Coins We Love: An Energetic Market

Coins We Love: An Energetic Market

Wow, good to be back at the office this week, but it’s always a roller coaster!

We’ve had coins flying in and out this week, with a large number of new pieces and a couple of small collections that are soon to be offered in our weekly auctions. I’ve had the pleasure of spending the last few days on the phone with collectors and dealers, and the energy from the hobby is certainly booming. We hear about coin shortages (real ones exist in the rare coin business right now), how coin shops are thriving, and also we hear about the negatives when things don’t go quite right (here at DLRC and far more often elsewhere). We're doing our best to keep up with the changing numismatic landscape and it’s certainly a fun time to be buying and selling coins. Placing a number of $100 coins in a Mercury Dime Collection is equally as energizing as placing an 1854-D $3 with a new collector! Helping others in any way is our pleasure and we’re honored to be your partner in collecting here at DLRC.

One piece of news that flashed across my inbox today was the departure of our friend, Brett Charville, from PCGS. Brett served PCGS as President for the past several years after closing down his coin business and has continued to be a friend of ours, on the bourse and off. We’re going to miss seeing Brett in that role in the coming years, but we wish him the best of good luck in his new endeavors. Brett has been a great advocate for the collector at PCGS in his time there. We’ll miss working with him and we hope that he knows that he has set the bar incredibly high for whoever takes his office.

Numismatically Yours,
John Brush and Your Friends at DLRC
