Sometimes you just have to step up    
I acquired a very rare coin for which I had two want list customers.  I called the first one.  The coin is the last coin he needs for his set.  He had been looking for one for over ten years.  The coin is very rare, which is why it is the last coin he needs for his set.  And of course other collectors need it for their sets also.

Price history was sparse, but a few prices were available.  A comparable coin but with a hole in it sold for about half of the price of my coin.  Another coin but higher graded sold for nearly 2 1/2 times the price of my coin.  And another coin in even higher grade was the most recent coin sold, and it sold for about 50% more than the price of my coin.  I had purchased that coin and was willing to pay a lot more for it, but I didn't have to.  In view of all of this, what would you do?

You guessed it, he decided to pass on it, because he was focused only on the last auction result.

So I called the next customer who had the coin on his want list, and he said, "Put it on hold, let me think about it overnight, I will give you a decision tomorrow."  He bought the coin and loves it, and especially he loves how much his set has improved now that it includes the rarest coin in the series.

When I was a collector, I was cognizant of how rare all the coins were that I needed for my sets.  I also knew how long I had been looking for certain coins.  All of that entered into my decision as to whether to buy or not buy a certain coin.  What I learned was that sometimes you just have to step up to buy the last, rarest, most unavailable coin you need, because if you don't, the next astute collector will probably buy it and you might need to wait another ten years (or more) to get another chance.

Just my opinion.              - - Rich Uhrich
Looking Toward The Future
My next three shows are local Central Pennsylvania shows in Lancaster (Sept. 13), Gettysburg (Sept. 20-21) and Harrisburg (Oct. 4).  Later in October, I will be at the PAN show (Monroeville, PA near Pittsburgh) and then Baltimore.   If you go to any of these shows, please stop by and say hello!
