My Philosophy

I have been collecting coins for over 30 years, and during that time I have come to appreciate coins that are CHOICE, ORIGINAL, and PROBLEM FREE. Choice being coins that have above average eye appeal and that are usually strong for the grade. Original being coins that have never been cleaned, dipped, or messed with in any way - coins that have natural surfaces and color. Problem free being coins that have no noticeable nicks, cuts, digs, scratches, spots, corrosion, or my most hated of all - rim bumps or bruises. In searching for coins with these qualities you will soon realize how truly RARE they are, Barber coinage especially. Of the surviving Barber Coins the vast majority have been worn down to grade AG or Good. When looking at the higher grade coins that remain most have problems or have been cleaned at one time. Even the so called "common dates" are tough to locate in nice original condition. It is these few surviving choice, original, problem free coins for which I search.

Over the years I have bought a number of coins thru the mail, the great majority of which I was very disappointed with. I always wished that there was some way I could "see the coin first"! Today with computers, scanners, and the Internet this is possible. Since I have started selling some of my coins and helping other collectors with their collecting, I have made it my goal to give today's collectors what I never had. The opportunity to see the coin before you order. By clicking on the coins listed you will go to a high quality enlarged color scan of each coin. I also use a rating system I developed. A parenthesis ( , ) with 2 numbers inside to rate color and surfaces. The link to "EYE APPEAL SYSTEM" will take you to a chart which will explain what I call a coins circulated state.

In my opinion nice original coins offer a great value in today's market. As more and more collectors realize how scarce these coins are, prices and premiums are sure to go up. I am always willing to pay a premium for such coins, and in most instances you have to pay a premium over listed prices to obtain such coins. My advice to all collectors would be to buy only nice original coins and avoid problem and cleaned coins. Someday when it comes time to sell you will realize why.

The following lists contain a few coins that I have available. I hope you see something of interest or something needed for your collection. If you are interested in any coin contact me by Email. Happy Collecting, Randy Holder.
