LMAO. But not as old either.

My sincerest hopes that you someday will be.
It wasn't an auction. There was a fixed price and a limit for individual purchase.
Are you referring to a time a decade ago when I was actively buying Mint bags of business strikes that were produced in the tens & hundreds of millions, examining them tediously for the high grades to submit for grading and selling certified MS68's to Registry owners?
You think that is the same? No wonder I still have you on ignore, you jerk!
Exactly. There's a long enough price history for past RPs and the like to have an educated guess on what they will go for. This one is by far the lowest mintage of any of them and pretty much all of them besides the 2013 mint to demand set are all selling for over issue price with some of them well over
Of course. Is that the best yeah got?
Come on, show the pics again. There might be some new members who have not seen them yet.
You didn't make any new friends with your post yesterday. Gloating over the fact that you were able to get 15 of these coins that the US Mint's website stated were limited to one per household.
Unfortunately there is nothing to stop it and people with more money than brains will pay your exorbitant prices.
Sure it's a free country and you can certainly take advantage of the system. Is it the right thing to do? Well that is something only the individual can answer.
I will say that I have purchased something from you in the past and I very much enjoyed our interaction. However with this now come to light, I wouldn't buy from you in the future. I'm sure that our transaction was just a tiny drop in the bucket for you but that's the most I can do as a consumer. It is up to each individual to decide for themselves if they are willing to deal with someone who has unethical practices.
I wonder if they will release any today and if there will be any more shenanigans.
I would feel bad to brag about buying 15. That makes 14 collectors that have to go to the open market and pay stupid money. Not something I would do to fellow collectors.
Searching bags for high grade coins has nothing to do with this thread. That takes skill and a lot of labor. Any profit was earned and no collectors got screwed.
I'll let you know, but I'm leaving around noon. Packing up and heading home.
My son and I will be getting there around 10 when the show opens. We won't be dealing with the crazyness around the mint booth lol.
My son will be there running my booth (1042) while I'm out buying. Stop by around 11 and you'll probably see me there, too!
Just curious...what has happened to pricing on that since ?
I hope you and others create a Whitman Baltimore thread and report back on the show....# of dealers...how was their business....show attendance....announcements...etc.
