I visited my local coin shop today and they had 25 PCGS graded common date $5 Liberty Head Gold coins in the cabinet. When I asked the young lady behind the counter, exactly what these were from PCGS, she got very defensive and said, "I really don't know".
They all had 40 in the bar code numerically. The holder only stated, PCGS XF
Has anyone seen this? I examined all 25 coins and determined that a few were VF30-35 coins.
Very sad. What happened to PCGS?
