    When one coin is the center of attention, there is no need to point out which one it is.

    Something tells me that the 2017 Boys Town coin coming later this year will be overshadowed by this coin, even after the release. Maybe it will still get a low mintage, due to lack of attention...but it won't have the advantage of as many competing gold coin offerings at the Mint.

    By the way, Louis Golino seems to have high hopes for the Boys Town coin, but I have learned to disregard his prognostications, for the most part.

    If there's a prognosticator who is consistently, uncannily correct about moderns I have yet to meet him. The 2008-2011 years had a lot of people like me thinking this is all a piece of cake and look at us now. Until a new bull in pm's and a subsequent bull in numis the pain for those who bought high, and the boredom for others continues.

    Good insurance to cover for any counting errors.

    I think it is now safe to say that the new mintage record will stand.

    One lucky bidder on eBay got a 2013 5-Star Generals coin at MS70 for $490 (with $5.95 shipping), about a week ago.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/2013-P-5-St...993147?hash=item3ad8d5cbbb:g:FWcAAOSwImRYgq89

    Granted, this coin was knocked from the 2nd place spot in the mintage rankings by the 2016 NPS coin, but its mintage is only a few hundred higher than the 1997 JR coin and it was easily going for $600 less than a year ago.

    I will be looking for this coin to stabilize somewhere around this price, but maybe closer to the mid-500s.
