What did I miss?

We just got back from 3 weeks in Florida. I stayed off the forum the entire time. I went to one coin shop but it was 90% jewelry with a small corner for coins. They had mostly just stuff. The best thing they had was a 1902 Blue Seal National Bank note from Panama City, Florida that was decent. It had a sticker of $1750 on it.

How many rare error coins were found in parking lots while I was gone? Does Ricko still like heavily toned coins? :)

    Hmmm what happened in the past three weeks, lots of CAC bashing. Lots of bashing anything not PCGS. Accusations over is MS70 use AT or not. Lots of behind kissing of anything that is PCGS. So in summary you have missed nothing, in fact you could leave this place for years and really not miss anything of value anymore. :#

    If you really believe that, why are you still here?

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    Panama City Florida notes skyrocketed last week. Bringing at least $5K each now.

    It pays to keep in touch. 😉

    Q: When does a collector become a numismatist?

    A: The year they spend more on their library than their coin collection.

    A numismatist is judged more on the content of their library than the content of their cabinet.

    Actually some pretty good show reports.

    Magnetic war nickels, dumpster diving for silver bars, rare errors found on parking lots, etc.

    Your life will never be the same. The forum is approaching Sleepy Hollow territory.

    *The agony of losing an insured $20 coin in the mail.
    *We need coin show reports for past shows, shows this weekend, and shows next month.
    *The absolute fiasco of a coin being graded 04 that was actually 3.5.
    *A newbie proving to the world that he located an SMS 64 Kennedy. Through photos.
    *The discovery of a 22 matte proof Peace.
    *Gold gold gold. And more Gold.
    *People turning BST into a discussion forum. Of course keeping coins on the first page BST that they aren't buying.

    • Turn around times aren't fast anymore.

    Oh the humanity.

    Have a nice day
