Respectfully, I disagree....
Personally, I never visit the chat boards. Like any other chat room, they tend to be full of clutter and mindless prattle and very seldom have anything to do with coins.
Most all of the collectors will visit this home page, so the chances are somebody, somebody who doesnt mind answering questions, will see it and respond.
This is like a phone call, you dont HAVE to answer... you dont even have to read the post. There are many collectors who enjoy sharing their knowledge. This gives those collectors a forum to do just that. Perpetuate our hobby.
This is, of course, just my humble opinion, but then again, who am I but just another collector.
This coin is a "42 Merc with nice clear ddo at date. Sent it to PCGS but they wouldn't verify the DDO. Guess they couldn't see it, but we all do!!
