They are doable. Either Brent or I can get it in soon enough.

Re: O.T. kind of.....

And some just plain post in the wrong categories. Happens to the best and most organized. The ones that get me are bust halves in early dollars. Twice I almost pulled the trigger on "an unlisted dollar" only to then note the base of the bust being that of the half. The "early" dollar category name a...

Re: One PCGS Order Grades In

Here is the TrueView for that BB-181. For those unfamiliar with these, the PUPs are the die poop around the 11th star on the obverse (adjacent to Liberty's chin) and the leaf connected to the lower right corner of the I/AMERICA on the reverse. 40129417_medium.jpg I agree on that and a handful of oth...

Re: PCGS sold to Cohen or soon to be sold

Going back to private can be a very good thing but it actually could go both ways. The big advantage is that the investors can be a bit more patient on results, whereas being chained to the SEC opens a listed company to class action suits and board shuffles over short-horizon fiduciary disagreements.

Got ANACS Grades Posted

Sent in mainly for the Dan Carr ones to complete the set (still have one I need to send in). Added a bunch of raw ones which I knew were mainly AU and some cleaned. A number of them were not in the Registry, being the reason to send them off so I didn't accidentally sell them on eBay. The 1811 half ...

Re: David Wang's 1879-S book

Got a bunch of PMs, texts, and emails. I think what I will do is set up a digital bid board and advertise it on the BSTA for the books, VAMs, etc. If it works can open it up for others to use.

I have it and was going to sell off most of my books.

Yeah, it is here. Bought it from David Wang and never opened it actually.

Re: 2 sided strike thru?!??

Wonder if the planchet fell into the minter's soup or something. I am guessing it came with the planchet and was not on the dies.

Re: 1795 Draped Bust Silver Dollar????

It is the off-center BB-51 and looks completely genuine to me. It is not clashed. The cloud design just has that look and the overall production quality at the Mint in 1795 was not exactly top notch. And it is VERY plentiful. Highly promoted forever because it is a single-use obverse design die, but...

Re: 1878 V41C

While not particularly scarce, for whatever reason, that VAM has represented many of the most wonderful toners of the date. Maybe there was a bag of them in the Continental Bank?

Re: PCGS re-holder special.. blah

It runs through the end of the year. I am only doing early dollars and can wait until the surge subsides a bit. That way, too, I don't have as many of the inevitable ones to add right after I send in a submission.
