The 25 Cent Challenge

Coins | user_46126

It all started one day when I was looking over my coin collection and an idea popped into head, how many coins could I get for just one quarter? I set out on a quest to find the nicest quarter in our house. I found a very nice 2009 quarter and listed it on ebay. In a few days it sold, I had made about $2.50 in profit! I knew there was a coin show coming up, and knew there would be some coins I could flip there, so I waited. At the coin I managed to get several good deals including a several AU-MS steel wheat cents, several silver quarter for $3, some where even ok barbers, and a 1837 large Cent! After the coin show I sold a few of coins, the biggest being the steel wheat cents for $25 profit! I always use the profit to buy more coins to flip, and have been building the value fairly quickly. I look forward to continuing this challenge, and might do an up date if everyone wants me to.

I did the same thing, sort of. There was a monthly coin auction where I would score some fabulous deals only to flip them for a tidy profit. Sadly, the auctions ceased without notice. So yes, nice job!

Great hunt and fine challenge that will keep you looking for more valuable items so you can be a great hunter . I suggest a name for you: "Coin$Challenger". I like that for you. What do you think?....

Ya, it seems like a lot of the lower end coins are overlooked a lot.
