You have to read the rest of the story to find out...

I received the email today, that my coins have been shipped. NGC received my coins back on February 13th, so that is only 30 calandar days and if you take out the weekends make it only 22 "business" days. This is well behind the NGC stated turnaround time of 29 days that was posted when they received my coins.

Not wanting to be one that always gives a thorn, because I have grumbled in the past about delays... this time is different. The turnaround was well beofre what I had expected and I thank NGC for doing a fine job.

The grading was pretty close to what I had hoped for. A 1938-D Buffalo I had hoped would grade MS67 turned out to be a 66. A 1952 Franklin that I thought was Proof 66-cameo got the Proof 66 but not the cameo. When I receive those coins, I will ship the Franklin back for a designation review. I really believe it should be a cameo, so does the dealer I bought it from.

So all in all, I was happy this time around.

Now.. I suppose you want to know who won my little contest. Only one person had todays date... I think I should have Skeesters permission before I mention his name as the winner, so I will ask... wait..wait... too late. Yes.. Skeester is the winner of the PCGS COllectors Club ASE graded MS68.

It was alot of fun with the comments and some of the short stories that you collectors shared. I enjoyed it and will enjoy it even more when my coins arrive in the mail in a few days.

If coin collecting is your hobby, it should be fun and exciting. You are the only one who can make that happen. I shall be sending in more coins soon. Perhaps I shall have another contest.
