a cent for your thoughts

A reader cordially disagreed with my use of the word “curated” in the November 2018 edition of COINage. The column, headlined “Curated, Not Cleaned,” focused on collector misunderstanding about cleaning coins. It appears I may have a misunderstanding about the word curated. The reader politely wrote that instead of curated, the word should have been conserved: “… ‘curated’ has nothing to do with the cleaning of coins ... Curation is the process of assembling, management and presentation of a collection. Conservation may be related to management but is not the same as curated,” he counseled. Some experts involved with the recovery and cataloging of the fabulous California Gold Rush sunken treasure recovered from the SS Central America, the legendary “Ship of Gold” that sank in 1857, have been using “curated” for 19…

threat of trump impeachment could lead to rare coin bull market

A recent episode of “Meet the Press,” a Sunday political talk show, opened with an interview of liberal billionaire hedge fund manager and campaign investor Tom Steyer. Steyer has spent tens of millions of dollars on a televised ad campaign to impeach U.S. President Donald Trump, and Steyer plans to spend millions more on a digital ad campaign to call for the president’s impeachment. Also, court documents were made public by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III detailing new allegations against Michael Cohen, the president’s former lawyer. Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said these reports provide enough evidence for starting impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said these reports are “really concerning” and said she is interested in learning what else investigators will dig up now that Cohen, in a recent guilty plea, admitted…

everything you always wanted to know about america’s early silver coinage

To my mother’s generation, “the good silver” meant the fancy knives and forks and spoons that she got as a wedding present in 1941 that we only got out at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, even if I knew that it was only silver plate that needed to be polished by us kids before each said dinner. To my father’s generation, “Silver” was the Lone Ranger’s horse on the radio broadcasts. In metallurgy, silver is a semi-precious metal prized for its luster and ductility. It made great jewelry but lousy tools, which is why we had an “Iron Age” and a “Bronze Age” but never a “Silver Age.” Nevertheless, its world-wide desirability eventually caused it to be melted and poured into lumps of approximately the same size and weight, stamped with iron…

no silver lining

One of my favorite coins has always been the Morgan silver dollar, minted by the U.S. from 1878 to 1904 – and then, after a hiatus, in 1921. It is a precious metal store of value, with each coin’s original content being nearly an ounce of silver (0.7734 oz. silver). The silver content alone makes the Morgan a sterling hold, but this coin is a double play: Not only is it made from precious metal, but it also contains valuable numismatic history. From Anna Willess Williams, who modeled for George Morgan’s portrait of Ms. Liberty, to the dissention between Morgan and fellow engraver Charles Barber, this grand coin is the quintessential collectible. Some years back, I learned firsthand what the drawbacks are for someone such as me who has an affinity…

scott travers’ top 12 coins for 2019

2019 will probably not be a year of surprises, good or bad, for the rare coin and precious metals market. It will likely be remembered as a year of the expected and a time of continuity and reasonable trading ranges. Without a Black Swan event, an extremely difficult to predict monumental occurrence, and I don’t expect one, gold will not surge in value and, by extension, rare coin values won’t reach for the moon. Silver, an industrial metal and commodity, will not see its most shining year either. The good news is that stability will reign supreme. I wouldn’t be a big buyer of gold and silver bullion as an investment in 2019; instead, I would carefully and systematically acquire gold and silver coins for your collection. Platinum and palladium, however, are a…
