In list #183 I advised LBC readers to watch ebay auctions ending soonest, and to pay attention to ebay newly listed cheap auctions during the Western holidays of Christmas Eve (24th) and Christmas Day (25th), because it's possible to find items selling for below market value when everyone else is not paying attention. Although some auctions sold for a small bit less than market value, there were not as many cheap sales as I expected. Most coins sold for fair market values, and some sold for a... Read more

LBC user pandamonium informed us about a post at the forum. Some of the screenshots in the post are from a post in the currently active MCC LIST #183, and I'm dismayed that it appears I'm being accused of something once again by members of that forum. This's a very vague accusation...again...of some kind of unclear "deceptive" malice due to the use of ebay affiliate links on LBC (this site) and the Coin Compendium (CC).

I normally invest in rare modern Chinese coins with very high numismatic (collector) values - values that are so high that it makes their bullion metal value totally irrelevant. But, sometimes, the big score is in the bullion. This is why it pays to follow what's happening, especially on holidays when no one else is watching:

badon, you are behind on pagodas, especially brass pagodas. Please go to the CCF pagoda thread and catch up with the latest info.

Yes, I've been banned from that forum for so long that I have no idea what's going on over there. I don't think anyone ever knew exactly why I was banned. It was something about the forum owner's customers harassing me, and instead of banning his customers, he banned me. Pr...

In an effort to help out our small business members, any ebay seller listing that links to any page at will be automatically listed here on the front page of this website (only a few at a time, sorted by time remaining). The name "Live Business Chat" must be somewhere in the auction, preferably as part of the displayed link. To make it easy, just put the following line anywhere in your ebay listing:

<a href="">Live Business Chat</a>

You can use that same line to link to us from any other website, also.
