    l have an icon on the right side of my screen when on cointalk. Otherwise, here is a link. Mike and Matt are quite fun to listen to. Mike is a collector and Matt is a seller. They have different perspectives that make it a fun listen. I laugh when Matt tries to guess the states where the ATB's are located. I must say, I really don't know many of them either but it is funny to see him get almost all of them wrong.

    I will give a like to the first person that can put these famous folks with the less than famous ATB locations. The famous folks are Joe Biden, Edmund Muskie, Andrew Jackson, Ronald Reagan, Mitch McConnell, Barack Obama, and Gerald Ford. The ATB's are Great Smoky Mountains, Hawaii Volcanoes, Cumberland Gap, Pictured Rocks, Acadia, Yosemite, and Bombay Hook. If you can do it without help or Internet searches, you get extra credit.

    Only the Hawaii Volcanoes has risen in value; the others have lost a little value since my last market value update.

    With the release of the Apostle Island's puck, I thought it was a good time for an update on their values versus their mintages. Generally, the pucks have lost value in the past month. The Hawaii and Acadia pucks took big dives as well as Denali. The rarest puck, George Rogers Clark, has settled in value at about $270-$275. Ellis Island has lost value and settling near the value of many other pucks at about $157. It is not a good time to sell pucks but it may be a good buying opportunity.

    The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore puck went on sale in April 2017. The mint has already sold 15,125 in the first couple of weeks after release. It is interesting that the mint is releasing three pucks in a row from the upper Midwest, Pictured Rocks (Michigan), Apostle Island (Wisconsin), and Voyageur (Minnesota). I kind of like the first two of the year.

    From the mint website. Established in 1970, the park includes 21 islands in Lake Superior and a 12-mile-long strip of mainland shoreline. The park encompasses more than 69,000 acres, almost 40 percent of which are part of Lake Superior, and lies within the heart of the ancestral and modern homeland of the Ojibwe people. The park features pristine stretches of sand beaches and coves, spectacular sea caves, some of the highest quality stands of remnant old-growth upper forests in the Midwest, and a diverse population of birds, mammals, amphibians, and fish. It also has the largest collection of National Register lighthouses (nine) and lighthouse complexes (seven) in the national park system.
