Re: 1921 Canadian 5 cent

coingirl: star collectibles is patiently waiting for the right coin and gave the same advice.......not to buy problem coins. When I said that he was doing the right thing, clearly I was agreeing with him. And BTW, you said in your post that he was giving good advice.

Anyone considering purchasing a 1921 five cent piece knows they will have to shell out a pile of cash, so "deep pockets" is necessary in any grade. I have always advised people to buy the best coin they can afford, in G to MS65, whether they have deep pockets or as you put it "limited to pocket change".

This is a quote from your post several subjects ago:

"decided to do a separate post for this and make reference to the previous post by CSDmaniac a couple of weeks ago. in that post a few of you were dead against buying a VG 10 slightly corroded for around 5000. see how wrong you were with your advise? The lower end scarce coins sell fast and are not hanging around like the higher priced coins. this is a coin missing in most collections and IF i find one in VG 10 for under 6,500 , I will jump at it."

I asked you what you were waiting for to buy this coin. So did you buy it? You wanted a VG for under $6500 and the seller wanted $5000, so I thought you would "jump at it". My guess is you did not buy it because it was corroded. Please correct me if I am wrong. Why are problem coins selling for less than problem free coins? Because there are PROBLEMS with them. To use YOUR real estate analogy, why buy a broken down house in a crime ridden neighbourhood just to say you have a house. Save your money until something you like comes along. BTW, there are five 1921 five cent pieces at J&M in various grades for sale.

star collectibles: keep up the search...I am sure you will be happy when you find the right one. Don't let anyone talk you into buying a coin that you do not want, just so you can say you have one. You will regret it.
