Re: I'M PAYING ATTENCION THIS TIME

Thanks guys for the info, and please forgive me for the overuse of multiple "W" words. Just seems that an example would be better than a pic any day. Anyway, it is what it is. If I don't like it, I don't have to do it, right? I will make a stab at some photos later for your viewing pleasure!

Re: I'M PAYING ATTENCION THIS TIME

Are the bulk subs with NGC under the sane rule? And why is it such a big deal to find out which condition disqualified any particular coin? Would anybody besides me like to know what condition eliminated one or more of your coins? It would be no extra work for the TPG as they have already examined t...

Re: I'M PAYING ATTENCION THIS TIME

Furthermore, I failed to mention that this quandry is in no way aimed at JB. He bends over backwards to help whenever he can. I'm just saying it should be a nobrainer to report why a coin is a details item since you have to look at it anyway. Come on some of you brainiacs, give us a "weigh in".

I'M PAYING ATTENCION THIS TIME

Is there any reason why a details coin is not holdered and described when entered in a bulk submission?

Re: WOW!s and more available (Many added 2/9/19)

Hey Rob, I'm not trying to be a PIA, but it would really help me, and maybe some others, if all the available coins were in one list. Even better if in chronological order, starting with oldest. What do you think?

QUANDRY

I'm about to bid on an 1878 8tf MS 60 details cleaned Vam 9. I know about what the value is of a MS 60, but no idea how much to discount it for the details grade. Any last minute advice?

Re: NEED ADVICE W/ O/T

Well, we finally have a decent photo, thanks to CascadeChris. Thanks-a-million Chris for your time, expertise, and mostly, your patience. And thanks for all those looks and replies, which taught me the difference between a priceless mint error, and a malfunctioning coin-wrapping machine. I still thi...

Re: NEED ADVICE W/ O/T

NGC could not say what caused the damage, therefore, how can they say that its detail type damage and not mint error type damage. Am I being difficult?

Re: NEED ADVICE W/ O/T

Seems like nobody wants to commit on whether or not its worth a trip to the "mint error" dept. I can see the damage in the pic, but is it "detail" or "error" damage? Anyway, thanks for the views and comments, most helpful.

Re: NEED ADVICE W/ O/T

CC, Thanks for info. Is die break a possibility? That's what it looks most like, a jagged line running from coin center to near the edge at 1 oclock. NGC pics are blurry. I'll try to get some clearer ones when the coin gets here. Thanks for looking.

NEED ADVICE W/ O/T

I recently sent some uncirculated Guam W m/m quarters for grading. Out of 40 coins, 39 came back MS 64, 65, 66, or 67, and one was labeled UNC DETAILS-OBV DAMAGE. The coins were mailed back today, so all I have to go on now is the online photo posted by NGC, and it is blurry. (cert # 4423559-011) De...

Re: EXTRTMELY OFF TOPIC, BUT LET'S GO

Guys, thanks for all the great info. Turns out, I bought my W Lowell's too late to qualify for first or early releases. No wonder they were so cheap. So, I'm guessing that the W Lowells, as well as the W Mariana, are now face value, or is there any premium for the W m/m? Anyway, a little birdie told...
