This is the message I got back. :'( If this was already discussed, sorry!

    Calendars are like home phones, no one under the age of 45 has any use for them.

    However, I understand why they are still popular with the coin crowd.

    We have a member here who does a yearly calendar... I can't think of who off the top of my head. Now that I think about it, I need one.
    More importantly... let's see bigger photo's of that Redfield Morgan in your profile pic! That looks amazing.

    I always gave my calendar to my LCS owner. He will be disappointed not getting one this year....

    that is sad and not sure what percentage of the costs were covered by 'advertising'

    My home office has two land-line phones and a 2023 PCGS calendar on the wall (but not for long since 2023 is over).

    I'm 65, so I guess that explains it. But my phones never need recharging, never "drop" a call, and are relatively cheap.
    I can draw cartoons and messages on my paper calendar if I want (and I do want).

    I like a home phone, but finally let it go because it was a magnet for junk calls.

    Don't feel badly, my 85 year old mother still has a land line and a calendar on the fridge that she scribbles on.

    Ian gave submitters a gorgeous calendar this year. Thank you Ian.
    I doubt it will cause PCGS much of a problem as most people utilize cell phones for dates/appts and such, but the coin photos are great.

    Does anyone look at a calendar on the wall anymore to get the date ?

    I do all the time. It helps me when I’m signing documents at work to get the date right. I look at the walk calendar every time I sign something, which is usually 5 to 10 times a day

    Thanks. I started a new thread with the full size image, so as not to hijack my own thread!

    Maybe PCGS should look into producing a coin themed Dementia clock......might just be as popular and financially rewarding as the Registry Set idea.

    I saw Great Collections had a very nice calendar at the Winter FUN show. They had some nice iconic coins in there. No dimes though and certainly no Monster Toned Mercury Dimes. I like Ian’s strategy though! Gotta leave room for improvement for next year. ;)o:)

    I loved their calendars, they had amazing coin photos on them. I have saved each and every one just because they were worth looking at!

    It’s too bad, it was kind of a customer good will offering.

    Probably some collectors wish they had hoarded a few of these.

    I would assume that since these are "first strike" calendars they might take on a bit of a collectible status. They are of high quality and pleasing to the eye.

    Not worried about it - picked up a Great Collections calendar at the FUN show and, on Monday, a calendar from StacksBowers arrived in the mail. This old Boomer is really covered for 2024 now!

    Seriously ? 5 to 10 times at work. That’s like every hour my memory has gone to shit but I think I can remember the date longer than an hour.

    FYI.
    I took off my auto renew of my PCGS annual renewal. They have sent several emails (all the same) asking that i renew (probably won't). The email lists a complimentary 2024 calendar if I renew. I just received the last one yesterday.

    I would hate to ruin it for resellers on eBay, but if anyone would like one of our calendars, please email me your name/address (to [email protected]) and we will mail you one on Monday. We have about 100 left.

    Due to the positive response, we are going to do one each year now.

    Don't forget that the post office is closed on Monday since it's a federal holiday for MLK's birthday. Also, no mail delivery on Monday. Enjoy your long weekend. :)

    I have to review and approve tons of documents and every once in a while I put the wrong date when I’m in a hurry.. It’s a pain because then I have to cross out the wrong date and write in the correct date and then I have to initial it and write in the date again for regulatory reasons. I hate doing that so I look at the calendar each time so I don’t have to make that correction.
