Is this "top pop" quarter mislabeled?

A 1976 business strike quarter from the Philadelphia mint is an extreme condition rarity in MS68.  Modern Coin Enthusiasts:  is this coin mislabled?

YEP!!  -- Probably PF68CAMEO and wrong print button was selected. :roflmao:

Hope you didn't pay a boatload of cash for that. :frustrated:

Buy the coin --- NOT the label. ;)

No, this is not my coin, it is in a competitors set getting THOUSANDS of registry points.... (See "100 Greatest US Modern Coins").

It is one of the obstacles in my long running attempt to obtain the number one set.  Do I have any recourse...or is it up to the owner to be honest and report the mislabeling?

Coinbuf....the reverse is also obviously proof.

Yes,. it is certainly mislabeled. So obvious a mistake by NGC should leave them on the hook for the price difference between a 1976 in MS68 and a 1976-S in PF68 cameo...

It is clearly a mechanical error (something a 6th grader with a redbook could figure out) and the original submitter should have caught it and returned for correction.

I believe that applies to coins that are over graded, and not to labeling errors, which this obviously is.

If the owner has it included in his #1 Registry set, he should remove it from the set.  I guess he could keep it or send it back to NGC for correction, but scoring Registry points for it is flagrant cheating.  
 

Labeling errors happen. I once bought what was described and labeled as a 1952-S FBL Franklin, based on a good price and some fuzzy photos.  When it arrived, it was a 1952-D with a 1952-S label.  I returned it to the seller.
