MCC Diamonds in the Rough
« on: January 29, 2013, 08:35:22 AM »
I love stories like these:

http://news.yahoo.com/humble-nickel-1913-likely-fetch-millions-084723325.html

Which makes you wonder how many MCC's could possibly fall into the super rare category that are not discovered...or are discoverd but have not realized their fullest potential.  The early days of China mint production can hold many secrets that may not be discovered for years.

This coin was sold in the mid-40's for $3700, which was ALOT of money back then.  70 years later it is now worth millions.  Makes you want to hold for generations, because you just never know.

A 1790 something US silver dollar just sold for $10 million setting a new record.  My question is how rare is the 1984 silver goldfish?  Are there about 12 sets graded at NGC?  I asked this question and they will get back to me.  It is not as rare as the nickle but still quite rare from what I read.   My focus is rare MCC that new collectors can afford...........Crazy, hard to believe prices for rare US coins.....Wow of the year.......

I own one 1990 and one 1984 silver goldfish.  No sets.  My curiosity is the 1984 silver goldfish set.  Rumors of them being rare but how rare?    Are they expensive?   Have not read much about them so have a few questions.  One is better than none!.........
