I think hfjacinto expressed my opinion perfectly.
If you spent 4 years acquiring them, you don't need them all graded this month. One a day will still get it done and allow for more in depth responses.
Currently working on:
Australia type set
Canada type set
Three from each country (up to 416!)
UK 20th and 21st century
IHC's! NGC certified MS-62 or better, Capital Plastics Fine or better, Dansco Fine or better, Dansco any x3, and Coin Board for wall display, any grade. (I may be a tad obsessed)

First off,please don't shoot the messenger .
I rarely comment on grades because I am not that good at it. Here is my two cents,after posting 60 questions on grading, I would think you have a handle on how well you grade your own coin. At this point, try only posting coins that are giving you a lot of trouble grading. I hope I have not ruffled "anyones'" feathers.

John1 ..... No, I don't plan on shooting the messenger, and I'm still keeping score. I said I would go with the consensus and that needs another day at least to run.

"post your coins with gerbils and other rodents"


I must say I really don't like these topics much myself. There are literally 100s, if not 1000s of coins in those topics that absolutely deserve their own topics. But they get posted on page 116 and when page 117 rolls around they are barely looked at ever again.

I am scrutinizing new ones extremely carefully. Someone a few months ago actually started one "Post your damaged coins here!" Seriously? Hundreds of megabytes of images of damaged coins? We have that already all over the forum. I vaporized that one immediately. Another one attempted a few months back: "Post Your 'Almost A Fancy S/N'" Really?

Here is my 2 cents. Stop worrying about everyone else. Post away and you should be done in a month or two. Stop making post about posting too much and just do what you need to do.

I've viewed a number of the OP's dollars and have posted on several. I don't have any objection to those threads but I do get less interested with repetition. I'm hoping that the OP became a more discriminating buyer over time; if so the quality of the posted coins should improve. Keep 'em coming and we will see!

For those newer collectors trying to get a feel for how to grade, something is to be learned by every coin posted for grading. Doesn't matter if 50 Morgans are posted by one person of 50 different people in my opinion.

I doubt newer collectors ever look at past grading examples. They don't look at every other road rashed coin post, it's all "look at my mint damaged penny that I found in a parking lot, that I drove over and a few other cars drove over and a dog did something on, yep this is mint damage, how much is it worth?" Shows picture of "penny" , 2nd post "oh by the way I cleaned my hands after touching the "penny"" shows another blurry "penny" picture.

The many posts about the coins to me have become like that. Without the dirty penny :)

Look I'm all for newbys getting grading advice but there has to be a reason for it, for example a higher grade is worth more money or is rarer. But when the coins are worth melt until high MS grades I don't see the value. Again -> Me, you could see value. Just my 2 cents.

The reason is to learn or if you are unsure. Making it all about money and only caring for "high value" coins is a good way to suck the fun out of the hobby. Almost as bad as people posting "spender" on an excited newbies post, does it hurt to let someone be excited? Do you really care if they keep a quarter because it is green?

Im all for learning, I figured after 20, if you didn't learn, then there isn't much I can teach.

If it's a spender then it should be stated as such. Yes one should be told straight up it has no extra value. I have a few coins that have no extra value but I know they are spenders.

If the coin is green, one should be careful as it can spread to other coins, so they shouldn't keep it or keep it with other coins.

Look I'm in the minority here, like I prefaced before I'm ignoring the posts about grading the silver dollars and I bypass the main page as pages of grade my silver dollar are uninteresting but the OP asked for an opinion and I'm gladly giving it. If you don't agree that's totally fine, I'll call a spender a spender.

When you originally posted asking about this, I had said that I didn't think you'd have an issue if you posted say 5 coins a week. 5 a day is a lot more than that. I'd try to go back to some middle ground and cut down the frequency.

Every coin is different. How many marks, what kind of marks, luster, toning, strike, many things to consider. If it was easy to learn how to grade after looking at 20 coins of the same type, we'd all be experts. All I'm saying is, the more you look at and try to grade, the more it helps.

All grading is subjective, just look at what everyone on here grades. And It's hard grading from pictures as lighting and the angle can change what one sees.

But I'm done. Like I stated several times before post what you want, if it interests me I'll comment if it doesn't I'll skip.

Ill chime in on this one, as I host MANY websites.

If the folks have no problem with the Hawaii guy posting multiple MANY and frequent posts, then its just a numbers game.

It is true the further down a post gets, the less likely a reply.

I had one that got buried, and I gave it a bump by replying to my own post, and bang, I got replies.

Just work within they system that is provided.

Apparently the guy broke no rules, so use what is available to you to make your post rise to the top again, (I suggest prime viewing time)

Don't take it personal, like I'm going away, just use the system and don't break the owner's rules.

Operate within the system, it's not personal.

I sure would hate to see a member go away for taking the system personally.

A LOT of things don't go our way in life, you just don't go, I'm taking my marbles and going home.

Give your post a bump, problem solved.

Just my 2 cents, :)
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
