    Does anyone have a PF70 or MS70 they can post?

    Well, this is a surprise, but a nice one!

    I don’t have any 70 grades (mostly stick with raw coins) but I do have some coins I can share. This is my birth year proof set, a gift from my mother a couple of years ago. These are in a Capitol plastic holder. They must have been in there for decades already, judging by the slight toning at the bottom edge of the dime, quarter, and half. A screw on the bottom of the holder must have loosened and let in a little air over the years.

    An added bonus is that it keeps getting better - the more I look at comparables, the higher I grade these.

    These have all been posted before, but what the heck! It’s my birthday!

    That’s OK. I was 69 yesterday, after all. I just got upgraded to a 70.

    Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes.

    My wife and I are both working from home (I’m in software development; she’s an artist) so the quarantine is not a burden in our house. I hope that it does not affect any of you, either. If it should, let’s all hope it’s a light touch and moves on quickly.

    Best wishes,
    Ron

    I got one present, sort of, that some of my peers can relate to.

    Social Security!

    I can no longer defer Social Security now that my 70th is here, even though I am still working.

    You hear a lot about the wrong things, but here’s my take. The Government has enforced my saving 6.2% of my pre-tax salary with an employer match of another 6.2%. Yep, that’s 12.4%, altogether. So that is 1/8 of everything I’ve earned over the last 52 years.

    And now I start getting it back!

    Watch out coin auctions! Here I come! :cigar: :greedy: :D



    Oh, wait, the bills just arrived...

    Who knows, maybe I do have some PF70’s after all? Some day I’ll check that out. If I wait another year I can never have a grade equal to my age again. I think I can make that adjustment pretty easily!

    Well, I'm late to the party, but Happy Birthday Ron!....remember, it means you completed 70, you're actually into 71 now! :D:D:D

    What a coincidence ("coin"cidence), I've been informed that I have a loose screw, and it's usually when I'm speaking & let a little (hot) air out...:eek::rolleyes:

    Beautiful specimens you have there, btw! :happy:;)
