Re: snipers

Hi Terry! My only problem, is that I waited 75 years to get active again as a collector, and add to that, the item I went after had to be the "Vickys"! To make matters worse, i had to pick the 1859'-N9. Plenty of them minted many millions, no problem. Then i see the asking prices daily on ebay BIN's, and the prices are out of sight. Gotta go another way... So i look foe lots, anf keep my fingers crossed, hoping for a few '59'. some showed up, and i am started.. someone else hears of my delimma,,and sends a few mixed dates, now I'm really hooked! Still a few dates missing to fill the hokles in that folder. in come a few more, all '59's this time, and they get sorted by another method, to see if i can figure out the die marriage which minted that coin. No problem, "there are all kinds of books"! Wrong!

Thet cover everything BUT the 1859-N9's! i don't have as amnty as I wanted to obtain for my "research", but am slowly getting enough to work with. Look at Rob, He used 150 examples. I have that many, now, but more would be a bit easier to go thru, so I saw the lot of 272 mixed dates, and 1859-1901, and bid. Came in sucking hind tit. Oh well I have a few more, (50), coming in next week, and I'll have to be satisfied with them. BTW, the last bunch that came in, had a nice "lighting bolt, on the "R" of Regina. half way back thru Gratia, and forward to the "G". That makes five ov them, but only two really outstanding ones. maybe tomorrow..... Terry, If I had your experience, I would probably not be so dumb, but i don't, so....:-_)
