  1. Obviously not all are counterfeit and without checking numbers it's hard to tell. Many are likely stolen or illegally obtained. I think I'll check some of the numbers.
  2. Your coins are worth what they sell for right ? If they are sold then they are no longer for sale and worth no more than what was paid. If higher offers were presented they might be worth more but only if you were willing to sell. Of course if you want to sell then they are only worth half of what someone tells you they are worth. Any takers on that one ?

    "Just Having Fun" MS68 PCGS Slab!

    This being an old thread, it would be interesting to see how many more 64-D dimes have been graded in 68 FB since that post in 2016. Let's include NGC pops as well. Also let's see if the 10k value has dropped way down or is PCGS registry 'add on' the real attraction here. Before I look at census numbers for 68 graded coins I would look at the mark free 67 Star coins first. Yes I see there is still only one at PCGS and I wonder how it would compare to the single NGC coin (or is it the same coin) ? I would rather see a comparison to a 67 Star coin because I just don't see this dime in a 68 holder. Dimes are small coins and if those reverse torch problems are hits rather than planchet problems........ game over.

    NORFED Trillion Stars followup

    I think this one is nice. Bought it from his place before problems set in, probably around 2008 ish.

    Result of my first submission

    Coins like this are tough in 67. Like Eisenhower Dollars these are bulk handled even in mint sets and good luck trying to afford one better than yours. Also I think NGC is more strict these days than ever before making it tougher to get these high grades !

    To Track...

    Where I'm at my stuff is quite slow out of Sarasota and sometimes sits in Tampa for 2 days. Sure I track every package but does it help any..... no.

    A huge thank you NGC & NCS

    I guess there's no question those holders are good ones. Glad to hear you have one small part of your life back ! Good luck with your future.

    1964D Prooflike Quarter

    Can't believe it's not designated prooflike..... it looks like a proof !

    Invoice log-in time

    I recently got one received email then another identical received email 2 or 3 days later. And no after that I was not happy a CAC PCGS coin didn't even cross at a grade lower !

    Cleaning up old slabs

    If you plan to keep your coins always get scratch resistant holders for 5 bucks more or 10 bucks for reholder.
  11. I once paid 10X NGC price guide for a color toned Lincoln cent. There is no risk now but when I die is when the risk emerges. For what its worth it CAC'd !

    High roller buyers

    For me Heritage required a charge card on file but Great Collections never asked for any credit line. I like Pay Pal.

    Cleaning up old slabs

    Also note that CAC will resticker coins already verified by them (I believe at reduced or no charge) if they have the same number that doesn't change on a reholder.

    If at first you don't Succeed!

    Sorry for hijacking a good thread

    If at first you don't Succeed!

    Any quotes posted on PCGS forum could be misconstrued as bashing their company not another company. Furthermore if PCGS expects to move forward following a restructuring that was long overdue they must listen to public opinion if they expect to maintain a reasonable market share.

    If at first you don't Succeed!

    I do post there occasionally but it's unclear what rules would be violated when merely identifying these types of coins that PCGS will not designate accordingly.

    If at first you don't Succeed!

    Great story and you sure have good taste ! If you haven't already done so I think you should let them know ATS that there advantages to owning NGC graded coins considering PL designation, Star designation and also the fact that PCGS doesn't grade proof coppers cameo unless they are full red; I'm sure there are more reasons though just to name a few.

    Incuse coinage and the mint

    Would have to be non circulating coin I think. Since we don't make beautiful artistic designs anymore I cannot picture an incuse design where elements would stand up to wear for 20 years or so. Not to many low grade quarter and half Eagles out there to compare is there.
  19. Proof obverse die sounds plausible as there must have been hundreds used. Roger Burdette conceded there's very few mint records of 50 to 64 proof die preparation but I was lucky to get my '64 as minted from an early die state.

    Follow the lead picture post.

    Where did this come from ?
  21. I like that prooflike look. Looks like worn dies polished to remove some problems. Nice coin worth holdering but maybe not fully prooflike.

    For the love of copper

    Several times I have viewed this whole thread and wow there is many nice coppers here.
