      Try the new NGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      NGC has launched a new and improved NGC Journals! Available on NGCcoin.com, the new NGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new NGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the NGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old NGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the NGC website. Old NGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new NGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new NGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new NGC Journals or go to the new NGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!

        Click Add Journal Entry to add a post to your journal

        Commenting on another user's Journal is easy. After selecting a journal to read, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the field where you may enter your comments and see the comments others have posted.

i had been watching this for a while on the bay and finally came up with a number i felt was good for me and actually didnt even think seller was going to take, d/t the difference in his original price.

Anyway, it resides in an ANACS holder, MS64. My question is, does anyone think it would be worth it to reholder with NGC?

Possible star designation for eye appeal?

The coin REALLY looks awesome in hand! The reverse shows ALOT of PL surface, and the obverse is VERy attractice in hand.

WHat do you guys and gals think?

I really like the gold stars on the obverse with the blue field as contrast. I think NGC's stars idea is a great selling point over other TPG services. You would think that where ever possible they'd want to reward worthy coins. it's just exciting and good business.

That was one of my favorite this.gs about it too. Also, when the coin is tipped on the side it looks like liberty is submerged in water. I call it "drowning liberty"

Looks like a finger print in front of liberty's face. Because of that I am not so sure it would get a star.

From the looks of it , I'd call it a PL. Star designation worthy, NO. Nice catch and Congrats.

There is one fly in the ointment. This is an 1881-S silver dollar, and nice examples of this coin are almost as common as sharks’ teeth. These coins were well made with many P-L examples, and large numbers of these coins are known in MS-64 and better.

 

Getting a star on an 1881-S is not quite as hard as finding a 1970-D half dollar in a bank roll, but it’s close.

Nice looking coin. I like the luster, however I do not believe it will get a star.

Ah, 1881-S Morgans. Quite possibly the pinnacle of the minting craft in terms of 19th century business strikes.

Based on the images provided, I don't see the coin as star worthy.

I agree that it is not a star worthy coin but it is still a nice common date MS example.

It was very hard to get the true quality of the surface from my camera. I really think it is a beautiful coin. The surfaces are quite PL in spots. Unfortunatly I will admit they are not 100% PL
