PRE LONG BEACH REPORT

VISIT US AT OUR NEW TABLE UPFRONT 601 AT LONG BEACH! 

A QUIET WEEK

Not sure what happened.  Maybe it was the bad weather or people are getting ready for the Long Beach Show and Auctions.  We had a very quiet week every which way save for one Want List (found a six figure coin).  We did six figures in sales, but the action was spotty at best (call us spoiled).

Until last now, activity across the board had been strong and above average for the time period. We are not changing our forecast of a good quarter for the market. The demand is still there.

Our biggest concern right now is supply. Sure we can find a few coins here and there, but the majority of what we really need (all $20 million in Want Lists-we can not find at all). These days all we get offered by people seems to be high priced unexciting coins we do NOT need. For us, with out finding specific coins  (like the $10 14D PCGS MS67 CAC  or the $1 1851+1852 PCGS MS64 CAC coins that we recently placed) our business slows to a drip-even with a million dollar plus inventory. We’ll stock coins we like and forget-it may not be what is selling in the marketplace at that time. Its kinda wired but consistent how the market flows if you have a web site. Auctions, never seem to slow.

There really are many sets being built right now-maybe too many as we hear multiple Want Lists for items (like $10 1933 PCGS MS64, the best 5C Lib Proofs, and high grade Indian Cents).  Legend has a dozen MAJOR collections under construction that are NOT registered we are currently building. There really IS that much activity out there these days.  Which is why we are so bullish on the market for the first few months of the year. So this past “off” week was just a blip. We are also predicting Long Beach WILL be a good show.

Back to supply and Want Lists: here a few coins we badly need (ALL MUST BE CAC):

2C  1864 SM MOTTO PCGS PR66 RB CAC

2C  1864 LG MOTTO PCGS PR66RB CAC

5c 1888 PCGS PR67 CAC

50C  1912 PCGS PR67 CAC OR BETTER OR CAM/DC

$1  1846 PCGS MS65 CAC

$20  1907 HR WE PCGS MS66 CAC OR BETTER

$20  1915 PCGS MS65 CAC

We would like to buy more then one coin this month for a Want List!

NEWPS

We do have quite a selection this week. In the past two weeks we had some “old friends” come back via trades and we bought a small deal.   Highlights include:

10C 1897O PCGS MS67 CAC-A grossly UNDERvauled O Mint!

$1 1901 PCGS PR67 Cameo CAC-Only 2 graded after 30+ years!

25C   1820 SM O PCGS PR64 CAC-LESS MINTED then a 1894S 10C!

A stunning selection of Choice MS Seated Dollars. the ultimate highlight-$1 1852 PCGS MS63 CAC-the highest graded CAC piece that will be available for years to come!

Do not forget to check out our regular inventory as well. We have some of the best coins on the market-all PCGS CAC!
