  1. Toned coins on eBay use with black light

    That's make a sense..
  2. Toned coins on eBay use with black light

    Sure thing, you can notice the black light is on around the slabs. it's on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1887-P-MORGAN-PCGS-MS65-CAC-GORGEOUS-TONED-OBVERSE-VERY-PQ-LOOKS-66-EASY-/152617063040?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=meWMKpBaWNfM76v3O3%2BRxLLVn3U%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc http://www.ebay.com/itm/1881-S-PL-MORGAN-TONED-in-SAFE-GUARD-SLAB-Graded-as-PROOF-LIKE-FROSTY-/362036756793?hash=item544b128139:g:-P8AAOSwq~tZWVYJ http://www.ebay.com/itm/1882-NGC-MS-64-Morgan-Silver-Dollar-Stunning-Rainbow-Metallic-Toning-WOW-/122590798381?epid=1537639126&hash=item1c8afb222d:g:pJwAAOSwiA9ZX7J-
  3. I noticed that more and more sellers start to use the black light on toning coins often now on eBay? My opinion, I don't like the idea of using the black light on toning coin to pull in more bidders/buyers. I think the shade of colours will show different between black light and natural light; such as, natural light will show that the toning is darker than it shows with black light, I think.

  7. 1909 V.D.B. Lincoln matte proof possibility?!

    Nope, not even close.
  8. Gotcha, thank you Conder for clarifying!
  9. Thank you for help! I find it quite odd because the mintage for the 2 Mark was 13,000 and I have 1 proof South Africa 5 Shillings that was mintage 1,200. It's $40 for proof. That's quite interesting.
  10. I am not into the foreign coins, so I want to ask you guys about the coin that I had. I have pretty many Prussia coins and few others that I am able to find an information from Google except for 1 coin, it's 1894-A Neu Guinea 2 Mark. Any of you knows about this coin and value? It actually looking more of proof than uncirculated (maybe proof-like) in hand. I only know more about the American coins than the foreign coins, so please help! Thanks!
  11. Curious Acquisition: 1943-S PL Washington Quarter

    The NGC census showed that there are only 2 1943-S PL, one is yours - MS64PL, and other is graded at MS65PL. That's pretty obvious that they knew that your quarter is a business strike. That's a nice coin, by the way!
  12. NGC Certs 1942/43 Wrong Planchet Cents

    It's interesting story. However, it makes me wondering if Mint employee accidentally (may be on purposed) to put the foreign planchet on belt or in press machine? I couldn't see how it is possible that the foreign planchet gotten in the US Mint building.. I hope someone can explaining about it.
