      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. My first impression is 63
  2. My guess is it will not straight grade. Improper cleaning
  3. Great looking walker..
  4. So the OP knows, I would weight Jason's opinion more heavily over my opinion. The first book on grading I read was Jason's. However I really do not like the coin......No disrespect to the OP
  5. Surfaces look pretty smooth to me, my first impression was 63 with the photos. If the luster is as good as it looks in the picture and with closer perspective of the surfaces, and nothing else shows up I think it may have a chance for a 63+ or possibly 64
  6. All the fine scratches in the fields and on the devices.....I know its gold, so are they more tolerant with gold versus say silver?...Maybe its the magnification. Just looks overly beat up to me with little to no circulation rubs at the high points. I would expect to see greater wear at the high points with the surfaces of the coin that beat up.
  7. Probably wrong but I not sure if that strait grades.....Id go unc details
  8. Like the toning....
  9. Hello & welcome, you will need to post complete high quality as possible pictures both side of the coin before anyone will be able to give you opinions of grade of your coin. Something similar as below
  10. +1........The only value I have found in their price guides is a general rule. The price guides for US coins is what you want to sell them for not buy them for (yes there are exceptions). The world price guides are what you want to buy the coins for not sell them for. They are off by thousands of dollars on some world coins.
  11. I will echo what every one has said on the toning...I'd go MS64
  12. +1......His real money is made putting stickers on the slabs not exploiting a few auctions by knowing whether he's rejected a coin for a sticker. Wouldn't make much sense for him to undermine his legitimate business of grading the graders.......
  13. You nailed that one Jason.....came back VF Details improperly cleaned
  14. I certainly could be way off, but I think the coins surface looks wrong. The luster looks very muted to me.....I would lean towards UNC details improperly cleaned. With those quality of pictures I'm not sure many will chime in with an opinion. I do because I don't get paid for it and I like to see how close I am with my grades compared to the grey beards on the board. Anyway i wish you the best.
