  1. This is the oldest us coin I still own. I bought it on feb.1st, 1983. it cost me about 30 dollars
  2. After seeing the video above, it's really amazing that all coins were rescued from those melted slabs without any damage.
  3. I'm also glad to hear that your coins weren't hurt in the fire
  4. Thank you for your help, bottlebum. I wanted to start a 'guess the grade of my half dime' thread, but seems like I've already posted the answer.
  5. Yes, I tried to upload my video directly to this forum from my smartphone, but the movie was outsized. And I thought something might change by registering to youtube, but nothing happened.
  6. I just registered youtube and uploaded a video there. And that's all I could do.
  7. I once paid a few thousand$ for a raw bust$ on ebay. I think it was in 2000 and shortly before I joined PCGS forum. I had no clue what I was doing before I joined the forum.
  8. I would settle with not so great looking coins if they were scare. In fact, I have some in my collection whitch are just ok. But if was just ugly, I would pass it even if it was the only opportunity to acquire in my lifetime.
  9. Interesting. So I assume they use the same certification# when they downgrade a coin. Otherwise, they should abolish the old certification# from their database to avoid the confusion.
  10. Did NGC downgrade your coin when you just wanted to reholder the slab?
  11. I just wanted to know because I'm seeing a certain coin graded AU50 by NGC from upcoming Heritage auction. And looking up their auction archive,I can see exactly the same coin graded AU58 by NGC with different certification number. I was just curious if the owner of this coin used downgrade service or he just craked out the holder for upgrade and unfortunatelly got downgraded.
