  1. Once the agreement was reached to clean the coins and conservation was performed, they should be polished and sent back for approval right ?
  2. Pf 65 RB Cam. Looks NGC and there's one 64RB Cam and one 65RB Cam, I cheated and looked.
  3. Yes I believe that thread is one that was removed after I received several responses. Although I cannot confirm my comment, there have been several poofed threads I responded to recently. Maybe it is my mistake.
  4. I use a different name ATS I guess because I have a different attitude there. I started here and always enjoyed both but some threads over there get 'poofed' for no known reason. Just the same I appreciate opinions from people that think like I do.
  5. Maturity level here and ATS is generally good but there are a few who cannot accept change. I was like that a while back then realized that the world is not waiting on me to respond. I was one who resisted holder change to edge view type. Now all of my NGC coins are in edge view holders. I do appreciate being able to add my opinion as I feel the need and will request NGC services in the future.
  6. Looks like a superb accurately graded coin with that never dipped luster to me. Nice catch since sounds like you were waiting for it. If you don't mind me asking has your set put you in a squeeze financially over the years? I'll admit my set has pinched me here and there but have no reservations whatsoever.
  7. CDN prices are meaningless to me because I'm not a dealer. And since I rarely sell to dealers and fully expect to pay more for coins with great eye appeal why bother with such irrelevant pricing information. These price lists do not accurately reflect values for my coins, they only serve to guide a dealer in acquiring great coins at lowball prices.
  8. Sorry if I misled anybody. I consider a date as a variety within a set in my '36 to '42 proofs. In Jefferson nickel proofs I consider 1939 and 1940 a collectible variety but not the 1941 'no AW' half since most have little or no trace of designer initials. One could go on and on with varieties but I just really meant that hole fillers don't need to be in an album, basically any set including registries. The nature of the words 'hole filler' sound like folder or album in a literal sense.
  9. If one has a certified collection do we count a missing variety (slab) as a hole ? And no I'm not buying filler coins that just tie up funds that could be used to acquire legitimate coins.
  10. Great acquisition and looks original to me. Why not MS 66 ?
  11. I assume you are aware your coins will come back in new holders with different cert. #
  12. I will post when my W reverse cent claim is solved. I see my order was placed on 6/24/19. Oh and yes this is how it was offered:
  13. After returning my silver proof set with wrong W cent I then received another silver proof set with no W cent. Filed non receipt claim and now waiting on my W reverse proof cent. Customer service said 4 to 6 weeks and its been at least 6 weeks now so I guess I'll call again !
  14. Don't forget a 50 or 51 proof set with a Franklin half
  15. As usual nice presentation Charmy. Cool WWll pattern cent too. Is that one yours ?
  16. Its gonna be a tough acquisition for slab collectors
  17. While I am not a dealer, I would guess some of these 'middle of the road' coins make good conversation points in this day and age with all the fourth party opinions out there. In other words if this 90-S is solid but not high end for the grade Maybe it's a good candidate for a grading set !
  18. I haven't been involved in Registry sets for a while although I still have many of my coins. A trip to the registry showed PCGS coins still there with points and ranking. So I found out that if I go to Collectors Society I can see how my coins would rank without PCGS corruption. Of course I own PCGS coins too but there are some glaring examples as to why registries should be limited or restricted. Look at silver proof Ikes; its a small 5 coin set and you would find top ranking set with all PCGS Pf 70 Deep Cameo coins. But likely the finer known coins are in NGC Pf 69 Star Ultra Cameo holders ! NGC hasn't graded Pf 70 coins in most of those slots. Why do you think that is ?
  19. Think what you will about Dan Carr's Peace dollars and never mind his rendition of the original Broken Sword reverse, you wont appreciate that either. Of course you can set aside the fact that they have held their value well over past few years when many other issues continue to fall. I think the 1917, 1918, and 1919 Peace dollars make an attractive set. I look forward to the 1920 coin when it becomes available.
  20. I paid around 200.00 for mine on ebay in original DCarr flip.
