  1. While I have not sold any through them yet I have purchased from them for several years. I have always like their turn around times, and the world coins I collect I can usually get them at real good prices as compared to ebay. Yes, they do start some of the world coins high, but I always assumed that may be more the seller wanting a certain starting price. I have also found them to be very accurate with their in hand assessment of coins that I have sent emails on and won. I have talked to Ian several times on the phone, and he has always been very willing to talk about what ever topic I called about. He left a great impression with me. This is one of my favorite coins I got off GC.
  2. The pictures not the best to try and grade from, but I'd go 64 with a good chance at 65 on this one.
  3. I'd call it 64 possible 65
  4. Very nice cameo look to it!
  5. My first impression is 63
  6. My guess is it will not straight grade. Improper cleaning
  7. Great looking walker..
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Probably wrong but I not sure if that strait grades.....Id go unc details
  12. Like the toning....
  13. 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
  14. +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.
