PCGS attribution screw ups

Hi To all
Just seeing if its common for PCGS to really screw up on attributes to VAM's
I just have been seeing alot of screw ups lately . Especially on the 1879S rev 78 stuff .
Any stories Positive of Negative from the Crew ?

Thanks

Re: Zero Inventory

Weird Times I would say . So the bullion is Hot and I understand . But are the RARE coins Hot as well ? It seems its Hit or Miss for the collector obtaining coins for the collections .

Re: Early mention of a partial collar Morgan dollar

Mike
Maybe your right the partial collar is like a railroad line . I see it now. AHH .
Lets let Morganman educate us on this , He would know !!! And Verify this .
John
But it does look like a railroad 1/2 of the line . I just never knew this , Learn something everyday !!!
