Other things to look for when buying is if a coin was available from a private roller, or from a vended/attended locations.
We’re talking about found at urist attractions similar to zoos, aquariums, museums, and amusement parks.
You can really get a great deal sometimes on ebay by picking up rare coins for low rates, if not.
Now, a vended style machine is probably what your use to, the ol’ two quarter and a penny. Although, if so, you can purchase the coin from that roller probably for much less, It is important to know if a roller is an active roller. Private rollers usually design and roll their elongateds for collectors. Attended machine coins are individuals that have their own machines, these can often be seen at coin shows, fairs and similar temporary events. Known so that’s similar to the private catagory. There usually is a person operating the machine. Now look, a fair Typical machine that was not a vended style machine going to be priced in the $ 1500 to $ 3500 price range.
Find somebody that already is familiar with a few machines before sinking money into one, Therefore if the price doesn’t scare you off.
Vended machines can easily fetch between $ 2000 – $ 5,I’ve seen far more.
Its an expensive venture. I know many people that buy machines and are unable to find parts for them, and find that to have new parts machined cost as much if not more than what they originally paid for the entire machine. Fact, mostly there’re lots of variables to consider since parts are not ‘off the shelf”. Now you sure should like to own your machine. Elongated collecting is around for some amount of time. I will highly suggest researching the Colombian Expo coins before purchasing them online!!!! And so it’s commonly believed that the first publicly offered coins were at the Columbian Expo in it’s rumored that a private roller created coinslong before these were offered.
They migh not be as old as you believe.
Please note, the original expo coins did not have a dot border!
Another set of these coins were also introduced in the 60’s. You can pick up a re print of the Yesterdays Elongateds for a small fee from the elongated collectors group. I’d suggest buying this book before you purchase any high end coins.
Look, there’re many modern variations rolled in current times. Especially a lot of the private problems from old rollers. Considering the above said. Whenever researching and are serious about the older coins, now this book is all about as much as a brand new college text!!!well worth the price if you enjoy reading. Nonetheless, its a huge book thats filled with all kinds of stuff on elongated coins. Of course another great source of infomation on Elongated Coins is the Encyclopedia of Modern Elongateds by Rosato. So cool thing about private rollers and engravers is that you can get all kinds of random coins rolled through a machine, sometimes entire sets of coins. Nothing cooler than to have penny, nickels, dimes, quarters and similar coins rolled on similar die in your collection.
