Too tough on grading
Well I guess its time to quit submitting coins to NGC until their graders get there heads out of their rear ends and start properly grading coins.
Ironically I sent in 4 1948 P&D franklins with super strong strike and FBL all 4 were blemish free not a single mark. the first 1948P graded out MS63 FBL, The second AU58 amazing since these coins came from mint sets, The first 1948-D rejected for scratches and the 2nd 1948-D MS64 FBL again all four coins blemish free, ful
ICG's not for me, thats like using ANACS might as well toss money in the fireplace
I know I see plenty of icg coins on ebay most of which don't sell very well at any auction platform.
As for the error's I'm trying to get some sort of resolution. Honestly I think the grader was having a bad day and just had a bug up his A** when he graded my coins or had bad information because their is no way several of these coins graded MS64 when they should be MS67 due to the strong strike and like 3/4 ve
Talking with the director
After talking with one of the directors at NGC It appears that my 20 coins will be re-examined by a professional namely the guy that wrote the book on lincoln cents (guide to lincoln cents) for a possible new 1971-S variety and a regrade on the 1970-S at FS-030 overdate and the 5 1960-D SMall/Large Date namely the two that were already previously graded small over large date to see if they made a mistake on the originals or my order plus a partial refund of fees.
20 error coins submitted knocked Down!
I'm totally in shock, I just heard the lamest escuse in the world from NGC.
I sent in 20 lincoln cents various years for error submission along with FS number designations, two of which were cracked out but already certified through NGC but felt the grade should have been higher. Today the grades came thru with no designations plus utterly bashed and hammered on the grades were talking trash level. even the two cracked out didn't even make it.
I sent in twenty coins recently of Susan B's and 1969 - 1985 quarters, After very impressive results from grading most above MS66 with several making MS67 including the one and only NGC graded MS67 1969-P washing quarter with none higher in other words TOP DOG.
Ever feel like yelling out to the world with joy?
Its just really satisfying that all of your hard work searching through literally hundreds of coins just to find the perfect coin or coin's that appeals to you.
NEW KENNEDY VARIETIES
Well I guess its time to dedicate all of my coins to NGC for grading from now on. I sent in several 1976-D Kennedy's with 9 stars under independence hall instead of the usual 13 for PCGS mint error submission back in february of this year. I waited patiently until two weeks ago and then made a call to PCGS to check on the errors to see why they haven't been finished since almost two months have since past.
I was given absolutely nothing but excuses and was promiss
Yes I too have noticed that my last 2 submissions currently at NGC have gone through alot quicker than previous orders. which makes me extreemely happy. Especially since I have 2 orders at PCGS that have been there for 2 months now and everytime I call all I get is arrogance and the statement next time use the regular service for $30.00 per coin for 15 day turnaround. Usually I reply why would I do that when NGC can do it for 1/2 the price in 12 to 15 days.
I don't think
My PCGS Certified 1969-S Doubled Die
This is the newest and finest of two 1969-S DDO pennies just added to my collection Check it out. I'll have to post two photos in separate journals. The certification is 09806144
My oh my what to buy!
I think many of the modern coins seen today could be quite valuable in the future. I especially like Susan B's, Sacs Pennies, franklins and kennedy's along with MS Gold bullion eagles. Many of these coins in MS65+ in the raw can be bought for near face value through various sources.
My Key picks are 1980-1981(P/D/S) + 1999 Susan B in MS state
Sacagawea 2000-present (P/D)in MS
All years of franklin halves MS63+
Ikes especially 1971-73 in MS63+
Kennedy's up till 1
I just received a unopened roll of 1961 Franklin halves that I bought off ebay.
Of course I opened the roll for full bell lines which there were 8 of them.
Anyway I see some really strong Doubling on the obverse in the motto and date. All letters shifted down in the words "IN GOD WE TRUST" visable to the naked eye as well as very strong doubling of the 1961 in the date. In my roll were 14 very strong doubled coins 6 of these were full bell lines, these coins will be going to NGC this w
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+
