Ok, NGC just posted my submission results.....drum roll..............argh!!! Did better than last time but was hoping for better!!!
So lets run through this:
The 1st one, the baht I expected to graded and it did, XF is fine, it'll replace a duplicate lower grade one so I'll sell the lower grade one. Very happy
The 2nd one, I expected either really low grade or maybe details.....glad it got a grade, very few population numbers, of course I'm happy
The 3rd one, the 1/16 I didn't expect the MS grade! Its my highest graded one so I can sell 1 or 2 lower grade ones. Very happy
The 4th one, I expected higher than a VF but will take a straight grade.
#5-10. Geesh I didn't expect that at all. I especially thought #7,9, and 10 were nice and would grade! Alas, NGC thought it was AU but details due to environmental damage and or a cleaning that I missed!!! Thats the main thing I've noticed from other submissions of thai coins.....so many get environmental damage or are cleaned!! This is why I sent these coins in, I want them preserved but also hoping that they don't get that dreaded details. Live and learn!
#11-19 everything graded yay! I was hoping that some of the 1899 1/2 att would get higher than a 63/64, they looked very nice, I had hoped for 65 or higher!
So my first submission I sent in 19 thai coins, 11 straight graded, 8 got details
My 2nd submission (this one) I sent in 19 thai coins, 13 straight graded, 6 got details.
I did better but want to do much better! Will there be a submission #3, maybe if I can come up with 19 more thai coins that need submitting. I try to buy slabbed but if I do get a great deal on some raw ones I will pick them up and put them aside for another submission but its gonna be a while as I'm very cautious due to many getting details!
