  1. Haven't been on in a while. I have been travelling out of state quite a bit looking for property to buy and build a house on. Got that taken care of, so here are a few coins I have picked up in the last week for my type set. 1798 Draped Bust style 2 Large Cent, 1867 Indian Cent, 1835 Capped Bust Quarter, 1861 Seated Liberty Quarter, 1912 Barber Quarter, 1871 Seated Liberty Dollar, and an 1874-S Trade Dollar.
  2. Took 2 weeks shipping time, but QB Griffins finally arrived.
  3. Thanks guys for the speedy replies. This forum is the best. Info passed on to my dealer friend.
  4. While I was at my LCS today, he showed me a couple 1987 gold Britannias that he had bought from a customer. They have some writing engraved on the obverse that I believe is chinese, but I'm not sure. My dealer had never seen anything like this before and asked if I was familiar with them, which I was not. I gave him my best guess that they were probably stamped after market for some type of celebration event? If anyone here can read these markings, or has some experience with similar items, I would appreciate the input, which I will pass on to my dealer friend. He did XRF the coins and they read correct gold content, 22k I believe he told me.
  5. Stopped by my go to LCS today to buy some of the Mayflower 400th Anniversary gold and silver coins. He knew I had missed out on them on the release day cuz the Mint changed the normal release time. He bought some from a customer yesterday and called me right away. Picked up the gold and silver 2 coin sets as well as the gold reverse proof coin. I also bought a few coins to fill some holes in my U.S. Type set.
  6. Thanks for pointing that out to me. It's an 1826 CAPPED Bust. My bad. Are you using an album? And if so, which one?
  7. I've recently decided to work on completing a U.S. Type Set. It's something I've thought of doing for a couple years now. S I bought an Intercept Shield U.S. Type Set album, and went to one of my favorite LCS' to see about filling some holes. Besides some modern clad stuff I needed, the interesting bits were an 1826 Capped Bust half dollar that I had to have as soon as I saw it. It has wonderful details for being a circulated sample. I also got an 1867 2 cent piece, 1943 Walking Liberty and 1955 Franklin half dollars, and an 1922 Peace Dollar. I know this is going to take me quite a while to complete. The plan is to buy MS grade for as many of the coins as possible, up to the point where they cost an arm and a leg to buy, and try going for VF/EF/AU for those.
  8. Received my Xmas draw today. 2019 1 oz oriental border Britannia and 1 oz Scottsdale bar. Thank you @adamthetaller.

  10. Received the latest Snowman in gold and silver. And my V75 Proof Gold Eagle came back from grading. I'm happy.
  11. Arrived yesterday and today. 2020-P burnished Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Nat Park 5 oz ATB, 2013 White Mountain Nat Park bullion 5 oz ATB, and a 2020 1 oz gold Chiwoo.
  12. Thanks Aa. Yeah I think one of each design/denomination from Barber onwards plus dollars comes out to ~3.75 oz. I'll add some extras to get over 4 oz. Probably visit my LCS tomorrow to cherry pick some nice attractive examples.
  13. I'm in. How about a set of 20th century 90% U.S. coinage. Dimes to dollars, Barber design onward. I'll make it at least 4 oz ASW.
  14. I was very lucky to be able to get both of these on the day of issue. U.S. Mint website was a nightmare. 2020 Proof V75 Gold and Silver Eagles.
