To Order Call

Mid December issue . 2008,



Merry Christmas and a Happy Prosperous, healthy 2009.

As we all know, we are faced with difficult and changing times. Our Economy is in turmoil. The Government is handing out Billions of our tax dollars, like water over the falls. Hopefully they are doing the right thing, only time will tell the story. Personally, I don’t have much faith in our elected officials doing the right thing.

As so many investors are finding out, the Stock Market is nothing more than a big, big gamble. I would compare it to going to the world's largest Casino, and we all know what the odds are when we go to a casino, “Not Very Good”.

Now if you look seriously at the Rarities index, you’ll wonder why you haven’t checked this out before! I’m surely not suggesting that you should put all your money in True Rare coins, but as far as I’m concerned it is one of the absolute safest places to put your money. There is a definite proven track record here for over 48 years and going further back if you do the research.

First, you must make sure and perform Due Diligence. Make sure you know who your doing business with and the coins your buying are worthy of the price. Keep in mind, there are no Bargains out there. “Quality, Rarity, Eye appeal" are what it's all about. If a dealer wants to shove something down your throat run as fast as you can. A dealer should take the time to explain and answer all you questions.

I truly believe that if you take your time and buy the correct coins, in the end you will do extremely well. You will not wind up with a fraction of your investment. Keep in mind these are strictly my opinions. Please feel free to call or email with any questions or concerns.


Have a Wonderful Holiday Season!
