Back on June 2nd I submitted 21 Icelandic Coin for grading that I have collected for a number of years and finally decided to have them graded and did very well with them. I also mentioned that I had around 30 more to send in as well . Its been nearly 3 months now and I sent in a total of 22 more coins.... Most of these coins are from the Republic era that span from 1946 to 1980. What I sent in was a bunch of 10 Aurar from 65 to 73 a few 1 Krona 61 70, 71, both 73's and to my delight a newly acquired ...last week.... a beautiful Gem 1957 1 Krona I sent one in 3 months back and it came home a MS63 which I was happy with because it had a light fingerprint ..this year and the 57 is very very hard to find in MS UNC ...But the new 57 is in incredible condition and it will not surprise me if it gets a MS66 . and the other coins I got after the last submission is a 1959 5 Aurar and again the last one only got a 63 but this one should get a least a 65 These late 50's coins are really tough to find in very nice condition....I just got lucky The other coins are a 50 Aurar and a 66 2 Kronur normal planchet and 5 Kronur and a few 10 and 50 Kronur coins that should all grade around the MS 64 to 66
But The best two are the 1966 Thick Planchet 2 Kronur and the 2000 10,000 Kronur Gold Comm in ultra cameo... I had both of these coins for years but about seven years ago I sold all my Icelandic Comm's because I needed cash and the only one I didn't have was the 1961 Jon Proof ...But a friend in Iceland did come across one that he sold at auction and got over $5000 for it and if I had the money It would have been in my collection...Boyyy The up and downs of collecting ....Its madding
As you can imagine it has been very costly to replace all these coins but its finished now and that makes me happy again.....
I will post the results when I get them ...I did send in the 66 and 2000 gold in Express Tier and they got them today....This coming Friday.........I hope
