Nice sneaky little $30 hit...

Post by CascadeChris » Sat Oct 12, 2019 12:11 am

Heres a good lesson for the newbies, lurkers, hunters etc. NEVER trust what's written on the flip/2x2.. EVER... And always negotiate :lol:

She's not one of the uber rare ones, only a lowly v2, but for $30 I'll take her :mrgreen:

Good job. The coin gallery I go to I always negotiate the price.

Another lesson is to look closely at the actual COIN in the 2x2. What looks like PMD or a scratch might only be on the plastic. This is also the case for certified. I had one DMPL slab that I could image every which way and it always looked like the coin had major cleaning scratches. Sometimes even Meguiar's can't polish them out of the plastic well enough. SUcks when it is in that valuation level that would be wasteful to pay a reholdering fee. (I might have used it as the 8th man in the annual freebie regrade order.)

Very true JC. Forgot to mention that. Heck, even with a loupe I couldn't quite tell for sure if some of them were on the coin or plastic until I took it out.
