Benefactor KenDorney Posted December 16, 2022 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted December 16, 2022 Since many are showing off their nice additions for the year I thought I would as well, though the number is very small. It has not been a great year for adding anything to my collection, so what you see below is pretty much it (I do have a very nice Lucius Verus sestertius incoming). A few thoughts. This year seems to show that prices are remaining fairly high for many coins. While I can see some softening of the market (likely due to fears of recession), higher grade coins still seem very strong. One can surely get coins very cheaply when they are in lower grades or have problems, but any true 'good VF' or better is almost impossible to obtain at reasonable prices (as least what seems reasonable to me). Luckily I am not caught up in obtaining the highest grade coins possible. I am perfectly happy with worn coins, but for me they must have nice surfaces and patina. Thus I am often able to find at least a few a year for the collection. I would be interested to hear what other thoughts are on the subject, from both a buyers and seller point of view. This next year might be an interesting one, if only I had a crystal ball! 31 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
