to the web-book resource for Liberty Seated Dime varieties and
Gerry Fortin Rare Coins; desirable coins for Seated and Bust collectors.
Gerry Fortin has been
collecting and researching Liberty Seated Dime since 1988 and
launched his Liberty Seated Dimes - Die Varieties, 1837 - 1891
web-book during 2004. The web-book expanded die variety knowledge
beyond the efforts of Kamal Ahwash and Brian Greer in their respective
numismatic research guides. Contained within the Fortin web-book
is a wealth of new information about Liberty Seated Dime die varieties,
die states and rarity coupled with a presentation format using
exceptional photography. Content is continually updated based
on collector discoveries and submissions for attribution and verification.
I hope you enjoy this
online numismatic adventure!

Model Rocket Kit Collecting Guide
kit database pages are updated and reflect eBay sales from February
2008 through June 2011. Recorded pricing observation in the database
now stands at 9680 entries. All updated kit prices and totals
are black colored. Due
to a very busy 2011 business schedule, I had no choice but to
place the Estes Kit Database on hold. I did manage to collect
eBay kit pricing into the June 2011 timeframe and those prices
are published. There are a number of new kit variety listings
so checking the revised database could be worthwhile for serious
5: Starting to update eBay pricing results in all three databases
for the March-May 2013 timeframe. This update will be done by
end of day May 6. My apology for not paying attention to the Estes
databases for a long period of time. On average, it appears prices
for original and problem free Estes kits are climbing.
5: Added K-45
1970 and 1971
Astron Beta, 1340
Scud B and 1367
Vindicator individual kit description pages. Added K-23 Big
Bertha pictorial guide page.
6: Added rare K Kit group (X-Ray, Beta, Apogee II, Big Bertha,
Thor Agena) with pre Damon yellow hang tags and countdown hang
tags to the database and pictorial guide. I won the X-Ray and
Apogee II kit and should have big higher for the Beta kit. This
was a once in several year opportunity to acquire early K Kits
in original condition.
pictorial pages also provide links into kit description pages
inside the database. To my knowledge, this Estes database is becoming
the most comprehensive study of Estes model rocket kit packaging
and artwork varieties ever assembled.
