2025 Official Red Book

Hand Carved Wooden 4-String Instrument

1907 Liberty Head Gold Eagle Coin

1924 Gold Double Eagle Coin

The May 2024 Greater Atlanta Coin Show enjoyed guests visiting a bourse filled with  coins, currency, bullion and collectibles in dealers' showcases.

The weather provided a day filled with pretty sunshine intermixed with periods of rain with temperatures floating from the upper 70s to the low 80s.

It was a great day to visit a coin show.

As always, we appreciate our visitors, our dealers, our security team and the hotel's staff. Everyone contributes in making the show a fun and interesting place to spend a few hours each month. Thank you.

With the fluctuation in the metals' market, people at the show continue to look for silver and gold items. Some want coins while others want bullion. You can find both at the show.
A few visitors brought inherited items for an appraisal and to learn about their value and potential long term worth. Others brought items to sell.

One gentleman came looking specifically for seated dollars to add to his collection.

The coin show provides a learning experience for those interested in the hobby, those that inherited items, and those with experience and wanted to expand into other areas.

All of you are welcome, whether just curious or wanting to learn or experienced. Each of you can enjoy the items on display.

Now, let's take a look at just a few items seen on the bourse.
2025 Official Red Book
It's that time of year. The new 2025 Official Red Books are now available.

The 2025 book is the 78th Edition of the numismatic resource.

The Official Red Book provides information about coins from the pre-colonial days to the modern era.

The book also provides insights into the grading components for each type of coin along with relative pricing.

Actual coin prices vary with the markets and the demands of the people interested in the coins.

The Official Red Book is an excellent beginner's guide to coin collecting and also a good resource to assist the experienced numismatist.
Hand carved wooden 4-string instrument bird shape
Our next example is not a coin, but our dealers also bring odd and interesting collectibles to pique the interest of our visitors.

This item appears to be a hand carved wooden four-string instrument.

It looks to be in the shape of a bird in flight, however some think it may symbolize a Viking ship.

With the "man" on one end, the Viking ship idea has merit.

Though its age is unknown, some speculate it is from the late 19th century.

This hand carved instrument would make an interesting conversation piece.
1907 Liberty Head Gold Eagle Coin obverse
1907 Liberty Head Gold Eagle Coin reverse
This coin is one of the Liberty Head Gold Eagle or Ten-Dollar coins.

The US Mint discontinued production of the ten-dollar gold eagle coins in 1804 but began striking them again in 1838.

For these new coins, the weight and diameter were both reduced and new obverse and reverse designs employed.

Another change included the addition of TEN D. recognizing the denomination of the coin showed under the eagle on the reverse.
In 1866, the design added the motto, IN GOD WE TRUST, on a waving banner above the eagle.

The Liberty Head design by Christian Gobrecht continued with the last of the coins produced in 1907.

Our specimen was one of just over 1.2 million of the coins struck in Philadelphia in 1907.

Today, PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) estimates 37,500 of these 1907 Gold Eagles exist.

Though not graded, this coin is a nice representation of the Liberty Head Gold Eagles of over 115 years ago.
1924 Gold Double Eagle Coin obverse
1924 Gold Double Eagle Coin reverse
Though it looks somewhat like the modern American Gold Eagle, this coin is a 1924 Gold Double Eagle Coin equating to twenty dollars at the time.

The US Mint introduced this design by Augustus St. Gaudens in 1907 and continued with the last year of 1933 with a few years during World War I when the coin was not struck.

The Philadelphia Mint produced our example as one of over 4.3 million coins.

Today, PCGS estimates over 1.9 million of the 1924 gold double eagle coins still exist.

From PCGS CoinFacts:
"The 1924 is the most common issue of the Saint-Gaudens series. In fact, it is by far the most common issue of the four 20th-century gold series.

"It is not surprising that the 1924 varies more widely than most issues in terms of luster, strike, color, etc.

"However, it is possible to say that the typical 1924 is very sharply struck and fully frosty with very good to excellent luster.

"The color is usually a light to medium orange gold, but there are also very coppery gold ones and light to medium yellow gold ones."

This specimen is not officially graded, however this 1924 specimen illustrates a nice orange gold double eagle coin from 100 years ago.
