LET'S HAVE A LITTLE FUN

Hello Everyone,

I received my latest order from NGC two days ago with yet another mislabeled coin inside.  

This was the second time I trusted what customer service had told me, "the graders will catch the mistake". It is also the second time they did not catch it.  Leaving them now with a perfect record of zero for 6. 

And as you probably already guessed they had entered my newest order with 4 mistakes again (not understanding that the "S" is very important when it comes to clad vs SILVER coins).  So I went back to the old way, like the 15 or so times before, and I called in to ask for the corrections before they were missed again. That phone call was NOT fun in the least bit.  Fun......humm.....ok, back to having fun.

This is a picture of both sides of my latest headache.  Can anyone out there guess when this coin was minted?  I have two clues:

1)  It is NOT the year NGC graded it at.

2)  Queen Elizabeth wasn't put on coins until the year 1953. (What makes it funny is that this is true in like 35 countries!!!)

World coins seem to be a bigger challenge than those from the US.

Any luck on getting the varieties given in McCammon on the label??:nyah:

Minted in 1954 correct?

Did they list the 1945 date during the entire submission process? I only ask because I wonder if someone in quality control just read the back of the coin and "corrected" the label. It is an interesting piece nonetheless.

WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER!!!!

To answer your question, yes, it was listed as a 1945 through the whole process. This coin was one of the "mistakes" I was reassured that the graders would change and there was nothing I needed to do but just be patient.

Now you, "coinsandmetals", know more about this coin than the "paid professional" that graded it.

Sorry, I have no prizes to hand out. But I can give you one of these....xD

Graders do the grading, someone else is in charge of generating the label.  Always, always, always check your submission as soon as you see it on-line and call or email for corrections as soon as possible.  Whatever happens in quality control does not involve catching mistakes on the label.

Then they should change the name to "final inspection" or something generic. The term "quality" implies making sure that everything, including accuracy of the label, is correct, and there are no mistakes or flaws anywhere else.
