Re: PCGS Frustration

Progress!

Both remaining orders are in Encapsulation status!

Re: O/T Taxman

So WHO reaps the reward of the extra $$ paid?? Especially when neither state requires, does the seller get a hidden profit? :evil:

O/T Taxman

Has something changed on eBay? My last two coin (not bullion) transactions have had sales tax added; in one case neither the dealer state nor the state being shipped to require sales tax on coins. The other case, the state of sale has 7%, but get charged 8%. State being shipped to does not require t...

Re: PCGS Frustration

I submitted 3 coins, separate orders; 4/14 process date. I got the 1st back in a little over 3 weeks; simple re-slab as the original rattler holder encountered the bank vault floor :cry: Next was a PCGS graded and slabbed 1878 as MS 62 I wanted slabbed as an error due to a dropped letter on the reve...

Re: 1878-S Vam 1, 54, 61, 67 maybe 91, 85 and 94 need to be reviewed

So if the Fogie specimen of v85 is the Discovery coin, that should seal its fate . The SEGS 62PL V91 is registered in the SSDC registry so not lost. Thanks to Brian for reaching out to Larry. Maybe more info will be shed. Not sure how v1 can be reconciled; similar v2 is already gone… Progress is in ...
