END OF JULY REPORT
SlOW BUT STEADY
We can't say this was a great July. To a degree collectors stepped back and relaxed for the summer. There was clearly a spark at the Baltimore Auction, but little else happened. We did no big deals, nor did we hear of any. We are a little surprised that our sales for this July so far are more then all of last years July. Our expectations are for activity to pick up around ANA and last until through the FUN Show.
Suggestions: PR 3CN Nickels are cheap, as are ALL PR Barber Coins in 64 or better. Good time to build some to build sets!
Obvuoisly gold has taken amajor tumble. Being the gold bugs we are we are kinda shocked it fell so hard-but traders do things like that (if it goes up or down its always too fast too hard). There is an interesting offset from the decline. We did get a HUGE order for 500 MS 65 Saints at a certain price. we figured no problem. We were shocked to see the preiums which had been weak all year, are strong and are even moving up. Why? We have heard reports from several major marketers of generic gold that sales for items like MS65 Saints have jump 3X in the past few weeks. plus, there is speculation gold has hit its resistence point at $1,050.00 per ounce. Now we can not fill the order anyway, the supply of MS 65 Saints has dried up.
We are still bullish on gold. Especially semi-generic items like GEM MS64/65 $5 Indians. Coins like those are down as much as 50% from two years ago. These are many other areas of GEMGeneric gold you can get really good deals on right now. It is our opinion that building a choiceor GEM Type set right now is VERY smart and very well should lead to strong financial rewards. You knwo at some point oil will rebound, there will be some country doing something, and gold will rebound.
With ANA apporaching in two weeks, we're slowing down a little. We're not gong to post any big NEWPS untul AFTER ANA. This weeks highlights won't make any headlines, but oh, are these coins awesome! Lookie: 1C 1937 PCGS PR66+ CAMEO CAC, 10C 1897 PCGS PR68 CAMEO CAC, $1 1878S PCGS MS67 CAC, 50C 1936 OREGON PCGS MS68 CAC.
ALL NEWPS RE NOW POSTED!
