    I have a 1928

    None of the above.

    When in doubt, don't.

    None of the above.

    The bitterness of "poor quality" is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    @BillJones I was informed via the poll counter that I could not post more than 10 options 🙄

    I'm sure I have some 24's and probably a few 1908 motto and no motto.

    @FredWeinberg of those which would you consider the rarest? The 1933 is probably the ultimate conditional rarity (especially after the loss in the Langbord case). Collecting these today is quite the challenge. How has the numismatic arena changed in your time as a dealer to present?

  • matt_dacmatt_dac Posts: 163 ✭✭✭

    None of the above, but I previously owned a 1924 and a 1908 No Motto. I now own a 1927.

  • logger7logger7 Posts: 4,162 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I've had the common dates and the somewhat better ones like 1907 "arabic numerals" and HR. The super rare dates have less appeal to me than the $20 Libs. that are much tougher in pop. figures.

  • DIMEMANDIMEMAN Posts: 18,524 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I have never had one. There was not an option for this in your poll.

    After the '33, the 27-D is the rarest date St. G.

    To answer your other question, it would take a
    lot of time and verbiage - so many different
    changes in numismatics - suffice to say, PCGS
    was the biggest lasting change to the coin industry/hobby,
    in my opinion, from the 'raw' days to now.

    (the Modern Issue market, and all it encompasses,
    would be a good candidate for the 2nd biggest change)

    @FredWeinberg thank you for your input. A gentleman such as yourself could write a book on those changes. I’d be one wide eyed individual if I ran across a raw collection of those rare dates as I’d imagine most are slabbed at this point. I was listening to an interview with John Albanese on coinweek about the changes he’s seen, makes for an interesting listen.

    None of the above. Why the limited options?

    1920 1920-S

    @LJenkins11 I figured I’d list some of the rarer Saints that I could think of. Would have added a none of the above but couldn’t add any more options.

    Two 1920 coins.
    A 64+ and another one I can't bring myself to part with because it's a 64 that our host thinks is a 63. :o
    (They should invite me to teach a class on the difference)

    Otherwise, date sets only require 5 expensive coins.
    1921, 1929, 1930-S, 1931-or-1931-D & 1932
    I'm zero for five so far :'(

    You can collect 18 out of 23 without selling your kidneys.

    I picked up a raw 33 at a lawn sale recently for $50. Do you think I should get it graded? It came with a pretty modest display board. :D

    $50? :o

    What’s on the edge? How much does it weigh? Is it magnetic? What’s on the reverse?

    Sorry but I don’t think that’s real. You might have overpaid for a gold colored slug.

    IMO

    Cropped the pic.

    Hmm... do not think they would use those peg/prongs/nails on the real coin. Still a fake or a facsimile for display. The following are pics from the National Museum of American History.

    That's a nice one.
    1920 saints are their own deal.
    They don't seem to be graded like any other coin.
    In the old days with the coin facts you could run through them all and it would make more sense.

    1920 1920-S

    @ReadyFireAim I suppose a 1920 is the closest we mere mortals will come to a semi key date Saint. I hear 24 D/S-27-D/S are hard to come by 😉

    They have two 33’s on display and I took pictures of both. I’ll post the other one when I get to that computer.

    Put me down as another nada here :/

    This is the second one they have on display. I was taking pictures with my phone through glass of course:

    The flash blocks some of the detail, but several identifying marks match. I agree it's an awful way to display these.

  • rickoricko Posts: 65,075 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I have a few old Saints... do not recall the dates.... slabbed too.... I will have to check later. Likely not the rare dates though... have had them for at least 20 years....Cheers, RickO

    I too have a 1920 and she’s quite pretty in my opinion. I too am 0/0 for the fab 5 Saints and probably will be for a bit till >retirement. I can dream though!

    So what do you think about starting a saint date set?
    You already have a great example of one of the 2 hardest to find coins in the 18 that are doable.
    (I've seen 64+ 1920 that aren't as nice looking as your 64)

    The other hard one is 1912.
    Then the 1913-D is easier and it opens up considerably after those 3

    @ReadyFireAim that’s what I’m planning on doing in the near future, just need the assistance of a gold master like Doug Winter to help locate the nice ones as my LCS isn’t of much help. 1915-1916 are more common and I found a few of the fab 5 on collectors corner for sale but they’re a mortgage. Here’s my latest Saint pickup. https://forums.collectors.com/discussion/1018120/newest-purchase#latest

    I guess it really doesn’t qualify when your grandparents (married in 1932) received bright shiny 1932 $20 dollar gold for a wedding gift, and then promptly deposited it into their bank account.
    So, unfortunately, I never owned one.

    @7over8 eh technically by proxy but that’s a stretch 😉. That’s quite an interesting story to tell.

    Looks like someone stepped on it & did a pirouette.
    Glad I'll never have to hold myself back on that one.
