WELCOME TO MY COIN BOOK AND MY STORE
All my items are photographed using a 200x digital - microscope - camera, usually 4 or more pictures are provided, using only natural unfiltered with no enhancement light. I do not clean or treat any of my coins, all coins are raw unless otherwise stated. Please check the photos to be sure the items that you are considering, meet your expectation before purchasing. Remember a Private Message may prevent a unhappy conclusion.
All of my coins are in 2 x 2 holders, identified and graded. That's what you do when your retired and have the time. I also have slab coins and sleeve currency.
I do all my own grading and as I have learned, coin grading is very subjective, even between Certified Grading Company's. Grading is based on the Official ANA Grading Standards for United States Coins using the Sheldon/Judd Scale. As this is my hobby and not my profession I also use US PHOTO COIN GRADING GUIDE.That is a real good guide!
My BADBEAT COIN BOOK features my collection of U.S.A. coins and currency as well as a general section that includes Foreign and World coins. In My Coin Book I use the latest Official Red Book and USA Coin Book values, as well as market influences to make value determinations.
My BADBEAT STORE features Foreign and World coins in Categories that are more conducive to locating numismatic items by Region, Country, and denomination. In My Store I use Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, and there World Coin Price Guide to provide Krause Catalog Numbers,values and specifications, as indicated, at the time I list each item. As with all the items I list I am more then willing to negotiate prices and shipping and handling, as the market fluctuates.
I SHIP TO ALL OF NORTH AMERICA, AS WELL AS THROUGH OUT THE WORLD"ASK FOR QUOTES", I WILL COMBINE SHIPPING WHERE EVER POSSIBLE. CREDITS WILL BE ISSUED BACK THROUGH PAY PAL. INSURANCE AND TRACKING ONLY IF REQUESTED AT ADDITIONAL COSTS.
As I said at the beginning "This is my Hobby". I do not consider it My Business. Thank you for sharing your time with me.
PS. I ALSO LIKE TO PLAY A LITTLE TEXAS HOLD'EM AS THE NAME IMPLIES
