VERY glad to hear that all of the coins made it, without problems and that you felt good enough for your dance!

Good reason to dance for sure.  My star coins are still star coins and the rest of them made it without restoration.

You bet I danced:bigsmile:

Thank, Mark

When I saw the condition of your safe and coin boxes right after the fire, I was really fearful that some of them might have been irreparably damaged. I am glad that wasn't the case. I am happy for you. :grin:

How things going with day to day living? Have you started to rebuild?

So glad to hear the good news. I believe miracles can and do happen. I've had nightmares about my modest collection being submerged under water, stolen.or simply vanishing. I'll try a dance too!:whee::golfclap:

Awesome news I'm sure that anyone of us would have been dancing also.  And a wonderful gesture on the part of NGC and PCGS to reholder your coins at no charge, here's to hoping you receive the same wonderful news ats.

It will take years to rebuild in my old town.  They have made a mess of the cleanup along with the EPA up there plugging the soil for contamination it could take forever, who knows.  We are still struggling with that decision.  We have lived in that town in that house for 30 years and when I went back for the first time after the fire I missed my turn onto my own street.  That’s how different it looks with the trees gone and the structures burned to the ground, just leveled.  So rebuilding our homes, business in that town is still very much up in the air.

We have leased another house to live in for a year but it’s still about an hour away from ground zero. 

We are a strong crew so we will overcome this tragedy in time.

Thank you for asking.

So, to you NGC, Paul Sandler and this entire forum for the help, well wishes and prayers a very heartfelt thank you.

Joe and Family <3

Great news! Also, this is a good reminder for all of us that even with good safes, a hot fire can do some damage for sure.  That was quite a sturdy safe and still the plastic boxes melted.

So glad to hear your coins are being taken care of (yay NGC/PCGS for helping out)...I saw the pictures you'd posted ATS and was fearing the worst.  Best news other than the fact you and your family made it out.

Unfortunately can’t load my images here.  Some I can but other I can’t.

It keeps telling my they’re too big.  I’ll have to give it a try later on.

Happy hunting, Joe

There is a 4.8 mb (I think) per picture limit here. You can resize, or  link to an online hosting site, such as Photobucket. (Although this is not your first rodeo, so you probably know all of this already).

That's one awesome Buff! Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to more images if you can compress the files.

Hello Joe,

We were very happy to help such an awesome guy! I have definitely made a new friend as well, that's for sure. I'm glad your coins arrived safely and that you are satisfied with the work that NCS performed. 

 

Here's a link to the article on your story which just went live on our site!

 

Wishing you all the best!

-Paul
