CAC

Some discussion: I think we can agree that a CAC sticker adds some element of value to a coin. Why do we need another grader to verify the grading on the holder? Seems like if we are paying the grading companies to grade a coin they should be accurate. Yes, I am well aware that grading is subjective...

Re: 1921-d VAM-1K.

I have a 1K2 graded at AU50. I could dig it out if that would help.

I have also sold many coins with listings labeled VSS. Sometimes graded and sometimes not. You can bank on John's attribution.

Re: Loupes

I have for several years now used a 35X50 I bought on ebay. Here is an auction number of what I'm talking about: 223871610725. There are a number of them on the bay if you search 35X magnifying. Funny thing is that they say "made in Germany" but come in a box that says made in China. They are glass...

Re: SALES TAX

Bob; Im with Chris on this one : On E BAY or any auction site, explaining your costs etc of sale is burdensome and most buyers care less. To be more clear in what I do and I don't explain all costs to all. It goes like this. The person offers a low ball offer and I respond with I pay grading fees, ...

Re: SALES TAX

I have sold a few coins on the bay where sales tax was collected. I agree with Scott that this will hurt sales. I got a low offer and explained I had grading costs plus ebay/paypal fees as well as shipping went up higher than I was collecting. He came back with he had to pay sales tax. Fyi, its typ...

Re: Scare Of My Life

Not the post I wanted to read since I'm going into surgery on the 7th for a different issue. Had surgery last year too. This getting old is not the golden years I pictured. Mine should be okay but the recovery is the tough part. So glad you are coming through it. Lots of time to stare at Morgans and...

Re: USPS strikes again!!!

The postal service can be brutal at times, however, I have to say that several years of buying and selling coins I've not had any trouble except once when the idiot seller just stuck the Morgan in a white letter envelope which may have got lost in the machine that sorts envelopes. When I sell I alwa...
