Who would have thunk
A few weeks back I submitted a 1986 S Prestige set for grading. I did it mainly for the Liberty half dollar and dollar. But boy what a fantastic suprise that awaited me as I entered the coins into my registry. The Liberty's both graded PF 69 UC but that was far from what came next. The 1986 S Jefferson nickel came back a great PF 70 UC with a full market value of $2500.00 I almost had a minor stroke, In my wildest dreams I would have never thought a 26 year old Jefferson nickel could be worth 50000 times face value. Proof positive that God answers prayer.
I'm new to coin collecting, At the moment I'm working on getting my proof and Mint sets graded. I can't send in many as I'm a totally disabled vet living on my disability. But now I belive I'm hooked for life. I just might make my goal of paying most of my grand Kids collage fund ( If my son ever gets started that is) This day will be remembered as a special day for a very long time. Fingers crossed that I'll have another day that comes close to making me as happy as I am now about starting to collect coins. And the best part is I bought a set of Freedom coins as seen on tv you know the ones. cheap coins with no value. But I just had to have them lol.
Happy Collecting And God Bless
P.S. Images of all my coins to come within the next month.
