Another round of grading...
My guess is that all of us have gone through the pains of body bagged coins and learned what the technical terms are for altered coins the hard way. I know I have paid for many grades that were not to be in the past few years. Fortunately, I cut my teeth on some other grading services and now I hopefully have a little more discerning eye.
Well time will tell, as I've sent my first submission of 5 coins to NGC. I'm a Lincoln fanatic, so all 5 were MS lincolns.
Here's the tally -
1) 1909 VDB - Nice original coin from roll MS 64+ RD?
2)1909 VDB - Another coin from the same roll above MS 64+ RD - I'm hoping for maybe a 65 on this one...
3) 1934 - A coin with great eye appeal as it is toned, but toned coins always scare me due to the non-original surface issue... No guess on this one, only time will tell.
4) 1938 Proof - To me this is a beautiful coin, but I can't tell between a 64 or a 68 in early proofs. Again, I'll not hazard a guess, as I'm sure I'll be wrong and look like a complete fool when I say PF 65 RD!
5) 1946 D - Solid coin that will most probably be an MS 66 RD, but I can hope for a 67. Yeah, I know I'm dreaming...
They've been at NGC almost a week now, so I'll let you know in a few weeks what my first experience at NGC was like.
