Bicentennial Quarter Bodybag. Wait What?

16 posts in this topic

So I send this 1976 Bicentennial quarter in for grading and it comes back in a flip with 2 notes attached to it.. Problem is they didn't check any of the boxes off. Do they typically do so? So what did I pay for?? Pictures of coin and 2 notes below.

Did you pay for error coin on your submission form?

I don't why it didn't grade? Should I send it back in and try again or would it get bodybagged again? Sure looks like high grade coin for sure and may have been struck multiple times when looking at the edge..

More than likely it’s not a valid mint error. Probably something man made, like so many of the fantasies in this type of collecting these days. Seems like it has a noticeable seam. Probably a glue job. Therefore it wasn’t certified. And you paid for them to tell you it isn’t certifiable by them. Yes they should have checked a box for reasoning, but perhaps they get as annoyed as the rest of us with this stuff. The only thing they could have checked was other because this isn’t a submission seen often enough to necessitate a dedicated check box.
 

If you are going to focus solely on “errors”, and put yourself out as errorist, you need to learn the minting process and what a true error is. Hint some minor die cracks are of no significance to any real error collector no matter how many names you want to give it.

Nah.. Definitely an out of collar off center strike cladded coin. I have many such coins of this type and year that are graded by NGC..

I'm just puzzled why you waited years to ask this question.  Why didn't you immediately contact NGC?

The top label says it could be encapsulated by NCS as being genuine....

I think they were implying that there was something NCS could improve, but the coin could not be given a straight grade....or even a slightly bent grade.

You can always call them with the submission/cert number of the coin and ask if there are any graders notes or details in general. My guess is that the NGC grader/s identified an issue with the coin, PVC, etc., and recommended NCS conservation, this was declined and the coin sent back. (shrug)
