  1. The set was deleted because I cannot add ALL coins of this period, only types. What kind of set is it where I can add only a few coins, but not all dates (IMHO this is ridiculous) If I collect these coins by dates and values, why I cannot add them to an adequate list. OK, if you think I'm not right, let see, you have sets with 1 santim, 2 santims and 5 lati, but where are 5, 10, 20, 50 santims sets in this way? Where are the 1 lats and 2 lats sets? Where is the logic? I have all coins (except patterns) of this period, but I can add only types - very strange
  2. Hello, request about the Latvia set. Now available: a) First Republic Type Set, 1918-1939, Circulation Issue b) Santims, 1922-1939, Circulation Issue c) 2 Santimi, 1922 - 1939, Circulation Issue d) 5 lati, 1929 - 1932, Circulation Issue I'd like to ask to add a set almost like first, but not only types: "First Republic, The all dates and all values, Circulation Issue" My coins for this set: 2795446-026 2770990-011 2758706-019 2770990-012 2760076-006 2769170-004 2769170-005 4711172-024 5776582-015 3929783-009 2803545-133 2788076-024 2794039-133 2807639-021 5774620-020 2760076-014
  3. Where I can find this e-mail? And what is TPG?
  4. Another situation with Latvian KM#22.2 coin First time i got from NGC coin labeled like usual KM#22.1 So I paid twice to get correct label
  5. Unfortunately, they don't care about our arguments. For example: I have two coins 10 latu 1996 Endangered Wildlife "Corncrake". As you can see in Krause the edge has inscription. Same description has Latvian Bank's web page. But one of them has mint error with ribbed edge. And my dealer sent this coin like mint error with full description of this coin why it is must be labeled like a mint error. As you can see on the label, according NGC - they are the same coins. By the way ribbed edge coin was send to Latvian bank for attribution, because a long time our local collectors thought - this is a fake, but Bank of Latvia told to our society - this is not a fake - this is mint error. I even have unofficial COA with ribbed edge coin :-)
  6. Another example, now NGC. Latvian coins dedicated to Song festival (Ag & CuNi) and dedicated Latvian ABC (Ag & CuNi) CuNi - Brilliant Uncirculated quality, Silver coins - Proof quality And my friend has two NGC slabs with CuNi coins graded PF
  7. To be honest, sometimes, not very easy to get a clear understanding of designation. For example - Brilliant Uncirculated NGC Glossary said: an adjectival grade which NGC defines as being MS 60 or higher PCGS: A generic term applied to any coin that has not been in circulation. It often is applied to coins with little "brilliance" left, which properly should be described as simply Uncirculated. As you can see, by these descriptions this is the condition of coins. But for example in Europe (in many European countries) it is the quality of the minting, not the condition of the coins. Sometimes these coins are called: "Coins of the improved quality" or "Coins of the improved minting". You can also find a video of the Royal Mint on YouTube, which explains and shows that specially prepared dies are used for the production of such coins. Moreover, if we will take a description of USSR commemorative 1 rouble coins, we will find another type of designation (Very strange designation IMHO). (Please see image below I will translate and try to explain "European style") 1) "ОБ" - Usual circulation coins - These are coins for circulation which we can get from a roll or from coin sack or another package and can call this minting method like "usual strike". We can also call these coins from rolls - UNC coins 2) "АНЦ" - "Uncirculated" - Coins of the improved quality in package - Coins of the improved quality minted using other dies (dies not for a usual strike, but not a proof dies as well). Quality Brilliant Uncirculated. (Please see coin card below) 3) "Полир стар" - Сoins with mirrored field and matte details - Proof quality or Proof-like quality 4) "Полир нов" - Date "1988" on the edge - "NOVODEL" or "Restrike" 19 coins with same design, but Edge inscription has date "1988" and letter "H" (Новодел). Proof quality I just trying to tell - every country has their own "Glossary" and sometimes the same designations can mean different things. In this way very hard to understand some things, especially if English is not your native language.
  8. Dear RWB, I try to explain again. I know how to designate this coin. The question was about situation. Why we have different designations on the slab and on the web page and how it is possible? Why you so confused? Can you imagine I got the answer from other forum AFTER I post this topic here :-) Why I didn't ask PCGS? From professional numismatists on different forums you can get the answer very fast. So I got the answer after one hour after I post this topic here. And I like to communicate with people on the forums. The question was about situation. Why we have different designations on the slab and on the web page and how it is possible? Because this is first time when I see this. Now I got the answer - Thank you! I hope now everything clear.
  9. No I didn't I will add a screenshot from Lithuanian Bank's web page
  10. My name is Mihail. I'm from Latvia and I bought this coin in Riga from a Lithuanian guy at the summer antic fair in 2020 for 5€ By the way, I still awaiting your answer on the e-Bay (kabanjaka my nickname there) from 17th March about Latvian Proof 5 lati coin. Unfortunately, you ignored me.
  11. I agree. English is not my native language, so sometimes my questions not very clear. I apologize for that. First I also thought about human error, but later I received an answer from other forum: "I've got a lot of those, as PCGS has changed the PR/PL/MS/SP definition for a number of coin types over time. For example Great Britain Maundy coins are now PL, I have some slabs that say MS Essai / Prova / Proba coins are now mostly SP, I have some slabs that are MS or PR French coins from "Specimen Sets" are now mostly MS, I have some slabs that are SP As I am not looking to sell any time soon, I haven't done anything about the discrepancies between slab and the Cert Verification." PCGS and NGC both made mistakes. NGC has a few counterfeit slabbed Latvian coins (it was written on another topic). 7-8 years ago fake Estonian coin 3 marks 1926 was graded as XF details by NGC. I saw also an incorrect label on the PCGS slabs (here is the link) and the photo will be at the end of the post (Litas and Centai). So Errare Humanum Est. 2003 coins were issued only in coin sets "proof-like quality" as Lithuanian Bank announced (Some images of the set I will add) Mintage 10 000
  12. You are absolutely right - this is proof coin, but the question was not about that.
