re: turn around

i to love the fact that ngc works hard to get the coins back to me in a timely matter.on my first send in, 2 gsa cc morgans, came back within 8 days of sending. i use overnight so that there is less tym for usps or others to have in transit. but the fact that they came back so fast is heart warming to me. they do a gr8 job and do it fast. i am sending in my next 8 coins in on the first of the month. thanks ngc!!!!!!!!!

question about cleaning

i have a few coins that look ms60 + but they have some darkness to them. i know if it were clean it would show some very nice luster and hair and such...but im not going to atemp to clean my self without knowing how to"properly" clean coins. is there a way to clean right? or do i spend the (?) money to get them cleaned by ngc b4 grading? any feedback would be appreciated:)

re: whats going on ..

i to have a coin graded and slabed that is not regestering as anything. it is a 2003 s$1 american heroes edition jessica lynch pcgs. the number on it reads: 72318137 it is a graded silver eagle but it wont add to my collection regester. if it is not going to go on i think they need to buy back coin.

found out the hard way

when i sent gsa morgans in .... i sent them in the boxxes with certs. BIG mistake! now that i know how to send i will know,but not sure what they do with these types of things. being that ppl on ebay sell just the boxxes for 30 bucks or so i think they came out nicely in this deal. got paid for grading a coin already slabbed and 30$-60$ in gsa boxxes and certs. reason i sent in with boxxes is it took 4 weeks to get coupon, and as u kan see im inpatiant. im still happy they came back how

re.ss

if they want the copy they can have it(ill buy another). i love this place, ty for the post of the 1964 d, i enjoyed reading it. im not 1 to be scared by the gov over a dollar. this coin is a copy & states it. i would not be scared to own the accual coin because being 26 i couldnt be the 1 that took coin.it is very sad that they would even make a coin that would not make it to the publics hands. now a lil swich up...about spot prices,what do people think about the jump in gold and the

question!!!!

about the sac dollars... the sac dollar is quite popular right now.i like it cause i live next to the shoshone tribe in blackfoot idaho my girlfriend is shoban. i notice on the pcgs price guide that there r two types. goodacre and tomas rogers.the goodacre marked with "gg" being better. i have 2 rolls of sacs with gg under baby on obv. does this make them the goodacre group in pricing?(have 2000p&d)

where do i go now?

now that ive... now that i have only 1 peace silver dollar to find and it is the hardest to find in ms condition at a reasonable price. i was thinking ofcollecting coins of lower mintage, but that would have to be all proof and commemoratives.that is alot of coins.so i thaught about making a second low mintage catagory. 500,000 coins or less 300,000 or less ............. im loking for a lil feedback on what every1 thinks. also if i want to start a low mintage set in regestery would the
