    I also took Economics at uni... I now work as a professional economist, and can honestly say that I've only ever used 20% of the stuff that I learned at uni.  Econometrics was by far the most useful topic.
    And I completely agree with @vand - the blind faith put in those who have studied this 'dismal science' is astonishing, and scary.

    I hope this is a case of buying the coin, and not the slab.  That isn't Mint State anything, and I would be fairly urgently calling PCGS for additional verification that you haven't just bought a fake slab.
    That coin would struggle to reach XF40 on the obverse.
    Seriously, I don't mean to be dismissive, but you need to call PCGS and make urgent enquiries.
     
    Below is a true MS65 Obverse... the difference is vast.  Compare with the XF40...

    I'm sorry. On reflection, my poor attempt at banter comes across as a personal attack. For that, I apologise and will edit.
    My 'welcome' was genuine though! 😀

    I've gone for one - the option to return is too generous not to take a chance on this.

    An 1884-CC $20 Double Eagle; I think it's a good candidate for NCS conservation and will be sending it across to them for a 'touch-up', and subsequent grading from NGC.  The red spot at the top of the coin is either a very dark copper spot, or blood. 
    I'm not too sure on grade, but I think it might be able to achieve AU53-55.
    Picked up from HGM, after a post on the Gold Deals topic.

    HI Clens, 
     
    Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post. I am indeed the author. I have spent the past year writing this book and as far as I can tell only people from my facebook have bought it so I thought I better spread the word! Africa is a very interesting topic for me and having studied Risk at Master's level it came as no surprise that a lot of the studies were relevant, or focused completely on countries in Africa which I have included in the book.
    The book itself has not been reviewed by academics but a lot of the topics stem from theory taught on my masters and undergraduate degrees - so the content is very well informed. I have been investing in the markets since 2010 and so I have a lot of my own empirical observations which is coupled with the things I have learned at university. The book is also well referenced too. Sources for the featured facts are listed for validity. 
    In regards to some of the 'poor economics', there is discussion on the different poverty traps, inequality/foreign aid and its retardation effect on growth, land-locking and also how oil and autocratic governments damage economies - all of which relevant to Africa. I also included some work on the traps that impact island economies and used it to analyse Mauritius and the price of oil.
    If you go onto Amazon you can 'look inside' to see the content of the book. The preview doesn't show the seventh chapter which is a shame but you can see from the preview the general gist of the book. After spending so much of my life the past year writing the book I would love to see people reading my work!
    Best wishes,
    Levi

    They have a "controller" yes, but who controls the controller and does he/she really control editorial output?
    So you're saying the BBC is directly controlled by the EU and a Tory government
    and if so how come they have spent the last few years peddling anti-govenment propaganda and pushing a socialist agenda whenever possible?
    It's very easy to search the internet and find links that agree with whatever crackpot views you hold.
