  • Chris Vee: "I bought a 1922-D plain, strong reverse penny and 1931-S penny. Good weekend if you ask me!"
  • Patrick A Rigg: "Nothing really. Did order my 2015 Silver Eagle proof dollar. Those things are so cool. Love me some silver."
  • Chris Tonnerstone: "Bought yet another set of 2013 West Point Minted Enhanced & Reverse proof Silver Eagles PCGS 70 FS. The best numismatic opportunity today."
  • Adam Gilmore: "1909 S/Horizontal S Lincoln Cent PCGS MS63RB"
