  1. I think you should definitely get it slabbed and attributed. Quite a Mint Error!
  2. Amazing - thank you! I'll get a few of my other varieties packaged-up for shipping.
  3. That's an odd decision. What makes this variety different from the other over-assayer in the set already? Is it possible to speak with a Senior World grader about this? I'm trying hard to find reasons to engage with the NGC registry again, but you folks are not making it easy for someone in my area of specialization.
  4. Any update on this request? Thank you.
  5. Thanks Ali E. Is there a list published somewhere of experts that are consulted? I remember providing feedback on the composition of the original Mexico portrait sets around 2008 when they were being built out, but have not been very active at NGC since. There are a handful of specialists in this area and would be great to know who is being consulted. For example, the reference I cited by Brad Yonaka is the most up-to-date view of all the varieties for the Mexico portrait series. Is Brad on the expert panel for NGC?
  6. Hi. I recently certified a new (to NGC) variety of Mexico 8 Reales and would like it added to this complete varieties set: This variety is well known to specialized collectors and has been documented in Brad Yonaka's recent book : "A Variety Guide to the silver and copper coinage of the mexico city mint 1772-1821" alongside with the varieties already present in the set. Here's the coin in question: Please let me know what steps I need to take to have this added, as the online "request to add a slot" resulted in this coin being added in a non-variety 1815 8 Reales slot. Thank you, Roman.
  7. Congrats to all who pushed to get the PCGS coins back into US competitive sets. Too bad world sets are still not allowing PCGS coins.
  8. Thought I was coming back, but with this change not applying to World Coin Sets - no reason to do so. Too bad.
  9. Most definitely a counterfeit. Design elements (portrait, reverse shield, legend) are not even close to the regal king punches used in Mexico. Might be a contemporary forgery, which would still have value to collectors.
  10. Thanks @Abuelo's Collection. I was very happy to add it to the collection. That 1800 is my favorite out of the recent additions.
  11. A few additions from NYINC and a few weeks earlier: 1800 Mexico 8 Reales (PCGS63) 1801-FM Mexico 8 Reales (PCGS64) 1794 Lima, Peru 8 Reales (PCGS63+) 1566 Scotland Ryal of Mary (NGC53)
  12. Do you have a question about this Mexico 50 centavos from San Luis Potosi Mint or just sharing?
  13. Continuing to prune my collection of duplicates. For sale here first for a few days to give fellow forum members a chance to own them before listing on eBay or sending them in to HA. I'll keep updating this post as I go through the sets. 1773 PCGS XF45 - tougher inverted mint mark / assayer initials variety for this year. Nice original XF. **$350** 1797 PCGS AU55 - pop 3/0. Lustrous with golden toning. Some strike weakness and chatter in the fields. **SOLD** 1803-TH PCGS XF40 - key date listed in Krause at $600 in XF (hahaha). While scarce, an original XF like this one is closer to the price i'm asking: **$220** 1804 PCGS AU53 - nice coin with a touch of color and luster. **SOLD** 1799 PCGS AU55: **$350** 1821 PCGS AU50. Pedigreed to Isabel de Trastamara sale in Madrid. **250** 1798 PCGS AU50 **SOLD** 1801 PCGS XF45: Scarcer assayer for this year. **SOLD** 1810-HJ PCGS AU55: A bit of luster, relatively common. **$175** 1813-JJ PCGS AU55 Lustrous and beautifully toned reverse: **$325** 1808/7 PCGS AU58: Scarce overdate, unlisted in Calbeto. Pop 1 with only 1 higher. Dripping with luster. **$375** 1819 PCGS AU53: Toned and lustrous **$220** 1791 PCGS AU53 with nice color: **SOLD** 1805 PCGS AU58 - more lustrous than the image implies. Overall very attractive coin: **SOLD** 1800 PCGS AU58 with lots of luster and just a touch of peripheral color: **SOLD**
