I sort of already fulfilled this concept with the NO FG Kennedy halves
I don't care about varieties in this case, actual grades. if they want a variety they should know what the heck they're looking at.
The context of this entire thread was to warn slabbing-newbies about factual information that they need to understand why grading companies are not a "get rich quick scheme."
As you said:
If someone is stupid enough to buy something misattributed then that's on them,
Which is what this thread was started for. Please objectively re-read the original post noting its not telling people to stay away form the "evil slabbing businesses,"
' Note deliberate statements such as
And...the "fault" (but not really a "fault" per se) is in the system

Emphasis in original
I also, posted (look above o this page) that I had poor title wording that likely threw this thread off track.
Just being honest...someone who does not like to see shortcomings of these grading companies posted will take a more defensive position when reading the original thread. However, I want it noted that o the other forum (and there are die hard slab collectors there as well), I actually received private messages congratulating me on helping people who do not understand the actual way to use these companies intelligently.
I hope you watched the video?
