    I went to Carson City last week to visit a family member and see the Carson City Mint. There is a cool coin dealer shop right across the street (good location) and it had so much amazing stuff.

    If you’re looking for CCs I visited them last week and they had me drooling with all the CC coins. I’ve never seen so many gold CC coins in one spot.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that's NOT the place to buy CC coins. Very cool but there's a term called "tourist trap" that may apply here. It would be cool to visit, stop there and get one though, if you were in the market. I didn't say the trap wouldn't work on people...

    Actually the prices there are very fair. Usually they’re somewhere between greysheet & blue book values. Sometimes they get up into red book pricing on key dates.

    The guy who owns it though definitely seems like an honest guy who knows what he’s doing but I’m sure if you really look around you can find better prices.

    I'd love to visit the place some day and make a few purchases. Looks like great inventory.

    Northern Nevada Coin, I assume. They're a reputable dealer that does the national show circuit. Their signature coin is an 1884-CC Morgan that is split completely in half. They are not a tourist trap. A tourist trap, perhaps one in another corner of Nevada, would have greatly overpriced, cleaned common dates.

    That's an impressive display of CCs. I wouldn't mind spending a few minutes in that shop. Thanks for sharing. How was the actual CC Mint. Are you able to tour it inside?

    Sadly due to COVID we weren’t able to go inside. I believe you need an appointment. I just looked from the outside and then explored the coin shops nearby.

    I should also mention that the photo I took was just one display case. They had at least a dozen of them! They just didn’t want me taking a bunch of photos due to security reasons so I just took the one.

    I must agree, I've done two transactions now with them via email and phone with a couple (non CC) Morgan Dollars and it was a fantastic purchase each time, their photos and descriptions are spot on and their customer service is awesome.

    I believe that was also used on an episode of THE BIG VALLEY from 1965 that featured William Shatner !:D

    If he's within 5% or so of recent auction prices that's acceptable to me.

    You don't want to pay an extra 25-35% like you see on some of these Coinfomercials. :mad:

    I was hoping you were talking about a mated pair of split planchets, each one having one side of the coin completely intact. I've only ever seen one of these, ever, and it was not a Morgan dollar. This one is almost as cool. :)

    Northern Nevada Coin is indeed a reputable dealer. I go to northern Nevada, usually Reno, on business occasionally and try to stop in. In addition to their shop in Carson City, they have a nice shop in Reno. Good selection and prices and very helpful and knowledgeable people. They also attend major shows. Once these get going again and if you can make it to one, stop by their table to look and chat.

    Yes, NNC is a good dealer. I've purchased and traded with them and I got fair deals and good service.
