ONE MORE PL UPGRADE DONE

Found 1899 O PL My new addition for my Morgan's Collection. I purchased two raw Morgans on Ebay. 1899 O and 1900. The 1899 O was GEM DMPL and the 1900 GEM PL. Unfortunately after the grading process the 1900 was certified as a cleaned coin. :-( The 1899 O came back as a MS63PL, I was hoping for more but I am kind of happy with this grade. It was one of PL hard to find in any grade for low budget collector. You can see the reverse in my registry set.

re: graded coins

it is open market Generally most of medium graded coins (ms60 to ms64) sells on ebay for lee than the value. Sometimes for loss. It happend to me numeros times when I upgraded my collection. If somebody needs the coin then they pay more but usually coins on ebay just change online dealers. There is more to offer.

RE: pcgs vs. ngc

hmm it my be a good point This is other way to look at it. I do not watch TV shopping channels because they lie and overprice their stuff. I have couple of NGC coin that in my opinion would grade higher and also I has some weir experience with NGC graded stained morgan. May be NGC give bigger discount to high volume dealers and PCGS is trying to keep their services contain so their coin price remain in higher level. May be it is just market demand ? one cannot be sure. But if you buying a co

RE:NUMISMEDIA vs. PCGS PRICE GUIDES #3

PCGS has always higher resale value For some reason PCGS has always better resale value than NGC I am not sure why but they do. Couple of weeks back we posted some of the thoughts on the forum. In my opinion PCGS is just a marketing boom and both NGC and PCGS has the same quality grading services. If you look on Ebay, Heritage, and other online auctions PCGS usulay sells for more, then same coin graded by NGC. May be it is because PCGS list the coin value higher or they generate their p

RE:NUMISMEDIA vs. PCGS PRICE GUIDES.

it is in the coin I think that tha PCGS and NUMISMEDIA prices is just type of average value guide. A lot of common grades and coins are usually sell way under their value but coins that are in higher demand are sometimes sold for more. Also some collectors buying coins that have nice appeal. I saw two 1878 S Morgan dollars on ebay one was MS65 with ugly toning the second one was nice looking MS64 with PL obverse. The MS65 was sold for 145.00 and the MS64 sold for 179.00 both graded by NGC S

Not very nice quarter

Wyoming quarter is just plain Today i just received the new Wyoming quarter and when I look om the reverse, I did not like it very much the design is very plain and simple. Not to much craftsmanship. It looks like same game token you get in casino or pizza place. Lately I was browsing Royal Canadian Mint and I must stated that they are step ahead of US mint. I would buy some coins but to my suprise the Canadian dollar is worth more that US dollar.

RE : Photographing Coins

It is hell of a job to do good picture I sell sometimes coin on ebay also I am posting pictures in my registry and take a good picture is a hard job. First: Natural light is very good sometimes I go outside and block the direct sun with white piece of paper. If is overcast the picture seems darker, but too much light is not good I used many types of digital cameras and they are the key. I would not recommend lower brand of digital camera and also make sure it has a picture stabilizer this

Buying Cheaper on Ebay than at US MINT

What is really the dealer price Or is Jamestown Dollar not popular Recently I purchased Jamestown Silver Dollar NGC PFUC69 on Ebay for 29.00 The mint selling the same coin for 39.00 + the grading fee. Why is this coin not popular or their are too many? I don not collect comm. but I like the coin for the nice design. I think this is one of the nicer ones and more desirable comm. coin. But I guess I am wrong.

SGS

JUST A SCAM TO SELL COINS SGS Is a scam company by Ebay seller Abacon COINS, I bought one of their sets in 2005 (2005 proof set MS70 :-)) Then I submit complaint and now I am restricted to bid on their items :-). They just making profit on new coin collectors, with deals like 1880S Morgan MS67. The coin looks like MS63 - MS64, it sold for $85.00, NGC certified MS64 will go probably for $50.00

re : BU - RedBook

BU starting on MS60 In my opinion BU is starting on MS60,61 Choice BU 62,63,64 GEM BU 65,66 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.

RE: PCGS pricing

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.

Re: im in the same boat as you!

sellesr usualy tends to overgrade their coins.... No all of them but majority like to make some profit on their coins. I recently purchased 1880 O Morgan (You can see picture in my registry set) the seller advertised MS64. When I receive the coin I was very unplesed, in my (more liberal then NGC) grade the coin was strong MS62 posibly MS63. NGC grade the coin MS62. You have to make your own jugment. NGC just can agree or disagree :-). But for you the coin is what You grade it and what you will

RE: Opened Containers II

Recently I received couple of holders like that. I think it is just sealant. I recently receive couple of holders that have some melted plastic hanging on the edges and some in corners. I do not know how the seal the holders but looks like melted plastic points. I try open one holder and I did have to serious damage to get the coin out. If somebody wants open MS68 Silver Eagle he must have a lot of time, patience and be crazy :-)
