Collecting during the Pandemic

Coins | Larry Smith

A pandemic can be scary for all of us, but it has some positives for online dealers. I have sean a big increase in sales on my ebay store (I had to remove link). I am quite busy listing inventory on Ebay, but I will try to post on my blog at least every other day! I collect all types of dimes (bust through-roosevelt), except barber dimes because they are ugly, Lincoln Cents (I only have key dates left), and US Type. I have Littleton albums for a lot of coins, and I will somtimes work on other sets. I occasionally purchase a morgan or peace dollar for my collection, too. I look forward to being more a part of this wonderful onlie community during this time of uncrtainty.Stay Healthy,Larry

1793 strawberry leaf large cent (the fifth)

Someone came into Brookfield Coin in Danbury, CT and brought in a pile of foreign junk bought by the pound. The owner looked through the pile and later found this coin. They are about to get it graded and if it turns out to be the suspected coin, it may raise a numismatic ruckcus. I highly recommend going to Brookfield Coin. The prices are fair, and if you are lucky, you may be able to hold one of the top 100 rarest coins.
