Roger, without getting into specific individuals....what were the most egregious unethical practices you saw among dealers from the NNP with regards to coin collecting in the 1940's - 1970's ?

Lying about the value of a coin to a novice ?  Someone bringing in a mint marked coin and not seeing the mint mark and selling it as a common Philly ?  Not disclosing that you have a wealthy buyer for a particular coin that you can turn around and flip ?
