Hi everyone. Well I just received five tokens back from NGC.Let me tell you I'm happy there slabed. However if you thought the Franklin Press was bad you should see what they did to my Newgate token. Don't get me wrong they do an excellent job. But when they make a massive one like this it causes me problems. I'm disabled. I can't go to shows there is no club by me so I do English auctions. That's the best quality.
Now I just can't get up and go to the post office. Someone has to go for me. To the token. The token I sent was made by P.Kempson. It's a D&H 396a. . Now they put D&H 391. Big difference. 391 has Roman numerals on it. My token has the date 1795 in numbers so big it's huge. It also has a design under it. The buildings bricks are different the facade is differant. Now how they made this one I will never know but it's such an inconvenience for me. There on two seperate pages in the book. The auction house described it as Kempson And the date. One token is on page 140. That's what they put on the label. Mine is on page 141 under Middlesex Newgate token I have been pushing for more people to preserve these and this is the reason they won't send them in. I can't put this up like this. Any Conder collector will laugh saying I told you not to send them in. They can't tell the difference between Roman numerals and a regular date. I use the same book everyone does the Dalton and Hamer book that's were the numbers come from and the pictures. The have 1790's wrong it's 1795 now I have to send this back. I have to. It's going back with the Franklin Press and I will write the page and number for them. I'm upset. It's not easy for me . I only hope more people send them in to preserve history. They deserve the same respect as a gold coin. Some cost more than gold. That's right. Now everyone makes mistakes but these two I can't deal with. More aggravation for me. What bothers me is it has to be done.Paper work phone calls packaging and a letter exposing there error. I have tried so hard to get people to accept NGC and they do this. In will not speak of the others. Yes there were more. I just hope they change these and get them back in a timely fasion. There very good there don't blame the company for one person's mistake. Continue to send them in. They deserve the protection for future genarations. The little time I have left I hope is a mistake. Thanks and don't give up I dont. Mike
