Re: OT - Dan Carr Set Almost Done

Carr makes some of his pieces look circulated. I have one of his Standing Liberty Quarter tokens in a VF30 holder. The apparent grade is consistent with what the actual would look like . If you wanted to make a technical argument, you could, but technical grading died back in the 80's Agreed. I als...

Re: OT - Dan Carr Set Almost Done

Among the esoteric sets I have been assembling is a complete set of Dan Carr products where they are overstrikes on large format US dollar coins or employ the design elements of them. I am down to missing only a handful out of over 100 different ones. Here is the latest ANACS grading. Very happy ab...

62 at best.
Agree on MS62 - If luster was more even it could see 63. Nice 85CC at any rate.

Re: Date on PCI Slab?

That one is early 90s. Their grading was good then. Double-check the attribution, though. While VAM 1A was known then, not much else about 1921-D was. I always liked the 90's era PCI slabs. When J.T Stanton joined them, they were quite good at both attribution & accurate in their grading. I would b...

Re: Do you think you have a Doubled Die?

So my question is this. Are not both Machine and Die doubling both errors? Neither should appear on the coin correct? Die fatigue in the case of double ears is a case in point. Not all are doubled, some are die fatigue. As some have mentioned they probably should not have been listed. So why is one...

Re: OT: Upheaval in the card world

We in the coin universe might be interested to know about the mayhem that has been going on lately in the sports and trading card world – specifically at PSA, the card grading brother of PCGS. It is something to keep in mind whenever we think the cost of grading our coins is too high. In 2020, Covi...

Re: 2021 Peace Dollars

I think I must have been at the front of the line. I only ordered 2 and it looks like many that ordered 3 had minimal luck. I wonder if their "new" system didn't handle orders of either 1, 2 or 3 individually. My order was in on 12:01pm, I did clear my computer, logged in & out, then restarted it ab...

Re: Do you think you have a Doubled Die?

These tokens were produced using hand cut dies, so they aren't truly doubled dies. I don't see any strike doubling and it certain;y isn't double struck. It has some recut letters on the reverse. These are present on all examples of Reverse E Great Analysis - Not a DDR as dies were hand cut, not str...

After review of this topic and the great technical definitions within, I would like to seek all of your wisdom which is a bit OT on this specimen.

Re: 1880 VAM 39a - Value and Crossover Advice Please

MS62 would be most accurate grade...too many bag marks on Obverse field & cheek plus a soft strike on eagles breast on Reverse, nice even color and luster should be consistent with the grade. Nice pull for a junk slab!

Re: OT 1914 PCGSPR67 BUFFALO NICKEL

Nothing like a target toned Buffalo. Always loved the delicate undulation in the fields of early specimens. Just think another ton of pressure on that squeeze and you would have a PF68+ split tail reverse. Beautiful score & thanks for sharing!
