Hey Jim:

You need to be more careful where you hide that stuff.

Food for thought

Regarding that gold coin hoard found in California. Reports say it consisted of 1400 $20 double eagles, 50 $10 coins and 4 $5 coins.



Face value of the coins is $28,520 $1 bought .0484 oz. of gold when these coins were minted.

Note: The '$10 million' value reported in the news is numismatic - many of the coins found are rarely seen in very good condition


GOLD melt value for those 1379 oz. is over $1.8 MILLION at today's prices $1 today buys only .0007517 oz of gold

so... $1 today buys 1/64th of what it did when that hoard was buried

--------------------------------------------------------------------

My opinion is........

The couple who claim to have found the hoard are deceiving us.

Why did they lawyer-up rather than keep quiet? Guilt probably. Emotional duress. They couldn't endure their challenge. They were too weak.

Cash, gold, silver or ammo, the only person who would know about it would be the collector I'm selling a piece to, and no one would ever know the total!
Sell one or two big dollar coins local... buy gold from miners, Rinse, Repeat!

Re: California couple finds $10 million in rare coins

I guess I watch too many gold shows. :confused:

A while back, there was a documentary about the US Mint and it concluded with a segment on numismatics and certification (grading) of coins. There are meetings of the half-dozen top coin graders that occur and they pass coins around the table and form a consensus on the grade. The coin is sealed in a plastic case with the grade. Coins are submitted by collectors for certification for the purpose of asserting "value" of the coin based on the certification.

There is a "known" number of Lady Liberties in circulation among collectors. They have been certified.

There is a known number of counterfeit Lady Liberties in circulation among collectors too. The graders have identified a certain "marking" on the counterfeits that identifies the coins. Seems there is an unusual mark like an omega symbol.

So, now, "real" Lady Liberties begin to enter the system. A collector wants to certify a coin... Then another collector wants to certify his/her coin...

Anything in excess of the melt value is speculation which oftentimes causes the whole deal to bust.

The $1.8 mill would have buttered my toast just fine.
