One Change I'd Like To See On Registry Scores

Isn't AU-58 better than AU-50? This topic has been bothering me for a while. Since NGC, PCGS and ANACS all grade AU coins with at least 4 levels (50, 53, 55 and 58), shouldn't regsitry scores reflect this. And also in VF and EF, they throu in 25, 35 and 45. So shouldn't someone who paid extra for a higher grade receive more points??? To me, it's the same as for the MS grades, a 63 will get less points than a 64 and so on. I can understand for modern coins (but to be fair, all should be treat

?? In my April journal entry I mulled my options about what step to take in my numismatic quest. I had completed my Morgan Dollar registry set and, knowing I could never climb much higher in the ranks, was undecided in whether to upgrade or move on to another goal. I decided to work on upgrading those coins that wouldn't rush me to the Poor House. I've managed to slide a few coins up a grade or two. However, I've hit a snag. I recently purchased a nice 1885 NGC MS66 to replace a very nice PCGS

I know the reason!!!

Would you believe... Yes, my friends, I know the reason for the extra long turn around times at NGC. We have been told they grade about 100,000 coins per month. I was wondering.."Are there really that many coins to grade each month?" I looked to Ebay for answers. I ask you to do the same... At the Ebay home page do a search on NGC Waffle. You'd be surprised how many listings come up. THAT'S the answer... NGC is encapsulating so many waffled coins, they dont have time for the regular paying c

Re: I know (Not)

I know some of my nice Morgans are in body bags. Wait a minute, My morgan has a scratch on it, it is returned in a body bag, not a slab because it is altered after it left the mint, thats one ,wrong color same thing, no slab,but if I send in a waffle , I get slabbed, No way! whats next gold plated state quarters if you send in a 1,000.The T.V. guys can make thier own rules I guess. How about first smashed Waffel. O'well we will see.Have fun collecting,I do thats the point. best to you al

You're Kidding Right??????

Searched and Searched for Waffels, but... Ok, I'm too new at this to know if your serious or not...but it does take a long time to get my coins back from NGC, so now that I know the reason, I wanted to see for myself what all the waffeling is about...! I did the eBay search, now I suppose you're laughing right, no matter how many times I did it or what configuration of key words I used, I kept getting the same 7 listings. Now I'm convinced I not only know nothing about collecting coins, I don'

STAY FAR AWAY FROM ANACS!!!!!!

Ok first time ever coin submission sent to anacs to try them out. Sent in a proof silver set of 2005 11 coin back in mid march and just got them back today. After floating around in their facility for two months over half came back under PF65 with heavy damage and not a single coin over PF68. I carefully packed each and every coin individually and inspected for damage prior to being sent. I even heavilly padded the box in layers taping each coin flip to the layers of foam padding. So now $150+

Red faced Roosevelt Dime

Rudolph the Red Nosed Dime I have a 2000 S silver Proof Roosevelt dime that the face has turned a rich rust RED color and Roosevelt's nose is really red. It is still in the original Mint proof case and came with a silver proof set. The raised areas (primarily the head) including the lettering has turned this Deep color while the cameo portion is 100% like normal. This seems strange to me. The picture is a scan and has some trash on the scanner and on the plastic case that the coin is in.

Why Doesn't NGC Have British Empire Registry Sets?

New and popular Registry sets (maybe). British gold coins are becomming more popular everyday. Most of the dates from 1902 through 1932 from the seven mints were considered bullion, now they are trading at more than 50% over melt especially mint state certified pieces. Would be nice to have date sets of Victoria, Edward VII, George V and Elizabeth II Maybe throw in the two 20 franc Swiss sets and the 10 franc set.

Jefferson's Westward Journey

Why is there no Jefferson Nickel Type set. Not being a Nickel collector, I have never paid much attention to the set up of Jefferson Nickel Registry Sets. Recently I got the bright idea to put together a type set for the Jefferson Nickel. With the new Westward Journey designs there are 7 unique examples. In addition to the traditional deisgn we have the Silver WWII variety, the 4 "Westward Journey" designs from 2004 and 2005, and the new "Return to Monticello" deisgn. Since I like to mix t

Did anyone know about this ?

Is it true? A friend of mine sent me this. The S.S. Central America...coins sold exclusively by Heritage, David Hall, Bowers and Merena and others, mostly PNG members/PCGS dealers. Over 5,000 coins that had been buried at sea for over 120 years encrusted with coral were treated with all kinds of chemicals to remove the encrustations, were miraculously restored to PCGS MS-65 at $15,000.00 a coin. The PCGS holders do not say SEA SALVAGED nor SALT WATER nor CORAL ENCRUSTED, no they have been gr
