    If I had that much money I'd like to think I'd apply it toward real coins, not Mint-staff shenanigans.

    Congrats to him on adding another historic coin

    You can't bid up a private sale

    You and I are on exactly the same page about the 1913 Liberty Nickel. If I had one, I would sell it and buy many more real coins that are much more interesting.

    I was wondering why Mr. Morelan had started a string of posts elsewhere about how the "important collections" must have the 1913 nickel and an 1804 dollar in them. Now I know.

    I think Mr. Morelan has owned one of these coins before. I think he owned and sold the Jerry Bus coin years ago.

    Am guessing he is trying to make a statement and aquiring it once again
    Someone made a nice profit off of him
    Helpfully it ll just stay out of sight for it a bit . but would be a shame because had the pleasure seeing this in person once ( was at a convention here w armed guard along with many rare dates )

    The article actually says this is the third time he's owned this exact specimen.

    He generally allows his coins to be displayed at shows, when those come back I would guess this will probably make an appearance in a display at some major show from time to time

    My attitude is summed up by the rabbi’s blessing from the musical, “Fiddler on the Roof.”

    I agree with that. For the money I could have a dozen really cool coins

    For me the greatest US rarity in private hand is hands down THE 1822 Half Eagle no mid night minting, no government mistakes(the proof set 1804 dollars) , no sneaking out of the the mint (looking at you 1933 double eagle ) or full on mysteries (1870-S Three Dollar gold) . Famous for who owned it(Pogue and Eliasberg) and who did (Bass) .
