My new Iceland 1942 5 Aurar PCGS MS-64 RD
I have seen a Ebay seller from Maryland put up around twenty Icelandic 1942 5 Aurar's coins in ANACS holders with a grade range from MS-64 to 66 and from RB to RD but he wants anything from $75 to $250 for the 66-RD. I offered him $150 for the best looking 66 red but would't take it and since you couldn't magnify the image of the coin so there was no way to see the details. I have read in the past that ANACS have graded some coins as much as 2 points higher then NGC or PCGS so all this had me very concern about just how nice these coins really are.
About two weeks ago I was searching the internet and came across a coin site by a Dr Bruder and he had a 1942 5 Aurar MS-64 RD in a PCGS holder and only wanted $59.95 so I snapped it up and it now in my collection . Until these coin were on the net I have never seen a red 5 aurar before I have RB ones but no RD's Someone must have been to Iceland in 1942 or about that time and saved a whole bunch of them.
