New Trends Comment

Vol 49 Issue 1: Re 1953 PL coins: "...all NSF issues are specimens..." What is missing is the correlary: All 1953 SF are proof-like.

This issue has been widely popularized as gospel over the past 5-10 years. As has the comments that all such coins in holders (be they ICCS or PCGS) need to be returned to be put into their "proper" holders.

While such actions would be neat and tidy, in my opinion cannot be farther from the truth. New coins of 1953 are all over the place. I believe, and have coins to back this up, that there are NSF proof likes, as well as SF specimen coins.

I know this is contrary to current "expert" opinion, but that does not make it so. To continue to popularize the opposite is of no benefit to the collecting community, other than to add years of confusion that will surround the issue. Perhaps in 2050, collectors of that era will rediscover the truth. I hope so.
