I'll give you $3.50 for the VDB.


I think this is really starting to become a true LOWBALL coin situation. And I'll go $5 on this one.

This type of attitude is not warranted, you asked a question and the answers were given, I don't know what else you could possibly want besides what you have already been given.


Hey Bryan... I was wanting an answer in coin terms since we are on a coin forum.....how novel an idea? I received several "generic" answers about lowball that didn't answer my question about the term in numismatic terminology. My initial question derived from reading Bowers' guide to Morgans in which he hasn't explained "lowball" as of yet (about half way through the book).

By the time your reply came I had already received my answer.

Will you dismount from your high horse now?

Bluemule, I don't care what you were expecting, it doesn't give you the right to act like a jerk. This is not your only post with this tone. The Staff has received several complaints about your attitude.

So here's the deal. Shape up or I'll ship you out. My horse is a little higher than Bryan's and I'm not getting off anytime soon.

believe me I am in the trenches with everyone else on the forum and march right beside them so no horse needed. You got an answer about what "lowball" in coin terms meant before you made you remark and I quote

A second use of the term is to describe a heavily worn coin that has a very low technical grade ..... say a P01 ... this is known as a 'lowball' coin.

Some folks seek these out and try to collect a series of lowest-graded (lowball) coins.

Not sure how you see that as generic, it is what everyone means when they say lowball and they are talking about a coin, so even though the question was "generic" the answers were specific in both cases before you made the ramark I quoted and had a problem with

Lowball is not an official numismatic term anyways. It is just a term that fits certain situations outside of and within the Coin World.
It's like saying where is the term "Ripped off" in the glossary of numismatic terms.
Sort of the same thing.
I suppose if after many years the term Lowball becomes the most accepted and used word for a type of transaction, or a condition of a certified low grade coin, then maybe whomever makes up a glossary of numismatic terms, might just include it for our information.

I appreciate those who moderate this forum, mainly because I assume they do not do this for pay. Volunteerism is something that I really do appreciate, whther on this forum or at the local nursing home. But when I referred to lowball, more thorughly, a lowball registry in numismatic terms, does that mean a collection of low grade highly collactaible coins?

I have seen that term many times but no explanation of it.

Men, I apologize for my anger but when you spend almost all of your free time trying to understand everything that you are behind on it becomes frustrating. Many of the acronyms that are mentioned on here are not in the glossary. However, with some diligence, I can figure them out usually.

Believe it or not brian and other moderators, I really do appreciate you guys, no matter how abrasive I may seem. You guys have taught me alot so far.
