Nice.
I knew I would get some response and get the ball rolling, but to receive a swear word posting, that I am unpleasantly surprised! Maybe I'm playing with the wrong people here?

Given that my understanding of 'blue chip' is the same as everybody else, mine are:

1949 1c
1925 5c
1875 10c
1921 25c
1870 50c
1948 dollar


What is your view?

I personally wouldn't have used a free grading on a coin like that...
Again, it was free and only for this particular mintage. I don't know my your American history for this 'special' year.

Correct.

This coin was submitted prior to our genuine program being introduced. The coin was submitted prior to 2008, if the coin was sent in now and was graded the same we would place it into a genuine holder (as long as it does not go through our Secure + line).

Thanks. What is meant by 'Holdered' ?

For code 93, it should have been encased in a holder?

I'm sure the following question as been asked prior, but I'm new here;

"Why is the 1946 arrow 5cent not worth, for at least 10 years, mentioning* and the 50cent is (hoof through 6) ?"

Well, I somewhat disagree. It's fun to have some noodle-scratchers. I have a few "wt heck, why?" coins, but I never spent the $$ for certification. I can just imagine the grading company employee looking at the paperwork!

Anyway, the non-slabbed number is 2431.93/21180712

Thanks for reading,

MR

As I said in my original post, free grading. That is why.

Hello,

Not sure if I'm in the correct forum because I don't collect US coins, but long story short, I submitted my 1909 cent to PGCS for a free grading and it came back non capsulated with a sticker comment "Planchet Flaw". So, my question is "Is this good or bad news?".

Thanks for your comment(s).

P.S. I found that beat up coin in pocket change and north of the border.

Yeah! Neat little find for sure.

In passing, are you the same Calgary_Coin* that I have under my 'web favorites' ?

Also, stop looking at 1969 dimes. You have a better chance in winning the lottery.

As the title indicates, what is your somewhat 'odd' ongoing collection?

On of mines is George V 5cents in PCGS AU-58 grade (work in progress).
