I want the truth, though, and between the four coins I posted, I'm in it for approximately $5,200. That includes the PCGS grading/restoration piece of this. If the truth is that I was a dumb rookie, I'll reluctantly swallow that.


You are playing in the deep end with lot of sharks buying raw coins online over $1K. I put a limit on my raw coin risk tolerance, and anything over the amount is a NGC or PCGS holder.

Wow, West. That was a heck of a reply. I'm sorry to hear about your dad and his insurance dropping off. Sad deal. You sound like you've been at this for some serious time. The guy I bought the 1853 O half from was an older man who claims to have been selling coins since the '60s. He claimed he didn't believe the coin had been cleaned. I trusted, foolishly, his assessment and bought the coin. He also claimed it had a doubled die obverse and reverse, but after much investigation, I learned about the common Longacre Doubling. Anyway, they are all cool coins, and I hope I didn't overpay for them, but if I did, it'll be ok. It is a gift for my newborn son, anyway. I wanted something unique, not off a shelf.

Arrrgh. It came back from PCGS as AU Details, damaged, smoothed surfaces.

This one looked good to me. I don't really know how one goes about smoothing a surface of a 168 year old coin, but two of my five coins submitted came back with that designation. Very frustrating.

AU details, whizzed. The brush pits are visible in the blow up photos.
