  1. I have no problem at all with this software or on the NGC website; My computer makeup is: Intel 7 - 4790 CPU, 32 GB fast memory, NVidia GeForce GT-730, Win 7 64 bit. I use Internet Explorer. Never had a problem with this site or any other.
  2. "it's real!!!" Are ya sure about that? Better have someone look it over. The 5 is odd as CRAWTOMAIC said.
  3. Welcome to the NGC side; glad you came over.
  4. Nice score B.L.21; hope they work out for you. I am envious; I always wanted to collect some ancients but never knew where to start.
  5. I personally wouldn't buy one but there are some that will. Are they worth it? The buyer determines that.
  6. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is not authentic. I may be completely wrong; the old eyes aren't as good as they were. Now here's one reason for my guess: The mintmark. Here is a pic of an authentic 1889 CC mint mark: And here is a 100% guaranteed fake 1989 CC reverse (Pic #2) As I said - I'm just guessing but a 1889 CC that nice and not slabbed?
  7. I only own one civil war token but I hope to find more like this:
  8. Some things never change. I am "slightly amused".
  9. I have several ANACS, IGA, etc photo grade certs but yours is the first I've seen without a grade. I believe yours is from 1979 mine are from the mid 80's. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. https://www.cointalk.com/threads/anacs-photo-certificates.246560/
  10. 'Obsolete' currency. There's lots of it from both Northern and Southern banks. Check EBay section - Paper Money - Obsolete Currency. Some are scarce and costly.
  11. Filbullion: I always use the US Postal Service. I ship the coins Priority Mail Flat Rate Box w/Insurance. From Pennsylvania to Sarasota, Florida takes 3 to 5 days and you get a Tracking Number that will tell you the progress of your package. I have heard of coins lost in the mail BUT - I have never had a lost shipment in all the years I've sent coins for grading. NGC and PCGS are pretty good in telling you when your order arrives and it's status throughout the grading process. Make sure you c heck out the NGC web site for a lot of valuable information. And don't forget - if you have a question - ask here.
