Instead of writing a blog post on this topic, I decided to use the new eBay Reviews & Guides feature to write a new “eBay Guide” on the topic of the US State Quarter Program:
Read it and let me know what you think. If you like it, and you are an eBay member, please vote for the guide as useful.
The fundamental theory is that by looking at the total mintage of a state quarter, and comparing it to the population of the state, you can partially predict where supply & demand will be out of balance in the future. This is because demand is skewed by the population of a state, but the US Treasury mints quarters purely based on macroeconomic conditions at the time.
I continue to be a fairly avid coin collector, and I thought it would be nice to try and “give back” to the eBay coin community by putting together a guide. I’m interested to see what feedback I get from posting in that forum.
