I don't know about SAR, but the distribution on MT to LQI was 1 for 1.
I have a couple of rare coins. I have an 1845 seated quarter that is PCGS 65, finest known. And I have two 1836 bust quarters, MS 64. For the reduced size I think it is the toughest date. PCGS has graded 3 in 64, and 1 in 65 and I have 2 of them.
I like those quarters, I bet their nice. Is there a way to find out how many old coins made it to the present?
Silver is always nice but theres something about American Gold that always gets peoples attention. Have you seen the prices for the double eagles that were on that side wheeler that went down off the Carolina's in the 1850's? I have one 2 1/2 Indian Head, nice grade but a hundred bucks at best and one 5 dollar Liberty same as the first. I'd love to keep trading up till I get a gold coin in the 100k range. Then I go to a coin show and see dealers with half a million in inventory and I think "stick with stocks."
How long did MT pay that dividend? As the price went down and the dividend stayed the same yahoo had an outrageous number on it. It couldn't have been paying that, could it! So the thing to do would have been to buy it right before it became LQI. I'm happy with the little I have. La Quinta was good to me in El Paso, TX. I never forgot their kindness to a tired traveler.
