An interesting article by Batman from LiveBusinessChat. The different sides of coin market strategy http://www.livebusinesschat.com/smf/index.php?topic=4604.0 "Speaking of value, I will just echo Jim's comments. There is "significant" value available today. You just have to know where to look. Jim mentioned the 1996 proof panda. I won't tell you exactly what I like or what I am buying, but I will say that many high graded rare coins are selling in the US at or below their ungraded value in China. For me, this is a tremendous opportunity. Do your homework and you will be rewarded."
