Packed up my next 5 item submittal. Bumps up my total to 16 items in the queue at NCS/NGC.


I was filling out my NCS submittal form and reviewing both the Medcalf & Russell and Hibler & Kappen reference books to correctly describe/identify each coin entered on the form.


Upon reading the HK-723 description I became curious. The words "...except obvious die variety." was an invitation to compare my HK-722 against my HK-723.


I looked at each medal individually with my loupe. I then did a spot comparisons between each looking for differences. Then they popped out at me.


Thank you Hibler & Kappen for the conservative nondescript description. Picture comparison is below.


I also rechecked the NGC census and the current population for the HK-722A and HK-722B. The difference is the bright bronze vs antiqued bronze finish of the medal.


HK-722A population is 1. HK-722B is not even listed (I take it to mean 0 population). Also, HK-722 (in nickel-silver) has a population of 1.


I listed the medal as a HK-722B on the form. Hopefully, NGC will be on my side on the antiqued bronze finish.
