About this journal

First submission despite having been collecting coins/been around coins for such a long time and being a member here and across the street for over a decade!

I first started collecting US coins but now consider myself a darksider (collecting world coins, specifically thailand). I have a custom set on the registry as it includes both pcgs and ngc coins. A majority of older thai coins are raw and many are in poor condition/damaged. Its been a challenge getting slabbed coins as their aren't too many, but its been fun looking and acquiring slabbed coins for my collection. I have also been getting raw coins with the intention of submitting them..........well I pulled the trigger and signed up as a member and then filled out the forms and sent in 19 coins that I hope will grade and be added to my custom registry!! Waiting is the hard part now!!

My 2nd submission to NGC!

I chronicled my first submission and the outcome here a few months ago, well I just mailed off my 2nd submission! Again, 19 coins and all from thailand. Last time I submitted 19 thai coins, I had 11 graded, 8 details. There were some coins I expected to get details and some I did not expect. I used the experience I learned from the last submission to carefully inspect my current submission..........hoping for no details grade!!!

NGC Reults and my take on it

So I got my NGC results back............I had been eagerly waiting since May as I wanted to add these coins to my collection. I was positive but also prepared myself that I could be disappointed and to not become bitter. I have talked to some collectors who sent coins to NGC and every coin came back details, these people sent me pictures and I could say that NGC was correct, the coins were cleaned. One particular collector was so upset that he said he would not send to NGC anymore and may send t

Scheduled for grading with a twist!

Today my invoice says "Scheduled for grading", I click on the invoice number and it has a format of the coins I sent. Look below, here is the problem, spotted an error on Line 11. They call it a 2A, should be a 4A. Thats like calling a morgan silver dollar  a walking liberty half. Big difference in size and value! Called up NGC customer service and spoke to Kevin who was helpful and gave me his email and told me to write what the invoice # is  and the problem and he would let the grading side kn

Obsessed with status of submission

Anyone (first time submitter or have submitted before) obsessively check their submission tracking info daily? I find myself daily looking at submission tracking to see what the status is. Mine recently got tracked as received and I find myself checking daily to see the progress! Can't wait to see it go to Schedule for Grading and so on.
