An Acidic Grading Set...

Post by CascadeChris » Thu Dec 12, 2019 5:10 pm

Bet this isn't what you thought it was from my thread title, or was it? 🤔

So one or two bulks ago I sent 2 v49's in and they came back 62 & 63 and in the interim I came across another. Sent it in the next bulk and wouldn't ya know... 61 :?

So now the question is, do I keep all 3 and shoot for a 60 & 64 and hopefully a 5 too as a cherry on this Funky sundae? 😎


It's the little things that make you laugh when you now churn & burn massive amounts of Morgans and have relatively little time for leisurely academic VAMming anymore :cry: :lol:

Hum, there are no known 64 or 65’s!
Now the 60 is possible with the current grading screws that are in place!
Lol The screws are so tight, I sent in a rare Vam for down grade for my 🙃Low ball set. It just got a down grade from Xf 40 to 30! I was just hoping for 35!!!!!

........leisurely academic Vamming.......
Reminds me of your 82 S fiasco! With the concave obverses. Talk about confusing.

Ha! Ain't that the truth Pete. Sent a rare one to NGC recently, it's a solid 2 but was hoping for a 3 gift (especially at NG which is why I went with them obvi) or if they were being jerks and made me bend over.. a 1 at worst.. They 60'd it.. Bastards!

It'll upgrade when they're done being so tight but I can't wait so someone will get a gift. I guess the silver lining is that it'll make for a relative quick sale on a somewhat expensive and popular VAM but in my current hand-to-mouth position, especially this time of year, the loss of a couple thou sucks. Whatcha gonna do though, life is 90% timing.. And hell, maybe 60 is a pop 1 for it lol. I've always been a glass half-full type :lol: but :cry: :cry: :oops:


PS: Didn't know 3 is top-pop on the 49. Cool! Thanks for that :D.. Makes it easier to let them go eventually knowing that finding one in 4, let alone 5, would be such a challenge.

I was at the Vegas show earlier this year and a dealer supposedly sold an H9 or H10 in xf45 minutes before I got to his table. Hashtag gut punch!.. I did win a few hundred on a dollar slot on the way out tho so that helped with the sadness lol.

See ya guys soon! 🤓
