    SovTracker reacted to SilverTanner in NGC Grading Submissions Open   
    The extra guarentee is nice but is it really worth anything given, for example, the price difference between AU50 and AU58 is large for most things and is more important than the colour of the label. I think using 'cleaned' for both 'surface hairlines' and 'improperly cleaned' is a massive step backwards. The former is often very slight and usually results from a wipe of the coin at some point, or movement in a pocket as they were often in circulation, whereas the latter is often as a result from a deliberate attempt to clean the coin and is the result of much harsher cleaning, dipping etc.
    I would guess as more and more old and world coins are graded the former would be more common and if this is NGCs way of accessing this very large market, unfortunately I think they have got it wrong.* Whilst most buyers of old world coins are not bothered by 'surface hairlines' as it is the nature of the beast they are by 'improperly cleaned' and would not buy the latter, as it is often very difficult to tell the level of these things, even from a very good photo, this has effectively now completely killed the market for those coins now just deemed 'cleaned' (unless major rarities) as the view would default to the risk of the much lower grade of 'improperly cleaned' which may just be scrap value if you could sell it at all.
    I wonder if PCGS will follow suit.
    *or do they just what everyone to now slab all the 'details' USA coins?

    A welcome change to me and my fellow OCD sufferers. In the end it's about the coin and not the slab/label.

    Save them and get full set of both graded and raw ones
    It is cheaper to buy them already graded, you never get the cost back
    Not even if they all get MS70, there are just to many already graded
    For example, there are about 265 000 pcs at NGC MS70 from 2016 alone
    If you buy an 2016 for 20$ and put 25$ in for grading, you are already in the minus
    a 2016 cost less than 40$ on ebay

    you should always look at sold pandas on ebay to get a grip on what they are going for
    Also check up census on NGC

    SovTracker got a reaction from Goldmick in London coin fair Feb 3rd   
    I have put it in my Diary! I come down on the Train from Wolverhampton to Euston. Only a 10 minute walk from the Station!

    Maybe those who attend should get together for a drink and a chat after?
    As the Fair is in February, all those on a dry January will be OK for a drink! The bar does a great G&T!

    Been there twice now - a great day out!

    Another new addition to the 1/4 oz gold World Collection - Picked up for $100 Less than the list price for a raw coin from the royal mint. I have to say that although many dislike this coin, it actually grows on you the more you look at it. (And No - Not like a wart )
