  1. I had a really good day at the local coin shop. The three Barber halves are (in date order, not necessarily the order they are in the picture) 1906-O, 1908-D, and 1915-S.
  2. To be honest, if someone presented this to me (and if I had the money to buy a kilo of platinum), I would not be a buyer unless it was assayed by a reputable source as pure platinum.
  3. Back from a trip to the coin shop. I think I did fairly well today. Top row: Maria Theresa thaler restrike, 1938 UK Shilling, 1916 Tunisia 2 Francs, 1944 S US for the Philippines 50 centavos (I placed into a flip as it appears to have the 1907-1921 obverse. Sadly, it also appears to have been amateurishly cleaned) Bottom row is all 0.800 fine Canadian: 1964 dime, 1957 quarter, 1940 quarter, 1951 quarter, 1943 quarter, and 1958 quarter. A couple of the quarters have some really nice rainbow toning.
  4. I'm from the USA. The Eisenhower dollar is not silver. Some (but not all) of the 1971-1976 Eisenhower dollars from the San Francisco mint (mintmark S near the back of the neck) were .400 fine silver. Philadelphia (no mintmark) and Denver (Mintmark D), along with all 1977-1978 issues were copper-nickel clad.
  5. I have not had any problems with Ebay, but I use it very sparingly. I generally use it only for numismatics. You can look at pictures of coins and assess reasonably well whether they appear the way they should. With rounds and bars, it is harder to determine authenticity visually. I would be unlikely to purchase anything if I couldn't see clear photos of both the obverse and reverse. Also, I only use Paypal for Ebay purchases. If the order does not show up, or is not as described (eg. counterfeit) you can file a dispute, and if the seller doesn't act to make things right, it can be escalated t
  6. Peace dollar. Minted from 1921 to 1935. Mint mark (if any) will be on the reverse below the N in the word "One." Great find. (To date, I do not have an example of this coin in my collection. It is on my radar to change that soon) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peace_dollar
  7. Serious answer: 529 Daft answer: "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?" "I think so, Brain, but if Eddie Munster married Wednesday Addams, what would the children look like?"
  8. I won the Royal Fortune in a Youtube video contest (Stacking Kat), and found the George V Canadian penny and the wheat in circulation today. It's been a good day.
  9. Great coin! I love the Centenário, and if my budget ever allowed it, I would be torn between that and the St. Gaudens double eagle. The Centenário would probably win though for being the larger coin.
  10. Well, technically I received these yesterday, but here they are.
  11. I do not have any one gram bars, though I do have a Canadian Maplegram coin. I probably would not do it again in gold. Better to save up for something a bit more substantial. I have considered one gram of palladium, to say I have it in my stack, and because there seems to be no middle ground between one gram and one ounce in that metal. The price would have to be favorable though.
  12. My first (and so far only) foray into platinum was the 1/25 oz platinum Philharmonic. My intention was to get a 1/10 oz Britannia, but given my inability to find one in stock from a reputable source, I went with what was available. In hindsight, I probably would have benefited from waiting for the Britannia, as the price to premium ratio is a bit more favorable, and I wouldn't need a magnifying glass to admire the coin
  13. Hello all, I just joined after seeing the forum mentioned in a video by SpegTacular. I've been a long time collector of Constitutional silver from circulation and local sources, but only started buying bullion grade silver recently. I'm looking forward to improving my knowledge through the resources here, and sharing when I can
