Did you pay a sweet and low O-mint price? :D
When in doubt... don't.

Sometimes NGC is beset with a myriad of issues! At least they got the date correct. :lol: ;)

Hope you acquired that coin Lee for 1881 S money. That 1885 S checks in at $1850 versus 1881 S at $150.

Nice . Scary though . How do you expect them to grade a coin correctly if they can’t figure out the label .

Happens all the time. Easy data-entry error to make. I'd like to think they actually catch these when coins are sitting in QA, but most bulk orders I've sent have one coin mislabeled that sends me into a panic trying to match up orders until I find it. This time was no exception.

I check every single coin I get graded. Must be some pretty large bulk orders to not notice this kind of mistake when the order is returned.
