Crazy DMPL Day.... <<PCGS UPDATE>>

Post by CascadeChris » Thu Aug 22, 2019 1:42 am

Check this out guys, not only did I get 10x (half a freaking roll) of EDS DMPL 83o's for $36/ea at a shop stop, and they're all v39's. What are the odds :shock:

Sorry for the crappy hotel pics but the adrenaline is still pumping

My guess is they got a direct treasury bag roll in. I have no clue as to why he priced them at $36/ea, when he took them aside to write a price on them for me I almost shit a brick. Talk about testing my poker face 😎

Oh, I forgot to mention that NONE have any issues and all are 3's with a couple possible 2+ and one or two shot 4. Simply amazing. I never cease to be amazed at least a few times per road trip.

Funny story too. Guy had a roll marked NGC. He said I dont want to look at those, i said "Why" he said those are ones he wont sell because he sends dollars to NGC bulk. I said let me look, i might fight you over one or two. He said OK but they're all 64 or better and my God LOL. Most were common dates and almost all were 3's, a few 2's, and maybe a couple that might stretch to 4. No PL's let alone DMPLS when he's selling me solid no-cartwheel frosty mirrors for $36 bucks.. At that point I knew I had a fish on the line. Reel baby reeeeel 😎

Just got em back from the Desk Of Mess!

Gotta say, it seems like they used the ASE Monster Box way of grading these. The 2 non-PL should have gone PL and a couple of the PL's should have gone DMPL but, hey, for $36/ea + bulk grading cost I can hardly complain!

😎🥳🥳🥳

Christmas came early with this Bulk sub! 🎄

Oh, and re-reading my OP, this "testing my poker face" truly was only a mere test. As @vampicker @messydesk and a few others know the kind of poker face I had to put on, and keep on for the better part of 20mins, just a day or two after this. Small things really can be a fortuitous test for what's coming next sometimes. More about this, I'll tell the story, at the FUN VAM dinner and post the story for everyone else when I get back home after the show. Until then my friends 😎

In the early 1960s it was commonplace to find 1/2 or more of a fresh bag containing PL dollars....Much depended on the number of presses being run on the day the coins were struck. I recall a local bank teller pouring out a bag of glittering Morgans and complainant to me that they were all the same date. (I bought the best few I could with my small allowance and lawn mowing money...)

Thanks guys. I have sooo much fun when I'm on the road and little hits like this one just spike that adrenaline. Love it. Almost as good as skydiving, almost :mrgreen:


Roger, I'd kill, literally kill, for something like that or to go through a cache of sealed bags. I do tend to come across rolls of one or two die pairs with some frequency. Guys that bought bags in the 60s, rolled them up (or bought the rolls from dealers who bought bags and sold rolls) are starting to kick the bucket or getting of age where they are liquidating. It's a great time for a sort of poor-mans renaissance of the treasury releases. I wasn't born yet back then so this is the second best thing I suppose..

Great pickin'...cool specimens.

Ha! And I still have that roll of 52A's. I'm paralyzed by wanting to keep it but really shouldn't then not wanting to split it up cuz I know someone would want a full roll of 52A's and its awesome but as a whole its a much harder sell than individually. Ugh. The down side to this biz lol. Decisions decisions :lol: :cry:
