1971 Proof Lincoln Cent

I got my beef about turn around times but... Someone please tell me how a 1971 proof 68 Ucam cent loses half the value over a couple of months? It was valued at $350 better than 6 months ago, and now it's only $156?? I was glad I won one off of Eba...ummm...an auction site for $75.00 thinking I would be ahead since you can usually get a "common" rare proof for less than half price listed. But for the price to drop in half? That means, I'd be LUCKY to get my money back if I were to list it.

SMS (or Satin Finish) coins are providing more fodder for variety enhusiasts.

Well! The satin finish coins from mint sets are yet another variety to add your collection. Last year's Satin Finish coins generated a call from some mint state coin collectors to recognize their "business strikes" separately from the Satin Finish (or SMS) coins in registry sets. From all I have heard, both PCGS and NGC are considering weighting the business strikes of the same grade higher than the satin finish coins. It appears that there are a lot of satin finish coins from the mint sets

Re: 2006 MINT SETS

The Mint started using the Satin Finish process in 2005... Satin Finish coins were issued for the first time in 2005. This year, the Mint's just continuing the process. I really don't prefer them over the regular coins, but that's just my opinion.

Re: This is the NGC Registry. Right?

Sure it is the NGC registry. But exclusivity is not right. My previous post with the teaser "NGC enhances value by its inclusiveness" addresses this issue. Exclusivity does not help PCGS and it never will. PCGS registry set came first. It was innovative, but that is where its advantage stopped. NGC registry came later, but it was a great improvement, with its points system and inclusiveness. Some of my best sets are all NGC, but I am not delusional enough to believe it is better than any

American Buffalo

Native American treat! In my humble opinion, this new gold American Buffalo is one of the greatest design the mint has EVER used! I understand next year 2007 the mint will have four coins just like the eagle. Let's hope so. Secondly, buffalo meat is excellent. IF you are ever in Northern Utah, you must stop by Perry, Utah on I-15! Perry is next to Brigham City to the south. There is a steak house called Maddox Steakhouse.. They have the most EXCELLENT BISON CHICKEN FRIED STEAK. Add

RE: Re: re: This is the NGC Registry. Right?

I seemed to have ruffled some feathers, but I didn't miss the point in the body of my post, only failed to mention it in the teaser for the post. In my last post, along with my discourse on value added via the use of options was the following sentence: "If they start to rate PCGS coins any lower, the value of our options will diminish." So I didn't miss the point nor were my arguments "misdirected" as another poster has suggested. Should NGC award lower points for PCGS coins? In my opinion

How Much is a coin worth.

One auction gallery has the following listing. And it goes on and on. I think it is because of the size of the population difference from NGC to PCGS This auction is for a 2002 FDR dimeSeptember 4, 2005 70 PCGS $103.50 Tuesday, March 8, 2005 70 PCGS $80.50 Tuesday, July 18, 2006 70 NGC $25.00 Tuesday, July 4, 2006 70 NGC $42.00

RE: Re: This is the NGC Registry. Right?

This post had nothing to do with exclusivity... I think you flew by the actual topic of the post. This wasn't about NGC being exclusive. It was a nod towards a little extra credit for having a complete NGC collection on the NGC registry. Your argument is misdirected. Good Day ;-)

How much is the slab worth?

In some cases thousands, in others...nothing I recently had an experience that made me step back and ponder the question...how much do we pay for slabs? I'm not refering to the cost of submission, but the "extra" we pay for THE SAME quality coin in various holders.In my case lately it appears to be $300-400. I submitted 3 coins for re-grade{and these were PQ...I studied dozens of photos in auction archives of coins in this grade range}and 4 for crossover from PCGS to NGC...with special instruc

Regrades downwards and the NGC guarantee, how good is it?

Well they finally removed the 5FS off the no-step Jefferson I last wrote about. It took a call to NGC where I was asked to send it to the attention of Mr. Taylor to get this done. He called me back (when I was out) and left a message saying I'd get some coupon or readjustment for my trouble and their mistake. However, today the coin arrived without anything with it. Not to put NGC down of course but several years ago when PCGS regraded a (one of eight at the time) "finest known" Jefferson's 2

To tone or not 2 tone?

ok i bought some coins 4 bright flawless to the naked eye, beautiful 1996 ase's. 2 two toned coins. The toned coins so far are two toned (3 if you count the silver). On the obverse a deep sort of steel blue around the circumference of the coins fading to a goldish tone that gets lighter as you move to the center of the coin (so i guess if you want to be technical there are many different tones). The reverse has very little toning although you can see it is starting. Ive never been into tone

Re:gold buffalo proof

Nope!! If the box is opened and it is after the 30 day grace period the answer is no they will not designate it as First Strike. The box has got to be sealed and have a date on the box that was within that first 30 day period, if the boxes seal has been broken or if the date on the box is after that date then your coin will not get the designation

Be patient if you are on a budget!

Everyone knows the economy is on a decline in America, but who knew that would spill over to NGC? I have an economy tier submission (some beautiful Morgans). they were recieved over 3 weeks ago and still aren't scheduled for grading! i was under the impression that it was a 21 day turnaround. ooops....current turnaround is 38 days. wow! if my math is right that's an 80% decline in efficency! sure hope the american economy isn't heading in the same direction.

Take Responsibility for your Bodybags!

Slam me if you wish, but take responsibility for your coins being bagged! The biggest problem I see with individuals submitting coins is they are not experienced and do not know what to look for. On a weekly basis I have collectors bring me coins to submit that look "good" or "nice" that I will not submit because they have been cleaned. I'd recommed that before you start buying and submitting coins to be certified you spend a year or two going to shows and looking at coins in slabs and thos
