  1. I was very sad to read about his passing ATS. I used to give the guy a hard time about owning every Barber coin there stuff. Now I'm just sad. My condolences to his family. jom
  2. I find it hard to believe CAC is going to ignore. It's even harder to believe TomB is listed as a "newbie". How'd that happen? jom
  3. Sorry..I was not referring to the owner that was "piled" on someone that the owner had talked to who told him (before all of this) the coin was NOT a proof. Several afterward in the thread kind of piled on...turns out he was right. Sure...mistakes happen and it seems to me if the coin is sent back and correct it's a "no harm done" as far as I can tell. And as far as I'm concerned if the 1% fee was never paid then it had to have been a typo/error. jom
  4. So what is the reason here? Was it a print error or did they screw up? The first part of the thread mentioned someone told the new owner it was NOT a proof. This particular individual got piled on after it was disclosed that PCGS graded it a proof. It then turns out this guy was right all along...too funny. Board members should learn they are a LOT of experts out there that know a great deal that do NOT work for the TPGs. Whatever the case, the new owner should just return the damn thing to PCGS and let them correct it. jom
  5. ArtR That HAS to be the same ArtR who posted at PCGS all those years ago. Good to hear from you. As to toned coins: I've never been interested myself unless they are: Bust quarters or Bust dimes or Bust half dimes or Mercs or Buffalos or SLQ or..... jom
  6. Looks genuine but if you don't like it ship it back. Sounds like he knew it was a less-than-stellar MS65...he probably got an upgrade from a 64 and your lowball offer was a good quick profit for him. jom
  7. Jom, I'll point out to you, the two examples I pointed out to Nick in an earlier post: A (higher grade) PCGS/CAC AU55 brought (only) $3760, just last month. And an even higher grade PCGS/CAC AU58 brought $5757 in April. Even though we don't know what the cause was, clearly, there was a lot more than just the CAC sticker, which accounted for the AU53 bringing $8800. OK, I accept that. I just thought I'd toss that out there...whatever the case I hope the buyer DID view the coin! jom
  8. I find it interesting the coins brought big money with an auction company that "most of the time" doesn't have lot viewing. Sure you can lot view...I do since I live close by...but what are the chance the two bidders were able to view? If this were a regular Heritage auction I wouldn't bring this up but GC? I don't know... Maybe the sticker DID help. jom
  9. I'm not a huge fan of Morgans but I love that! jom
  10. So many courses are graded on a curve these days. Like many non-science/engineering classes, numismatics too has been plagued by rampant grade inflation. Trust me when I tell you it's within science/engineering as well. jom
  11. If anything it is a negative. If I'm at a show and some blowhard dealer is saying these things I generally end up not trusting him/her (almost always him). In catalogs or eBay I ignore most of that. I'll know once I see a coin whether I'll think it is special. I don't need anyone to tell me that. jom
  12. I love the Dansco toning on the clad quarters! The 68D is especially nice. Here are some CBQs. There are not a lot of this with toning like more modern issues but I grab them when I can. jom
  13. Love the 1895 (MS64) a lot. How come no CAC? jom
  14. I suppose I could just look it up but...I'd say MS62 if I see hairlines on the cheek. I could be wrong though....what did it get? I'm too lazy to look it up. jom
