    My husband would answer that many collector's don't know as much about coins as you all do. He tells me a lot of stories. I was going to tell you to PM him for later but now he's tagged. @Insider

    Actually you can. A large majority of "collectors" are not very knowledgeable. That includes most of those who buy coins (possibly out of necessity) on TV at inflated prices. About a year ago some "phony" Morgan dollars appeared on the market looking nothing like the real thing. While the outside packaging was genuine, the coin and the plastic case it was in was not!

    Unfortunately, I don't display any of them, just want a complete set (all parts) in the SDB.

    Just checked the mint website and found that Roosevelt is sold out and Cumberland shows only 15 remaining in stock.

    With the release of the last puck of 2016 (Fort Moultrie), I thought that it was a good time to update the market value versus mintage numbers. I just got the Moultrie puck and I'm not a big fan of this one. I did really like the Teddy and Harper's Ferry pucks though. Since the last update, the Cumberland Gap and Teddy pucks have sold out. Teddy seemed to get a bump in value from the sellout but really nothing for the Cumberland Gap. Market value is a little difficult to gage for the pucks as some have very little turnover on ebay. Generally, the pucks have lost value in the past couple of months. Overall, they are still slightly above original sales price when taken in total (now 35 in all). The Hawaii and Acadia are helping with upping the average. Here is the dataset with a chart.

    Harper's Ferry is sold out at 18,894 (returns and adjustments pending). Fort Moultrie is the only collector puck remaining on sale.
     
  10. I missed out on getting Teddy Roosevelt. Settled on getting the Fort Moultrie. Wanted to get one of the pucks for the year. Maybe get a couple this year. I think I like 2 designs for the year.

    Finally got around to opening my box of Roosevelt P's and 9 of them were fine, but one has marks around George's ponytail. Looks like it happened during or right after being minted but before the vapor blasting. 2016RooseveltOBV-2.JPG 2016RooseveltOBV-1.JPG 2016RooseveltREV-1.JPG

    I've been away from home for a couple of week but my wife tells me the Effigy Mounds has arrived. My question is "Is it as ugly as it looks on the mint website"? In my opinion, it is the biggest piece of s*** that has ever come out of any mint.

    Wow. This seems like a lot of effort to try to make a few bucks on low mintage, high demand oversized quarters.

    Not my favorite, but still a great way to collect. Those of us that complete the collection will have 280oz of silver in 2021. Effigy is #36 of 56.

    I have all 36 pucks but this one is most certainly the most hideous. I'm surprised that we've created a national park to honor these idiotic looking things. The administration that added this one to the list must have been smoking crack.

    With the recent release of the most hideous Effigy Mounds, I thought it was a good time to update the market value versus the mintage of the pucks. Before that update, I was wondering if the Effigy Mounds will become the most valuable puck. Everyone feels sorry for the ugly duckling and it may push up demand. I doubt it, but lets see. And to my Iowan friends, do you have nothing better than these unseemly mounds? Couldn't you have a national park around crop circles or something? Could you at least spray paint graffiti on them? Returning to the 5-oz ATB market, it seems that the 2012 pucks are maintaining a nice margin but the other years are generally not appreciating in value and in some cases going down in value. The 2015 Blue Ridge continues to lose value and return to earth after its unexpected quick sellout in 2015. All of the 2010 pucks have slowly devalued from their initial selling price of $280. Here is the update:
