    A huge thank you NGC & NCS

    After seeing the video above, it's really amazing that all coins were rescued from those melted slabs without any damage.

    Any idea how to post video on this forum?

    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.

    Any idea how to post video on this forum?

    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.
  8. I just registered youtube and uploaded a video there. And that's all I could do.

    Biggest Coin Collecting Risk You've Ever Taken

    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.
  10. 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.

    Downgrade service question

    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.

    Downgrade service question

    Did NGC downgrade your coin when you just wanted to reholder the slab?

    Downgrade service question

    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.
  14. If you send a coin to NGC for dawngrade and NGC agree with you, do they send you back the coin in a new slab with different certificate number? Or do they send you back the coin in a new slab and new grade with the same certificate number?
