  1. Very well done. I have been to one show years ago and ran out of energy after one day. Tons of fun. Thanks for the report and good job, you deserve it.
  2. I can't believe she didn't hang up on him. Did he think this would help his coin get a better grade?? I agree, treat everyone with respect. Everyone. There is no need or reason to be rude. Way to much of it going around. I have called them many times and always was treated well by them. They have even helped me fill out my substitution forms. Well, really they filled it out for me over the phone and I just entered the info. Come on people. Be nice. Thanks Mike..
  3. You can't beat the NGC Edge View Holders. Many tokens have words on the edge and that is the only way to see them. Even those make it hard to view but it is the best out there. Thanks..

    Tincture in Heraldry

    Great blog Gary, as usual. I didn't know any of that. You certainly explained it all very well. Great photos. Thanks.
  5. They turned it into a gimmick for sure. Both the mint and PCGS. It reminds me of when I was a kid and searching for that special toy in a cereal box. To NGC's credit, they allow this blog. My opinion.I could be wrong.
  6. That is one beautiful token. I don't know how anyone can even begin to grade something that old. Pretty good history already, from you. I'll be watching and waiting for the next journal on this token. Thanks!
  7. I am a fan. I want one of his Peace dollars for the High Relief and the broken sword. My opinion. I could be wrong.

    A Curious Strategy

    EBAY is an alternate world. Our rules, here on earth, don't apply.
  9. "Pieces of art in copper and bronze." That is one of the best descriptions of these tokens that I have read. Both my wife and I have started collecting some modest ones. All we buy are from England. You are correct in that they sell the best..I have seen some other photos of the chest they were stored in. Works of art in beautiful wood.What a collection they would make.. It is sad that the graders here don't seem to understand how they should be graded and their D&H numbers as well as the writing on the edges. The wrong D&H number can mean a fortune. Thanks Mike. I always learn from you.
  10. Thanks for all the updates Mike. I looked it up in my copy of the English book. It's right where you said and the D&H number you stated. Get it right NGC. Facts are facts. just because it's been mis-labeled for years, doesn't mean it can't be corrected now. Good luck on your quest..
  11. Good luck on your future quest. It can take quite a lot for a company to change it's mistakes. Let us know what is happening..
  12. That is quite a glaring mistake. It drives me crazy when they miss identify a coins obverse and reverse. They can't seem to get that right on World Coins. Just once I would like to get a Mexican coin back correct. I will be sending in a 1982 DDO Libertad. I bet it comes back as a DDO.

    An Accessible Type Set

    Very nice set. I'm going to check on these. Thanks.
  14. I am like you, disabled and don't get out much. However my wife does. I will be watching for one of these quarters. I don't expect to get one, with such a small number released, but who knows?
