    It’s a beautiful coin but I don’t like the commemorative coins. Glad you do. If you would like me to give you lesions on how to stop buying them I’d be glad to do so. :)

    Don’t know the price on that but if it was reasonable, sounds like it was, I’d have jumped on it too. Really nice looking for a modern

    Because they are awesome and always low mintage. :)
    Awesome pick up.

    I would. I used to keep up with them, but there are too many of them. I had that one in an attractive card, the way it was issued from the mint. I sold it because I lost interest in it. I much prefer these items in the original mint package and not third party graded.

    I have a type set of the "old commemoratives," both gold and silver from 1892 to 1954. I had all of the new ones, but then it got ridiculous.

    I totally understand. For some reason I am unable to pass up 1921 Peace dollars. I call them my "Catcher in the Rye" coin..... If we have a market shortage on 21 Peace dollars, I will be to blame.

    If you fall for a beautiful, exquisite design like this one, no fault.

    There are many older commem’s that have designs I don’t care for. This one is special…imo…Spark. Thanks for posting!

    Nice coin! I’m with you on this. Buy what you enjoy looking at today. If the next generation of coin collectors push the values of these higher graded coins up, then it’s a win, win!

    I sold most of my extras in my antique shop. Did pretty good on them too.

    Yes, they were, but I was neither alive nor a collector at that time. You might notice that I have only the type coins. The Oregon Trail Half Dollar had a beautiful design, but it was issued years beyond its time. I don’t need any of those coins then. I don’t want them now.

    10000 world wide. Does that mean there are only 10k of these minted in a pr70 ultra cameo grade or does it mean a total of 10k in other grades as well?

    total mintage of 10k is my understanding
