Sent em in, how will I stack up?

Well I did it, Sent in my Reverse proof Buffalo, 2013 W ASE set, and a 2012 S ASE set for grading.

I bought some grading books and studied via NGC, and other sites. Looked at each coin daily many times, and concentrated on a different part of the coin each time. I also used more than one different magnification each time so as to get a different aspect of each coin. Also under different lighting.

So, in my extreme ignorance on judging grades, here are my guestimates:

Reverse Proof Buffalo--PR70

2013 W Reverse Proof ASE--PR70

2013 W Enhanced uncirculated ASE--SP70

2012 S Reverse Proof ASE--PR69

2012 S Proof ASE--PR70

I also should let you know that I had to send back the Buffalo and the W ASE set to the mint for replacement before I was happy with the returned ones. And the Mint was extremely fast in turn around and also refunded my shipping on all the returned items. From start to finish it was 9 days from when I mailed them till I got the last exchange item, including refund checks.

If my Buffalo and 2013 W set come back as 70s, I will be extremely happy. Wish me luck, as this is my first submission.

Thanks for reading.
