I had placed a bid in the $500 range during my lunch hour.
Then got an email from a contact (aka dealer). I immediately retracted my bid. Why?
I was put on notice that a complete serial numbered (each the same serial number) set of Mishler Hawaii/Alaska Statehood medals will be at the Baltimore Coin Show (started today and ends Sunday). The set is 5 coins (aluminum has no serial number). And the price that was provided was fair…
Each coin is NGC graded. The sterling silver is the highest graded….
With this information I retracted my bid….and moved up my Baltimore Coin Show visit to a weeknight rather than a weekend….
Baltimore has always been good to me… My population of 1 release ceremony gold coins that I donated to the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historical Shrine is a good example. https://coins.www.collectors-society.com/wcm/CoinCustomSetView.aspx?s=9738
