i have 2 rolls of sacs with gg under baby on obv. does this make them the goodacre group in pricing?(have 2000p&d)
Can anybody tell the difference, small motto-big motto?
I have a few of the 1864 2 cent coins collected by my late fatherinlaw. I know my eyes are getting worse but I can't tell the difference between Big Motto and Small Motto even looking at the pictures in the coin book. Is there any definitive way to tell these babys apart? G.

silver and a few Lincolns I have upgraded from are currently listed on eBay. My 2005 Mint Set will join the lot shortly. A few more Lincoln's will be posted in the days ahead after their upgrades arrive in the mail.
Everything I have except for my Lincoln's, my Aussie Lunars, my SMS Sets and my 1966 set have to go. Please check eBay if you are interested in what you see. My eBay name is the same as my name for Collector's Society.
The coins will be listed individually wi
I think I have found some doubling...
but I need some help. I am not very knowledgeably about any series but the Lincoln's!
I was putting together some Whitman folders today and noticed this.
It appears to me this is some sort of date doubling. The "59" in the date are the suspect characters here. As it appears to me, there is definitely a small 5 stamped below the prominent 5 (all of the loop, half of the stem and the tip of the cross bar are visible on this small 5). I think I can also
More MS 70s added to collection.
Well, I added 5 more MS-70s to my collection of American Sivler Eagles yesterday. I paid over $1,0000.00 for them AFTER shopping around.
Now I am not complaining about paying that for them. As the consumer that is my choice. But it appears that theses prices are unusually high, even with the increase in bullion prices.
There is no way theses coins should be this expensive. Well, again if I am a sucker enough to by them....
By the way, I like to add jo
But... please reconsider.
While I direct this response to William, we have all been there and have experienced the pain.
Lord knows I have done more than my fair share of complaining about services provided at NGC. Just check my Journal Entries and you'll see I have been a thorn in their side more than once.
Not too long ago, I was so fed up with my perceptions of non-service that I decided to have a little fun. I had a contest posted here on the CS board, to guess how long it would take

I have been reading the journal articles concerning grading and turnaround time, and I've decided it's time for me to put in my 2 cent piece. :-)
I truly feel that possibly all of us, we as customers and NGC as professional graders, are both right and wrong. Please let me explain.
First let me say, that I'm probably a mellow and laid back person. I've finally have learne
Paid it off today And when I got to the shop....
I paid off my 1894-S NGC MS62 Morgan today. I am so happy.
Added it to my collection of Morgan dollars.....and after I
paid it off the dealer says to me, "Here, take a look at these".
More Morgans. Here is the list
1885 CC MS64 NGC
1889 O MS63 NGC
1898 S MS62 NGC
1887 S MS62 PCGS with some nice toning
I love the CC Morgans so you can guess which one is coming home with me next time.
I have posted a picture of the 1894 S
End of an Era
I had the pleasure of talking with The President of NGC Rick Montgomery on April 21. We discussed several issues. Although there was no resolution to these issues, it was nice of him to take time to chat with me.
I would like to share my thoughts on this conversation. Mr Montgomery is well spoken and affable. It is clear to me that he is committed to NGC. For those of you that will continue to use their services, you should know they receive and grade 100,000 coins a month. A
You can teach old dogs new tricks...
...or in this case, an old dog can find another fascinating facet of our hobby.I was browsing on Teletrade, and found a "So-Called Dollar" medal. Evidently it was issued to commemorate (according to the auction description) the 1898 Trans-Mississippi Exposition, which was held in Omaha. On the front is a left facing female bust.However, it's the reverse which makes this medal fit into my Wild, Wild West set. The reverse shows a mounted Indian (I would assume

REDBOOK is just the a guide because it is printed ahead of time and the price of silver and some of the coins is changing daily. I think Numis media and PCGS price guide is much better and accurate.
are the silver eagles reg strike realy worth as much as pcgs says? i have 2 whole sets and 1 half set. i get these at a local store for 15$ apc regardless of date. and how long does it take to get the 5 free grading cupons?i have been saving to get things graded and cant untill i get thos to save a lil money. also what is the best grading teir to get a set of peace dollars graded?
thank u all for the warm welcomes and help.if you need any questions anwsered about gems let me know that is
Don't expect an email response.
Don't expect an email response, wigglebutts. There is little line of communication between NGC and its customers. And when they are wrong, do not expect any communication whatsoever. That has been my experience, I am sorry to say.
The price in for PCGS certified coins
PCGS price guide reflect PCGS certified coins. Some dealers sell MS69 eagles graded by them or some other company (NNC, PCI CCGS etc..) but if you resubmit them to PCGS they might come back as 67 or 68. So there is the price difference. And I am sure if somebody buying certified silver egale they do not pay exact the price but usualy less.
Those CC Dollars help
Just started my Registry set of Morgan Dollars. I am going to try and keep 95 percent of the set mostly MS64 to MS66. I have included some PL and DPLs'to the set. I am not an investor that is going to sell the set when it is completed, but hand it down to my grand-daughter. After adding two Carson City Dollars to the set, I have moved up to 196 with 12 percent of the set completed. Will get the the rest of the CCs' soon. Hope to add an MS64 1893 to the set next week, but

A "TOP POP" NGC 1963 MS67 cent with only 4 existing, and I got it for a steal.
I was checking my eBay favorite searches when I noticed something way down at the bottom in one of the fixed price listings. It was a 1963 Cent graded by NGC as MS67RD. The "BUY IT NOW" price was $219.95. I knew I wanted one for my registry set, but I didn't have any idea what it was really worth so I got onto the Collector's Society website and checked the population report. It told me that there are only 4 exi
