Let's just hope things work out, what with the discontinuation of the SAEs for the time being. Looks like this issue will be a sell-out; there's only a little more than 100K copies left according to Numismaster. The special set, possibly of the Legend type, will sell out PDQ.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4433024393760369647.post-65528229084465448712009-03-05T14:46:00.000-08:002009-03-05T14:46:00.000-08:00Anyone else get a proof coin with multiple scratch...Anyone else get a proof coin with multiple scratches and and hazing?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4433024393760369647.post-56574667492165220302009-02-27T17:05:00.000-08:002009-02-27T17:05:00.000-08:00I recently called PCGS and found out they do not o...I recently called PCGS and found out they do not offer "first strike" certification on commemorative coins, including the Lincoln silver dollar.

With the minting of the Lincoln reverse design cents, it would have been all Lincoln, all the time. At least for a time anyway. Then they could have gotten some self-cross-pollinated marketing working, and maybe they sell more commems. Or maybe people are just tapped out and trying to hold on in these times.
