Sweet. This means another exclusive label for MM.
“I’m the only source for anyone looking to be the lucky owner of the scarce Whatnot Innovation Dollars! This extremely limited edition has sold out everywhere else!”
Don’t you just love the innovative names they come up with for a business in the 21st century? ‘Whatnot’ will surely become the largest social marketplace in human history and endure for generations to come. I can’t wait for ‘Whatnot’ to go public, so I can back my truck up with ‘Whatnot’ stock.In the meantime, I’ll just have to be satisfied with ‘Whatnot Innovation Dollars’…it does kinda roll off the tongue. Kevin Hart or JJ Walker could be their spokesman!
Craig, I just checked out the Whatnot site for the very first and most likely last time. It brought to mind nothing more or less than an intolerably nerve-grating combination of the styles of facebook, ebay, tik tok, HSN and MTV.
You beat me to it Dazed! The ‘King of Coin Collecting’ is in expansion mode. I’m beginning to feel those labels are worth more than the coin in the holder.
Mr. Sold Out Limited Edition Mike Mezack from Florida was just spotted at NGC world headquarters in Sarasota, Florida roaming the hallways & begging for special labels & top 70 grades for his coins. He pulls his little red wagon around ANACS & NGC like a vagabond filling it with his numismatic booty & then disappears only to be seen on cable TV offloading his common, very highly overpriced coins on HSN & CSN & taking senior citizens & lonely shut-ins life savings telling them they bought something very very very special special special… Sad!
Whatever Caffeine Mike may be given to doing by way of misleading coin buying senior citizens absolutely pales to almost nothing when compared to the countless financial crimes that the multitude of massive scam call centers of India so fiendishly perpetrate on that very same cohort of the American populace.
When it comes to countless financial crimes Sir Kaiser, please do not overlook our corrupt to the bone president. Traitor is more apt than president. Perhaps MM can learn from him to tweak his disgraceful behavior.
Mike Mezack, coin ripoff King was an apprentice on loser, pathological liar, traitor, 3-time adulterer, porn star pay for sex & hush money, 34 felony indicted, liable for sexual assault & battery and defamation with a jury award of $5 million against him, 3-time bankruptcy failure, narcissist, Donald Trump’s The Apprentice tv show from long ago…MM learned from the best scammer/grifter in the whole history of the USA – Trump.
Even Phineas T. Barnum had a heart, & would blush at what Trump did to our Democracy!
Just because you write all those lies doesn’t make them true. Well, I’ll reluctantly agree about the narcissism, but name me one celebrity that doesn’t think the world evolves around them.
I could name a dead one-Galileo.
You win the humor prize of the day… that was priceless!
Bingo. That’s a winner, Jeff!
Galileo? Galileo. Galileo? Galileo. Galileo! Magnifico
Like I said, Craig, since it doesn’t make any difference regarding our reason and purpose to be here as fellow numismatists, which of course there is no way on earth it should, the presidential issue is simply one of those areas where we choose to disagree. Unlike all too many other places on earth we enjoy the freedom to express our opinions without fear of governmental interference, censorship or punishment.
You said it, Seth. Amen to that.
Apparently his Orange Highness’s appearance on CNN the other night not only further exemplified his ever so repulsive persona but also sullied that network’s own reputation thanks to the association with his slimy presence. As for the treason factor, after Don the Con instigated the January 6 insurrection I was hoping for him to go to jail sooner rather than later but so far no such luck. It’s still a “yet”.
Kaiser, That is another reason I use my iPhone. It blocks all ‘Spam Calls’ for me! It is surprising how many I have to delete each day!
That’s a very wise thing to do, Craig. I personally would like to be able to reach through the “phone line” and slap those annoying fools at the other end alongside the head, so there’s that.
Your 100% Correct, but those Networks that sell his coins are just as guilty. From listening to the Show Hosts on HSN, he is only of world’s few honest Nnumismatist, and only Mike Mezack has the knowledge that is need to buy coins. That being said make one wonder what else on HSN is way overpriced?
Perhaps, raphaelo, no one should buy anything from late night TV hustlers.
Pretty simple. Just type what it is and use shopping and it’ll usually give you a price range. But a lot of the hsn exclusive have simple changes so you can’t find a good comparison. Like a LG TV for bestbuy may be model ABC23. Exact same TV with different speakers at Walmart abc22. Same TV with slightly different processor at target abc24 and hsn version with different video card is abc26. That’s how they keep competition down around Christmas from price matching. Just enough difference, whether chip wise, or software, or hardware. If chip and software it could make… Read more »
Your mention, Dazed and Coinfused, of a future United States population of 500 million just gave me the vapors. Right now we are already gridlocked on our streets and highways; just imagine what kind of a logjam more than 100 million additional drivers will result in.
“NGC provides an accurate, consistent and impartial assessment of authenticity and grade” That statement is subject to the amount of money one spends having NGC grade coins. I believe they give the highest grades to those that spend the most money, they also get preferential treatment. Doubt they will give me the same, respect, rates or teatment they give Rick Tomaska who had 1964 Kennedy Half’s a few years graded as Early releases about two years ago because they were in sealed bags. Yet they would not do the same for me around the same time with 2016 Reagan Presential… Read more »
raphaelo, NGC has catered to large dealers with rare coins for quite awhile with special treatment. Of course, the large dealer companies send them their ASE $1 coins because NGC gives out more top 70 grades on those coins than PCGS does. For example, this Whatnot company is getting special access into NGC’s world headquarters in Sarasota, Florida for a live streaming money raising event. NGC is supposed to be 100% unbiased in it’s activities in numismatic grading, but they sure want some of Whatnot companies high approximately 11% fee they charge to sellers on their tacky platform. Have you… Read more »
Seth and raphaelo,
I have only one thing to say regarding this absolutely monumental absurdity…
The fact you have to be a member or submit a minimum of 100 coins or pay a pawn or coin shop to submit on your behalf seems discriminatory. Also discriminatory is being worth more than 1 million dollar excluding home in order to buy in on stock and companies before they go public. Although there are more Avenues to buy stock online or through apps but partial stock. Which I guess is good if you can’t afford 1 share at $1000 but can get 1/4 share for $250. Whether or not the dividends they pay are also equal to… Read more »
The entire Chinese numismatic community has been referring to the Red Book precisely since our Mint stopped making silver coins for circulation. Don’t even try to tell me that there isn’t a connection between that and us being left behind!
