Question number one!
Why does it take so long to grade each coin when they know all 298 are to be given MS 70 first day of issue.Question 2 is
what justifies the first day of Issue! This is why NGC is so respected they dont play the these games!
Not good news
I just called the mint on my order which was placed and confirmed on jan 22 at 12:05, 5 minutes into the order time of noon est. They informed me all orders are now on hold and none will be sent out before April 24, and then only the ones accepted by the mint on Jan. 22. the rest will be 3 to 6 months. What a let down!!!
On grading MS business strikes!
I would also like why NGC has placed a lid on the grades for many of the morden coins. I am sure, we send in to NGC just as nice of coins as PCGS recevies and yet for example ngc has topped out state quarters at ms 67 and pcgs grades many 68s, also the sms set which would grade PCGS sf 69 are NGC 67s, not to mention the Dollars you cant hardly make a NGC 67 and PCGS are all over ebay! What is the deal are they handing over the modern business altogether to PCGS!
I know some of my nice Morgans are in body bags.
Wait a minute, My morgan has a scratch on it, it is returned in a body bag, not a slab because it is altered after it left the mint, thats one ,wrong color same thing, no slab,but if I send in a waffle , I get slabbed, No way! whats next gold plated state quarters if you send in a 1,000.The T.V. guys can make thier own rules I guess. How about first smashed Waffel. O'well we will see.Have fun collecting,I do thats the point.
best to you al
