or: Finally my insanity pays off!
I previously wrote about a 1990 Prestige proof set that I purchased feauturing a "no S" cent. Now buying ungraded coins over the internet is always a risky proposition, and proof packaging does not always guarantee a spotless coin. However, after examining fairly high resolution photos, I was fairly convinced that the coin would grade PF69UC, and the asking price was what a PF68 or 67UC would bring.
So as the photo below shows, I was correct. However, I only gloat because I have been burned many times before. I feel like I am finally learning this game.
