      Try the new NGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      NGC has launched a new and improved NGC Journals! Available on NGCcoin.com, the new NGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new NGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the NGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old NGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the NGC website. Old NGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new NGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new NGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new NGC Journals or go to the new NGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!

        Click Add Journal Entry to add a post to your journal

  1. The key here is: "NGC shall make the sole reasonable determination as to whether this deterioration has occurred." Certain environmental factors are out of their control, but they can make an attempt at correcting the problem if they think that is possible.
  2. Whenever this occurred, it is an excellent development. You can see from the picture how much extra room was present in the older, larger slab.
  3. The definition of a 70 used by the grading services is a coin that appears exactly as it was made, when magnified at 5x. It can have imperfections if those imperfections were on the dies.
  4. Star and CAC are not related. The NGC Star is assigned for eye appeal or PL qualities. An attractive coin, or a PL-obverse coin, can be low end for the assigned grade. The CAC Green sticker denotes a coin that is solid or high-end for the grade. The Gold Sticker indicates the coin is under-graded.
  5. Here are some freshly added coins. Below are thumbnail images; remember that high-resolution images of all coins are available on our website with a single click! 1830 50C NGC XF40 O-101 CAPPED BUST HALF ~ EXCEPTIONAL LUSTROUS ORIGINAL! 1834 50C PCGS XF40 RAINBOW CAPPED BUST HALF DOLLAR ~ AU LUSTER & PQ! 1922-S $1 F12 PEACE DOLLAR ~ CRUSTY ORIGINAL POCKET PIECE! 1949-D 5C PCGS MS66+ PASTEL RAINBOW JEFFERSON NICKEL ~ PQ & RARE GRADE! 1956 50C PCGS MS66 "BUGS BUNNY" FS-401 FRANKLIN HALF DOLLAR ~ BEAUTIFUL MINT SET COLOR! 1962 50C PCGS MS65 SEMI- PROOFLIKE FRANKLIN HALF DOLLAR ~ BLAST WHITE & RARE! 1983-P 25C NGC MS65 LATE DIE STATE "SPITTING EAGLE" WASHINGTON QUARTER!

  6. The lack of obvious polishing lines, and the orange peal rippled gloss, on the featured 1974-D PL 50C gives it the appearance of some of the early 1970s, D-Mint coins believed to be struck on Proof planchets.
  7. Thanks for the comments, PocketArt!
  8. If you have ever seen one of these in person, there is definitely an anomaly beneath the 4, and it does closely resemble the top of a 3. The problem, from what I understand, is that this anomaly appears on roughly half a dozen different dies and is likely, according to experts, a hub defect and not a true overdate (assuming there is a 3 under there). CONECA was doing a study on this a few years ago; I'm not sure what they concluded, but this page is available: CONECA PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDY Hub doubling is not worth a premium, and a hub overdate could be equally valueless, considering it appears on all dies made from that hub (and, in turn, every coin struck from those dies). Yet, designated examples of this variety are very popular and expensive.
  9. This is a heavily damaged, well-circulated, normal 1979-D quarter.
  10. The coin depicts the King the Americans rebelled against, but very little British silver circulated in Early America due to mercantilism, and even fewer Maundy coins would have made it to the colonies. Many George III Maundy coins, especially later issues, did not circulate at all. As for this coin, you can do better. A choice mint state example is around $100.
  11. This 1974-D does appear to be PL or very close. However, it is not the same type of finish as that seen on the 1934-1954 coins.
