    I wasn't going to say anything....but that was me...I had a spare $5.5 mil sitting around and didn't know what to do with it. I saw this coin come up for auction and figured "why not??".

    I will totally get pictures posted when it arrives :rolleyes:

    When I was a kid, the 1804 Silver Dollar could be had for a mere $187,000.

    Always nice to hear from the sections of the economy that aren't cratering, I guess. :rolleyes:

    What we see is a bifurcated market with the really top of the line stuff bring huge prices and a lot of collector material sagging.

    Having said that, the prices in all of the Heritage Auctions seemed to be very strong. This was the first year I get shut out completely, and I hardly bid on American coins. My serious bids were on imperial Roman and hammered English pieces.

    Totally agree....the prices for top-end Morgans and Saints and 1907 High Reliefs are flat or up or at worst down 5% from a few years ago.

    The sandbox where I play is showing bigger losses.

    Look at the shenanigans going on with shorted stocks and folks sitting at home. I wonder if we see some of those numbers and $$$ bleed into coins and currency at some point.

    Actually, we've seen it already from the $500 and $1,000 bills purchased according to a currency publication.

    beautiful coin, struck in the 1830s for special presentation sets to foreign dignitaries. Like the 1804 dollars.
