Test your grading skills

PCGS Brings Back Coin Grading Contest At June Long Beach Expo

Collectors, dealers and young numismatists can test their coin grading skills by competing in the PCGS Coin Grading Contest at the June 2015 Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Show.

The collector and the dealer with the highest score will each receive a $1,000 check from Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com), and the young numismatist with the highest score will receive a PCGS-certified Morgan silver dollar.

The competition will be open to members of the PCGS Collectors Club, PCGS Authorized Dealers, PCGS Set Registry participants, PCGS CoinFacts subscribers and young collectors aged 16 or younger.

“The upcoming PCGS Grading Contest will be an outstanding opportunity for collectors, dealers and young numismatists to demonstrate their grading skills and receive a nice reward if they are able to match the opinion rendered by PCGS,” said Michael Sherman, PCGS Director of Collector Education.

Adults will have 20 minutes to grade 20 coins, young numismatists will have 20 minutes to grade 10 coins.

Participants must register in advance and reserve a time slot to take the test.  Registration and testing will be held at the PCGS Coin Grading Contest booth, #1127, at the Long Beach Expo and will begin during dealer set up on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 3, 2015, and continue throughout the show from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Thursday and Friday, June 4 and 5, and 10:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 6.

“A variety of coins have been carefully selected for the contest, and evaluating each one will definitely challenge even the most knowledgeable collector,” said PCGS Co-Founder David Hall.  “We’ve included a few plus grades, some designation dilemmas, and even a counterfeit coin to see who really knows their stuff.  We hope the contest will be fun as well as challenging, and we look forward to honoring the winners.”

The entry fee is $50 for dealers and adult collectors.  Entry is free for young numismatists 16 and younger.  Employees of PCGS and Collectors Universe are not eligible.  Additional information and rules about the contest will be posted on the PCGS website.

“Based on previous PCGS Grading Contests, we anticipate the available entry space will fill up quickly.  So, I encourage everyone thinking about entering to promptly register so they don’t miss out on this exciting way to test their grading skills,” said Don Willis, PCGS President.

To register or get additional information, call PCGS Customer Service at (800) 447-8848, Monday through Friday between 7:00 am to 5:00 pm PST.

The Long Beach Expo will be held at the Long Beach Convention Center, 100 S. Pine Ave., in Long Beach, California.  Additional information about the show is available at www.LongBeachExpo.com

Alexei Leonov is still alive at the age of 80.

The Newest Level of Rarity: The Appearance, or Eye Appeal, Rarity

April 17, 2015 in Antique Coins, Blogs, Coins, Collecting, Education, Gold, Gold Coins, Numismatica, Numismatics, Rare Coins

By: Doug Winter RareGoldCoins.com (Douglas Winter Numismatics)

If you’ve been around the coin market for a while, you know that there are many different types of rarity. In this blog, I’m going to discuss the types of rarity you might already be familiar with, and one which you might not: the eye appeal or “appearance” rarity.

The first—and most traditional—type of rarity is absolute or fundamental. An absolute rarity is a coin which is rare in any grade. An example of this would be an 1883-O eagle, of which only a few dozen or so are known from an original mintage of just 800 coins. Even a cleaned Full article at the source>

Simpson was 22 years-old when he landed at dawn on 25 April 1915 tasked as a stretcher-bearer. With the aid of a donkey brought in to carry water, he transported wounded men day and night from the fighting in Monash Valley to the beach on Anzac Cove.

Useful Information On Type Three Double Eagles In New Reference Book By Mike Fuljenz

Useful Information On Type Three Double Eagles In New Reference Book By Mike Fuljenz

Book Includes Proof “In God We Trust”
Motto Inspiration Pre-Dates U.S. Civil War

Type Three Double Eagles cover

Type Three Double Eagles 1877 – 1907 (Second Edition) By: Mike Fuljenz

An important new reference book about a popular United States gold coins series, Type Three Double Eagles 1877 – 1907 (Second Edition), provides beginning and advanced collectors a date-by-date analysis of every coin in the series, historical vignettes and more than 100 full-color photographs.  The book was written by Michael Fuljenz, President of Universal Coin & Bullion Ltd. in Beaumont, Texas, who has won more than 50 awards from the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG) for his consumer protection and education newsletters and earlier books and articles.

Fuljenz predicts that last year’s wide-spread publicity about the discovery of the Saddle Ridge Hoard “should increase collector and investor interest in this (Type Three Liberty Head Double Eagles) series for a long time.”  The vast majority of the 1,427 gold coins unearthed in the Northern California buried treasure hoard were Type Three Double Eagles.

The new book contains a chart of the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) grades assigned to the hoard coins, and also contains comparisons of PCGS and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation population reports on all Type Three $20 denomination gold coins.

One revealing chapter of the book is described by the author as “the definitive article on the national motto, In God We Trust.” It provides proof the inspiration for the motto actually goes back to the War of 1812, pre-dating the 1860s U.S. Civil War era that many believe was the backdrop for the motto.

Fuljenz provides useful collecting, investing, buying and selling tips as well as historical information and price history about this coin series.  He includes information about counterfeits and consumer protection, such as the 2014 Collectible Coin Protection Act.  Fuljenz assisted the Industry Council For Tangible Assets (ICTA) with lobbying in Washington, DC to get that law approved.

One of the 17 interesting chapters is devoted to “Peter,” an eagle that lived at the Philadelphia Mint in the mid 1800s and inspired coin designs as well as bedtime stories.

Type Three Double Eagles were struck at five mints: Carson City, Denver, New Orleans, Philadelphia and San Francisco.  Unlike Type One Double Eagles, Type Three have the motto, In God We Trust, and unlike Type Two coins the Type Three have the denomination spelled out as TWENTY DOLLARS rather than TWENTY D.

Other noteworthy features of the book include how President Theodore Roosevelt worked with acclaimed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens on the early 20th century “pet crime” of replacing the design of the Liberty Head Double Eagle and other U.S. coins; Type Three Double Eagles in the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution; celebrity coin collectors; and law enforcement tips on how to protect your coins and other valuables from theft.

Known as America’s Gold Expert®, Fuljenz has won dozens of prestigious national and regional awards and honors from the NLG, the Press Club of Southeast Texas and other organizations for his consumer education and protection work in rare coins and precious metals.

A respected community leader in his hometown of Beaumont, Texas, Mike also has served with distinction as a consultant to the Federal Trade Commission, United States Mint and Royal Canadian Mint, is on the ICTA Board of Directors and is a member of the Professional Numismatists Guild.

Published by Subterfuge Publishing, the suggested price for Type Three Double Eagles 1877 – 1907 is $39.95 including shipping.  Copies can be ordered online at www.UniversalCoin.com.

With My Recommendations – You Can Profit Two Ways

April 14, 2015 in Blogs, Bullion, Gold, Investing, Numismatica, Numismatics, Precious Metals, Silver

By: American Federal (American Federal Rare Coin and Bullion)

Euro and Gold 6 months

While experts will never agree exactly where the price of gold and silver is going, most do agree that gold at $1200 spot price is a pretty good deal.

Today’s prices are nearly 37% lower than the peak price of over $1900 an ounce back in 2011. Even though gold is substantially lower, there doesn’t seem to be any major change in long term fundamentals. The U.S. debt keeps growing, the politicians keep spending, and the dollar buys less year after year. The fact that the Fed is raising interest rates has helped push the dollar to recent highs.

1. Learn the market. Invest the time. Invest the effort and pick a lot of minds.

2. Find one of those relatively few dealers who have a proven program of following their client’s coins and profiting. I’m not sure anyone has really made much the last 14 years.
