TPG Crossover Labels

Maybe I've been hiding under a rock, but I recently sent a few crossovers to PCGS. They graded and everything is fine. They also sent back the other TPG labels. I thought in years past that they sent them to the other TPG's so the populations would be accurate. Do they still report them to the other...

Re: True View

True View

Just sent a few coins in and True view was $5 per coin. Is that a special they are running or did they change prices? Jim

Re: Wanted - 1878 8TF Rarities

Happy to say that the 14.20 crossed to PCGS in the same XF45 grade. Also had an ANACS 14.18 in XF40 cross at the same grade as well.

Re: Wanted - 1878 8TF Rarities

Coin received today and looks much better in hand with a lot of underlying luster. Attribution is correct and I think it will cross, but we will see. Overall happy with the purchase on a rare coin. :D

Have not used them yet - but Greatcollections.com - 5% for coins under $1000 and 0% over $1000. Might be an option. Jim

I've been around a while, but never asked. I've probably got 6 or so that I think warrant another look for designation. I obviously don't want to waste Leroys time if I am missing the vam or a pup. What should procedure be for those we think could be but may not be something new. I did get my first ...

Re: WTB: 1878 VAMs 85 & 86 & (188 & 222A in MS)

Obviously we all search the same places and get lucky every once in a while. Recently got an 8tf v5 in pcgs65 on heritage buy it now for under a grand. They are out there. But if both mark and others spot an 85 or 86, 8ts going to get expensive

Date looks funky - letters around the obverse are uneven distance from the rim. Counterfeit IMO.

My buying has picked up slightly but I think some tougher coins have been coming to market that I've been looking for. Quality and rare will always have a place somewhere. Jim
