I was looking at a really cool coin and then realized I was in the "Lost Dutchman Rare Coins" store on ebay.
Matt, you have some nice listings at really good prices !
I thought I would just share my humbling experience

Other sets I am working on include Lincoln Cents 1941-58 in BU and Proof condition.
And the one that is really fun, a toned 1960 proof set. Just gotta grab up a dime and a quarter.

At 20.6 mm, the koala is slightly larger than a US cent (19.05mm) and thicker at 2mm than the cent (1.55mm)
The 1/10 oz koalas are just pure beauty too.
Though I got mine in NGC MS70 for a steal, they sell for about $14 on Apmex raw in their card from the mint.
Speaking towards the ATB quarters, I am in the boat with Matt. So much better than the State quarters, but not striking my collecting fancy completely. I took a look at the Mint News Blog and was rather impressed by the design candidates. The Great Smoky Mountains being my favorite!
Talking of Standing quarters, I recently gave this site a read on picking out dateless 1916 SLQs and anybody interested in learning how to do it, this will be your best read for doing so.

I just wanted to stop by and say that I love the show. I've been listening to it on my 1.25hr commute to work almost daily. I feel like I have learned so much, yet barely scratched the surface of what I need to know. I look forward to the forum and more shows!

Also look for an article about The Coin Show in the May issue of The Numismatist magazine.

Palladium is mined mostly in Russia and South Africa. It has a global production of about 220 tons per year, compared to 130 for platinum and 2500 for gold. Palladium is an essential material in catalytic converters in cars, where it filters out toxic gasses. About half of palladium mined is used to produce them.
Palladium is a popular investment metal. It is made into coins and bars.
In 2001, palladium hit a peak price during a short dip in its production. The Ford Motor Company stocked large amounts of the metal near it's high of $1100/oz in case production kept going down. Instead, production resumed as normal and Ford lost a billion dollars- talk about a bad investment! The value of palladium has been steadily rising, along with most precious metals.

Here's a couple of examples. I bought the 1820 coin on eBay recently. It caught my interest because it was cheap and old. Cheap as chips. Someone obviously wore it as jewellery, since the hole appears to have been drilled a long time ago with pretty basic tools, the coin might even have gone to war with someone. I'm thinking of using it in a beading project, bet that makes you all cringe! I figure the damage is already done.
The other coin is a 1910 Jamaican half penny I had on hand which I've had for ages.
