Been coin collector long time, most of my purchases have been direct from mint last 30 years.
Looking forward to my new 1909 penny

i think thats kinda silly. you could put $4,000 into an emerging markets mutual fund and make 20% easy a year. that penny has no real value. you could have taken delivery of almost 6 ounces of gold!

Last few years my Euro overseas funds have been doing 30% percent year
That penny has out performed all stock funds and gold value over the years
1 cent to value of $5000 do the math

its like artwork, imo its only worth what another collector, cough, greater dummy, will pay for it. and its worth 3999 because thats what you paid for it, if it was going up in value so fast the guy wouldn't have sold it to you, and would have waited a year and got more for it.

i only said 20 because who knows if going forward will be as good as the last few years. can't forget my china/world funds that are already up 50% this year and its only november
