      Hello Chip,
      Thanks for the birthday wishes a while back. It has been a few weeks since I checked in and I just read your message. It was a great day, passing the time at Cedar Point riding all of the roller coasters.

      Top poster! Wow, very impressive and you seem like such a low profile type!:D That's a great looking coin Avatar, looking good! :thumb:
      Thanks ! Chip I have not cleaned anything yet.
      I thought I would get someone who really knows what there talking about before I ruin them.... with a solution.
      There is no one in my area of the country that knows much about real coin collecting.
      I was thinking to maybe somehow get to a coin show when there available.. Still checking that out ! I'm from Eastern Canada.

      Thanks for the helpful tip though....

      Hi Chip: How's things? I posted a question about silver eagles today. Check it out. See if you can help me with it. Thanks.

      Good advice Chip. Yeah, getting a handle on these is my project for this year and you have a point on what to keep, I am sure it will limit what I plan to keep.

      Thanks Chip! ;)
      One would think with all the birthday threads that people make that in the general discussion forum, that they would make one for me too. I guess not
      Thanks for the birthday wishes, means a lot!

      Thanks. I knew there was more silver in some coins after 1964, but I didn't know which coins.

      Sorry. There is a mistake in my message. I left out the word 'not'. I should have said 'I do 'not' possess the savvy.....

      ericd@sbcglobal.netThanks Chip. Seems like great advise. I have bought 3. The Travers 'Survival Manual' (still reading it) and both the R and B books. I do possess the savvy to really make an attempt to make any money from what I am purchasing so I am doing this because I enjoy owning and looking at the coins. I have purchased a few overpriced things (the Morgan dollars mostly, I had not yet bought Travers' book) so I decided to back off from the Morgans for the moment. I have searched the web for close to or better than Blue Book pricing for most of my sets and acquired most from 'reputable' online (Hallenbeck, East Texas) dealers when I can and some of the more rare (see costlier) ones like the 1999 and 2001 silver proof sets on ebay ( the dealer prices for those sets ranged from a low of about $250 to a high of $450. The auction deals were much better than what the dealers were offering so I took the chance. Thanks again for the greeting.
