN DOLLARS THAT ARE TRUE GRADES. MANY MS64, MS65, & MS66                                   DOLLARS ARE NOT THE GRADE ON THE HARD PLASTIC  HOLDER  . MY PERSONAL THOUGHT IS THE SLABBING OF COINS                                   IS   THAT A CERTAIN NUMBER HAVE TO BE SLABBED PER DAY & BECOMES AN ASSEMBLY LINE. BUT THE NEW OLIGARCHY                                  DOES  NOT CARE.  THEY WILL TELL YOU THE SLAB COMPANY GUARANTEES  THE GRADING & YOU CAN SEND THE COIN IN                                  TO THEM.                   .      LOOK AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT HAND SIDE OF    US  COINS

                           AS MANY THAT KNOW ME  KNOW I VACATION FOR 4 WEEKS (FUN WORKING VACATION FOR ME)  IN ITALY BUT DONT TELL MY                            WIFE IT IS FOR WORK . SHE LOVES VENICE BUT I  BOUGHT A COIN   SHOP IN A BEAUTIFUL OLD SECTION ON THE OUT SIDE                                 WALLS  OF ROME ITALY  I MET A NICE YOUNG MAN ALEXANDER VANOZZA & HIS SISTER ONE DAY PLAYING GOLF. THEY TOLD                             ME  ABOUT THERE MAMA   LUCRETZIA & PAPA CESAR.  & THEY INVITED US TO DINNER. 

                           ALEXANDER VANNOZZA  HAD 3 BROTHERS & 3 SISTERS . ALEXANDER HAS 3 BOYS AT THE TIME 6, 9, &14 & 3 GIRLS 2,4,11.

                           ALEXANDERS WIFE WORKS FOR A GOLD CHAIN MANUFACTURER  IN TIVOLI. 

                           PAPA OWNED A VERY SMALL COIN SHOP & MAMA MADE LARGE 6 FOOT CANDLES FOR THE CHURCHES. CESAR HAD LESS                                 THAN $4,000 WORTH OF ANCIENT COINS BUT IT WAS HIS LIFE. I MENTIONED TO ALEXANDER I WOULD LIKE TO BUY THE                                       STORE & LET YOU &  YOUR SISTER BE IN CHARGE  & LET PAPA THINK HE IS IN CHARGE.  

                           I TOOK ALEXANDER TO THE SWISS BANK CREATED AN ACCOUNT PAID ALEXANDER & HIS SISTER $6,000 FOR THE BUSINESS.

                           TELL PAPA I BOUGHT THE BUSINESS &  SEND THEM ON A VACATION SO WE CAN MAKE CHANGES.. WE TOURED EVERY COIN                             SHOP IN ROME  & STARTED BUYING  & DIDENT STOP FOR 2 WEEKS. ALEXANDER HAS TO REMIND PAPA EVERY ONCE & A                                   WILE THAT HE DOES NOT OWN THE STORE ANY MORE BUT HE IS IN CHARGE. FOR A YEAR BOTH ALEXANDER & HIS SISTER                               WORKED THEIR REGULAR JOBS BUT ALWAYS HAD THE COIN SHOP OPEN LETTING PAPA SELL ALL PRICED ITEMS. PAPA HAD                             A   HARD TIME WITH SALES SLIPS SO ONE OF HIS DAUGHTERS HELPED AFTER  SCHOOL ALEXANDER  & HIS SISTER START                                 WORK  AT 6:00 IN THE MORNING & WORK 6 HOURS A DAY. FOR DIFFERENT COMPANIES 

                           THE NEXT YEAR THE BUSINESS HAD GROWN TO WHERE ALEXANDER & HIS SISTER WENT FULL TIME IN THE STORE

                           IT HAS BEEN A LOT OF FUN. 


5/24/ 2020           I SOMETIMES CAN NOT WAITE TO LOOK AT COINS FROM  BEFORE 1890 FROM ANY COUNTRY BUT THIS LOT OF COLONIAL 

                            COINS MY ESTIMATE SO FAR 300 + IS A COLLECTION THIS LARGE  I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY   TO

                                   SEE OR BUY SUCH A COLLECTION.        

​                             I HAVE LOOKED AT WHAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND SO FAR  THE  TALBOT ALLUM & LEE CENT.


5/20/2020            WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF LAYING OUT OVER 50  COLONIAL COINS FROM THE INVENTORY I JUST BOUGHT FROM A COIN                              SHOP  SEVERAL DAYS AGO. I WILL GRADE THE COINS 3 DIFFERENT TIMES IN 3 DAYS. I RETAIN A PHOTOGRAPH FILE OF ALL

                            COLONIALS FROM OVER 200 COIN DEALERS PLUS MY OWN FILE OF WHAT I HAVE HAD IN STOCK FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS.

                                  I AM IN NO HURRY TO SELL THESE COINS SINCE THEY SAT IN A DESK DRAW FOR ALMOST 50 YEARS IN BROWN ENVELOPES.


5/17/2020            HERE IS A QUESTION I GET ASKED AT LEAST EVERY 5 YEARS. IT IS A GOOD QUESTION & WORTH THE TIME TO ANSWER 

                            IN NUMISMATICS PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS A KEY COIN?

                            ​AS YOU LOOK AT ALL THE DENOMINATIONS OF US COINS YOU WILL FIND A KEY COIN TO BE A COIN THAT IS LIMITED IN 

                                  THE QUANTITY IN A SERIES OF COINS LIKE INDIAN OR LINCOLN PENNIES BUFFALO NICKELS OF EACH YEAR PRODUCED. 

                            LETS SAY MORGAN DOLLARS AS AN EXAMPLE  THIS WOULD INCLUDE EVERY MORGAN DOLLAR THAT THE  US MINTS.

                            PRODUCED FROM ANY OF THE US MINTS.

                            A KEY DATE OF  ANY DENOMINATION IS ALWAYS THE ONES HARDEST TO LOCATE. a KEY COIN CAN COME FROM ANY OF                                   THE MINTS.  THEN YOU WILL ALSO SEE THE WORDS SEMI KEY COIN THIS ALSO IS A COIN THAT YOU WILL FIND DIFFICULT TO                              LOCATE

                            MANY KEY COINS ARE DIFFICULT TO LOCATE & EXPENSIVE

​                            MORGAN DOLLARS    ALL THE CC DOLLARS ARE RARE.



5/13/2020            THROUGH  5/18/20 I BOUGHT INVENTORY FROM A COIN SHOP THAT WAS CLOSING. IT TOOK 12 HOURS A DAY  FOR 5 DAYS.

                             THIS WAS A LOT OF FUN FOR ME. ONE DRAW IN HIS DESK HE HAD NOT LOOKED AT A COIN IN THE BROWN ENVELOPES                                       FROM 1955  THROUGH 2015.   . LIKE MOST OF US OLD TIMERS WE NEVER HAD TO WORRY ABOUT MONEY . WE BOUGHT

                             & SOLD & MADE A LIVING & HAD FUN WITH WHAT WE WERE DOING. . HIS WIFE EMPTIED OUT THE DRAW & PUT EVERY                                         THING IN A BOX 16 X 16 INCHES. THE BOX HAD 1600 COINS IN IT & SHE MARKED THE BOX $1600. HER HUSBAND SAID WELL

                             THAT WILL ALMOST PAY FOR OUR VACATION. THE DRAW ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DESK WAS SO FULL SHE HAD A HARD                               TIME PULLING THE DRAW OPEN &.SHE SAID I NEED TO MAKE A FRESH POT OF COFFEE THEN SHE MADE FRIED EGG                                           SANDWICHES & WE STOPPED TO EAT.. SHE WENT BACK & EMPTIED THE OTHER LARGE  DRAW IN THE DESK. I WAS SO                                         GLAD SHE PUT THE BOXES ON THE DESK TO FILL.. SHE WAVED TO ME & ASKED SINCE I WAS  PAYING SO MUCH FOR THE                                   FIRST BOX  WOULD I PAY $600 FOR THE 2ND BOX. SHE SAID MY SON WILL TAKE THE BOXES TO YOUR CAR FOR YOU.  

                             THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE SLAB COIN IN THE SHOP  HIS SHOP WAS 40 FEET LONG & 28 FEET WIDE HE BUILT IT HIMSELF

                             ON THE LOT BESIDE HIS HOUSE THEN . ON 46 ACRES ALL HIS KIDS BUILT A HOUSE , BARN & FENCING  & NEVER MOVED                                     AWAY. EACH ONE RAISED A DIFFERENT FARM ANIMAL & CROPS..

                             THE STORE WAS VERY NEAT & CLEAN & THEY WERE DRESSED VERY WELL. HIS WIFE MADE THEIR CLOTHS. SHE GOT MAD                                 ONE DAY AT  MONTGOMERY WARDS IN 1955  BECAUSE THEY WANTED $3.00 FOR A SHIRT & SHE NEEDED 6 OF THEM.

                             SHE NEVER WENT BACK . MADE CLOTHS FOR NOW ON FOR PEOPLE & HER FAMILY & SOLD CLOTHES IN THE STORE. SOME                               TIMES MADE MORE MONEY THAT HER HUSBAND.  HER 2 DAUGHTERS NOW MAKE CLOTHES FOR MANY WOMEN WHO                                           WORK IN THE BIG  ELECTRONIC COMPANIES & HER OLDEST SON & HIS SON MAKE REAL LEATHER SHOES & BOOTS FROM                                 THEIR COWS EVERY  YEAR  SOME TIMES THEY HAVE TO BUY COW HIDES BECAUSE OF ORDERS FOR CHRISTMAS.

​                             THE BOYS HELPED ME PUT EVERY THING IN THE TRUCK & THANKED ME FOR BUYING THEIR DADS INVENTORY.

                                    


5/11/2020            HERE IS A GOOD QUESTION . I BUY SILVER WHEN WE HAVE EXTRA MONEY AT THE END OF THE MONTH.

                            WHY DID THE PREMIUMS FOR PHYSICAL GOLD & SILVER GO UP IN PRICE SO FAST WHEN THE SPOT PRICES DROPPED.

                            SIMPLE TO ME BUT NOT UNDERSTOOD MANY YEARS AGO.   SPOT PRICES ARE BASED ON HUMAN PROJECTIONS  OF THE 

                            FUTURE  PRICE. 

                            PHYSICAL GOLD & SILVER ARE BASED ON A REAL TIME SUPPLY & DEMAND IN THE MARKET.  THIS CAN STILL BE CONFUSING.

                            IN A NORMAL MARKET THE SPOT & PHYSICAL PRICES USUALLY MATCH ALL THE TIME.

                            NOW LOOK BACK AT PREVIOUS RECESSIONS.   WHEN THE ECONOMY SHUTS DOWN STARTS PROJECTIONS FOR FUTURE                                  PRICES DROP ACCORDINGLY MOST OF THE TIME WE END UP WITH INFLATION

                            MANY OWNERS OF THE PHYSICAL METAL SEE LITTLE REASON TO SELL  , BUT AT THE SAME TIME BEGIN TO BUY.

                            THE BIG RECESSION I SAW MANY OF MY CUSTOMERS KEEP BUYING KNOWING THEY WERE GOING TO LOSE THEIR JOB

                            WITHIN DAYS OR MONTHS.  ONE FAMILY VERY NICE PEOPLE WHEN THEY BOTH LOST THEIR JOBS THE SAME MONTH HAD                                  BOUGHT 4 MONTHS WORTH OF CAN FOOD & MEET TO FREEZE TO LAST THEM  THEM HOPING THEY WOULD BE BACK TO                                    WORK WITHIN THAT TIME. THEY HAD A 4 BEDROOM HOUSE & MOVED THE KIDS IN WITH THEM & RENTED OUT THE OTHER                                  BEDROOMS BY THE WEEK. THEY HAD ENOUGH GOLD & SILVER TO PAY FOR 9 MONTHS OF THEIR HOUSE PAYMENT.

                            PLUS HAD $20,000 IN GOLD LEFT IN THE SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX.

                            WE TOLD OUR CUSTOMERS IF THEY HAD TO SELL DO IT BEFORE EVERY ONE ELSE SOLD BECAUSE THE PRICE WOULD

                            CONTINUE TO DROP.  MANY OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAD GREAT BUY OUTS FROM THEIR COMPANY & WE TOLD THEM TO                                        WAITE TO BUY. WITHIN 2 WEEKS THE PRICE DROPPED IN HALF. WE WENT TO THE SMELTER EVERY DAY. THE PRICE

                            DROPPED SO LOW WE TOLD PEOPLE NOT TO SELL IF IT WASENT AN EMERGENCY . 

​                            AS TIME WENT ON THE INCREASE IN DEMAND ALONG WITH THE DECREASE IN SUPPLY RESULTED IN THE SLOW DOWN OF                                PEOPLE SELLING THIS NOW DROVE THE PRICE BACK UP FOR THE PHYSICAL METAL

                            SINCE I WAS 20 YEARS OLD I HAVE NOT TRUSTED PAPER MONEY.  LOOK IT UP & YOU WILL FIND IT IS A PROMISSORY NOTE

                            ISSUED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.  IT IS BACKED BY NOTHING  & I MEAN NOTHING..


5/9/2020              I RECEIVED A QUESTION THE FIRST IN A WILE. PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME A US WAR NICKEL..

                            MY DAD TALKED TO ME & SHOWED ME  SILVER WAR NICKLES MY GRAND FATHER HAD  IN A BOX IN THE CHESTNUT BARN.

                                  THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION.  THAT MUST BE EXCITING TO HOLD COINS BELONGING TO YOUR GRAND FATHER.

                            MY GRAND FATHER & GREAT GRAND FATHER ALSO HAD A BARN FOR THEIR CHESTNUTS. MY GREAT GRAND FATHER HAD

                            110 TREES.  YOUR COINS YOUR DAD SHOWED YOU WERE MINTED BETWEEN THE YEARS OF 1942 & 1945. DURING WORLD                                  WAR 2 . THE METAL CALLED NICKEL WAS NEEDED DURING THE WAR SO A DECISION BY THE GOVERNMENT TO CHANGE THE

                            THE METAL IN A 5 CENT  COIN TO  A 35% SILVER WAR NICKEL. 

                            THE DECISION OF HOW MUCH METAL WENT INTO THE NICKEL WAS .06626 OUNCE OF WHAT WAS CALLED FINE SILVER.

​                             NOW IF YOU TURN THE COIN OVER & LOOK AT THE REVERSE YOU WILL SEE HOW TO TELL THE WAR NICKEL FROM ALL                                      OTHER NICKELS  THE COIN WILL HAVE A LARGE WHAT THEY CALL A MINT MARK  PLACED DIRECTLY ABOVE  MONTICELLO.

                                  YOUR DAD PROBABLE TOLD YOU THE FACE ON THE WHAT IS CALLED OBVERSE IS THE FACE OF THOMAS JEFFERSON.

                            ON THE REVERSE OF THE NICKEL IS A GREAT LOOKING BUILDING CALLED MONTICELLO.

                            THIS IS A GREAT COIN TO PURCHASE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO OWN SOME SILVER OR INCREASE YOUR GRAND FATHERS                                      COLLECTION



5/1/2020               I UNDERSTAND THE COINS SHOWS IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA WILL BE OPENING  THE END OF THIS MONTH OR BEGINNING                              OF JUNE  WHEN I FIND OUT I WILL POST THE DATES. BE CAREFUL OF THE SLABBED COINS THE DEALERS ARE GOING TO                                    GET RID OF THEIR JUNK.  IF A COIN USUALLY SELLS FOR $100 & IT IS ON SALE FOR $40 OR $50 LOOK CLOSE AT THE COIN.

                             DONT BUY A COIN WITH A LOT OF BLACK SPOTS  OR DARK TONING


4/29/2020           REMEMBER I DONT NEED TO BUY COINS FROM THE OLIGARCHY  BECAUSE THERE WILL ALWAYS BE COINS TO BUY

                           BUT, I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER IN TIME SAY 20 YEARS FROM NOW I HOPE NOT SOONER  ALL YOUR SLAB COINS WILL 

                           HAVE TO BE RETURNED TO THE SLABBING COMPANIES  TO BE RE GRADED & THEY WILL CHARGE YOU FOR RE SLABBING                                 EVERY COIN  BY THEN COST SHOULD BE $40 FOR EACH COIN.


                           REMEMBER THEY WANT TO GO TO 100 GRADES.


                           HERE IS A  HISTORY LESSON IN NUMISMATICS 

                           IN 1985 THERE WAS  GOOD  VG  FINE  VF  EF  AU MS60  MS63  MS64  MS65   . THERE WERE NO MS 66 OR MS67 COINS  


                              LOOK AT 2020    AG3 & AG3IN CAC     GOOD4  & GOOD 4 IN CAC   THERE IS EVEN A GOOD 5    GOOD 6  & GOOD 6 IN CAC                                       VG8 &  VG 8 IN CAC    VG 10 & VG 10 IN CAC     FINE 12 & FINE 12 IN CAC     FINE 15 & FINE 15 IN CAC    VF 25 & VF25 IN CAC                                   VF 30 & VF 30 IN CAC    VF 35 & VF 35 IN CAC    EF 40 & EF40 IN CAC    EF45 & EF45 IN CAC    AU50 & AU50 IN CAC  AU53                                          & AU53 IN CAC  AU55  & AU55 IN CAC  AU58 & AU58 IN CAC  MS60 -  MS61  MS62  MS63 MS64  MS65  MS66 MS67  ALL ALSO                                    HAVE CAC

                          CAN ANY ONE TELL ME IF YOU CAN GRADE   A AU53        & WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN     AU50   &   AU53  .

                          NOW WE GO TO AU58  ARE YOU SERIOUS 4 DIFFERENT GRADES FOR AN AU COIN. IT DOSENT STOP HERE NOW WE SEE 

                          MS60  MS61  MS62  MS63  MS64  MS65 MS66    MS67  NOW THE NEW MS68 WHERE DID  MS68  COME FROM

                          THEY  SNUCK   IN 9 UNCIRCULATED GRADES .     CAN YOU SEE THE FUTURE    100 GRADES & YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR RE                                      SLABBING OR YOU  OR YOUR WIFE WONT BE ABLE TO SEND THEM TO AUCTION. & IF YOU DO THEY WILL RE SLAB THE COIN                              & CHARGE YOU..   MANY  COLLECTIONS REACH 100+ COINS.   NOW 100 COINS CHARGE $40 = $4,000  TOTAL SLABBING  

                          CHARGE BUT IT ISENT OVER YET  NOW YOU WILL BE CHARGED 20% ON  EACH COIN THEY SELL. THEN THERE ARE THE                                      TAXES ON YOUR SALES IF YOU MAKE A PROFIT OR NOT.

                          THERE ARE NOW THE COPPER COINS WITH THEIR BROWN    RED BROWN   &    RED

                          THEN THERE ARE PROOF COINS .PROOF  60     PROOF61   ARE YOU SERIOUS HOW DO YOU GRADE PROOF 60  -  61  62  WHO

                          CAN SHOW ME THE DIFFERENCE.           THEN PROOF  62 PROOF 63 PROOF 64 PROOF 65  PROOF 66 PROOF 67

                          MANY OF MY OLDER CUSTOMERS HAVE LEARNED A GREAT LESSON BY LOOKING AT THE PAST. THEY HAVE ENJOYED                                          COLLECTING COINS  BUT I HAVE SAID SINCE 1970 YOU BUY A $100 OR $1,000 COIN ALSO BUY THE SAME IN SILVER OR GOLD.

                          WHEN THE GREAT RECESSION CAME ALONG  IN THE 1970 TIME FRAME I NEVER BOUGHT A COIN FROM ONE OF MY                                              CUSTOMERS BUT I BOUGHT A LOT OF GOLD & SILVER BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE DUMPING COINS SO FAST THE PRICES                                        DROPPED EVERY DAY.. . I ALMOST FORGOT ALL THE PL PROOF LIKE  &   DMPL  DEEP MIRROR PROOF


4/28/2020           I JUST FINISHED BUYING  240 MS66   MORGAN DOLLARS    IN TRUE MS66  I WILL START PLACING THEM IN STOCK WHEN I                                     FINISH  WITH THE SAINTS GAUDINS I BOUGHT LAST WEEK .

                           THE SO CALLED WANT TO BE VEST POCKET COIN DEALERS CAN NOT GRADE A COIN & I DIDENT BUY 46 OTHER MORGAN                                   DOLLARS. THEY WERE MARGINAL PCGS MS65 SOME DULL SOME DARK SOME WITH GOUGES ON THE CHEEK.

                          


 4./27/ 2020        THERE ARE SO MANY COMPLAINTS AGAINST THE OLIGARCHY OF NUMISMATICS BUT IN A TIME LIKE THIS THEY DONT CARE

                           ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT THEMSELVES.  MANY PEOPLE ARE HAVING TO SELL THEIR COLLECTIONS JUST TO PAY THEIR                                   RENT OR HOUSE PAYMENT SO IF THEY LOWER THEIR PRICE THEY BUY CHEAPER & THROW IT IN THE SAFE UNTIL  TIMES                                   GET BETTER THEN THEY BRING IT OUT TO MAKE A BETTER PROFIT  THERE ARE NO GOVERNMENT CONTROLS  

4/27/ 2020          IN MARCH THE OLIGARCHY  DECREASED THE PRICE OF THE MISSOURI 2X2  IN AU50  ALL THE WAY TO MS65

                                                                                                                                       MISSOURI MS60 UP THROUGH MS67

                                                                                                                                       1939 D & S OREGON TRAIL  & SEVERAL OTHERS

                          I COUNT 90 + COINS THEY DECREASED IN PRICE KNOWING SOONER OR LATER THEY WOULD BUY FROM PEOPLE THAT HAVE                            TO SELL.. APRIL WAS JUST AS BAD & THEY DECREASED A LOT OF MORGAN DOLLARS.. SEVERAL THE DECREASE FROM EF

                          ALL THE WAY TO MS70.  DO NOT BELIEVE THIS IS BEING DONE BY THE AUCTIONS IT IS BEING DONE BY A HAND FULL OF                                      RICH COIN DEALERS THAT HAVE THE MONEY  BELONG TO THE  OLIGARCHY  ORGANIZATIONS. 

 


4/25/2020            I FINISHED CORRECTING INVENTORY ON BARBER HALF DOLLAR  THIS IS THE WORST DOWNTURN I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG                                  TIME.. I FIND 28  DATES FROM MS60 - MS66  WITH DECREASES IN PRICES. . THE COIN OLIGARCHY   DECREASED 95 GRADES

                            FROM MS60 - MS66 OF THE 28 DATES.                                          


4/24/2020            WE REPLACED MANY UN SLABBED  MERCURY DIMES


4/22/2020            I SAID 3 YEARS AGO THE DEVASTATION THE OLIGARCHY OF  THE BIG BUSINESS CONTROLLED BY A  HAND FULL OF                                              DEALERS WOULD BRING DOWN THE PRICES OF THE SILVER COMMEMORATIVES TO A LEVEL WHERE THEY WOULD BUY UP                                THE BEST  STASH THEM AWAY IN THEIR SAFE THEN START ADVERTISING  FOR YOU TO BUY. I SEE IT WAS MENTIONED BY

                            THE GREY SHEET.  MORGAN DOLLARS  ARE CONTINUALLY DECREASING IN MS64 THROUGH MS67 .BARBER DIMES GOOD 

                            AU ALL WENT DOWN AGAIN THIS  MONTH. 


4/20/2020            I STARTED REPLACING UN SLABBED  WALKING LIBERTY HALF DOLLARS


4/16/2020             I STARTED REPLACING UN SLABBED SILVER COMMEMORATIVE .

4/8/2020             ALL COINS IN RED I HAVE REPLACED ALL COINS IN BLUE & BLACK ARE IN STOCK. IF I DO NOT HAVE A DATE IT WILL BE                                         BLANK WITH A   $     OR THE DATE WILL NOT SHOW AT ALL..     NOW IT DOES NOT  MEAN I DONT REALLY HAVE IT  BUT I JUST 

                           HAVE IT SITTING WITH SEVERAL HUNDRED COINS  I HAVE READY  & NOT PLACED ON THE LIST YET.


4/7/2020             WE REPLACED MOST OF THE 1/2 CENTS.


4/5/2020             WE ARE STARTING TO REPLACE SEVERAL LARGE CENTS WE RECEIVED IN THE MAIL 4 WEEKS AGE. wE HAVE MANY MORE.


4/3/2020             I JUST FINISHED A 2 DAY E MAILING  WITH MANY COIN DEALERS AROUND THE COUNTRY  EVERY ONE IS TELLING EVERY                                     ONE TO WATCH THE MS65  MS66 &  MS67  PRICES . OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS THE OLIGARCHY HAVE BEEN STEADILY                             DECREASING PRICES. ITS AS IF THEY ARE TRYING TO DESTROY THE COIN BUSINESS FROM THE PRICES THEY CREATED.


4/2/2020            WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO REPLACE MANY SAINTS   GOLD COINS

 

4/1/2200            I NEED US PROOF SETS, LEXINGTON & CONCORD HALF DOLLARS TRUE EF, AU  UN SLABBED  & MS60  -  MS65 PCGS & NGC                                NO DARK OR    SPOTTED COINS .  TRUE EF I NEED 100 COINS. AU 20, SLABBED COINS 20 EACH MINIMUM.

                          WE HAVE RECEIVED OVER 20 PACKAGES OF COINS. ALSO MY ORDER OF GLOVES & FACE MASKS WERE DELIVERED

                          SEVERAL DAYS AGO.                           I AT TIMES GET VERY DISAPPOINTED  IN HUMANS.

​                          ONE OF OUR NEIGHBORS 7 HOUSES DOWN THE STREET FROM US WHEN I BROUGHT A BOX OF MASKS TO THE FAMILY THEY                            WERE SITTING IN THERE 3 CAR GARAGE & THEY HAD 500 LARGE CASES OF WATER FROM WALL MART. THEY WERE SELLING                             THE WATER FOR $10.00 A CASE. I SPOKE TO SEVERAL OF THE NEIGHBORS & 12 OF US GOT TOGETHER & FOR 3 DAYS WENT                             TO THE STORES  & BOUGHT OVER 500 CASES OF WATER & AT THE ENTRANCE OF OUR STREET WE SOLD THE WATER FOR 50                           CENTS OVER OUR COST  THINKING THIS COVERED OUR GAS FOR OUR PICK UP TRUCKS. WE DELIVERED MANY CASES OF                                 WATER TO OLDER NEIGHBORS WHO WERE AFRAID TO LEAVE THE HOUSE & 4 OF THE WIVES WENT SHOPPING FOR MANY                                 OF THE OLDER NEIGHBORS.       IT WAS A GOOD FEELING TO HELP PEOPLE.
