    I submitted this question via the NGC site a couple of weeks ago but received only the automatic response. My submission #2735427 was processed by NCS and NGC in Oct. 2017 and shipped to me on Nov. 8. All three of my items received grades as shown below. I noticed that each of them now have grades "DELETED" for some reason. Yet each is still safely encapsulated in my safe deposit box. I'd like to avoid any confusion/concern if I should want to sell these pieces. Can you look into this? Thanks, Bob Yarmchuk #CS012261 for NGC Invoice Number 2735427 LineItem Year Mint Mark Variety/Pedigree Denom.

  12. Normally I favor a nice match between obverse and reverse but this is ok too.
  13. It's taken quite a few years to acquire a nice example of the Johnson token from the Johnson/Perrins bout of 1789.
  14. Papal medal of Pius IX, Anno XXXI (1876) by I. and G. Bianchi (Joseph as Patron). Silver, 44mm.
