Re: Coin Photo Viewer Windows 11

If you're referring to the default photo viewer app, it is still available, just hidden. I had to restore the old one too. That new one drives me bananas. https://www.ghacks.net/2021/10/26/how-to-restore-the-windows-photo-viewer-in-windows-11/ The new web/microscope camera viewer seems ok. Good luck.

Re: 1922-P Peace Dollar VAM Help

Hello, That appears to have a B2 reverse so it's not 1AA. It looks like it may be a small die crack which is interesting but not listed.

Re: You want a rare Peace dollar?

I'd love to have it but I expect it to hammer up there with a gem 34-S.

That's a great clash. I believe there's a photo of that exact coin on the VAM-1W page.

Re: 1934 D VAM 3a

Here's my PCGS VAM 3. I have it logged in as 3A but the gouges are not as pronounced as the ones in the VAMWorld 3a page.

Re: Two R7 Peace Dollar VAMs!!

That's a very nice LDS 1H. I just mailed John an EDS to attribute. I'll take both of these. I sent a PM to coordinate.

Thanks,

Re: CAC is the next new grading company

It's apparent from the interview with JA that they are are targeting collectors that currently trust the CAC brand. With the new grading service, they will designate the coin at a level where it will be green bean worthy on the front side. Or put it in a details holder. Any coin without issues is a ...

Re: CAC stickered coins

I send a good number of coins to PCGS but I'm not trying to update grades. PCGS claims the reconsideration level service allow you to keep the original certification number even if you add the attribution and the coin doesn't upgrade. Will anything change on my label if I receive an upgrade? Other t...

Re: PCGS Frustration

I have a regular service grading order with attribution that was logged in on 2/16/2022 and finally shipped on 6/24/2022. It has been my experience that the TrueView images get published 20+ business days after the orders ship lately.

Re: Change at PCGS?

Are you referring to coins housed in the newest PCGS NFC chip slabs, or coins slabbed preceding the newest holders? They still NG all the questionable stuff I send them.

Re: Old holder madness at Heritage

I collect GOLD CAC stickers.
Hi Andy,

I've sent about 200 Peace Dollars in PCGS holders to CAC over the last several years and only about 30% of them have received a green sticker. I've never received a gold sticker on any of them so I understand.

Re: Old holder madness at Heritage

It always amuses me to read the belittling comments regarding the collecting preferences of others with similar interests within the hobby. The value of the rarest most sought-after variety is based on the highest bidder’s desire to obtain it. Collectors generally pay little attention to intrinsic c...
