Legend Market Report – Post Thanksgiving Coin Market

By Laura Sperber – Legend Numismatics ……   GIVING THANKS For sure, this year was slightly better than this time last year. The plunge had been quick and deep in the coin market during 2014-15. Clearly the Gardner and Pogue Sales sped up the downward run. We felt that since May of this year the […]

Legend Numismatics: Pre Long Beach Expo Market Report

By Laura Sperber – Legend Numismatics …….   ON/OFF Last week in the office was very quiet. It’s like the light switch was flipped off. Only a handful of orders and inquiries came in.

Legend Numismatics Market Report – The ANA Coin Show

Legend Numismatics Market Report – The ANA Coin Show

By Laura Sperber – Legend Numismatics …… LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION We’ll be blunt: Anaheim for sure was a VERY poor choice to hold a major coin show. California’s nexus on taxes kept dozens of dealers away. Also, many East Coast dealers decided NOT to attend. The hotels at BEST were POOR. Add all that together and we […]

Classic US Coins: The 1913 Liberty Nickel Through the Years

By Eric Brothers for CoinWeek …..   There are several theories associated with the creation of the 1913 Liberty (V) nickel.

Legend Numismatics Hot Topics – A Bad Culture

By Laura Sperber – Legend Numismatics …….   REALLY? For years now coin doctoring and gradeflation have been two of if not the biggest problems with the hobby.

Legend Numismatics Rare Coin Market Report – Pre-New Orleans PCGS Invitational

By Laura Sperber – Legend Numismatics ….   WE CAN’T BELIEVE IT We thought May would be a decent month. So far, it’s turning out to be a record-breaking month! Again, late January thought early March was a “perfect storm” of negativity from the coin market (as well as oil, stocks, etc). Prices certainly fell sharply during […]

The Coin Market Report – The Dallas ANA Mid Winter Coin Show

By Laura Sperber – Legend Numismatics …..   SORT OF TYPICAL FOR A MID WINTER SHOW While the ANA works hard to put on a good show, these ANA Mid Winters are poorly attended and really should not exist. We do them because we are creatures of habit and are typical coin dealers afraid to […]
