1914-S again!



My suspicions were right afterall!

I received an e-mail from my friend who lives on the left coast! S.F. dealer sent 100 pre screen Franklin's. Only 9 made grade! My dealer friend has "gone to the beach"! That was his term for sending everything to PCGS. He told me that the last time NGC did this(tightened up) he stayed away for 6 months.

Just got back 3 of my NGC registry coins today from NGC. One was sent for the Variety plus. I wanted the FS# put on the holder. This involved a crossover grading as the coins were PCGS. This coin crossed as it should have as it was as solid a MS65 as one gets. The other two PCGS Buff's were sent for an up-grade. Well they didn't get it. One crossed at the same grade and one didn't cross at all. The coin was stained! NGC has gone to calling nice toning stains!!!! The funny thing is I have another Buff that is the twin of this one and it is in a NGC MS65 holder! I have heard of tightening up but they have gone to the silly side, in my opinion! I guess I am headed to the beach as well.
