Found this one back in August. Sold it within 2 hours on ebay for 20 times what I paid for it. Definitely my best pick in 20 years.

Tough grade for that variety.

@jerry, best practice is to start a new thread for each new coin, so I've split this out for you.

Very nice! A really nice variety and in high grade for it too. You don't find the one in neck in higher grades often, congrats!

I knew the guy that bought this would tone it. I see identifying marks to confirm it's the same coin.

This is why I don't trust NGC or even PCGS. I think ANACS does a better job of identifying this kinda crap.

This one takes the cake though. I sold this to him at the same time as the 1897. I'm dumbfounded. The token was a much lighter color and had some corrosion around the nose.

That's Mikesmountain coins for you. Guy is a lot of really choice words that cannot be said on CCF. Gives them the MS70 treatment before sending them in. How NGC has not caught on by now when a sub comes in with who knows how many of the same identical toning. Should send a red flag, you'd think .

Agree, seller is a scammer.

The original sale is still available for me to see. He needs to get that much and the cost of grading back to break even.

Sadly, he'll have no problem recouping his money and then some. Should sell for well over that amount.

I congratulated him on his sale and sent him pics of my 09-s VDB and asked if he would dip that one and he said yes. He thought it would go MS62. He would do it to a $1500 coin. That's confidence. I asked ANACS if they would conserve it for $39 and they said no.

I'd side with ANACS, no need for anything on that one except maybe a quick acetone bath at most (precautionary, not knowing how it was previously handled/stored). Then send it in as is.
