Re: Hypothetical question

About two years ago, I found a dealer on the bay who was selling a bunch of Morgans all graded but not attributed by ICG. I used to monitor this dealer because he knew nothing about VAMs. I bought 5 1882-0 VAM 32B all in high MS which is a nice VAM. The grading was accurate as they have been crossed...

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?

Re: VSS vs Ebay's Policy

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

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, ...

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...
