Introduction - Monthly Notes
New Year ! Over 100 new coins have been added this month, from some auctions,
from several customers sending coins, and the “Weyers Cave” VA show. PCGS coins
include a scarce variety of 1857 FE VF20, die clashed with an 1857 half, a well
struck and choice 1877 Indian, F12 with sharp lettering and rims, a 1939 doubled
Monticello AU55, a choice 1805 quarter in VG10, a choice 1928 peace dollar VF35,
and two popular gold pieces: 1849 dollar and 1915 2½ both in AU58.
dropped for 1877 Indians during the recession due to investor selling and due
to more liberal grading. But 1877s are scarce, prices and grading have
strengthened this year, and the coin I obtained has a full liberty.
of other keys like 1909S vdb, 1926s Buffalo, 1916D dime, 1932s quarter also
dropped due to investor selling, and are now strengthening. I
added a choice 1932s quarter, ANACS F12 with sharp rims, and an 1860s half,
ANACS EF40, and several NGC coins.
Traditional collector coins, particularly 1793-1828 have continued to
strongly increase in price, demand and liquidity. I added a 1796 draped bust
cent with full rims and no corrosion. For an S112 it grades G4, but It was priced
and graded NGC-AG3, presumably due to heavy wear on “One Cent”. This is typical
of S112 which has a low relief reverse. Only 300 or so 1796 draped bust cents
exist and all varieties are R3 or higher.
bottom line: Scarce collector coins up to 1933 are in great demand at this time,
and supply is minimal. Many prices are increasing and owners are not giving up
“the good stuff”. Other strong groups are Indian cents and nickels in EF or so,
mint state Lincolns, Standing quarters with bold dates and Barber coins, in
VG-F and particularly VF-EF….Good luck finding these!
sales were up this year, thanks to you, my customers! Other experts in the
hobby also saw sales of mid-grade collector coins increase. I’ve been noting
that economic stability is good for confidence. With confidence in employment
and stable expenses, folks can get back to their hobbies. 2016 will see
continued stability. The next trend in commodities, metals, prices, will be higher
as the Dollar weakens. I just don’t know when this trend will start.
