The latest issue of The John Reich Journal has gone to print!  We expect the issues back sometime in the next couple weeks and they will be quickly mailed out to the membership.  I would hope you will receive them by Thanksgiving.  I will post in the JR Newsletter when they are in the mail.

Happy holidays to all.

Dear JR society,

 

Here is another Bust coin that that ebay seller sent to ICG, that I mentioned on the PCGS forum:  Misattributed?

 

Centsles who sells on ebay is Robert Johnson.  He won a PCGS grading competition, why those coins did not get sent to PCGS or NGC is somewhat surprising, he would have gotten more money even with lower grades.  He used to be based in St. Cloud while he was running "NNC" until ebay stopped permitting him to list numerical grades with those coins.

 

Regards, Tom

I saw that this coin ships from Orlando FL. I have bought from this seller before and I don’t know him personally but I got his name when I purchased a Norfed Silver coin.  I think he is actually from St Cloud which is southeast of Orlando Intl Airport (MCO).

I’m just thinking out loud. This might not be the place to post this and if not, I understand. I am hoping some other collectors might have more insight in this than me.

 

With all the stimulus money creation, it seems inevitable that gold and silver will go up in price.  I am curious about how the coin market will be affected. In particular, I am wondering if older series coins will rise faster than more modern series coins; if Bust series and Seated series will be more sought after than say Barbers or Morgans. Also, I am wondering how rarity will influence price. Will we have a lot of new collectors after bullion value or will we get new collectors who will want to collect variety coins that go after the rarities? It is a matter of understanding competition for the coins we love.

Dear JR society,

 

This Bust H10c proof went off on ebay tonight:  

1829 CAPPED BUST SILVER DIME ICG PR63 VALUED AT $11,000! ONLY 20-30 KNOWN! | eBay

 

I'm not sure what the coin would grade at PCGS or NGC, but Skip Fazzari at ICG and the others there are usually pretty accurate.
