Re: 1889cc v4a

Re: Grade opinions, please! :-)

Ok, what is it? It can’t be an 1889o v1a2, no clashed g, not 1887 v1a, there are ms examples, not 1891o v3a2 because there is a ms example. Not 1880 v39a, 33a, 1888o v1a, 1891o v1a, 1884 v2a, not 1883o v36a, 22a, 1878 v84a, which leaves 1889o v20a. ??

Re: Arigato Messydesko

I have gotten plenty of those “head scratchers”. Now that ngc is badly undergradung dollars, people have stopped sending thme to them and are flooding pcgs with dollars. It’s slowing things wayy down.

Re: Lamination vs. cracked planchet?

Generally speaking, A cracked planchet is characterized by a crack that goes through both sides. I would attribute this as a lamination.

I was told several times that they will not do this brcause of liability issues, besides, if they were going to do that, i’d think they would at least try to farm them out to someone that was at least remotely competent.

Re: O/T... TONED WLH

is there slight doubling towards the center on IN GOD WE TRUST? it would show on the right sides of the lettering. if so, it is listed as KF/BR DDO-001. it's in the book I did back in 2001.
