Any of you OG’s wanna tell us about the 1980’s??
So as we now have sooooooo much free time I’m hoping perhaps some of our veteran numismatists who were around in this game wouldn’t mind sharing some tales of the 1980’s. I’m 42 so I was just a kid back then. But I’ve read and heard a few tales of crazy prices driven by speculation and months on end waits for slabs at the dawn of their being.
I’d love to hear some great elaborations of the things that went on. I’m truly fascinated by this time period of numismatics. Please tell us some secrets, some craziness, a grand comparison to the now. PLEASE give us your wisdom and tell us of your successes AND failings. This thread could be awesome!
