Antiques often have a ","noIndex":0,"noFollow":0},"content":"You're going to spend some money on furniture and accessories, so you may as well buy something that can hold its value after you use it. Antiques often have a greater chance of retaining value than new machine-made furniture. Plus, antiques add a sense of warmth, history, and character to your house.\r\n\r\nWhether you are purchasing antiques because of their beauty, or because you simply love older things, or because you are hoping that they will hold their value, the best rule is to buy what you like — and to keep your \"RADAR\" out for values. RADAR is an acronym that stands for <b>R</b>arity, <b>A</b>esthetics, <b>D</b>esirability, <b>A</b>uthenticity, and <b>R</b>eally great condition.\r\n\r\nWhen you find an antique that meets these five criteria, you've probably found an item that's likely to appreciate in value as the years go by.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Rarity</h2>\r\nWhat constitutes a <i>rarity?</i> If no one else on your block owns one, you know that it's worth something. If no one in your zip code has one, it might be worth even more. And if no one in your area code has one, chances are, you have a piece that's pretty valuable.\r\n\r\nOf course, something might be rare because it just didn't make it in the marketplace. The piece might be too large, too loud, or too ugly. Still, if <i>you </i>like it, well, this aspect of rarity can work to your advantage.\r\n\r\nHow do you know if it's rare? Here are a few of the attributes of a rare piece.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><b>Few were made in the first place</b>. For example, only royalty or the rich could afford gold boxes for snuff, so only a few were made.</li>\r\n \t<li><b>Few of the original pieces remain</b>. Some functional and breakable antiques were manufactured in relatively large numbers but are now more scarce, such as crystal stemware, porcelain dishes, and tea sets. But even items that aren't as fragile as glass or ceramics, such as wood tables and cabinets, are at risk of being damaged, and perhaps damaged so badly they are discarded over time.</li>\r\n \t<li><b>A rare or unusual color or design for a particular type of antique</b>. Many <i>mold-blown</i> (glass that is blown into a mold) early 19th century cream pitchers are clear. Sapphire-colored cream pitchers from this era are rare. In <i>Carnival glass </i>(an early 20th century commercially produced glass), marigold is a fairly common color; Carnival glass in shades of red is more collectible because fewer pieces were made.</li>\r\n \t<li><b>Unusual size or shape</b>. These antiques \"shaped up\" in unusual ways. Some examples of rarities in terms of size or shape include silver spoons or other utensils with a specialized purpose, such as silver <i>stuffing spoons</i> used for stuffing a turkey or goose or <i>marrow spoons </i>used for coaxing the marrow out of bones. Also unusual are a miniature, fine-quality <i>salesman's sample </i>of a piece of furniture from the early 19th century; or a large capacity candle mold for making 20 to 40 candles instead of the more common dozen-capacity molds.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Reproducibility</strong>. If a piece is not being reproduced or is difficult to reproduce, its rarity increases.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Aesthetics</h2>\r\nYou may look at a piece, and think \"If only that orange line weren't painted down the middle of it . . .\" or, \"If only that carving weren't slightly off-center. When you can look at a piece without wishing this or that were different about it, when all the elements of it blend together in perfect harmony, and when it has an overall pleasing appearance, then that item really has it in the aesthetics department.\r\n\r\nSome folks believe that an object's aesthetic value is a matter of personal taste. On the other hand, some pieces of art and furniture have almost universal aesthetic appeal. Visiting art galleries and museums is one great way to see antique objects of art that are considered aesthetically pleasing. Books on your areas of interest also will show the better pieces.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Desirability</h2>\r\nDesirability is defined by what's in vogue in the current market. A few decades after Tiffany created his now-famous lamps, some people thought of them as gaudy, and so prices were steals by today's standards. Now people covet the artistry that Tiffany displayed.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Authenticity</h2>\r\nIs it the real thing or is it a mere shadow of the original? Is it from the time period the seller says it's from? Is it made by the artist or company that is indicated? If it's signed, is the signature real? Is it the type of antique the seller says it is?\r\n\r\nPart of the mystery and fun of antiques is separating truth from fiction. As technology and the ability to reproduce items become more advanced, identifying the authentic antique becomes more difficult.\r\nHere are some clues and tips to help you analyze whether an antique is authentic:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><b>Time period:</b> A piece of furniture can look old and still be born yesterday. For example, you can use old wood and create a new piece of furniture.

However, a signature is not in itself enough to authenticate a piece. Here's where your specialization comes in: You need to know the types of pieces Tiffany made — the texture of the glass, the colors, and the styles — and make sure that all the elements make sense before you can believe the signature.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><b>The type of material:</b> Is that bronze statue the real thing? Spelter, a combination of metals, can look like bronze. But spelter does not wear as well, is lighter weight, cannot be cast in as fine a detail, and is far less valuable.

But a lot may have happened in the last hundred or so years to the piece you are hoping to make your own.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">Here's the rule as far as value goes: The less that was done to the original item to alter it, the more it's worth.

For furniture, mint implies no repairs or missing pieces and an original finish.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><i>Excellent condition</i> means that the piece has minor flaws. Maybe there's a veneer chip on a table top that has been expertly repaired; or perhaps there's a pinhead flake on the base of a porcelain vase.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><i>Good condition</i> means the piece has suffered a few slings and arrows and come through them. Perhaps a porcelain figurine's finger has broken and been repaired by an expert.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nDamage affects the value of different categories in different ways. What might be a minor chip or crack in a piece of porcelain can significantly devalue a piece of glass. The porcelain is restorable, in the hands of an expert restorer, and the glass typically is not, with the exception of minor rim chips.\r\n<p class=\"Tip\">It is polite to stare when it comes to shopping for value in antiques. Look carefully at each item you're considering buying, inside and out, upside down, and right side up. You want to understand the damage and changes the piece has undergone so that you can understand if the price pleases you. Also, knowing the flaws of a piece can be a negotiating tool.</p>\r\nHere's a quick guideline for the types of flaws you can look out for when examining antiques:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Scratches</li>\r\n \t<li>Breaks and tears</li>\r\n \t<li>Dings and gouges</li>\r\n \t<li>Chips</li>\r\n \t<li>Cracks</li>\r\n \t<li>Fractures</li>\r\n \t<li>Signs of repair, such as glue, runny paint, mismatched screws or nails, or putty</li>\r\n \t<li>Missing parts</li>\r\n \t<li>Discoloration</li>\r\n \t<li>On figurines, broken noses or missing fingers</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">The real question is how much does the damage bother you? Anytime a piece sustains damage, its value decreases. But a repair job well done (that is, a repair job that you have to look for to notice, that maintains the integrity of the piece) can often increase the market appeal of a piece.</p>","description":"You're going to spend some money on furniture and accessories, so you may as well buy something that can hold its value after you use it. Antiques often have a greater chance of retaining value than new machine-made furniture. Plus, antiques add a sense of warmth, history, and character to your house.\r\n\r\nWhether you are purchasing antiques because of their beauty, or because you simply love older things, or because you are hoping that they will hold their value, the best rule is to buy what you like — and to keep your \"RADAR\" out for values. RADAR is an acronym that stands for <b>R</b>arity, <b>A</b>esthetics, <b>D</b>esirability, <b>A</b>uthenticity, and <b>R</b>eally great condition.\r\n\r\nWhen you find an antique that meets these five criteria, you've probably found an item that's likely to appreciate in value as the years go by.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Rarity</h2>\r\nWhat constitutes a <i>rarity?</i> If no one else on your block owns one, you know that it's worth something. If no one in your zip code has one, it might be worth even more. And if no one in your area code has one, chances are, you have a piece that's pretty valuable.\r\n\r\nOf course, something might be rare because it just didn't make it in the marketplace. The piece might be too large, too loud, or too ugly. Still, if <i>you </i>like it, well, this aspect of rarity can work to your advantage.\r\n\r\nHow do you know if it's rare? Here are a few of the attributes of a rare piece.\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><b>Few were made in the first place</b>. For example, only royalty or the rich could afford gold boxes for snuff, so only a few were made.</li>\r\n \t<li><b>Few of the original pieces remain</b>. Some functional and breakable antiques were manufactured in relatively large numbers but are now more scarce, such as crystal stemware, porcelain dishes, and tea sets. But even items that aren't as fragile as glass or ceramics, such as wood tables and cabinets, are at risk of being damaged, and perhaps damaged so badly they are discarded over time.</li>\r\n \t<li><b>A rare or unusual color or design for a particular type of antique</b>. Many <i>mold-blown</i> (glass that is blown into a mold) early 19th century cream pitchers are clear. Sapphire-colored cream pitchers from this era are rare. In <i>Carnival glass </i>(an early 20th century commercially produced glass), marigold is a fairly common color; Carnival glass in shades of red is more collectible because fewer pieces were made.</li>\r\n \t<li><b>Unusual size or shape</b>. These antiques \"shaped up\" in unusual ways. Some examples of rarities in terms of size or shape include silver spoons or other utensils with a specialized purpose, such as silver <i>stuffing spoons</i> used for stuffing a turkey or goose or <i>marrow spoons </i>used for coaxing the marrow out of bones. Also unusual are a miniature, fine-quality <i>salesman's sample </i>of a piece of furniture from the early 19th century; or a large capacity candle mold for making 20 to 40 candles instead of the more common dozen-capacity molds.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Reproducibility</strong>. If a piece is not being reproduced or is difficult to reproduce, its rarity increases.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Aesthetics</h2>\r\nYou may look at a piece, and think \"If only that orange line weren't painted down the middle of it . . .\" or, \"If only that carving weren't slightly off-center. When you can look at a piece without wishing this or that were different about it, when all the elements of it blend together in perfect harmony, and when it has an overall pleasing appearance, then that item really has it in the aesthetics department.\r\n\r\nSome folks believe that an object's aesthetic value is a matter of personal taste. On the other hand, some pieces of art and furniture have almost universal aesthetic appeal. Visiting art galleries and museums is one great way to see antique objects of art that are considered aesthetically pleasing. Books on your areas of interest also will show the better pieces.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Desirability</h2>\r\nDesirability is defined by what's in vogue in the current market. A few decades after Tiffany created his now-famous lamps, some people thought of them as gaudy, and so prices were steals by today's standards. Now people covet the artistry that Tiffany displayed.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Authenticity</h2>\r\nIs it the real thing or is it a mere shadow of the original? Is it from the time period the seller says it's from? Is it made by the artist or company that is indicated? If it's signed, is the signature real? Is it the type of antique the seller says it is?\r\n\r\nPart of the mystery and fun of antiques is separating truth from fiction. As technology and the ability to reproduce items become more advanced, identifying the authentic antique becomes more difficult.\r\nHere are some clues and tips to help you analyze whether an antique is authentic:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><b>Time period:</b> A piece of furniture can look old and still be born yesterday. For example, you can use old wood and create a new piece of furniture. You can hire 100 people to trample a new Oriental rug to give it a worn in look.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><b>Artist or company:</b> An object with a Tiffany signature is worth more than an object without one. However, a signature is not in itself enough to authenticate a piece. Here's where your specialization comes in: You need to know the types of pieces Tiffany made — the texture of the glass, the colors, and the styles — and make sure that all the elements make sense before you can believe the signature.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><b>The type of material:</b> Is that bronze statue the real thing?

Berman:</b> Neil S. Berman has been an expert numismatist and professional rare coin dealer since 1968. Coming back to the United States from Israel at the end of 1967, he apprenticed to the world-renowned Dutch numismatist and coin auctioneer Hans M. F. Schulman. He incorporated as Neil S. Berman, Inc., in 1968. In 1974, Neil became an associate of Metropolitan Rare Coin Company of New York. For the next several years, he represented Arthur and Donald Kagin of Des Moines, Iowa, then the largest coin dealer in the Midwest, as a purchasing agent. Later he represented Superior Galleries under the Goldbergs, also as a purchasing agent. In 1979, Neil, with his brother Jed, founded First Federal Coin Company, the first East Coast coin company to sell rare coins into IRA, Keogh, and pension plans. From 1983 until 1990, he was the purchasing agent for Asset Services, Inc., the largest coin company serving the financial community. Neil donated his large collection of German and Swiss silver minor coins to the American Numismatic Society (ANS) in 1989. In 1997, he received the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Service Award from ANA President David Ganz. In 2005 and 2006, he was associated again with Superior Galleries of Beverly Hills, this time under the ownership of numismatist Silvano DiGenova.<br /> Neil catalogued the U.S. gold in the 1977 Kagin&#8217;s ANA Coin Auction Sale, the first New York coin auction sale in 1981 of Spink and Sons, England&#8217;s oldest and largest coin dealer, and a coin auction sale by Superior Rare Coin Galleries of Beverly Hills in 2006.<br /> Neil has been published in <i>Barron&#8217;s, Trusts &amp; Estates, The National Law Journal, The Financial Planner, Pensions World,</i> and <i>Executive Jeweler.</i> In 1987, he wrote, with Hans Schulman, <i>The Investor&#8217;s Guide to United States Coins,</i> which sold 40,000 copies and received a Numismatic Literary Guild award for Best Investment Book. In 2007, he wrote the second edition of the book with Silvano DiGenova. Neil has just completed a book on rare coin auctions. <p><b>Ron Guth:</b> Ron Guth is a jack-of-all-trades and master of one &#8212; numismatics. Ron is a certified public accountant (CPA), a licensed auctioneer, and a writer, but the bulk of his time is spent on his true love &#8212; coin collecting and dealing. Ron&#8217;s battle with coin fever began when he was 12 years old, and he&#8217;s never gotten over it. After a decade of collecting, Ron went professional in 1976, when he began working for a local coin shop in Tampa, Florida. In 1978, he partnered with David Goldsmith and purchased the Bay Area Coin Exchange in Tampa. Ron and Dave blasted through the silver boom, and then split up in 1981, when Ron moved to Evansville, Indiana (his wife&#8217;s hometown), where he set up shop on First Avenue. In 1984, Ron formed Mid-American Rare Coin Auctions with Jeff Garrett of Lexington, Kentucky. The company quickly established itself as an innovative leader in the industry and, within the first year, became the fifth largest rare coin auction company in America. In 1988, Ron sold his interest in the company, went back to school to finish his bachelor&#8217;s degree in accounting and finance, and has since become a numismatic consultant and a major dealer in German coins.<br /> In 1984, Ron won the American Numismatic Association&#8217;s Wayte and Olga Raymond and Heath Literary awards.

Berman:</b> Neil S. Berman has been an expert numismatist and professional rare coin dealer since 1968. Coming back to the United States from Israel at the end of 1967, he apprenticed to the world-renowned Dutch numismatist and coin auctioneer Hans M. F. Schulman. He incorporated as Neil S. Berman, Inc., in 1968. In 1974, Neil became an associate of Metropolitan Rare Coin Company of New York. For the next several years, he represented Arthur and Donald Kagin of Des Moines, Iowa, then the largest coin dealer in the Midwest, as a purchasing agent. Later he represented Superior Galleries under the Goldbergs, also as a purchasing agent. In 1979, Neil, with his brother Jed, founded First Federal Coin Company, the first East Coast coin company to sell rare coins into IRA, Keogh, and pension plans. From 1983 until 1990, he was the purchasing agent for Asset Services, Inc., the largest coin company serving the financial community. Neil donated his large collection of German and Swiss silver minor coins to the American Numismatic Society (ANS) in 1989. In 1997, he received the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Service Award from ANA President David Ganz. In 2005 and 2006, he was associated again with Superior Galleries of Beverly Hills, this time under the ownership of numismatist Silvano DiGenova.<br /> Neil catalogued the U.S. gold in the 1977 Kagin&#8217;s ANA Coin Auction Sale, the first New York coin auction sale in 1981 of Spink and Sons, England&#8217;s oldest and largest coin dealer, and a coin auction sale by Superior Rare Coin Galleries of Beverly Hills in 2006.<br /> Neil has been published in <i>Barron&#8217;s, Trusts &amp; Estates, The National Law Journal, The Financial Planner, Pensions World,</i> and <i>Executive Jeweler.</i> In 1987, he wrote, with Hans Schulman, <i>The Investor&#8217;s Guide to United States Coins,</i> which sold 40,000 copies and received a Numismatic Literary Guild award for Best Investment Book. In 2007, he wrote the second edition of the book with Silvano DiGenova. Neil has just completed a book on rare coin auctions. <p><b>Ron Guth:</b> Ron Guth is a jack-of-all-trades and master of one &#8212; numismatics. Ron is a certified public accountant (CPA), a licensed auctioneer, and a writer, but the bulk of his time is spent on his true love &#8212; coin collecting and dealing. Ron&#8217;s battle with coin fever began when he was 12 years old, and he&#8217;s never gotten over it. After a decade of collecting, Ron went professional in 1976, when he began working for a local coin shop in Tampa, Florida. In 1978, he partnered with David Goldsmith and purchased the Bay Area Coin Exchange in Tampa. Ron and Dave blasted through the silver boom, and then split up in 1981, when Ron moved to Evansville, Indiana (his wife&#8217;s hometown), where he set up shop on First Avenue. In 1984, Ron formed Mid-American Rare Coin Auctions with Jeff Garrett of Lexington, Kentucky. The company quickly established itself as an innovative leader in the industry and, within the first year, became the fifth largest rare coin auction company in America. In 1988, Ron sold his interest in the company, went back to school to finish his bachelor&#8217;s degree in accounting and finance, and has since become a numismatic consultant and a major dealer in German coins.<br /> In 1984, Ron won the American Numismatic Association&#8217;s Wayte and Olga Raymond and Heath Literary awards. He has written many coin-related articles and is listed as a contributor to several books, including <i>Walter Breen&#8217;s Encyclopedia of United States Coins,</i> Krause Publications&#8217;s <i>Standard Catalog of German Coins,</i> Roger S.

Berman:</b> Neil S. Berman has been an expert numismatist and professional rare coin dealer since 1968. Coming back to the United States from Israel at the end of 1967, he apprenticed to the world-renowned Dutch numismatist and coin auctioneer Hans M. F. Schulman. He incorporated as Neil S. Berman, Inc., in 1968. In 1974, Neil became an associate of Metropolitan Rare Coin Company of New York. For the next several years, he represented Arthur and Donald Kagin of Des Moines, Iowa, then the largest coin dealer in the Midwest, as a purchasing agent. Later he represented Superior Galleries under the Goldbergs, also as a purchasing agent. In 1979, Neil, with his brother Jed, founded First Federal Coin Company, the first East Coast coin company to sell rare coins into IRA, Keogh, and pension plans. From 1983 until 1990, he was the purchasing agent for Asset Services, Inc., the largest coin company serving the financial community. Neil donated his large collection of German and Swiss silver minor coins to the American Numismatic Society (ANS) in 1989. In 1997, he received the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Service Award from ANA President David Ganz. In 2005 and 2006, he was associated again with Superior Galleries of Beverly Hills, this time under the ownership of numismatist Silvano DiGenova.<br /> Neil catalogued the U.S. gold in the 1977 Kagin&#8217;s ANA Coin Auction Sale, the first New York coin auction sale in 1981 of Spink and Sons, England&#8217;s oldest and largest coin dealer, and a coin auction sale by Superior Rare Coin Galleries of Beverly Hills in 2006.<br /> Neil has been published in <i>Barron&#8217;s, Trusts &amp; Estates, The National Law Journal, The Financial Planner, Pensions World,</i> and <i>Executive Jeweler.</i> In 1987, he wrote, with Hans Schulman, <i>The Investor&#8217;s Guide to United States Coins,</i> which sold 40,000 copies and received a Numismatic Literary Guild award for Best Investment Book. In 2007, he wrote the second edition of the book with Silvano DiGenova. Neil has just completed a book on rare coin auctions. <p><b>Ron Guth:</b> Ron Guth is a jack-of-all-trades and master of one &#8212; numismatics. Ron is a certified public accountant (CPA), a licensed auctioneer, and a writer, but the bulk of his time is spent on his true love &#8212; coin collecting and dealing. Ron&#8217;s battle with coin fever began when he was 12 years old, and he&#8217;s never gotten over it. After a decade of collecting, Ron went professional in 1976, when he began working for a local coin shop in Tampa, Florida. In 1978, he partnered with David Goldsmith and purchased the Bay Area Coin Exchange in Tampa. Ron and Dave blasted through the silver boom, and then split up in 1981, when Ron moved to Evansville, Indiana (his wife&#8217;s hometown), where he set up shop on First Avenue. In 1984, Ron formed Mid-American Rare Coin Auctions with Jeff Garrett of Lexington, Kentucky. The company quickly established itself as an innovative leader in the industry and, within the first year, became the fifth largest rare coin auction company in America. In 1988, Ron sold his interest in the company, went back to school to finish his bachelor&#8217;s degree in accounting and finance, and has since become a numismatic consultant and a major dealer in German coins.<br /> In 1984, Ron won the American Numismatic Association&#8217;s Wayte and Olga Raymond and Heath Literary awards. He has written many coin-related articles and is listed as a contributor to several books, including <i>Walter Breen&#8217;s Encyclopedia of United States Coins,</i> Krause Publications&#8217;s <i>Standard Catalog of German Coins,</i> Roger S. Cohen&#8217;s <i>American Half Cents, Walter Breen&#8217;s Encyclopedia of United States Half Cents,</i> and others. Ron has served as a numismatic consultant for many rare-coin companies, including major firms such as the Professional Coin Grading Services, Heritage Numismatic&#160;Auctions, and Early American History Auctions.</p>","hasArticle":false,"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/authors/10424"}}],"primaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":33812,"title":"Coin Collecting","slug":"coin-collecting","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33812"}},"secondaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":0,"title":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"tertiaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":0,"title":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"trendingArticles":null,"inThisArticle":[],"relatedArticles":{"fromBook":[{"articleId":209132,"title":"Coin Collecting For Dummies Cheat Sheet","slug":"coin-collecting-for-dummies-cheat-sheet","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/209132"}},{"articleId":200543,"title":"Deciding Which Coins to Collect","slug":"deciding-what-coins-to-collect","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/200543"}},{"articleId":200039,"title":"Getting Excited about Collecting U.S. Coins","slug":"getting-excited-about-collecting-u-s-coins","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/200039"}},{"articleId":199991,"title":"Getting Your Kids Involved in Coin Collecting","slug":"getting-your-kids-involved-in-coin-collecting","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/199991"}},{"articleId":199520,"title":"Collecting Various Types of Coins","slug":"collecting-various-types-of-coins","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/199520"}}],"fromCategory":[{"articleId":209132,"title":"Coin Collecting For Dummies Cheat Sheet","slug":"coin-collecting-for-dummies-cheat-sheet","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/209132"}},{"articleId":200543,"title":"Deciding Which Coins to Collect","slug":"deciding-what-coins-to-collect","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/200543"}},{"articleId":200039,"title":"Getting Excited about Collecting U.S. Coins","slug":"getting-excited-about-collecting-u-s-coins","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/200039"}},{"articleId":199991,"title":"Getting Your Kids Involved in Coin Collecting","slug":"getting-your-kids-involved-in-coin-collecting","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/199991"}},{"articleId":199520,"title":"Collecting Various Types of Coins","slug":"collecting-various-types-of-coins","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/199520"}}]},"hasRelatedBookFromSearch":false,"relatedBook":{"bookId":282092,"slug":"coin-collecting-for-dummies","isbn":"9781119862673","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"amazon":{"default":"//www.amazon.com/gp/product/1119862671/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","ca":"//www.amazon.ca/gp/product/1119862671/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","indigo_ca":"//www.tkqlhce.com/click-9208661-13710633?url=//www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/product/1119862671-item.html&cjsku=978111945484","gb":"//www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1119862671/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","de":"//www.amazon.de/gp/product/1119862671/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20"},"image":{"src":"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/9781119862673-203x255.jpg","width":203,"height":255},"title":"Coin Collecting For Dummies","testBankPinActivationLink":"","bookOutOfPrint":true,"authorsInfo":"<p><b> <b data-author-id=\"10423\">Neil S.

These are all but gone, but recent developments have brought all kinds of people back to coin collecting, and budding numismatists are searching their spare change for treasure. Here are some reasons people are getting excited about coin collecting again.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >50 State Quarters</h2>\r\nIn 1999, the U.S. Mint began the 50 State Quarters program, a series of 50 special quarter dollars, each representing an individual state and released in the order in which the states entered the Union. The new coins share a common <i>obverse</i> (coin front); the <i>reverses</i> (coin backs) are chosen from designs submitted by each state. Five new quarters are issued each year. The U.S. Treasury reports that over 100 million Americans are collecting the state quarters, many of them completely new to collecting.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Sacagawea dollar</h2>\r\nIn what was perhaps the biggest and most expensive advertising campaign ever seen for a new coin, the U.S. Mint introduced a new $1 coin in 2000. The new dollar featured the Native American guide Sacagawea (and her infant son) on the front, and an eagle on the back. To make the coin distinctive, the edge was left flat and plain, and the entire coin was struck from a gold-colored alloy. In a stroke of genius, the U.S. Mint contracted with Wal-Mart stores throughout the country to distribute the new coins in limited quantities. Banks received very few of the coins, creating the false impression that the new coins were rare. In fact, billions of the Sacagawea dollars have been produced and they will never be rare.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >New commemorative issues</h2>\r\nIn 1982, the U.S. Mint began tentatively issuing commemorative coins again. Today, the U.S. Mint has hit its stride, issuing one or more commemorative coins each year in a variety of metals, set combinations, and price levels. New commemorative coins are available in gold, silver, and copper-nickel on subjects that appeal to a broad audience. Each new issue creates excitement among existing collectors and brings new collectors into the hobby.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Error coins</h2>\r\nThe U.S. Mint is far from perfect. However, as far as numismatics goes, that's a good thing. Few industries have product lines in which the rejected items are more valuable than the perfect ones. In 2000, a number of spectacular error coins stunned the numismatic world. One such error was a coin with the front of a 50 State Quarter and the back of a Sacagawea dollar — the first U.S. coin ever to bear two denominations. Because the two dies differ in diameter, no one believed it was even possible for such an error to exist; in fact, some professionals believe these error coins were made deliberately. The error received tremendous publicity in the national media, causing millions of non-collectors to begin examining their change.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab5\" >Wheaties</h2>\r\nOccasionally, a <i>Wheatie</i> (the Lincoln cent with wheat ears on the back, struck prior to 1959) still shows up in your pocket. As the years go by, they will become rarer.","description":"Forty years ago, your spare change might yield all kinds of things: Indian-head cents, buffalo nickels, Mercury dimes, Standing Liberty quarters, Walking Liberty half dollars, and plenty of the more modern silver coins that had been discontinued a few years earlier.

Berman:</b> Neil S. Berman has been an expert numismatist and professional rare coin dealer since 1968. Coming back to the United States from Israel at the end of 1967, he apprenticed to the world-renowned Dutch numismatist and coin auctioneer Hans M. F. Schulman. He incorporated as Neil S. Berman, Inc., in 1968. In 1974, Neil became an associate of Metropolitan Rare Coin Company of New York. For the next several years, he represented Arthur and Donald Kagin of Des Moines, Iowa, then the largest coin dealer in the Midwest, as a purchasing agent. Later he represented Superior Galleries under the Goldbergs, also as a purchasing agent. In 1979, Neil, with his brother Jed, founded First Federal Coin Company, the first East Coast coin company to sell rare coins into IRA, Keogh, and pension plans. From 1983 until 1990, he was the purchasing agent for Asset Services, Inc., the largest coin company serving the financial community. Neil donated his large collection of German and Swiss silver minor coins to the American Numismatic Society (ANS) in 1989. In 1997, he received the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Service Award from ANA President David Ganz. In 2005 and 2006, he was associated again with Superior Galleries of Beverly Hills, this time under the ownership of numismatist Silvano DiGenova.<br /> Neil catalogued the U.S. gold in the 1977 Kagin&#8217;s ANA Coin Auction Sale, the first New York coin auction sale in 1981 of Spink and Sons, England&#8217;s oldest and largest coin dealer, and a coin auction sale by Superior Rare Coin Galleries of Beverly Hills in 2006.<br /> Neil has been published in <i>Barron&#8217;s, Trusts &amp; Estates, The National Law Journal, The Financial Planner, Pensions World,</i> and <i>Executive Jeweler.</i> In 1987, he wrote, with Hans Schulman, <i>The Investor&#8217;s Guide to United States Coins,</i> which sold 40,000 copies and received a Numismatic Literary Guild award for Best Investment Book. In 2007, he wrote the second edition of the book with Silvano DiGenova.

Ron is a certified public accountant (CPA), a licensed auctioneer, and a writer, but the bulk of his time is spent on his true love &#8212; coin collecting and dealing. Ron&#8217;s battle with coin fever began when he was 12 years old, and he&#8217;s never gotten over it. After a decade of collecting, Ron went professional in 1976, when he began working for a local coin shop in Tampa, Florida. In 1978, he partnered with David Goldsmith and purchased the Bay Area Coin Exchange in Tampa. Ron and Dave blasted through the silver boom, and then split up in 1981, when Ron moved to Evansville, Indiana (his wife&#8217;s hometown), where he set up shop on First Avenue. In 1984, Ron formed Mid-American Rare Coin Auctions with Jeff Garrett of Lexington, Kentucky. The company quickly established itself as an innovative leader in the industry and, within the first year, became the fifth largest rare coin auction company in America. In 1988, Ron sold his interest in the company, went back to school to finish his bachelor&#8217;s degree in accounting and finance, and has since become a numismatic consultant and a major dealer in German coins.<br /> In 1984, Ron won the American Numismatic Association&#8217;s Wayte and Olga Raymond and Heath Literary awards. He has written many coin-related articles and is listed as a contributor to several books, including <i>Walter Breen&#8217;s Encyclopedia of United States Coins,</i> Krause Publications&#8217;s <i>Standard Catalog of German Coins,</i> Roger S. Cohen&#8217;s <i>American Half Cents, Walter Breen&#8217;s Encyclopedia of United States Half Cents,</i> and others.

Berman:</b> Neil S. Berman has been an expert numismatist and professional rare coin dealer since 1968. Coming back to the United States from Israel at the end of 1967, he apprenticed to the world-renowned Dutch numismatist and coin auctioneer Hans M. F. Schulman. He incorporated as Neil S. Berman, Inc., in 1968. In 1974, Neil became an associate of Metropolitan Rare Coin Company of New York. For the next several years, he represented Arthur and Donald Kagin of Des Moines, Iowa, then the largest coin dealer in the Midwest, as a purchasing agent. Later he represented Superior Galleries under the Goldbergs, also as a purchasing agent. In 1979, Neil, with his brother Jed, founded First Federal Coin Company, the first East Coast coin company to sell rare coins into IRA, Keogh, and pension plans. From 1983 until 1990, he was the purchasing agent for Asset Services, Inc., the largest coin company serving the financial community. Neil donated his large collection of German and Swiss silver minor coins to the American Numismatic Society (ANS) in 1989. In 1997, he received the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Service Award from ANA President David Ganz. In 2005 and 2006, he was associated again with Superior Galleries of Beverly Hills, this time under the ownership of numismatist Silvano DiGenova.<br /> Neil catalogued the U.S. gold in the 1977 Kagin&#8217;s ANA Coin Auction Sale, the first New York coin auction sale in 1981 of Spink and Sons, England&#8217;s oldest and largest coin dealer, and a coin auction sale by Superior Rare Coin Galleries of Beverly Hills in 2006.<br /> Neil has been published in <i>Barron&#8217;s, Trusts &amp; Estates, The National Law Journal, The Financial Planner, Pensions World,</i> and <i>Executive Jeweler.</i> In 1987, he wrote, with Hans Schulman, <i>The Investor&#8217;s Guide to United States Coins,</i> which sold 40,000 copies and received a Numismatic Literary Guild award for Best Investment Book. In 2007, he wrote the second edition of the book with Silvano DiGenova. Neil has just completed a book on rare coin auctions. <p><b>Ron Guth:</b> Ron Guth is a jack-of-all-trades and master of one &#8212; numismatics. Ron is a certified public accountant (CPA), a licensed auctioneer, and a writer, but the bulk of his time is spent on his true love &#8212; coin collecting and dealing. Ron&#8217;s battle with coin fever began when he was 12 years old, and he&#8217;s never gotten over it. After a decade of collecting, Ron went professional in 1976, when he began working for a local coin shop in Tampa, Florida. In 1978, he partnered with David Goldsmith and purchased the Bay Area Coin Exchange in Tampa. Ron and Dave blasted through the silver boom, and then split up in 1981, when Ron moved to Evansville, Indiana (his wife&#8217;s hometown), where he set up shop on First Avenue. In 1984, Ron formed Mid-American Rare Coin Auctions with Jeff Garrett of Lexington, Kentucky. The company quickly established itself as an innovative leader in the industry and, within the first year, became the fifth largest rare coin auction company in America. In 1988, Ron sold his interest in the company, went back to school to finish his bachelor&#8217;s degree in accounting and finance, and has since become a numismatic consultant and a major dealer in German coins.<br /> In 1984, Ron won the American Numismatic Association&#8217;s Wayte and Olga Raymond and Heath Literary awards. He has written many coin-related articles and is listed as a contributor to several books, including <i>Walter Breen&#8217;s Encyclopedia of United States Coins,</i> Krause Publications&#8217;s <i>Standard Catalog of German Coins,</i> Roger S. Cohen&#8217;s <i>American Half Cents, Walter Breen&#8217;s Encyclopedia of United States Half Cents,</i> and others. Ron has served as a numismatic consultant for many rare-coin companies, including major firms such as the Professional Coin Grading Services, Heritage Numismatic&#160;Auctions, and Early American History Auctions.</p>","hasArticle":false,"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/authors/10424"}}],"primaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":33812,"title":"Coin Collecting","slug":"coin-collecting","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33812"}},"secondaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":0,"title":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"tertiaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":0,"title":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"trendingArticles":null,"inThisArticle":[],"relatedArticles":{"fromBook":[{"articleId":209132,"title":"Coin Collecting For Dummies Cheat Sheet","slug":"coin-collecting-for-dummies-cheat-sheet","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/209132"}},{"articleId":200543,"title":"Deciding Which Coins to Collect","slug":"deciding-what-coins-to-collect","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/200543"}},{"articleId":200039,"title":"Getting Excited about Collecting U.S. Coins","slug":"getting-excited-about-collecting-u-s-coins","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/200039"}},{"articleId":199991,"title":"Getting Your Kids Involved in Coin Collecting","slug":"getting-your-kids-involved-in-coin-collecting","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/199991"}},{"articleId":199520,"title":"Collecting Various Types of Coins","slug":"collecting-various-types-of-coins","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/199520"}}],"fromCategory":[{"articleId":209132,"title":"Coin Collecting For Dummies Cheat Sheet","slug":"coin-collecting-for-dummies-cheat-sheet","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/209132"}},{"articleId":200543,"title":"Deciding Which Coins to Collect","slug":"deciding-what-coins-to-collect","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/200543"}},{"articleId":200039,"title":"Getting Excited about Collecting U.S. Coins","slug":"getting-excited-about-collecting-u-s-coins","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/200039"}},{"articleId":199991,"title":"Getting Your Kids Involved in Coin Collecting","slug":"getting-your-kids-involved-in-coin-collecting","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/199991"}},{"articleId":199520,"title":"Collecting Various Types of Coins","slug":"collecting-various-types-of-coins","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/199520"}}]},"hasRelatedBookFromSearch":false,"relatedBook":{"bookId":282092,"slug":"coin-collecting-for-dummies","isbn":"9781119862673","categoryList":["home-auto-hobbies","antiques-collectibles","coin-collecting"],"amazon":{"default":"//www.amazon.com/gp/product/1119862671/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","ca":"//www.amazon.ca/gp/product/1119862671/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","indigo_ca":"//www.tkqlhce.com/click-9208661-13710633?url=//www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/product/1119862671-item.html&cjsku=978111945484","gb":"//www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1119862671/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","de":"//www.amazon.de/gp/product/1119862671/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20"},"image":{"src":"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/9781119862673-203x255.jpg","width":203,"height":255},"title":"Coin Collecting For Dummies","testBankPinActivationLink":"","bookOutOfPrint":true,"authorsInfo":"<p><b> <b data-author-id=\"10423\">Neil S.
