Re: Bulk submissions?

If you have questions beyond those which are answered at the above link, you can post them to that thread or PM me directly, and I'll answer anything that doesn't have to do with the inner workings of PCGS or USPS, as I am not privy to those.

Re: Please tape your Small Flat Rate Boxes

We need a YouTube video or it didn't happen JB :mrgreen: ...then we can tag USPS and you can single handedly be responsible for them changing styles to a more secure form of origami (as if they would :lol:) Why would they do that? It would slow down their thieves, and they sell tiny rolls of tape f...

Please tape your Small Flat Rate Boxes

Just a public service announcement. If I can open, empty, and close a small flat-rate box in under 10 seconds, so can a USPS thief on the inside. That's all.

Re: HEAVY Clasher 82-O

Interesting that the position of the hammer follows a sine wave. A universal property of the all that is. I expected a more complex waveform to reflect power at the approach to the dashed line. It very well may be somewhat more complex than a simple sine wave, but it is periodic, the motion reverse...

Ok, so EVERY SINGLE 83o is a v52A... EVERY SINGLE ONE :o

I have NEVER, I repeat NEVER, bought a solid VAM roll, ever. Let alone a 52A solid roll where I tend to get a pretty decent premium :shock: wow :mrgreen:

Re: Can we please get an O/T page?

I like the idea! But, I think JB already has a full platter. He's going to get inundated with calls for this or that to be removed or 'so and so' to be banned, ect. ... This gets at the crux of the problem, and it's not just the time spent policing and inevitably cleaning up after that kind of stuf...

Re: Can we please get an O/T page?

I'll take this into consideration, although there could be a lot of unintended consequences of having a "free for all" forum that aren't good, and which would end with such a forum being removed.

Re: PCGS Graded Counterfeit

The only "counterfeit" stickers I put on are for the Micro O Family contemporary counterfeits that have VAM numbers. These are the ones that are occasionally missed by TPGs (as above) and sought by collectors.

@messydesk I don't feel that is part of your job..This lies on PCGS and NGC.

The E on the obverse is a "one and done" dead giveaway for VAM 7.

I have to enable various document types. As of now, I only enabled images (JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP). If people want to send PDFs or other types, I can enable those, too.
