  1. It still is. PCGS has become particularly inconsistent and wild with some of their grading of non-USA coins.
  2. It is not a 5 sovereign. It is a 2 kilogram hunk of gold with nominal value of £2000.
  3. Are you referring to the 2019 £2000 2-kilo (64.3 oz troy) Una and the Lion? With a mintage of only 4 pieces, I’m quite sure there is nothing all that special about a COA#1. I think you are confusing this with the smaller issued gold pieces. It’s not a bargain at the price noted, but it is nowhere near the most absurd or overpriced numismatic item I’ve seen.
  4. A profound contribution to these boards, as always @MAULEMALL
  5. I've been having problems with CoinTalk loading very slowly for over a week - and today, it won't load at all. I get a "504 Gateway Timeout" error. Anyone else having these issues?
  6. Here is my date set of the Upper Canada St. George Half-penny Tokens - they were issued in years 1850, 1852, 1854, and 1857. It took me 8 years to put together a nice date set of half pennies. I have a couple dups, but I'm okay with that.
  7. Thanks for the update @MarkFeld! Smartest decision I have seen from a Floridian in some time. There are more important things than coins...getting a nice coin is not worth dying for (or killing others).
  8. Electronic Membership is only $26 - or $57 if you want the print membership.
  9. Beautiful medal. For others: https://www.medalcollectors.org/membership/medals The bronze is $150, the silver is $450.
  10. By what means would the growth happen? Continually changing plastic formulations to encourage resubmissions? Continued gradeflation to encourage resubmissions? Convincing the rest of the world besides the US that slabs are useful? The slippage of PCGS in terms of their consistency in grading has been noticeable the past 2-3 years. I also believe their fundamentals are pretty flat, so the recent huge uptick in their stock price is not justified. Like much of the stock market at the moment, it's being propped up artificially by policy. IMO the 3-5 year horizon has a bubble a comin'! I'm
  11. There is also one in the "World" section: https://forums.collectors.com/discussion/1047737/collectors-universe-bought-privately-by-investors-group-what-affect-do-you-think-this-will-have I rarely leave the "World" section on CU forums because they are a train wreck of bickering completely non-numismatic threads.
