  1. @Haven The reference we are creating here could use some help if you're interested. I have another layout/view for an overview that I can share with you, PM me if you would like to help us build it :)
  2. So, I have an active submission that has been with PCGS for 5 months now, just wondering what everyone elses situations are with submissions? Anyone experiencing such delays?
  3. I guess it depends if it's for collecting or resale then, as others have highlighted generally we want to see beautiful specimens!
  4. @Frank0215 Can confirm that it's just a die crack 🙂 I don't handle that many lizzys, but i don't think it's as common with them.
  5. Doubles don't often sell for much more than spot I don't think, though this year and a few others would be clear exceptions. I guess yes it would be the best value way to get the date into your collection, but then is your collection going to be doubles? 🙂
  6. Nothing changed for me since Brexit, maybe for Paris yes but for US things have always been the same. I agree with turnaround times in general but that's because the market has grown in the last 2 years and the businesses need more time to grow, which they are every day.
  7. https://auction.royalmint.com/auctions/catalog/id/23 Is this just another gimmick by the RM? Curious as to how they differ if at all from normal strikes, does anyone know more? I imagine they could just be selling bullion as trial pieces knowing them! 😄
  8. Really need to get it under a good microscope to tell that if S and 5 is similar on halves. On fulls its normally 5 and 3 that's the issue Do you have a loupe? Try photographing through it if so.
  9. "Cleaned" is typically for harsh cleaning, an ultrasonic (the cheap type off amazon) will be fine, but just use warm water and only for a minute or so. I would only use the ultrasonic if there is direct deep in the details, legend etc. It won't remove the surface dirt so much. A gentle wipe with your thumb under warm water is best for that. But do note, that dirt can cover up things, scratches and wear will look less obvious uncleaned.
  10. I'm sure I can spare a bullion Jubilee if you want one 🙂
  11. @Mike Yes I'm your man for any technical assistance you may need! 🙂 As for brand itself it really depends what you are after, I personally went with Netgear as it was more Enterprise focused but that was some time ago now and things may have changed. You say for home and work, do you have the secure network setup to handle that?
  12. Hi everyone, just wondering if anyone here talks directly with anyone higher up at NGC that would be able to assist in some form of partnership with us for usage of the reference? We have something in place with PCGS already, so it would be great to cover both grading bodies.
  13. First time I've seen them and 100% they are far better, but personally didn't like their "style". I'm crossing my 5 coins from this auction to PCGS so will show the differences when that time comes 🙂
  14. If you don't blindly cross coins you should get good results. A few of mine that didn't crossed I looked again, one got Details Cleaned (originally in NGC slab), and 100% the coin was cleaned!! shocking but cannot be angry that they didn't cross it of course. It's important to cross from one to the other if you buy a rare coin in one, and it isn't in your set on the other, that's the purpose for the acquisition in the first place if you're going for a competitive set
