Looking For Comments On Grade And Surface

This is an already graded coin. Unfortunately these are the best pictures I have. I know its hard form pictures but I'm looking for some input. To me it looks relatively clean surface. I cant really tell about the luster, but I dont see many if any surface scratches or bag marks. Eye appeal is not b...

Re: Banknote Scanning & Optimization and what has worked for me.

There are two work arounds for this. 1 - Use ViewScan scanner software and drivers. You may have to remove you're old sca...

Re: 2 $20 radar banknotes

Nice banknotes! this may be the wrong forum but. I think it might add a little bit of value considering the numbers are close and its unlikely to have two similar radars this close to each other. I might add a 20% premium when sold in a pair. As of right now I do think that allot of radar notes are ...

Personally I like collecting a bit of everything, especially raw ungraded bills and coins. Professional grading takes away from the collecting aspect and the natural interpretation the hobby needs, in my opinion anyways.

Re: What you collect and why

Just out of curiosty, who here is a type collector or prefix collector? Does anybody have a resource where we can see the total number of prefix's for the BOC from 1935 to present day? It must be an enormous amount of prefix's.

Sounds a little like myself. I was wondering when the next show will be with everything going on these days. I actually asked my wife today if she thought Torex would be running, she laughed. :)

I've collected many things over the years. I really enjoy the artwork on banknotes. For me its the beauty and the fine details that I enjoy most!
