  1. I'm interested in how people would respond to the quote shown below that alleges that Teletrade was a dumping ground for coin doctors trying to sell their AT coins that got by the TPGs For now, I would prefer to keep the name of the poster and the forum anonymous. Thoughts?
  2. The 1881 Surrender at Yorktown medal which provided the inspiration for the obverse of the Lafayette Dollar.

  5. I would submit that the person who criticized your for referring to an AU coin as high-end XF has much more to explain than you do.
  6. In my research, the 1900 was considered part of the legend and the Lafayette Dollar is technically undated. That said, I don't remember the source of that information.

    Northern lights collection

    Didn't we discuss that coin on the TCCS forum?

    Die polish lines.

    I was just taking a look at the McClure Collection and look what I found. That is some serious die polishing on a 1923-S MS65 FB Mercury Dime.
  9. Two thoughts about these two sentences. First, you should (attempt to) explain this philosophy to Doug over on Cointalk. He is easily the biggest offender of these two things that I have ever encountered on the coin forums. Second, don't you think that this information about "micro-grading" could have helped us reconcile the grading dispute on the recent MS68 Roosevelt thread? Paul I'll pass on your suggestion regarding trying to explain the philosophy. I don't think that a discussion concerning micro-grading would have necessarily made a difference in the recent MS68 Roosevelt dime dispute. To me, it doesn't matter if the reverse marks were man made or mint-made. Although the obverse is nearly flawless, the reverse flaws keep it out of the 68 category for me. I don't think one has to micro- grade in order to reach that conclusion. I think you should reconsider, the entertainment value of that thread would be absolutely priceless. I wasn't thrilled about the grade of that Rosie either, but I understand why PCGS graded it MS68 and I think that the holistic look of the coin caused the graders to overlook the impact of the reverse flaws, even if they were too severe for others to overlook, including us.

    This topic makes me cringe at the memory of 20 page semantic arguments with Doug on Coin Chat.

    "Just Having Fun" MS68 PCGS Slab!

    For the record, that question was posed to Mumu, not you Wondercoin. As far as the grade of the coin goes, I will trust that both the opinion of the PCGS graders and an extremely knowledgeable Roosevelt collector, and conclude that the assigned grade is deserved.
