For several months I have been collecting The

"Silver Dollars Of The 20th Century". (11 so far, to be exact) 1971 - 1999

And the VERY Disappointing Thing is that NONE of them are Worth The Cost Of Shipping and Purchase Price (Over 50 Dollars EACH).

The worth runs from $1.25 for the Susan B. Anthony coins, to the 71 - 76

Eisenhower Dollars, THE Most an "S" valued at 51 dollars, THIS Coin OF Course Has NOT been Sent, just the Plain Mint Mark coins worth about 10 Bucks average.

TRUE they are ALL in "Sealed" "Brilliant Uncirculated" condition, but even THAT condition DOES NOT warrant any High Value.

I still have about a year left to finish the collection, and they will refund the Purchase Price for "UP TO" One year After Delivery,

(THAT is another Snag which IS NOT Clear in their Advertising)

BUT Not the Shipping Costs.

My Suggestion is.

"If You are an AVID Coin Collector, Seek A Reputable Dealer, or look On-Line for great deals" and NOT :

"The Bradford Exchange".

"Bradford Twentieth Century U.S. Silver Dollar Collection".

Your's Truly :

Rev. Gary Cate


Product or Service Mentioned: The Bradford Exchange Coin.

Reason of review: Pricing issue.

Preferred solution: The Purchase Price of Each Coin SHOULD Be Reduced to the TRUE Value, or an Average of "TRUE VALUE" such as 5 to 10 dollars each and NO MORE. Also the Shipping Costs arre too High for the weight of 3rd class mail, as they ARE NOT an Insured Item..

You must be referring to the 1973-S 40% silver Eisenhower Dollar @ $51. There are very few dollar coins issued during the 20th century which command significant premiums and must be in very high grade to do so.

Education is the key ; learn what is what and how to grade. You must examine many coins under different lighting as the grading differences can be very subtle. Key 20th century dates include : 1901-S, 1903-S, 1921 Peace, high relief, 1928-P, 1934-S, 2000-P Sacagawea "Cheerios" coin, 2000-P "wounded eagle" variety and several others which must be in very high grade to command top dollar. I have been dealing in coins and currency since 1962 and am 100% sure that you are overpaying for common coins.

You were correct when advising to seek a reputable dealer, but beware of online sales until you're sure of your own abilities.

A holder with a grade marked on it is only as good as the grading company. Stick with PCGS and NGC.

I too am a professional numismatist, and we receive the fallout from people who have paid unconscionably high prices for common coins ; they bring them to me for evaluation, but when informed of the true value blame ME for trying to "steal" their items. My only retort is that "I'm not offering to buy them ; I don't want them - but here is the true value". The problem is that they grossly overpaid for what they received and are looking for a scapegoat or whipping boy to punish for their own foolishness.
