    [–] [Contest] to cheer me up Energy_Turtle 1 points ago in Silverbugs

    I'm just gonna ride these coattails and support /u/kettti.

    People overlook buyer feedback but I think it's important. If someone is buying them they have money, other users have had contact with them, and they are more likely to be a serious member of the community. I never immediately dismiss someone as an unreliable seller if all they have is buyer feedback.

    Just gotta sell one.

    [–] Small gold peso coins' premiums question Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in Silverbugs

    A safer choice for sure. Sorry to be a debbie-downer about the small Mexican gold. They really are cool.

    [–] Small gold peso coins' premiums question Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in Silverbugs

    Depends on the seller. A good one is probably going to be fine. But still, how did they verify it? Did they just buy it from a scrub for spot and are flipping it on ebay as fast as possible? I've seen obvious fake coins sold by sellers with 99.9+% positive feedback. Aside from a trusted coin shop or an individual I know is educated on the coins, I don't even consider these. I do not like buying coins I cannot confidently verify and these fit that mold. They are cool coins but just not worth the risk to me. I always wonder when I see them in my collection and it just makes me enjoy them less. When I was really into them I had quite a few that I know were real and even those varied in sharpness of detail. If I buy a mushy looking one on ebay, I just can't tell if it's a bad strike or a fake. They just aren't big enough or consistent enough for me to tell, and I'm not equipped to measure them.

    There are obviously people out there that are better than me with these. However, I consider myself pretty good at spotting fakes and not being able to determine these makes me skeptical of any of them.

    [–] DEAR NIANTIC - ideas, suggestions, and complaints for the devs Energy_Turtle 1 points ago in pokemongo

    What part is going backwards besides the tracker which didn't work well to begin with?

    [–] Small gold peso coins' premiums question Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in Silverbugs

    Depends on the price just like anywhere else. Ebay bucks can also make them more appealing. I avoid these on eBay because I find them hard to verify as real. They're tiny so the details aren't too crisp to begin with, they are hard to measure weight/mass accurately with the tools I have, and I don't want to damage them to test them. I stick to more trusted sources but avoid them in general. I got really into them for a while but having tons of these just wasn't as cool as I thought it would be. Too small and too much money tied up in difficult to regain premium for what they are.

    [–] My roommate made coasters of pics we took of him blacked out Energy_Turtle 24 points ago in drunk

    You start in the party/club but they throw you out for being too drunk or doing some dumb shit. You can't find your crew because you lost them in the party/club and can't operate a phone to call for a ride. Then you sit down on the curb because fuck walking when you're that drunk (and possibly lost). Before you know it.

    [–] Palladium Eagle Pics Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in coins

    Reverse is a Walker knockoff but it's great. My favorite eagle design.

    [–] Trying to source a 1916 silver dollar Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in Silverbugs

    Can I third this? These are expensive but a straight graded one with eye appeal even in lower/middle grades would be a seriously awesome gift. It's a US coin with massive name recognition and desirability. Basically an "affordable" icon.

    [–] Pretty cool zlots I couldn't help getting Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in Silverbugs

    I love this coin. I bought one as a gift and was very tempted to keep it. Just a great image.

    [–] ALBUM - So many great new releases lately Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in Silverbugs

    I can't stand the series but that George Rogers Clark design is pretty cool.

    [–] Hey, I am back. Thanks to all! Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in Silverbugs

    Glad you're alright and congrats on beating cancer. Cancer is a real son of a bitch. You deserve to treat yourself!

    [–] How many of you wish you just invested in bitcoin like i told you to 3 years ago. Energy_Turtle 11 points ago in Silverbugs

    Didn't you rip a bunch of people off here? And now you're back to lie about your sobriety and wealth? Go fuck yourself.

    [–] WTS - Barber Halves and JM bars Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in Pmsforsale

    Yes they are. I dont really have a dog in that fight but it's always nice seeing the Patriots lose.

    [–] WTS - Barber Halves and JM bars Energy_Turtle 2 points ago in Pmsforsale

    Not much. Watching football. What about you?

    [–] WTS - Barber Halves and JM bars Energy_Turtle 1 points ago in Pmsforsale

    Probably not as nice as you'd want. I have some in VG and then some nicer ones I'd like to keep. Dang Barbers are so expensive I just don't impulse buy a lot of them.
