I really enjoy watching the Coin Vault program on shopathome tv. But it hasn't been on this week. Also, I don't see coins at their web site any longer.

Does anyone know what happened to Coin Vault?

Thanks

Honest Rob (aka) Robert Chambers and his sidekick Paul (wonderboy) Hollis packed up their goodies and went home. Shop at home T.V. went belly up. You can read about it here.

Too bad I'll miss all the good late night entertainment.

Maybe they went to sell cars...at least alot of people have been saved by not geting sucked in.

I don't sound too sarcastic do I ?

Well I wanna tell YA, that ah, S@H was where I first bought some proof sets many many years ago when prices were reasonable--For the last couple of years tho, prices on Rob's & wonderboy's CV have rather been insulting--Lately I noticed that all they were selling was ASE, paper & other super-overpriced coinage-(Perhaps they were trying to keep scripps from closing them down). I found them to be somewhat entertaining except for lately, whereas they became extremely boring and the competition was eating them up alive on prices--Do not fret, there are still 3-4 other coin shows on tv--coin country seems to be the only one that occasionally have "decent" prices for stuff &/or will "negotiate, or take bids on stuff"--You also have that other dude with "Laura", and of course the idiot that pushes the ICG holders and the plated junk on america's store & hsn--

Well neither of these guys will be out of a job very long. There are at least three or four slabbing companies out there that will snap them up in a heart beat. Can't let all those MS70's go down the drain, now can we?

Yeah, like a penny would be worth $50,000 you would have to be dumb to pay that much. They didnt even use PCGS Or NGC it was some cheap slabbing company.

Accually if you were to buy a 1909-S VDB RED in MS67 grade you would have to spend $86500.
A penny that sold on eBay
1877 Indian Head cent CERTIFIED MS65 RED PQ RARE BEAUTY
INCREDIBLE STRIKE, FANTASTIC LUSTER, NO DISTRACTIONS
$13,498.00
so there are a few penny out there that would cost 50,000.00 to get Also Coin vault sold alot of coins slabbed by NGC I think most of there slabbed coins were.

You betcha djluster! Those cents in any grade are rare and valuable Cool. The little 1877 Indian that I was looking at in below Good started at $400. The 1909 Indian is just as pricey in the higher grades. The list goes on and they will continue to climb after 2009 I'm sure. Folks are just starting to hoard the pre-1982 cents. We'll see what the future brings for the little copper bothersome pennies?

I was flipping throw my cable when I came upon their show, and just had to laugh. They were selling 2006 Silver Proof sets for "only" $49.99. And whats more, the original price was $79.99. Ha, you can get the sets from the mint for around $38.

Thanks to those who responded. I caught a bit of their blow-out marathon on shop@home this weekend. It is always fun watching punch-drunk short-timers say whatever comes to mind.

I really enjoyed watching CoinVault and I'm gonna miss it. I suspect that we'll see Chambers on another cable show eventually. Some have recommended Coin Country, but I haven't located it yet on Comcast cable.
