      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

        Commenting on another user's Journal is easy. After selecting a journal to read, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the field where you may enter your comments and see the comments others have posted.

  1. Interested in the coin for my Australian set, but not at this price. Let me know if it doesn't move and you are willing to go lower.
  2. I agree with Conder about the surface condition ... very unusual, and unlike any I saw when I lived in Thailand. I also don't recognize the dynasty mark although if you sqint right you might convince yourself you can see a Rama II mark. If it is real, it would be near the 2 1/2 Tamlung size, but even with the wear(?) it is still to light (by 20g) given that you can see the markings. Unfortunately, that "bullet" size came much later than Rama II's reign.
  3. You have a real rarity there .... in fact, so rare it isn't even listed in my Krause catalogues (tongue in cheek comment). As far as I know there are none ... perhaps it's a 1/2 pound (same as a half sovereign size)? If so it would be marked as such on the reverse. It can't be a Krugerrand as they weren't made before 1967 and the 1/4 ounce versions before 1980. If you can please post a picture, front and back.
  4. How huge is "huge"? Weight would also be helpful
  5. As Conder101 said, it is a low value coin (at least monetarily) and as such keeping it in a safe is not typically necessary (in fact it might harm it with moisture over time if not ventilated) .... instead, I suggest you keep handy to share it with people along with the Biblical story or use it as a personal spiritual talisman. Enjoy.
  6. awww
  7. A bit, but then it is a new system. Best I can suggest is to click the address (not in search bar) to the previous location and then work forward again ... In this case the "Home NGC - NCS - PMG Forum World and Ancient Coins New Software - Issues" under the big CGC
  8. You got a reply from two very polite and knowledgeable people. I predict you will be waiting an extremely long time before you get the answer you have obviously already decided upon. Cheers.
  9. Yarm, I would have to imagine it has some verbiage on the "third side"....
  10. That is indeed a beautiful coin, dare I even say classic! However, this is not the place do make such a request if you want it to be seen by those who you need .... try reposting your request in the "NGC Registry" section. Cheers! CSV
  11. Looks similar to one I made.... but it's not.
  12. Nope .... it's a fake.
  13. Hi Stewart, I would imagine the penny is real, but the surface has been altered. I sort of remember eons ago that people used to "silver" US cents using mercury. Can't really say without looking at it in hand....
  14. I went this year for the first time ... IMO it's well worth the time and money to attend, and everyone should take the course on counterfeit detection ...
  15. There are so many "1930" gold Uruguay 5 Pesos being offered nowadays. My old Krause shows a mintage of ~100,000 ..... is this now being restruck as a bullion piece?
