About this journal

The second most I have paid for a quarter. This is a 1950 s/d Washington quarter in MS67. All I have seen are various toned and unattractive. The one I found looks like it just came out of the mint. I bought the coin not the holder just like Rick Tomaska says.

I am less confused each passing day

I purchased and received a 1971s Lincoln cent NGC ms66. It would not fit into the NGC box that I keep my certified set in. I fumbled the holder and it popped  open. It had gone through NGC Quality control without being sealed. I sent it to be sealed. I tracked it to Sarasota and it was picked up at the P.O.. I waited for them to seal it and send it back. I lost the receipt from the P.O. and NGC had no record of receiving it. NGC acted like they didn't care and It was no big deal. How can you run

Confused

It is time for me to comment on the Journals. The Journals are not" New and Improved" but" New and Confused". Prolific use of the journals has stopped. The computer" Geeks" have missed the concept of "If it ain't   Broke Don't Fix It". The Journal is not user friendly. It is hard on the eyes. Does not allow easy flow of words. Does not allow a Quick Read and a Quick Comment. Formatted as such, fewer collectors frequent the site. I can only conclude the Journal was changed to save server space. I

PCGS

I collect Washington quarters in NGC and have gotten to the point where I have to buy PCGS and try to cross-over. When I cannot find a PCGS green been I have to try buying and hoping. Sometimes I must buy several PCGS quarters and try to get an NGC at great expense. I bid on Heritage but I caught them bidding against me and found the coin in their inventory later on. Same serial number. I buy in a lot of unsearched mint sets that have been searched. I am a point where I am looking at a lot of ug

D/S

I was lucky enough to buy a 1950 s/d Washington quarter in ms67. What was unusual about it is there is no toning what so ever. It looks like it was minted today. Almost all are moderate to heavy toning. They sell on Ebay for between $1800 and $2500 with varying degrees of toning But I paid more than twice that just for the beauty.

ROYGBIV

I like to see a Halo of color around the edge of US coins. Some like to use the term rainbow loosely. I call it a rainbow when most or all of the colors of the color spectrum are present. Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo and violet.

Washington Quarters

Still looking I am still looking for 1952 P&D and 1953 P&D with no toning. Since they are so common I would expect them to be on Ebay and Heritage all the time. I am on the NGC registry so they must be NGC or PCGS MS 67 CAC.............Daniel McMunn

Really # is nuts

Everybody has a choice to belong to the NGC registry or not. I am in the NGC Registry to enjoy collecting and compare my coins to the rest of NGC collectors. It shows # is not very smart leaving a paper trail if he chooses to make good on his threat. Too bad he didn't give his address as well so he can be held accountable if anything happens. He just needs to relax and take his Meds. Everybody has a choice to belong to NGC registry or not. I am in the NGC Registry to enjoy collecting and compa

PCGS

WE change how our sets are acquired. I just bought a microscope camera to make better pics. Though PCGS holders are Grandfathered in, I can't even upgrade my PCGS pictures. Terryah just sent his entire sets to Heritage to liquidate. I am sad to see him go. He is a very honest collector and I have had a very satisfying experience competing with him.................Daniel McMunn

Comment on The Honey Badger

Turn around time at NGC Do you really think NGC and PCGS actually takes us small fry in turn when Mr. Tomaska or any other TV customer sends in hundreds or thousands to be graded? I watch My submissions languish in finalized and shipped for 14 days. Each time I call to track I am told they have been mailed but the tracking number is invalid?..........

Details

Coins that come back Details If you enjoy buying raw coins and having them graded you need to invest in a scope to look for hairlines and other defects. You can get one on Ebay for about $150. Most coins you purchase can be sent back if you are not satisfied To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

Obverse scratches

Scratch--Obverse detailes When I started my raw Washington Quarter set, I bought only BU coins. I paid a retail price for most of them. As I completed the set I decided to grade the keys. The Lions share of the Keys were graded Unc-details obverse scratch. Though I contributed to this problem I was upset at the number of Ebayers that did not disclose this. I am wiser now. I speculate the scratches on most came when removing the quarter from the 2x2 and dragging it against the staple. Are there

NGC point change

+++++++++ & *********** As I waited for my "36 proof quarter, the points went crazy. I was under the impression tone free coins as close to the condition they came out of the mint was desirable. The recent point system shake-up moved me from #2 to #3 and 30,000 points behind. I am catching up to my old position. To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here.

1937D Washington Quarter

Worth I sent a raw 1937d Quarter to NGC about 10 months ago and it came back MS67. Is this an Auction House coin or an Ebay Coin? To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.
