Old Coins, New Prices

Almost all of these coins have been listed before and almost all have had their prices reduced, some substantially. Thus the name of the list, "Old Coins, New Prices". We are leaving for the ANA show in Chicago on August 11th (or before). If we receive your order (and payment) by Thursday August 8th we can almost certainly get it out before we leave. If we get the order on Friday or after we might not be able to the order out until we return.
