2006 Silver Eagle error REVERSE STRUCK THRU

Anybody else have one? Now that 2006 is half way over, has anyone else heard or seen of the 2006 Silver Eagle errors? I got mine from NGC themselves when I renewed my membership! I thought it was a misgrade until I sent it back for review, and then it came back as an error. Anybody else? eagleminte

GRADING! Now HERE'S a topic!

I, too have bought a few lunches, dinners, and breakfasts for the graders at NGC, only to have "not gradable coins"... ...come back in body bags. I've had a B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L Morgan 1884-O that I bought off an auction site, and as good as my untrained eye is, tried to match hairlines from other graded Morgans, and this one had ALOT more hairlines than those graded in MS65! I was psyched! Plus, it had a nice slight cameo on both obverse and reverse. The reverse was a good guess at MS66, if

I WON!!!!!!

Just goes to show what happens when you throw a date out there... Thank you Mr. Cooper for the cointest...I mean contest...either way. Wish I could do the same for other collectors. As of now, all my high grades go into hiding for my twin boys till they grow up, or daddy goes into eternal sleep! Which ever comes first! (I'm hoping they will grow up first, so I can at least tell them about the coins that I have for them). This will be one of those coins. My boys will be pretty set... but I

Pics of MY oldest coins

They are 81 and 82 years younger than Mr. Coopers! Like I said in one of my earlier entries, I bought these at a flea market probably around 1979-81 (I was 16 or 18). The guy wanted $10.00 a peice for them, and I did the usual "well, I don't know, I just want them as a joke to tell my Ma look what I found in the back yard" type deal, but I knew that with that kind of strike, they really had to be old. He didn't know what they were and couldn't find anything about them in any coin books, and

Any help on 16th century French coins?

I have 2 ready for grading... One is a 1587 French Henry III 1/4 Ecu, and the other is 1588H Henry IIII 1/2 Franc, silver I believe, and in very good shape. Let's guesstamate that they are in XF condition. Any collectory know the possible value of these? I bought them at a flea market about a million years ago, both for $10.00, because the guy selling them didn't know what they were, or what they were worth....either did I, and still don't. Any help on value?

Question about 1979 SBA dollars

Have you seen the price difference for narrow and wide rim? Follow collectors, do me yet another favor and check the NGC population for the 1979 SBA dollars and look at narrow and wide rim SBA dollars. Is that a correct price for a narrow rim SBA?? I went on another website and they pretty much said that the narrow constituted for about 45% of the population, before they went wide rim. What is the real difference between the 1979P, they 1979 narrow, and the 1979 wide? The wide and narrow I

I got my NGC Eagle Dollar Back

Went in for an appearance overview because I thought it was whizzed, and still got a MS68... Now it's still graded as MS68, but a mint error REVERSE STRUCK THRU. Fellow collectors, do the verify certification on this coin 2175116-001, and check the population report. Do you get 1795 capped 1/2 cents also?? eagleminte

Understanding turn around time

Follow up from yesterdays E-mail Fellow collectors, I do understand NGC getting swamped with submissions. I do understand that it's now going to take longer. I can also understand the price increase because of the aforementioned. Yes, NGC is a great coin grader. If you want the service, your gonna pay for it. If you want to service, your gonna wait for it. I really don't have a problem waiting an extra week, but it still sticks in my head that I could of had my submissions a week ago, li

NGC Customer Service

Reply INSTEAD OF Forward I really couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this. And she's in customer service? I, like the rest of you collectors, TRIED to be understanding with the extended turn around times, and wanted a somewhat small compensation. Read the E-mail trail that I had from customer service. Start from the bottom for it to make sense. Ms. Kesten,   Thank you for the positive reinforcement (and your customer service?) Please FORWARD THIS to Scott   Sincerely   Pam

There's more! I also had 3 graded with stars (*) two graded at 68, and one at 69! and, as a small bonus, I also had a PF 69 Cameo Lincoln cent! Time to exhale..............

People are people

Deadlines Yes, I too am not too happy with the slowness of NGC. But, I've also learned that you don't tell the barber that he gives bad haircuts right before you get yours! In saying that, to the person that complains to NGC all the time about them being slow, well, you may not know it, and I'M NOT saying that they do this, but your order just may get pushed down a few more! The other point that I would like to make is, if they said it was going to be 15 days for modern, and got it to you i

1971 Proof Kennedy errors?

Lint or hair stikes I have 2) 1971 proof Kennedy halves that have been struck with lint or hair on them. One has 2 places on the front (by the date and by the Y in LIBERTY), the other has one that went through the first L in DOLLAR that goes up to the top of the second L. Is there a market for such a thing?

1970 proof close and wide AM cent?

I had just bought 2 1970 proof sets, and was going through the cherrypickers guide to see if there were any errors. For some reason, I looked at the back of the cents, and there is a definite difference in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The "United" seems unevenly spaces, and the AM in America has but a paper width seperation, where as the other has a definite seperation. I've checked some 1971 proof cents, and they all have the seperation. Has anyone heard or know of this as an error coin?
