If you spent $13,000 on coins in the 1970s... what would you have bought 1) then and 2) now
I especially liked Seated coins back then.
I would have bought the 1871 through 1874 cc dimes. (I did them in the 1980's and 90's, when I could afford them. The 74-cc was $1100 in 1989 in G-6, worth about 10x now)
Many of the scarce date Seated Dimes in BU have gone up by more than 10x, like 1843-O. My dad could have afforded a BU one in stacks that went for 3k in 1986. If its the same MS-62 it last went for 141K.
Also from what I know now, I would have bought some rare date Liberty gold coins.
In 1990 you could have bought an 1854-s $2.50 in Fine for 11K. The are about 10 known. It is worth 500K now.
I don't even think this is the absolute best investment, but its a pretty good one!!!
What would you have bought back then and what would you buy with your knowledge now with 13K.
If you were not born in the 1970's, what would you buy now with the forethought?
