Re: F/u on JB's 91-O 1A2 purchase...

NNP says you did good , but does not seem to differentiate 1A2 from the other three varieties.

Re: F/u on JB's 91-O 1A2 purchase...

I just want to tell you all I very much appreciate you talking about this coin . I have a 1A1 that I bought on ebay raw . I can almost guarantee it would get a details grade, and might be a 50 at best if it somehow got a straight number . My personal opinion is that these clashed BERT's are some of ...

Re: HIt List 40 Value Questions

OK so is there a way to join The SSDC online ? I tried to it online and the link for the application appears to not work anymore . It is probably me . if not and we need to do it the old fashion way with a check and snail mail , I am good with that. I just would very much like to join if that is OK ?

Thank you all ! I really just want to get a little better at all this. @ Samsheild , that's still a way pretty coin IMO . Bottom line for me in attempting to get all 96 of them , was that they are real and they are beautiful . In contemplating just how to obtain some of the harder dates , I figured ...

Re: The cleaned badge of shame

Yes thank you very much , I appreciate the advice . Six months ago I did not understand things like strike and luster being in the equation. I am not the only one that is rumored to be having difficulties of late . As far as rumors go I have heard a few and trust me I know very little about how this...

Re: HIt List 40 Value Questions

Interested in hearing the answer to this one, too. SSDC database guide shows odd values. Most 90-Os in 50, 53 or 55 condition go for about $45 (to $55 or $60 but not that much higher), yet the SSDC site shows the value for the VAM-20 to run amok in higher circulated grades, only to precipitously dr...

Re: The cleaned badge of shame

Thank you both very much ! I will add your knowledge to future purchases . Honestly I bought that one sight unseen. When I took it to my coin dealer almost 6 months ago , he said nothing about it being cleaned , but was quite convinced it was AU . I disagreed with the AU grade so I decided just to g...

Re: The cleaned badge of shame

Well thank you for the reply , maybe that's it . I unrolled that 1898-0 out of a shotgun roll . Picked it out of twenty and sent it to PCGS. The end game was to learn how this all works . I wanted to know if the coin grading thing was legit . Like as in fair to everyone from the certified dealer to ...

The cleaned badge of shame

Not sure why this one came back cleaned , Its not particularly High value , or even a real high grade . I just need to post the pictures from my work computer before I go home so I might have a chance of shrinking the picture down enough to post here . I think PCGS just does not like me or they just...
