1974 Constitution Mint Silver

Hello All

Here is a nice round that I purchased off of eBay, it is from 1974.  The seller was very quick and is friendly a communicates well.  I think I have almost got on his nerves so I figured I would give him a mention. This is his ebay store Below are pictures of my new Ounce and here is the auction it came  from . I would recommend him as a Top and Favorite seller Anyway I wanted to give Bill a mention and show off the new shiny 1974 silver.  

1953 NGC PF68 Cameo Nickel

Here is my 1953 NGC PF68 Cameo it's getting ready go up on eBay.  I bought this coin raw at a pawn shop and had it graded a couple years ago, last I looked only 14 were graded higher so it is a valuable coin to some collectors.  If I was going to keep it I would probably get it sent back in and put in a new holder this one has some scratches but of course the coin is beautiful and the pictures don't do justice.  You might would even get a FS (Full Steps) attribute if you sent it in the back of Monticello is detailed.  I know there use to be 2 others same grade for sell asking over 500$ for the same grade and coin.  Anyway I will link my eBay once I get it up in case anyone is interested or hit me up I'm willing to sell it alot cheaper than some others since I do not have as much invested in it.  Like I said please ignore any scratches as they are the case.  

EDIT: Its for sale or trade, I will negotiate let me know if you have questions or you are interested, that ebay price is placed high since I'm taking offers....Thanks for looking :-) Click the link below to see more.

 I still couldn't get a real good picture like I wanted,  the battery is dead in the camera at the  moment so I'll proabably try to get a few more or hope I can find my scan of it

1901 New Orleans Morgan Silver Dollar

Here is an extra I found while going through the morgan collection, this is related to the other blog post here or here please let me know if the links are bad this is from the phone.  

My question is should I sell coins just for a dime to complete a collection?

The 1916 D Mercury Dime

I've been spending alot of time lately doing inventory and trying to save old coins in old whitman books and trying to complete any collections that are within my means and realistic.  I have a dansco full of franklins, rosies, but when I went to see what I lacked to complete at one complete set of mercury dimes the missing coin was a 1916D.
Wow I took a quick glance on ebay and realized this will not be easy especially if I want one where she looks decent.   Anyway if anyone has one laying around extra that you would let go of for a poor boy price hit me up so I can complete my set.
MillionI haven't looked on any of the sites for an idea of how many exist but only a quarter of  million were minted (264,000). Below is a picure of the lonely spot, that I am sure looks like many albums, that is a curious thought of how many out there look like this, ha, some ugly ones out there too asking premium.   Is it worth selling a bunch of morgans just to aquire this one dime?   Til next time take care.

Pawn Shop World Coin Finds

Hello, here are a few coins I picked up today at a local pawn shop.  They were all non US coins in a big bin for 25 cents and I only picked through the ones in flips and older years.  I do not know much about world coins so anyone please feel free to let me know if I got a treasure or what I paid for.  I am curious about the one from Bangladesh and the 2 Fillng from Hungary is neat.  The Bulgarian coin is a nice looking coin. 
If anyone knows anything or if they are worth sending off to NGC or PCGS let me know.  Cya til next time, Thanks for any help and info.
