There have been 2 venues/subjects that the Mint has put out that I really like. I have been a science fiction fan since I was in the 6th grade. I read Asmov's Foundation series when I was 13 and Clarke a little later, so when the Mint came out with their Apollo 11 series of coins, I bought one of everything. The Apollo 11 prints are on the wall in my office next to Spock/Leonard Nimoy. I loved the Mayflower series as well. One of my "dog patch" kin (distant relative) was the second governor of Jamestown. I also started reading Louis L'Amour books about the Sacketts. It starts out in the 17th century and continues on.
I want to thank all of the collectors for their input about coins. I didn't start until my mother passed in 2009. My father left his collection to me and my brother, but my mother would not let us have it until she passed. We tried to make an equitable division of his coin collection. My brother took his collection and put it in a box and left it there. I offered to pay him, but he doesn't need the money.
Anyway, thanks to my father, I started a new hobby of coin collecting at the ripe old age of 62, and thanks to all of you, I have learned a great deal.
That''s literally what their job is for collector coins.
The year off will probably actually help the popularity but they should just do a proof, then an RP and call it day. Doing them every year they'd get stale very quickly
I sent them in for certification and ended up with 20 MS-70, 13 MS-69, and one MS-68. I will probably sell a few next year and I think the fact that there are no 2022’s will help the resale price.
Ummmm...how did you manage to buy 34 coins?
You’d just buy them from other people. If they were smart they’d up charge but I guess if you have enough friends they’d do it for cost
The P,S,D minted coins I can see...they were minted at those mints. The privy O & CC were struck at either P,S or D. They advertise it as a "Carson City" coin...its just not a Carson City coin. Period.
It's too bad the Nevada State Museum and the Mint couldn't get together on this issue. Press #1 still operates and from time to time they will strike medals for fund raising...they could have struck the genuine CC dollar on the same press which struck the originals.
**Hint** Does this reverse image really go with this coin?
Think I photo shopped this? Check the coin yourself. 5986745-034
Every single reverse image of my 34 coins that I have checked is wrong.
I have written to NGC support. So far no response.
One or two 'screw ups' I could maybe see, but 34?
Are you sure they're not all 'mules'?
