  1. I would say this is a good time to start searching for old American gold and silver graded coins by checking out your local coin shops, looking for credible coin dealers, getting coin books, and coin guides,
    and doing research like film director James Cameron, and the exploration crew did for the Titanic that brought great rewards, and special memories to so many people around the world.
