      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 one more but didn't want to bother to many with multiple pics of the same coin. I put it in the obverse slip in the set for sale on my page. A Gumball Pic. One day I may realy catch the right angle of this one.

 

Thanks Guys-------Rick

How many coins did you have to submit before you got the 66?

I used to think the same way, but this anomaly is created by volume. The large dealers buy in huge volume and thus have a broader selection to pick from when grading. When I started trying to learn grading seriously, I choose to work with the Roosevelt Clad set I was working on and bought as many coins as I could find, OBW rolls, rolls of coins in mint cello, mint sets in bulk, etc - weed through the junk, keep a few, go back through the keepers and then weed through them again, keeping what I thought was the very best. I went through hundreds of the same date on most issues and only then did I get into MS 67 FT and MS 68 FT coins. I thought these were mythical coins reserved for the mighty, what I found out was they are out there, but my subset was just too small to find them... They are still very tough to find though. In 3 years of searching I've found one coin in the 1970's subset of Roosie's that graded to an MS 67 FT - I would guess that I've been through 5,000 coins to find it. In that same group of coins I did also find one MS 68. 2c

This coin was purchased from Ron - (rons). I did do allot of coin grading submisions on Morgans before the stock market crash. You get better with each submision and I tell everyone that wants to submit some coins--" Purchase a few--medium grade,nice grade, and a real high grade - graded by the same grader. This will give you something to actually compare your new additions to before grade submissions are sent in.
