As promised, I finally got the complete set of New Hampshire Goldbacks to add to my collection. This adds to the other state editions I already own, which are Utah and Nevada. According to goldback.com, there are more editions in the works, so I'll be looking forward to picking those up as well.
Once again, taking a good photo of these is difficult, and they are very reflective, and like to curl up on you when you remove them from the sleeve.
Here's a scan of all five denominations. Like the rest of my state goldbacks, the designs are intricate and attractive.
As an added bonus, I bought this 1/10 gram 'Merry Christmas' note. These would make great gifts during the holidays. They aren't listed anymore, so I might be out of luck trying to get more to give as gifts. Speaking of gifts, I gave some Utah notes as gifts to my brother and nephew, and they were a hit. I will mostly likely keep it going for future birthdays as well. I feel much better about buying gifts that have the potential to appreciate in value, and also provide some educational value to the youngsters.
Finally, I decided to add a 10oz hunk of silver to my collection. It's secondary market, meaning someone had already bought it and sold it back to APMEX, which means it's scratch and dent condition. Fine by me. It has a good heft to it. It feels like I could easily throw it through a glass window.
Needless to say, crypto and stocks have been vastly outperforming precious metals, so their percentage of my portfolio continues to drop. I will need to continue to accumulate them going forward.
Thanks for reading
