Collecting Strategies Series: Barber Quarters

Posted by: John Feigenbaum on July 2, 2015

It's no secret that we love Barber quarters here at David Lawrence Rare Coins. Our fondness for this series goes back to our founder, David Lawrence, who collected the series as a kid, and went on to write the most important reference book on the series, The Complete Guide to Barber Quarters. (The second edition of this book is available free on our web site for your reference -- link.)

DLRC Cherrypicks the Pogue Coin Collection, Part 1

Posted by: John Feigenbaum on June 1, 2015

The first of six installments of the famous D. Brent Pogue Collection has now crossed the block at Sotheby's, courtesy of Stack's-Bowers Galleries. The Pogue Collection is one of the most exciting assemblages of United States coins to ever be offered at public auction. Certainly, it is the best since the famous Eliasberg Collection was broken up (in the 1970's-1990's). We were lucky to obtain two great coins at this sale. Read on...

Verify Your Certs!

Posted by: John Feigenbaum on April 30, 2015

There are a lot of pitfalls in buying rare coins, but one thing you don't have to fall short on is verifying the certification # on your slabs. PCGS, NGC and CAC all offer a form to validate the certification # on a slab matches the coin in their database. 

It's not an end-all as someone could still replicate slab inserts with the same coin date and grade, but this is one more step.

You'll also get some additional information here including pricing, population data and more, so it's a good idea to bookmark these links and check your certs!

FOCUS ON UNCIRCULATED WASHINGTON QUARTERS

Posted by: John Feigenbaum on April 19, 2015

It's no secret that Washington quarters are one of of my all-time favorite series of U.S. coins. My interest in the series was fostered back in the early 1990's when, as a relative newcomer to professional numismatics, I was surprised at the accessibility (price-wise) of high grade, early Washington quarters, and the strong collector demand. The funny thing was, it was really hard to find enough coins in the market. That quick analysis led me to believe that the series was seriously undervalued, and prices would soon rise. read on...
