Mercy! Uncle Coin Guys, Mercy!

CoinscratchCoinscratch Posts: 7,933 ✭✭✭✭✭

I promise to only talk coins going forward...ok mostly :) but definitely NOT that ugly P word.
I was just sitting around tonight thinking it's kinda cool being a lurker (UNLESS YOU WANNA SAY SOMETHING!) and I sure do miss those guys and I sure learned a lot from them...and then I realized my crazy dog was back! Oh Carp (that's a fish but not one you wanna eat :) Apparently the mods do have a heart so...

I will show the same. Just enter by saying anything that's on your mind (within the rules) and you will be entered into my one and only TOP POP GIVEAWAY!!! Yes, pulled from a mint set and graded by our dearly beloved Uncle Host :) She is a MS65+ PL.

Best of luck - Chris

    Welcome back Mr. Coinscratch!

    I’ve been getting some laughs on here courtesy of the very generous sentiments and business interests expressed secondhand coming from a visionary sage referred to as Davie.

    During your and the @OAKSTAR detention periods, it was not nearly as lively here.
    Welcome back!

    In the unlikely event I should be selected for the giveaway, please donate it to an enthusiastic young collector.

    Thanks

    Happy, humble, honored and proud recipient of the “You Suck” award 10/22/2014

    I asked the trustee to put in a good word for you. I’m happy that it worked. The bars are easy to escape; the circle and slash are nearly impossible to get out of. Good job.

    Yes, I saw he was reinstated the day I was banned so I’m pretty stoked to be back. There are a lot of reasons and people here that I’m happy to be back not to mention another long-winded conversation between cladking and WCC who could miss that?! Those are some of my favorites 😎

    Thank you Jim, and you know that’s not an easy one to find. I mean there are tons of PL coins from 1998 but actually getting one of them to pass through PCGS is the real trick.

    Well, whoever wins it won’t have long to enjoy the top pop because I will be looking for a 66 or better 😀

    But honestly finding one with frosty devices like this one possesses will be a trick.

    See that @Coinscratch, without your spiritual guidance I done got myself in a bit of trouble and the Judge threw me in the cooler. B)
    Glad you made it back in one piece before the dog guards caught up with you - I'll look you up when they let me see the light of the day again and we'll clink some 1 ounce glasses and spin a few tunes :D

    @steven59 as your spiritual advisor I would advise you to stay away from the sports forum And/or talking about dual points simultaneously.

    I could just leave it in the NGC box under the bridge.

    Very funny. I'm a minor, and my parents probably wouldn't like a random package addressed to me to arrive in the mail. Soooooo, wait till I'm older! :D Also, I wouldn't be able to say that I don't have any slabs in my collection if I won. :D

    I cannot answer that honestly without breaking another rule so :)

    These PL coins (like proofs) show every little touch so I think if one could be had in a 67 or 8 then you would really have something.
